Because elections DO have consequences and the democrats only carried the Senate - they didn't win the House.How Obama Shouldnt Back Down Vs. the GOP
Elections are supposed to have consequences. So why does the GOP think it can strong-arm the president into compromising on entitlements without first giving in on taxes?
Personally - I say Santa won fair and square - give him everything he wants and when he is finished wrecking the country it will be decades before another democrat could get elected dog catcher.
Congrats on the win - now do something. What happened to the holy Obamessiah bringing everyone together. Are his powers not up to the challenge on the very first issue? He won the election but he won't be able to do anything - kind of like the last four years. Sorry you had your hopes up about that shining new future - it appears it isn't coming.
