Obama won the Presidency, won the popular vote by close to 3 million and won the electoral college by probably more than 120 votes. The republicans control half of the Legislative branch. The meme should be the GOP needs to compromise. How are the losers calling the shots? Edit: I'm not disagreeing with Compromise. It's not a dirty word for me. But the Republicans often behave like terrorists, ready to hold the government and country hostage, Why do we continue to enable them?
