Skip to comments.News Clip of Obama Saying 'We Won - You Lost'

If memory serves me correctly - there was a news clip in the early part of the Obama term where he addressed the lack of bipartisan support for health care. He said something to the effect "We won - you lost, get over it".
I have been searching for the clip and cannot find anything. Was this my imagination - does anyone else recall this event? ... Please help an old man with his memory ... ;-)
I think it was one of his aids, Immanuel or Axelrod, maybe.
I remember him saying something to the effect of....elections have consequences and I won, to Bonner. Not sure I ever saw a clip though.
I believe this may be what you’re referring to. I think it was a report about what he said rather than actual footage of him saying it.
The arrogance of this man is unprecedented.
Simply because he won an election, he believed he had the power to ram his agenda through a Democratic Congress and onto the American people.
The lofty, inspirational rhetoric of I want to listen to you especially when we disagree, quickly transformed into I won, you lost, get over it.
During the Obamacare debates Obama did a round table discussion with members of congress which was televised. Lots of congressmen were present including Ryan and John McCain. When McCain got a change to speak he made a point to which Obama very condescendingly responded with something like, “Sorry John but you lost the election”. I’m sure there’s video of it somewhere.
I remember he said it to Boehner during early 2009 in a ‘bi-partisan’ meeting with Congress at the White House. I don’t believe it was on video, just reported to have being said by those in attendance.
“When McCain got a change to speak he made a point to which Obama very condescendingly responded with something like, Sorry John but you lost the election. Im sure theres video of it somewhere.”
That is the exact kind of sound-bite video that the Romney Campaign needs to be running in the swing states so that they can show everyone the arrogance of Obama.
Even if you could find the video or that statement and send it to Fox News of Rush Limbaugh it would be a great help to defeat Obama.
He didn’t just believe it, he did it.
“He didnt just believe it, he did it.”
At least when Mitt Romney is inaugurated in January, he will not have the arrogance of Obama and will not likely attempt to push his agenda through Congress.
This clip, alone, with the now-familiar insulting and disengaged body language which precedes his comment, tells all anyone should want to know about the leadership intentions and ability of this man.
