Obama: Republicans Will Have to Learn to Get Along With Me
Published October 13, 2010 | FoxNews.com
President Obama reveals in a magazine article that he is weighing what to do if Republicans win the House majority next month, and has come up with a novel approach: Make the GOP work with him.
In a seeming twist on the post-1994 midterm calculation made by President Bill Clinton -- when Republicans pummeled Democrats in the congressional election -- Obama said he thinks Republicans will have to move in his direction no matter the outcome of the Nov. 2 vote.
"It may be that regardless of what happens after this election, they feel more responsible," he is quoted saying in the Sunday edition of The New York Times Magazine, "either because they didn't do as well as they anticipated, and so the strategy of just saying no to everything and sitting on the sidelines and throwing bombs didn't work for them, or they did reasonably well, in which case the American people are going to be looking to them to offer serious proposals and work with me in a serious way."
Accusing the public of mistaking his abilities, the president also told the magazine that he's a little taken aback that voters are disappointed with the current turn of events in his administration.
"The mythology has emerged somehow that we ran this flawless campaign, I never made a mistake, that we were master communicators, everything worked in lockstep," Obama is quoted saying.

Oh and the obligatory "FAIL"..........
Why? They’ll have the checkbook.
is \biden writing his speeches now? That kind of jackassary is jaw dropping.
His attitude is a little unnatural and that is disturbing. This is an assistant lecturer, not a master politician.
This time the GOP can tell Obozo “you lost, we won.”
1) Republicans can de-fund a lot of the bad stuff.
2) Republicans can tie up a lot of the czars and bureaucrats with investigations.
3) Imam Baraq will go stark raving mad over gridlock.
Doesn’t “Obommie the Commie” get the point? we are voting OUT his cronies because we do NOT want to just get along.
Let’s see, if the electorate says “get lost” to the Dems because of the legislation they passed, which was signed by Obama - it’s just their way of saying to the Republicans, “please play nice with the stinking socialist in the White House”? Did I miss a chapter?
LOLOLOL..........no doubt about it, he’s on crack.
Compromise with a communist is subversion.
A blind, stupid ego.
His arrogance knows no bounds.
“make the GOP work with you?”....riiiiight. I’m sure they’re going to just jump at that opportunity, especially when they’ll control the purse strings, the congress, and after you spent two years lambasting them for all ‘your’ failures (hint, hint Barry, the DIMs controlled congress for four years, it’s them you should be mad at) and blaming Bush for everything. Ya, you let me know how that turns out.
If the GOP doesn’t get in his face every-single-day of their majority term I will be very, very upset.

The mid term election clearly indicated that the American people wanted bi-partisanship. The electorate was not satisfied with having only Democrats agree with me, they desired that Republicans also agree with me. There can be no other interpretation. Now, where did I put my golf clubs?
Jackass still thinks it is all about HIM.
Just when I think his pronouncements can’t be any more detached from realty, he comes up with this gem. What a colossal dick.
He doesn’t see himself as being in the office of President, he actually believes it’s all about him personally. Me... I want... my my my.
His arrogance is about to meet its bounds. The new Congress has the power of the purse.
Let me be clear..............., it is YOU that needs to learn to get along with Republicans.
The Republicans should treat Obama with the same respect and cordiality as the Democrats treated Bush - /sarc
with the current gop leaders, not going to happen. They’re going to negotiable with obama over which arm he could chop off and the gop will settle with one arm and call it a victory
As usual, Stroker gets it bass-ackwards.
The boy is just dumber than a bag of hammers.
Hurry up, 2012!
Humpty Dumpty is falling off the wall.
Crybaby Obama sat on a wall,
Crybaby Obama had a great fall;
Threescore men and threescore more,
Could not place Crybaby Obama as he was before.
Obama—crash and burn here, crash and burn now.
What a freak.
A FR poster noted a few months ago that it appears he absolutley does not care what anyone thinks about him.
It is very disturbing.
I’m doing the best I can... see 29. ;>)
Try resigning if you can't take it like a man.
I do not believe the great middle class are willing to just sit down anymore.
As long as the president doesn’t engage in blatant obstructionism and willingly signs the repeal of obamacare and other items on the legislative agenda, I’m sure they’ll get along just fine.
I’d say it stands a chance of happening, does Obama really want to be known as the “president of no”?
What a rude, nasty, whining, condescending loser. I can’t take it.
Wow! Until now I believed we had a Marxist living in the WH. Now I realize we have an utter moron Marxist living in the WH!
obamma mamba jamma lenin khomeini will not ever admit his vision failed, he will keep trying to force bills through by tying them to things the repubs want, andthen he will tll the country they are holding up progress like he is doing with the bush tax cuts expiring, he will say they ar holding up progress and voted no on the extension of middle income tax cuts to keep the rich protected..They better be ready for thos commie dork..grow sone stone nads and throw him in the ditch, a few well placed, Mr President , you sir are a commie liar in public, and a fight on allllll things his dork ass wants.. Should the pubs getr power don’t let important bills get bundled to porkulus..down with da bummer!!!
Inside the bunker, April, 1945:
“The Russians will just have to get along with me...”
- Der Fuehrer
Congressional majorities? Gone. Political goodwill that comes with the office? Gone.
Guess he'll just have to use his dynamic personality and wealth of charisma to get his agenda pushed through the second half of his first term.
This time the GOP should tell Obama, we won, now where is your birth certificate???
And he thinks he’s working with the party of ‘No’ now? Just you wait Seniorheh Obama...just you wait.
I’m actually hoping the Obamanation follows through on that attitude. It will mean we’re finally done with him in 2012. (I.e., no Clintonesque pivot.)
I’d impeach the bastard.
