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.

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.
