Skip to comments.For Obama, A Stinging Rebuke ("With humility", Obama to call for 'new era of bipartisanship')
Posted on 11/02/2010 7:42:05 PM PDT by kristinn
The most pressing question as Mr. Obama picks through the results on Wednesday morning will be what lessons he takes from the electoral reversals. Was this the natural and unavoidable backlash in a time of historic economic distress or was it a repudiation of a big-spending activist government? Was it primarily a failure of communications as the White House has suggested lately or was it a fundamental disconnect with the values and priorities of the American public?
He will read the results carefully and hear the messages the American people are sending, David Axelrod, the presidents senior adviser and top political guru, said in an interview. I think hell do that with care and with humility. But hes also very centered, and his impulse is to focus on what we do next and how we respond in a way thats constructive.
Mr. Obama will start on Wednesday with a call for the country to put the polarizing elections behind it and forge bipartisanship for a new era, aides said. He plans to hold an afternoon news conference to directly address the public frustration that led to the Republican groundswell, and will invite leaders of both parties to meet to develop a common agenda to fix the economy and tame the deficit.

Today is a complete repudiation of the Obama agenda.

lol....Only the NYT....
It's way past time for the Pubbies to be gracious. We need to be fighting in the streets and kicking them in the nads. And for Pete's sake, send in the Marines to that national park in Arizona that's been taken over by those pig illegals.
Freedom doesn’t have anything in common with Marxism.
There is no way this man means to ‘find a common agenda’.
My bet he’s trying to keep a toehold on his power until he can complete the Marxist transformation he and his logo represent.
Self-centered for sure.
He's a narcissistic piece of filth.
Obama.... care and humility.... Har!
NO, Obama, NO! You are spending 200 million dollars a day for security and whatever your little heart desires in India! May you get impeached, kicked out of the Presidency and spend the rest of your life in jail!!
a good start on that would be for Obama to resign immediately, get down on his knees and grovel and beg for forgiveness from the American people.
Barack 0bama says:
“Now that I’ve been humiliatingly rebuked by the American people I ask that Republicans voluntarily dilute their mandate and cooperate with me by passing things that I want passed. Thank you very much.”
Bipartisanship? What ever happened to “I won”?
NO BIPARTISANSHIP - we don’t compromise with Marxists!!!
This guy Obama has been one “H” of a costly mistake. The totals are going up faster, I mean faster than at the gas pump.
President Axelrod left out a word there.
You mean like the bipartisanship you used to get Obamacare through? H%&^, no.
Go pound sand Obummer. No retreat for us...your day is OVER. Bipartisanship my ass...
