WASHINGTON President Obama set the table for new talks on the fiscal cliff with a brash reminder to Republicans: He won the election.
And that means the GOP must compromise on boosting taxes on the rich, Obama said.
If there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and Mr. [Mitt] Romney, it was, when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, I argued for a balanced, responsible approach, Obama said at a White House press conference.

The only “mandate” Bummer has is with Mooch.
John Bohner also won. The president has no better mandate than the Speaker.
For the jug eared messiah to think so is delusion
The majority of voters agreed on a lot of things at one time or another. They agreed at one time with slavery, they agreed with no Gay marriage in California, they agreed that they did not want or like Obamacare when they voted for Scott Brown to be the crucial vote in the Senate. I am not moved by this argument because when the majority agree with things that we vote for it is seen as a signal for the Left to rebel and redouble their efforts and fight harder than ever by going to courts, protesting, or whatever it takes. They don’t shut up. We no longer shut up.
And the GOP House can say “the majority of voters agree with us” — so STFU.
Actually it was posted on Facebook. I believe the http://patriotpost.us/ remembered.
Class action lawsuit concerning the raping and pillaging of the USA—read some of the lawsuit-—makes you wonder if this might be the “wound to the head”.
“A majority of the voters elected a house of representatives that are pledged to oppose your statist agenda.”
True. However, Obama and Holder have the FBI files of the Republican House and Senate members. How many elected Republicans have the moral lapses of Newt Gingrich, Bob Livingstone, Mark Sanford, John Ensign, Jack Ryan (could have beaten Obama for US Senator and saved us from the mess we are in), Rudolph Guiliani, and of course Arnold Schwarzenegger? How many Republican House members have made money on insider information gleaned in a committee hearing? How many have skimmed their campaign funds? How many have taken free trips on corporate aircraft or vacationed courtesy of big contributors?
Sorry, the Republicans with skeletons will fold and tell us they got the best deal possible. After all, those stupid conservatives have nowhere else to go at election time. They’ll be angry for a few months but they’ll show up to vote Republican in 2014.
