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.

And the majority in Congress can tell Hussein: “Bam: We won, deal with it. (”The majority of voters agreed with us.)
Why don’t these eunuchs just go ghetto on Hussein and his flying monkeys? Every time one of the dems opens his/her mouth just go into intimidation mode. It’s the only thing the dems understand. Don’t they understand that THEY won, too? THEY have a mandate, too.
Whenever a Republican wins by such a slim margin, we always see editorials on how he needs to govern with consideration to the other side. But such editorials never happen when a Dem wins.
no you cheated, the majority agreed with mitt
B/S he robbed this election in WI, FL, OH, VA, they concentrated on Dem counties and then cheated because even now these results still do not add up and we only have to see one man fighting this who has balls here and that is Col West.
Votes not counted, stuffed votes in bags hidden in corners, dead people.
Even last weekend I came across two students from OH who were bragging how they voted in OH and yet voted in FL where they go to school
A corrupted election does not a mandate make.
This jackass will never understand that he can’t lead a People that refuse to follow.
With fewer votes than George Bush won in 2004. Yes, a "mandate". (Oddly, that wasn't what the MSM called it in 2004.)
So, if you ran on the platform of, let’s say, cutting our armed forces in half, would we republicans be expected to go along?
No, just because you win an election does not mean the other side has any obligation to abandon their principles. We believe raising taxes on job creators in an economy that may be slipping back into recession is a horrible idea, and will not be a party to it.
Liberals never abandon their core beliefs when they lose elections, do they? No, they double down on their positions.
Ok, so a compromise is where each side gives up a little bit to arrive at a package solution. What is the other side going to give up? What is each side going to receive? In my recollection, it seems when I am asked to compromise, it is implied that I give up everything and get nothing in return. Is that what this “compromise” is about, again?
By the way, the US Constitution, which your side swore to uphold (remember that?), identifies those areas in which there is no need to compromise. Those areas are limitations on gov’t power—areas where gov’t cannot go. I assume you aren’t asking to “compromise” those areas, are you? Are you?
No truer words were ever written. Leftists never compromise. It's always the GOP and especially conservatives who have to sell out their principles in the name of "compromise".
We're back to the same old punk Hussein from 2009 telling us to "sit in the back of the bus because I'm driving." Well all I can say is SCREW THAT!!!! It's time for Boehner and the GOP to grow a spine and start fighting this agenda. Hey you lost anyway, you might as well go down swinging. If what the MSM says is true, we're never going to elect another Republican in this country , because all voters are either Black, Hispanic, Gay , Transgender or Unemployed and all they want is government handouts, so while you're still in office you might as well flip Hussein the bird and make his lame duck term truly lame. </rant>
"Maybe peace would have broken out with a different kind of White House, one less committed to waging a perpetual campaign -- a White House that would see a 51-48 victory as a call to humility and compromise rather than an irrefutable mandate." --Barack Obama on Bush's marginal defeat of John Kerry in 2004. (Audacity of Hope)
“majority of voters agreed with me.
No, the vote counters agreed with you!
Yeah, and he has “a mandate” to cheat in swing states too.
What are you ranting about “compromise”????????? I said ubama stole the election.
He holds power illegally, see?
He’s claiming that people who didn’t vote for him agree with him. And the media will give him a pass on that too.
I just told a rather large abrasive black woman in a parking lot soliciting money that she needs to ask Obama to give her money for her charity.
And I walked away.
I don’t feel any guilt or any compunction about this. I will no longer give any of my really hard earned cash to those who do not share my values.
Yes, Obama won. Deal with it.
Democrats win: elections have consequences
Republicans win: must reach across the aisle
