President Barack Obama may have expressed humility during his conciliatory news conference Wednesday over the shellacking he took in the midterm elections, but just hours after speaking to the nation, he made it very clear in a phone call to left-leaning activist group MoveOn that he is not willing to compromise his core beliefs.
“We always knew bringing about change in Washington wouldn’t be easy, and it might get tougher in the days ahead,” Obama told the liberal organization's supporters a day after Republicans won the House in a landslide. “The message I took away from the elections is very simple: The American people are still frustrated. They still want change; we just have to work harder to deliver the change the American people want.”

Why is that as soon as the repub have a chance at being a part of the decision making process again, the first thing out of the dems mouth is "they need to compromise!!!". Where was that spirit of compromise and give and take during the last 18 months. They couldn't even get a meeting with the pres. Compromise doesn't flow in one direction - from repub. to dem. It is a 2 way street and the dems have shown no interest in the concept until Tues. and it has to come from the repubs. The problem that the dems don't get is this: Boehner said he won't compromise on principles. You have to tell the entire quote. And McConnell said he wants to make sure PBO is a 1 term pres. But, I bet he can do that by making sure the repub work on the economy/war and get it right which will defeat PBO. It isn't either/or. It is in tandum.

Oh and btw, there will be no compromising, he'll do what he can by EO. And the GOP will do what they can to reverse what they can.
