"Republicans will have to..."
Funny thing. Anyone want to give me an example of when DEMOCRATS "had to" do anything they didn't want to do as a result of an election verdict?
Didn't the GOP sweep the House elections in 2010? Why was that not a "sign" to the Democrats?
The fact that "bipartisanship" means "doing it the Democrats' way" is the primary reason we're in the ungodly fiscal mess we're in.
