“To all my friends in Congress, understand that how business is done in this town has to change,” Obama said as he praised “responsible Republicans” for brokering the deal but denounced “the pressure from the extremes.”
A lecturing tone always wins converts, right?
He offered a blunt, almost taunting, message to his Republican opponents: “You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president, then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election.”
Tea Party Republicans won their seats in 2010 and 2012. Their gambit, foolish in my opinion, was nonetheless the expression of American citizens via our Constitutional system.
If Obama doesn’t like it, he can lump it.
