Fall Elections 2010- #2369 - David Limbaugh - Obama Doesn't Seek Compromise; Neither Should We - Townhall

I take no great pleasure in having been correct in predicting Barack Obama's reaction to his Tuesday "shellacking." To borrow his terminology, he is wired not to hear the American people's opposition to his radical agenda, as painfully demonstrated in his postelection news conference.

Clinton came to power as a centrist “New Democrat,” pledging to avoid the big government excesses of an older generation of liberals. Obama campaigned for activist government with a host of new initiatives, welcoming comparisons with FDR.  Read more.......  Articles contributed by Steve Peters.
