No big deal. Just your party losing its Senate majority because of you. A historic landslide gives the GOP the biggest share of the House in almost a century.
75 percent of voters think you need to rethink your policies.
Despite losing the Senate, Obama doesn’t think too much should be read into election results from a handful of states that never approved of his job performance in the first place.
That’s right. You guys never liked me anyway. I don’t care what you think!
Obama acknowledges that he needs to do better, and he will make modest adjustments to his staffing, messaging and legislative strategy in response.
How modest of him.
But he won’t pivot to the right, as he did after his self-proclaimed shellacking in 2010, White House officials said in interviews this week.
By “pivot to the right”, he means express occasional concern over his own massive national debt… without actually meaning it.
Obama will strike a tone of compromise and accountability during his public remarks Wednesday
He’ll strike the tone after just announcing that he doesn’t mean it.
Obama won’t back down from using his administrative powers, including plans to issue an executive order on immigration that could be the most aggressive unilateral action of his presidency. He’ll adhere to a progressive agenda that, officials said, will keep the base excited, position his party to win back the Senate and hold the White House in 2016, and seal his legacy.
All hail the Emperor.
Who cares about the legislators. He still has another two years of rule in which he can do anything he wants and taunt Congress and the Supreme Court to stop him.
“You can’t lose your base,” a second senior administration official said. “There are policy things we are going to have to support where the base isn’t there. But you’ve got to keep your eye on your base.”
I hope the Republicans remember that message.
