Key political point number 1:
I heard President Barack Obama this morning on Face the Nation saying the message he took from this week's election was that people want Washington to work. He said that's what the voters have shown they wanted in several elections now. He implied, as others in his Administration have said explicitly, that the election's message was for Republicans to work with the President to accomplish things.
Yeah, NO! If voters wanted Congressmen and Senators to work with Obama, they would have voted for Democrats. Instead, they voted for people who would stop a lot of the things the President wants to do.
Key political point number 2:
Charles Krauthammer published a political insight back in 2002 that is still absolutely true.
"To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law:
Conservatives think liberals are stupid.
Liberals think conservatives are evil."
