    If they wanted Obama's agenda to be enacted exactly as he said, they should have voted Democrats into the House. They didn't. So Obama is forced to compromise.

    •  That's too succinct (0+ / 0-)

      But true. And none of the "Obama sucks @ poker" losers here @ DK get that.

      No matter how Obama had negotiated on the fiscal cliff, the GOP will still hold us all hostage.

    •  They tried (0+ / 0-)

      Democrats won the House popular vote (by about a million votes, if I remember correctly).  That we don't control the chamber is a consequence of Republican state legislatures having gerrymandered all of the districts into oblivion.

      That said, your main point, that Obama is forced to compromise because we don't control the House, is spot-on.
