They’ve said nothing today, and apparently will say nothing tomorrow until after President Obama’s 1 pm news conference, according to POLITICO.
This suggests they are planning a major statement by Obama that they don’t want to preempt or distract from. And I assume this will amount to a suspension of Obama’s vitriol and the return of hope and change.
“You are no longer my enemies, and let us ride in the front seat together.”
Yes, now that Republicans have power, Obama will actively seek the type of cooperation that so far has mainly been rhetorical. Now that they can’t be steamrollered, he’ll want to make deals, for real this time. And he’ll accuse them of bad faith when they don’t abandon their principles for him.
