This is not homeschool related, but it is something that I’m interested in and is related to studies in U. S. government. In another news report headlined, "Obama to GOP: ‘I won.’" I read that President Obama met with Congressional leaders in the Roosevelt Room of the White House and listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning, but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. "I won," Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation. Of course Obama won. Everyone knows that. However, George Bush won in 2000, and again in 2004, but Democrats proceeded for the next eight years to do nothing but whine, complain, criticize, balk, and in general do everything they could to delegitimize his win and block his agenda. Why, then, does Mr. Obama seem to feel that Republicans should just fall down as dead before him simply because he "won"?
