What they say to the public and the media:
WASHINGTON (AP) Nov. 7, 2012 – President Barack Obama is sounding a conciliatory tone after his re-election victory, saying he has learned from those who supported him and those who opposed him. And he says he returns to Washington “more determined” and “more inspired.”
He said he’s hoping to work with Republicans to solve the nation’s problems.
What they say to each other and their supporters (I am on the President’s mailing list and received this e-mail today):
Friend –I want to make one thing absolutely clear:
We’re up against a whole lot more than just opposition in Congress.
We’re up against interest groups with money to burn — organizations willing to drop every last penny they have to stop President Obama’s agenda in its tracks. We’re already seeing it on gun violence, and immigration reform — they’re going to spend millions to throw a wrench in the works of progress.
You can be damned sure that this is not going to stop.
Organizing for Action is going to shift the balance of power in Washington back to real people. People like you have shown over and over again that no amount of spending can stop millions of Americans calling for change.
It’s going to take each of us rolling up our sleeves, getting to work, and chipping in what we can when we can.
We have our first fundraising deadline this weekend. Donate $5 or more right now to become a founding member of this organization: https://donate.barackobama.com/First-Deadline
This is going to be fun. If we do this right, the other side won’t know what hit ’em.

They have no intention of cooperating or “reaching across the aisle”. “The other side won’t know what hit ’em”, says Messina. They think it’s fun. It’s not about the future of the country. It’s not about school safety. It’s not about immigration reform. This is a game to them.
God help us.

You think that I don’t even mean
A single word I say
It’s only words, and words are all
I have to take your heart away
