An audacious, confrontational approach to the midterm defeat is very much in vogue among Democrats, especially liberal firebrands who believe that a more concentrated version of the party’s ideology would have given more reason for inert coalition members to get to the polls.  What the president heard from the two thirds of adults who did not vote was that they wanted more, more, more of his agenda.

We probably shouldn’t be surprised at the Democrats’ stunning lack of insight, led overall by a rabble-rousing President fomenting dissent only for the sake of disruption to promote his dream of a socialist America.

What’s interesting is the GOP views the voters’ mandate as a blessing on their agenda to continue steering the Republican party to the middle.

Interesting, but sad.  The losing party says it will purify and concentrate its ideology, while the ascending party refuses to do so.

The very real stand-off here is not between the Democrat and Republican parties.  The real stand-off is between the American people, who deserve better from lawmakers we elect to represent us, and the parties, who — despite the results from November 4 — remain focused on their own futures and survival.
