Yeah let's just ignore Obama's rhetoric as though the Republicans in the house were elected to allow him to infinetly expand the size of gov't. They were voted in to stop him. Only 51% of the Country voted for him, harldy an overwhelming mandate.
You seem to be on shaky ground when one considers the fact that very large majorities approve of Obama and disapprove of House Republicans, who kept their majority through gerrymandering.
So free elections are gerrymandering. In every poll Americans by a majority prefer smaller gov't. They simply disconnect Obama from his policies with the help of a complicit Media. As he says one thing and does another.
Examples, please? Sources? I'll grant you that Americans are often contradictory about their views, and that media sometimes drives opinion. Just look at how conservative media had you guys sure that Romney would win by a landslide.
http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/pol... And outside of Dick Morris I don't anybody who believed it was going to be any thing less than a close election. Which it was with the President getting 51%
Put that 51% into real numbers. 2% of all voters is a few million. Not so meager anymore is it? I think I'm just fed up with the losing Republicans telling the rest of us that we are stupid, ignorant or insane. We won! You lost! Accept it. Move on.
You're the only one using that language. But neither party really lost. The house was not elected to embrace his agenda. And they also won their elections to maintain a majority. And 2% swing in the electorate is hardly inconcievable.

@ Nathan. the link didn't post properly. Jan 26th 2013 survey by Rassmussen 62% of Americans prefer smaller gov't with fewer services.

No, their objective is to work towards a balanced budget. Which is nearly impossible with a President, his party, and a bunch of country club Republicans who simply doesn't see a problem with the size of gov't as it currently stands.
