It’s not just Republicans who are upset with the policies of President Barack Obama. His liberal base is angry too, viewing his talk of compromise with the newly resurgent GOP as an abandonment of his liberal values, The Hill reports
Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, says the White House misinterpreted election results. “It’s less ‘Oh no, they’re triangulating,’ and more ‘Boy, their political instincts are really stupid,’” he tells The Hill. The White House “fundamentally” doesn’t get that “the only way to get Republicans to deal in good faith is to fight them, crush them and teach a lesson that if Republicans are on the wrong side of an issue, there will be consequences. ... So it makes no sense to negotiate,” Green says.
