Cenk Uygur demolishes “The Bipartisanship Myth” at HuffPo, and writes the words I’ve been waiting to hear since last month’s midterms. He notes that “the real proof is in the numbers:”
Twenty-nine House seats and six Senate seats changed from Republican to Democrat. None changed from Democrat to Republican. Not one.
That's not bipartisanship. That's a 35-0 blowout.
The American people spoke loud and clear - we want to go in the direction of the Democrats. There were no mixed messages about the Democrats going halfway to meet the Republicans. If anyone has to move towards the middle it is clearly the Republicans. [emphasis added]
