Obama Lectures GOP – Won't Allow an "I Win, You Lose" Mentality

Talk about projection…
Barack Obama– January 2009.
The Politico:

President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.

CNN:

He also noted that a large number of bills have been subjected to Republican-led filibusters, only to receive 85 or 90 votes once the filibuster is broken and the legislation is allowed to move to a final vote. I’m “not open to switches” solely “because it’s good short-term politics,” he said. I won’t tolerate an “if you lose, I win” mentality.
