So the Republicans win the Senate, the House, and a bunch of contested gubernatorial elections, and President Obama responds by 1) signing a deal with China promising to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and 2) letting it be known that he will take executive action to give work permits and shield from deportation 5 million illegal immigrants. Am I missing something here? Or is Obama? It's almost as if he's pretending the election did not happen. It's certainly not signaling a willingness to work together with Republicans on Republican priorities. It's almost as if Mr. Obama agrees with Professor Gruber about "the stupidity of the American voter" and the ends justifying the means.
