On Friday, Obama met with Republican leaders after the massive “ass-whooping” he received in the midterms. The event was billed as a “bipartisan lunch,” and it looks that way in the video footage above. However, when the cameras were shut off, Obama lashed out at Republicans, making it clear that he has no intention of compromising or working with them over the next two years.
“The president instead of being contrite or saying in effect to America, ‘I hear you,’ as a result of the referendum on his policies that drove this last election, he seems unmoved and even defiant,” Senator John Cornyn of Texas told the Associated Press. “I don’t know why he would want to sabotage his last two years as president by doing something this provocative,” Cornyn continued.

A senior House Republican aide reported that the meeting was tense, and when you see the seating arrangements, you’ll understand why. Obama was situated between John Boehner and his henchman Harry Reid, who barely said a word throughout the entire lunch. Nancy Pelosi was to Boehner’s right.
When the conversation turned to immigration, things got heated. Obama stated that his patience was running out on the issue, hinting that he will take executive action soon. The President has been in hot water with the Hispanic community over the lofty amnesty promises he made, which he has not yet delivered on. As a result, he has lost a substantial amount of his voter base from that demographic. Vice President Joe Biden attempted to extend a hand to Republicans, asking Boehner how long his party would need to work on legislation, but Obama cut him off completely.
It looks as though the “shellacking” Obama received last Tuesday has done nothing to tame his tyrannical agenda. Republicans are going to be faced with an uphill battle for the remainder of his presidency.
