These extremeist people are sad their team didn't win and want to beat someone up. A bunch of over dramatic idiots if you ask me.
Well its safe to say many on both sides take it personal. Look how contentious it got when Bush beat Gore. Really in many ways that was the start of really harsh politics. That and the repubs war against Clinton. Really those 2 things IMO are what led to things like the Senate leader being as vicious in his attacks of the repub nominee etc etc. Usually the leader of the houses is a bit more measured then that as you dont want to try and make deals with people who personally don't like you. its hard to work like that.
Maybe the fact they are forced to deal (sequestration) will lead to some cross asile friendships being mended and more deal making.
Still the big issue not even being talked about. Repubs are saying only mor revenue through closing loopholes, Obama wants to raise taxes on the rich, they only have a couple months to make a deal.
Pretty bad situation considering the Senate leader called Romney a tax cheat etc etc. Some Repubs still have power and won't forget the election. Obama not sitting as pretty as people think.
