Of course, in his opinion piece in the Christian Science Monitor, he states that the election did not accept the GOP into Congress and whatever other excuses you've been hearing for the last week. He goes into the mushy rationale that the electorate was smaller and that things could change in 2012.
However, he also believes that the Democrats will be able to play the Republican Party in the Congress to make themselves look better:
Now, this new GOP-led House will make sure that nothing of note passes, and will try to gum up the works further with investigations into President Obama’s birth certificate and other such insanities. There’s nothing Democrats can do about that, but with power comes responsibility, and presumptive Speaker John Boehner will be under pressure to walk the line between the ideological purity his tea party base demands, and the pragmatism of governing. When he fails (and he will), Democrats need to be ready to pounce.
He's willfully ignoring Republican proposals to cut the deficit and make sure that there are not the large tax hikes planned for the end of the year. He's also assuming that the President can deflect all of the potential investigations, rather than actually cooperate in cutting the budget. It's wishful thinking, I know, but this will be the Left's plan of attack for at least the next year.
