    Richard Mourdock: Bipartisanship Ought To Be Democrats Siding With The GOP

    "Reacting to a statement from Lugar slamming his embrace of an "unrelenting partisan mindset," Mourdock said, "I have a mindset that says bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view," he said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends."

    He continued, "I've said many times through this campaign that one of the things I hope to do is to help build a conservative majority in the United States Senate and continue to help the House build a Republican majority and have a Republican White House and then bipartisanship becomes having Democrats come our way. So that’s what we’re working towards and I think in the days ahead, Mr. Lugar will join our effort."


    Soledad O'Brien pressed him on his notion of compromise, saying, "In fact, the only compromise you'll do is really getting other people on the other side of the aisle to come to your side of the aisle, which I guess is the definition against compromise..."

    "Well, it is the definition of political effectiveness," he replied"



    Is anyone impressed by such intransigence ?


    Do you think voters are going to respond positively or negatively to such Tea Party candidates that just promise no compromise up front ?


    I personally think the US majority have had enough of this and that this time around unlike in 2010, this tactic will backfie in 2012
