So now the President wants to compromise

President Obama said at this afternoon’s news conference that he is prepared to compromise with Republicans in light of yesterday’s election results.

Well, good for him. But before we go too far down that road, let’s be sure we know what he means by “compromise.”

If a train is hurtling down the track at 100 MPH toward a bridge that is out, it is not “compromise” to agree to slow the train to 70 MPH.
