Grover Norquist: Obama "Thinks Somebody Made Him King"
GROVER NORQUIST: We were in exactly this point two years ago when the same things were discussed with Obama during the debt ceiling increase. And at the end of the day we ended up with $2.5 trillion in spending savings, and not a dollar in tax increases.
Why? Because Obama overplayed his hand. He's doing it again, just as he did in 2008. He thought that the country had given him a blank sheet of paper to work on. He did the stimulus spending. He went from 70 percent support down to below 50. He lost the House.
Now he gets re-elected with less strength, not against a war hero but against a guy from Massachusetts. And the Republicans have the House and he thinks somebody made him king. And he's going to have more taxes, more spending and more regulations.
It's a real problem for him. He doesn't have the mandate he thinks he does. So, I think he takes us over the cliff because he has blinders on. He doesn't see where he stands in the universe.
