That’s a call to arms of the governing sort

“To Democrats: I would remind you that we still have the largest majority in decades, and the people expect us to solve problems, not run for the hills. And if the Republican leadership is going to insist that 60 votes in the Senate are required to do any business at all in this town — a supermajority — then the responsibility to govern is now yours as well. Just saying “no” to everything may be good short term politics, but it’s not leadership. We were sent here to serve our citizens, not our ambitions.” -Barack Obama, SOTU 2010.
