Obama To Republicans: 'You Lost'

Obama to GOP: 'I won'
During a morning meeting with congressional leaders from both parties, President Obama acknowledged the philosophical differences between his stimulus package and the Republican plan – but, sources familiar with the conversation said, Obama then noted: “I won.” The exchange arose as top House and Senate Republicans expressed concern to the president about the amount of spending in the package. They also raised concerns about a refundable tax credit that returns money to those who don’t pay income taxes, the sources said.

Did Obama just boast he had 'political capital'?
