If the newly president's policy agenda sucks then the losing party should oppose it.

Obligation to support the newly elected president -- yes.

Obligation to support the Newly elected President's agenda -- no.

It's called "loyal opposition" for a reason, folks.

It's too early to really tell, but in a couple of years we may be talking about President Walker.

Absolutely not. if anything to the extent he needs the support of the other party it is incumbent upon the President to go out and get it -- hes really the one who has to give - assuming he needs their support -- not them

I don't think so. The opposition has the responsibility to it's constituents to be true to them however. When the President suggests a middle class tax cut--something that Romney ran on--and the GOP suddenly opposes it; it becomes pretty clear pretty quickly that the opposition is just there to oppose whatever he proposed.
