“The time for putting party first is over,” Obama wrote on his Twitter account. “If you want to see bipartisan #compromise, let Congress know. Call. Email. Tweet.”

a little while later, he tweeted this:

“Voters with Republican reps in IL: Make sure your representative knows you support a balanced approach to reducing the deficit. #compromise”

and some replies:

Senator Jeff Sessions, (R-AL) was among the GOP lawmakers hit by the Twitter attack. His staff referred to a statement the senator made on the floor of the Senate.

“The president thinks this is about him,” Sessions said. “It’s all about him. This is about America, and what’s good for this country. It’s not about the president. It’s not about politics.”

Many Twitter users have expressed disgust that @barackobama would do something so partisan just a few hours after delivering a statement calling for bipartisanship.

“@barackobama believes that ‘compromise’ only means changing Republican minds,” wrote @Mullis_for_Tift. “His way or nothing.”

@gcl_iv wrote: “He’s a community organizer. He can’t help but rally people against the opposition.”

The @barackobama account is run by the Obama 2012 campaign staff – but the President also tweets from this account.
