    1. Take a hard line, veto everything and EO anything he can.

    The problem with this approach is that,

    1. He doesn't have the courage to buck the Republicans AND Democrats who want to work with the Republicans.
    2. He will do more harm to Democrats than good.

    2. Act like he's working with the Republicans while he uses his bully pulpit and the media to put them and their ideas in a bad light.

    This is really the only good course he can take. Anything else will either make his own Democrat buddies mad at him and/or hurt the Democrats going into the 2016 Presidential election.

    He's a lame duck and he really needs to accept that fact.


    Yeah, and now BO peep best not have any serious scandals come out this next year......as then it wont matter about that temporary Pen he carries.

    Nope. We saw after 2010 that that's Who He Is.

    Brown is the epitome of establishment democrat. So is Clinton. It will be amusing watching them pretend otherwise.

I like it better once Cooper takes over.

    I'll sometimes go to Fox, but can't stay on it long as some of their commentators just bore me. However, Meghan Kelly has been very good and entertaining throughout the night when I switch over.

    I almost never listen to MSNBC, but I'm engaging in a little bit of Schadenfreude now and watching MSNBC. I'm kind of shocked to not see some nooses hanging out in the background.
    I'm trying hard to not give in to schadenfreude. But I am delighted that Charlie Crist has been defeated and also Wendy Davis in Texas. Not the humiliatingly ignominious defeat that I would truly enjoy because she's just a terrible person, but at least she did decisively lose.

    We certainly need to get out of the pattern of actions and response that we currently seem to be stuck in. It's not any good for the country.

    I'd support single terms for ALL elected federal representatives.

    No chance.
    Brown would be 78yo on election day 2016.
    He's still pretty sharp, but he's really too old.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I agree we didn't see Obama want to cooperate, but I wouldn't go so far as to say vindictive.

    Not this bad, or have you not seen the poll results vs predictions?
