    The GOP would do best by making Obama's veto pens run out of ink. Let him veto hundreds of bills, regardless if the veto's can be overturned or not.
    Or they could send him responsible bills that actually help our country, but that would require congress to be populated by adults. So your hopes will most likely be the rule of the next two years.

    Are "responsible bills" only those with which you would agree as to content?
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    I'm referring to bills that were not specifically crafted with the intent of forcing Obama to veto them, including (and this is the going to be the first of many, I guarantee you) the repeal of the PPACA.

    My guess is the first would be the Keystone Pipeline, but I see you didn't answer the question......

    As I understand it, there were certain environmental concerns regarding the construction of the pipeline, and the rush to approve it forced Obama to squash it if a comprehensive report of the potential risks couldn't be made first. But Obama did say that he wasn't adverse to a pipeline in the future, so if environmental concerns are addressed there's no reason why he couldn't sign.

    Which is precisely why the environmental concerns won't be addressed.

    The State Department has already stated there are negligible environmental risks...

    And if that's true then I imagine Obama would sign it. So that just leaves the question: what will be needlessly slipped into the bill that would force Obama to veto it?

    That report was released two years ago and the President could approve its construction without congressional action...

So we acted again, and voted to oust those republicans for more democrats. No change, or worse than before. And we now act again. To flip the house again.


    Will there be a change, and if there is, will it just be worse than before?


    How many times will it take before we see the futility of it?

    Well, republicans? How many times are you willing to risk it? Democrats? How many times? How much is your skin worth? How many more chances do you think you're going to get?
    Its not like we have a real choice, just two evils to choose between.
