    Obama has two years left, and my view at least early on going into this is that unlike other Presidents at his time frame, (Clinton, Bush jr.) Obama will NOT work with the majority to soften his legacy. In fact, I suspect that now is when he will 'step on the gas' so to speak, and ramp up his brand of lawless rule, and dare this new majority with its all but feckless leadership to do something to him...I hope for the country's sake that isn't true, but we will see.

    He wont be like Bill Clinton and try to work things out.....he would rather fight Republicans, on all he can. Keep the country divided.

    I figured his first thought was they will come after my special package, and money maker for me. That he would be defensive about things. But in order for BO to understand what can be done to him he needs to see some action before the understanding sets in thru his grey matter. Just sayin.

    I think that's right, but unfortunately we have Boehner, and McConnell out front right now, and they came out of the gate misreading what the voters were saying....

    "Fresh from his own re-election victory and his party’s powerful showing nationwide, Senator Mitch McConnell on Wednesday pledged to break the stalemate in Washington as newly empowered congressional Republicans moved quickly to demonstrate that they can get things done. “We’re going to pass legislation,” Mr. McConnell said at a news conference in Louisville, Ky. “This gridlock and dysfunction can be ended.”

    Despite their new majority in the Senate and an expanded one in the House, Republicans face multiple difficulties, not the least of which are internal divisions. But they say they know they have to deliver or face a backlash in 2016.

    “I think it really becomes important to appear to want to be a governing party rather than a complaining party,” said Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri, a member of the party leadership. “My belief is we have about six months before the American people check that box one way or the other.”

    What a bunch of buffoons....They come out giving Demo's the roadmap for making them look incompetent, and all but say that they won't hold the lawlessness of this administration accountable in favor of "getting things done"....My God! We want them to stop doing things! Every time they do they screw it up!

    Lynch was picked as she will fight for BO. To cover BO's ass. Not the American People.

    Well! Thats a decisive response. Kinda managed to cover both bets, didnt you? The GOP will oppose it (only because they hate OBama and NOT based on the candidate). Unless...they DONT oppose it.

    BTW...I know the nomination hasnt actually been made yet...but prior to an article offered 24 hours ago, what do you KNOW about the candidate (beyond what you have been spoon fed to date), and do you think it is a good choice?

    Are you referring to the fact that 'qualification' has nothing to do with administrative nominees? Or was there another point?

    Big fan of Holders were you and the expansion of government powers over US citizens?

    You're "getting tired?" Dude you've disliked the president before he even got into office.

    Because just like SCOTUS appointments, that's what's important
    So it's important to you they are not black as heaven forbid there's no way a black person can be qualified.
