    Aw, yes, pick out the part you want to believe. I hope he does veto legislation like the Keystone Pipeline which the majority in this country support. I hope he vetoes all pro growth legislation and let's see just how far left this country is. I believe Gruber was absolutely correct in describing the Democrat electorate today.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA THROWS A WET BLANKET on hopes that he'll play ball with the new GOP-controlled Congress, telling Senate Democrats he'll 'play offense' against Republicans — including using new executive actions and vetoes to kill legislation he doesn't like, such as the Keystone pipeline bill and tougher Iran sanctions.

    Every President in recent memory has expanded the power of the office over their predecessor, and when a Republican takes office in 2017 he'll do the same. And you'll be leading the excuse train.
    Oh....That's true....So, I guess then I should expect to be "liking" your future posts when a Repub gets in office in '16? Or is this just a way for you to say STFU and take it?

House Republicans made that clear and so did Senate Democrats. The fact that you think no intention of working with each other was a one way street tells me far more about the hype you believe over what you think I do. Face the facts, Obama is doing now what Republicans have been doing for 4 years. Saying in advance there is no interest in working together. Does not make either side right, something else in my post that must have re-parted your hair as it flew over your head.
    Yes, I heard that and you didn't answer the question, was Harry Reid an obstructionist by putting House Passed bills into his desk? Why weren't those house bills debated and the either passed or rejected? The fact is Harry Reid protected Obama and prevented the country from seeing just how leftwing he was. They are going to see that now.

    Cooperation means debate, not obstruction and preventing debate. Executive action isn't showing cooperation but rather a King like action. This country wasn't built on Obamanomics and the American people are finally waking up to that reality.

    What makes you think those House bills had something in them that Democrats wanted?

    Didn't you say nearly the same thing before the last election about Demo's keeping the Senate, and gaining the house? yeah, I'd say your prediction is about as useful as snot.

    There were more than a few reports (and no I am not going to go on a snipe hunt all afternoon to get them for you) that the house passed exactly what Obama wanted, an Reid shelved the bill so it would never see the light of day....It was all a dance to feed the narrative of repubs doing nothing....

    Why don't you put them up for debate and find out?

    You'll have to ask him, I am not Reid supporter. But I am pointing out Republicans do not get to take the 112th Congress with the express purpose of not working with Obama, then turning around in the 114th and cry Obama is an obstructionist.

    no, I am asking those like you who blame the Republicans for doing nothing. You buy what you are told and I am asking you about legislation being held up by Reid. How can Republicans be called a do nothing group when they passed legislation that is sitting in Reid's desk? Stop making Gruber look brilliant
