    Of course he is. He has said from the start that it is not Congress's job to approve it and we will not set a precedent. The Reps know it and don't really care if XL ever goes through. They know what Obama wants and they don 't have the power to give it. He wants a comprehensive infrastructure bill.

    Oh he cares.....as now he knows. Even some democrats don't care about what he has to say anymore. Which leads him to thinking about future vetoes and democrats that will turn against him.

    Its a win win for the people of this nation. As no matter what BO does. He won't be in the Right with this issue.

    The Dems who voted for it were in purple States. Besides 4000 30 week jobs are not going to make a bit of difference to the unions.

    I think he actually enjoys having everyone against him, he revels in being the political outsider.

    If gas prices remain low they won't be. But if, as expected, prices rise back to $3+/gallon it will become a huge election year issue.

    As expected it passes the Senate. Now its gonna get a veto and go back. Its gonna easily overcome the 2/3 requirement in the House the big question remains will it overcome the 2/3 in the Senate?[/FONT][/COLOR]
    Maybe, the last votes are hard liners, my senators will vote no even though I would prefer a yes.

    Making substantial concessions on another issue may swing some no votes to yes

    No I don't act as so.....more than likely I have seen hundreds of vetos passed before you even saw your first one.
    Are you serious? It shows how little you know about politics if you don't understand the "test vote". The test vote was a procedural issue that Republicans thought they would sidestep with enough votes, but they didn't. Democrats always knew that the vote would pass...You need to pay attention a little more.

    He wanted to be a compromiser but that didn't work out so what choice dose he have? He's making the best of what he got.

    Good luck if you believe for a second that the anti-union Republican party is going to gain union votes over this issue. It would be more likely that Pro-life right-wingers would vote for Democrats because they get upset with the Republicans...in other words, sorry....but it ain't gonna happen.
