    The Repubs haven't worked with the Dems for the last 6 years and why would you expect a change now?

    Indeed, many are pessimistic that Obama will make the change. His decision to go it alone on immigration isn't very heartening.

    I don't think Obama will grant Amnesty.... Congress can overturn, and not fund. and they have the manpower to do that.

    Mitch McConnell just taught the Democrats not only how not to cooperate without repercussions but also how to win at the ballot box by making it look like your opponent is the one not cooperating. This has probably ensured not only the next 2 years but the whole next generation will be beyond bipartisan compromise.

    Obama granted deferred status to the 'Dream Act' kids by executive order........without a peep out of the Repubs. He can do it again quite easily.

    True, but times have changed, and with such a sweeping victory look for the republicans to be much more aggressive. dream act was a landmine, kids, etc.... blanket amnesty, is a pretty safe bet to come out against.

    Nor have the dems, who were in the power position, worked with repubs.

    I don't think he'll go that far. He has to know at this point the electorate is not with him anymore and any attempts to drag the country further to the left will undermine Democrats 2016. I'm guessing the next 2 years will be "cool" but not "cold" with a few token gestures of bipartisanship and not too many waves as the Democrats regroup for the next election.

    I just hope the GOP doesn't go off the deep end in pursuit of some perceived but non-existent mandate. Right now they're back in control of the Senate because people are unhappy with the Democrats and that is the ONLY reason.

    SCOTUS needs to tell BO "no".
    congress can then deal with it further legislatively in the new year.

    They have the mandate they need now, just need to act.

    How did he amend Obamacare? Not implementing parts of the law is allowed by EO. Granting amnesty is not. I think its the only reason he hasnt already.

    Hers the thing. I think he knew...maybe even planned on democrats getting shellacked this year. Perfect for him. Now, he can blame every obstacle, block, and failing, on the GOP in the house and senate. Even the promised amnesty will be blamed on the GOP, both when he attempts it and when it is deemed unconstitutional. The president cannot grant citizenship.
