The only way I see this going anywhere at all is if Obama loses his spine. Republicans have no way to trump a presidential veto other than to get a 2/3 majority in both houses, considering they lack that much firepower and most of the people in congress are extremists right now, I don't see that happening unless the bill in question restricts our rights or increases their pay.

It is a disappointment which is nevertheless unsurprising. I wonder if the people who keep clamoring for Obama's impeachment would be happier with the Biden administration? Because that's what they'd get. I don't think they realize that yet.

So Obama just recently ordered 1000 boxes of veto pens...

The Republicans have a huge responsibility now to show the country they can get stuff done if they want to stand a chance against Queen Hillary Clinton in 2016.


Agreed. The Republicans have found themselves in the perfect spot to spend 2 years undoing some of the damage and then taking all the credit.

We will see if they can pull it off.

On a side note, I would definitely vote Clinton 2016, not because I especially like the Clinton model, and not because I don't hold her extremely accountable for illegal actions she took as head of the State Department, but because the idea of America's first First Gentleman being Bill Clinton is just too exciting and hilarious of a prospect for me to vote any other way.

Mitt Romney was almost funny enough of a person to outweigh how afraid of him I was. But I would have demanded he kept that infamous orange spray tan for the entirety of his term.

I am not a good voter when it comes to the president.

Biden's an idiot but it's only 2 years. How much damage can he do?

If Hilary Clinton becomes president, it would be the first time ever in history that two presidents have had sex with each other. Anyways, isn't the Senate mostly made up of republicans? I feel there's some kind of hidden agenda here against Obama

Does the fact that the US is currently engaged in a multilateral air war with a terrorist organization based in Syria and Iraq, and further that the President of the United States is the commander in chief of the US armed forces factor into your calculations? If you really believe Biden is an idiot then one would imagine that you'd be aghast at the notion of his directing that effort.

C'mon. Eli as VP? No way. She has too much experience to be the backup and tiebreaker for the Senate.

Obama has always WANTED impeachment ...since it has no chance of succeeding, all it does is boost his popularity.

"Doing something" is often worse than doing nothing. Congress was structured to keep stupid laws from being passed in the heat of passion. As much as I opposed Clinton, he at least was able to work with congress; even so it wasn't until the Republicans held congress that he was forced into a position of compromise. Obama and Harry Reed have been the heart of the "do nothing" congress. Enjoy your retirement Mr. Reed.

I want them to replace the ACA with something that works.
I expect them to moderate Obama's liberal agenda.
Get the Keystone Pipeline through.
