you know i kinda half way expected him to come out and say "shame on you voters that placed the U.S. in Republicans hands."
instead he implied that the 2/3 that didn't vote are at fault.

He smacked his lips too many times.

He is a worried and troubled soul.

He needs to search his inner demons.

Even they are now saying that if the President moves forward with his immigration EO, the chance of cooperation is nil over the next two years.



Cooperation was nil to begin with.

He is blaming his own victims.

It makes me feel energized

Did anyone get the feeling that he seemed 'energized' out of that press conference?

I saw Maddow and Matthews duke it out over Rand Paul last night. They were visibly pissed with one another.

I predict a run to the center by MSNBC.

Funny how things work.

For reals????

Have a drink with Mitch or let Boehner beat him at golf to fix problems. What is he rambling on about for God's sake.

Too funny.

Even they (MSNBC) are unanimously busting Obama on his "I'm not mopey" comment. They equated it to Nixon's "I'm not a crook" statement.

Wow.

It's like watching FOX.

I'm going to double check my bank account. I may find I'm a billionaire in this alternate universe.

Y'know...

This is exactly the result we, as citizens should want... White House in one parties hands, the house/senate in another.

Gridlock, baby, gridlock.

For anything to happen, compromise must occur. Which, in the end, means that utter and complete stupidity is harder to get passed...

As for executive order nonsense? Congress holds the purse strings. Things have to be paid for. The Supreme's also have more than a little to say in matters of legality/Constitutionality...

Then, of course, there's us. You remember us... The citizenry? But, as apathetic as the majority seem to be, maybe we don't really matter...

The graphic showing the 249-179 House majority didn't last long on the screen. Heard a lot about the Senate yesterday and some about the Governors, but I didn't realize how big the gains in the House were.


Maybe Congress will actually pass a budget the next two years. They need to just pass law after law through House and Senate and let Obama veto them all. No more not letting bills come to vote so Obama doesn't have to veto them, and the Dems in the Senate didn't have to publicly support or reject them.

I suspect, however, that the Republicans will completely drop the ball, attempt endlessly to reach compromise with a President unwilling to compromise, accomplish virtually nothing on their own other than finger pointing, self-destruct on lightning rod issues instead of governing and then throw up their hands in 2016 and say, "Well, we tried". And then they'll be surprised when the public doesn't particularly care why they didn't accomplish anything, only that they didn't.

Sufficiently cynical?

Law after law? Just to force the Pres. to veto? Just to make him look bad?

What does that accomplish, exactly?

It's really not too late for these idiots, other wise known as the Democrats, and Republicans; to start to work together for the benefit of the nation as whole...

Too much to ask? I don't think so. ...and it's time and past for us to demand it of them, and, more importantly, expect it. ...and if we don't get it? Remove the useless fools. Repeat as necessary.

Instead?

ATS is so full of whimpering posts of "oh woe is us, the evil Republicans are in power", right along with the gloating "Obama has been beaten."

Until we do something about it, nothing is going to change, regardless of party affiliation of the fundament in the Oval Office.

Quite frankly, it's beyond old.
