The following is a brief look, some insight if you will, on where the Obama focus will now lie and who Obama thinks he can count on once the new Senate and House are seated.
Immigration changes; most likely some form of amnesty via executive order, and then trying to *make nice* with Boehner, Graham and McConnell.
Some in GOP fear schism over Obama, immigration
WASHINGTON (AP) — With President Barack Obama vowing to press ahead on immigration, prominent Hispanic Republicans are worried about the reaction of staunch conservatives. They fear it will harm the party’s ability to win over Latinos in the next presidential election and beyond. SOURCE
Boehner warns Obama on immigration
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a blunt post-election warning, House Speaker John Boehner cautioned President Barack Obama on Thursday against taking sweeping action on immigration without congressional approval, saying “when you play with matches you take the risk of burning yourself.” SOURCE
Sen. Lindsey Graham has already talked to President Obama
COLUMBIA, SC - Just over 12 hours after the Republican Party captured control of the Senate from the Democrats, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham says he’s already been in touch with President Barack Obama on how to move forward. SOURCE
What kind of bourbon should Obama and McConnell drink?
During today’s news conference at the White House, President Obama said that he would “enjoy having some Kentucky bourbon with Mitch McConnell,” the Republican senator from Kentucky widely expected to be the new Senate majority leader. But, Obama added, he doesn’t know what McConnell’s preferred drink is. SOURCE
I hate to be SO negative so soon after the election but I see NOTHING different about to happen in the GOP’s relationship with *Boy Blunder*, yes, that would be Barack Hussein Obama.
With Boehner leading the House and McConnell leading the Senate it will be the same old thing all over again; ‘We want this and we’ll make it look like a fight so all of the guys that voted for us will think we’re battling you Mr. President!’
Here’s the news for The Three Amigos; We, The People are watching you and yours more closely than ever and we’re not going to let you sit back, drink whiskey, smoke cigars, tell lies and play games with the Democrats, those days have got to come to a close NOW!
It is painfully obvious that while some states strive to improve their lot in life others keep on doing the same thing over and over, hoping for a different result each time.
That would be the folks that keep electing Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner. I believe that is the definition of insanity, is it not?
To ALL Members of Congress and the Senate I beg you; set this nation RIGHT. Don’t follow the limp-wristed examples of Boehner, Graham and McConnell, no more of this *go along to get along* BS and calling it bipartisanship.
The POWER is in the hands of the GOP, don’t squander this opportunity, Americans are not going to take it any longer, and believe me when I say this; there are those that will watch your every move and report it widely. We will launch the effort to unseat those that fit the definition of RINO.
Some states are beyond redemption but maybe there is a chance for South Carolina, Kentucky and Ohio to wake up and see these above mentioned legislators for what they are and to remove them as soon as possible.
