The amount of obstruction our president has faced during his tenure is unprecedented. Clinton did just fine with a Republican-controlled legislature. Hell, even Bush had an easier time in his last two years than President Obama has in the last four years he’s been president. Luckily he had a Democratic House and Senate for the first two years. But that disappeared as obstruction and the Party of “NO” came to town.
And now, with a Republican Senate on the way to join the Republican House, President Obama will not be backing down. He will not be the lame duck everyone expects him to be. I just hope that the Senate Democrats will show the Republicans what a powerful minority looks like. Truth be told, I want to see Sen. Elizabeth Warren lead a filibuster that trumps Ted Cruz’s 24-hour one.
