The Picayune Item
I had long feared that Obama would be reelected to a 2nd term due to his policies that inordinately benefitted and increased the size of the dependency class -— who would then overwhelmingly vote for him. My worst fears were confirmed and that was the main reason for his win; however, pandering to single-value groups on issues that should not have been germane to the campaign, also helped immensely. One further point: Democrats can say and do anything they wish without fear of repercussions or it being detrimental to their cause.
Since we have to deal with reality, I am issuing marching orders to the Republican-controlled House: Hunker down and resist all legislation put forth by the president and Senate that compromises our core principles. This has been a lame duck president since the 2010 election, and he is in no better bargaining positition now. Let's make him a 6-year lame duck president. For the nay-sayers, name one agenda item that this administration has enacted in the last 2 years.
