Politics: Perhaps Democrats know something the rest of us don't about Barack Obama's political fortunes. What else explains the increasing numbers who are openly defying the president on two key election issues?Obamacare sound familiar?
Former Alabama Rep. Artur Davis went furthest. "I think the Affordable Care Act is the single least popular piece of major domestic legislation in the last 70 years," he said. "It was not popular when it passed; it's less popular now."70 years? That left a mark.
Keystone is key to most of us, Obama not so much.
Obama may have thought he'd cleverly handled the issue by putting it off until next year, and that no one would think to defy his veto threats.
But when Republicans called his bluff with a bill to force a start on construction, 69 Democrats rushed to join them, giving the House bill a veto-proof majority. The Senate bill is just a vote or two away from overcoming a Democratic filibuster.Veto-proof in the House? A few votes short in The Senate? Obama is about to get sent to the corner.
My gut says there is not a chance in hell Obama can be re-elected in November without massive voter fraud or some sort of shenanigan to stay in power. Martial law/race war/riots or something along those lines. All of which cannot be ruled out, especially with the Justice Dept. run with the creep in charge now.
