Response to Cha (Reply #70)

74. Boehner will likewise be bowed. He frontloaded Keystone fast track into every CR since 2009.

In 2010, Charles Koch directly threatened Obama if it was not allowed to go through. Their revenge was the Tea Party, the 2011 CR fight, followed by all the others. Our Leo withstood them, waiting for the public to get wise to the danger of it. PBO spoke in meetings for a Constitutional Amendment to repeal Citizens United as he cannot repeal it. That requires action in the states, though, and the voters let him down by not showing up to polls to defeat the GOP and get it passed.

Our last win was the 18 YO vote and last loss was the ERA which came close, but failed. It would have done so much but there seem to be even worse forces attacking the ERA and a repeal of CU than then.

Obama will find a way, back door if he has to use one, to get it done. He's just about gotten all the liberal social agenda done with no help whatsoever from the other branches of government, making the older ways seemingly irrelevant.

He's got his eyes on the prize, Cha. It's a Civil War. Interesting Obama came into office from the same state as Lincoln...
