I waited a couple of days before blogging to let my "political high" die down a bit.
Now that the "high" is down, time to ask some serious questions and gaze intently into my crystal ball.
Here's a few predictions:
1: From now to Jan 2nd, Obama is going to go batshit crazy. He has two months to ramrod whatever he can of his socialist/pro-Islamic agenda down our throats before a new Congress and Senate takes over,
2: Obama will have to replace Attorney General Holder before the current rubber-stamp Senate leaves and the GOP-controlled Senate takes over in January. If he doesn't, the new AG will be questioned on what would he do to investigate the scandals of the past 6 years.
3: Expect a FLOOD of executive orders. Obama will try executive ordering things while he still has a rubber-stamp Senate. It will be his last chance to do much of anything without opposition.
Once the new GOP-controlled House and Senate convenes, the ball is in their court.
A few more predictions:
4: Don't expect miracles. It takes 67 votes to override a veto or impeach Obama. While the GOP/Tea Party victories were awesome, we simply don't have enough votes. Short of His Royal Islamic Highness molesting his kids on the White House lawn in front of the media, he's pretty much home-free.
5: Expect to see SOME legislative movement in the Senate. Bills Harry Reid didn't put on the floor will get at least a hearing. GOOD bills will get a vote and then the ball is in Obama's court. If he vetoes it, he better have a damned good reason WHY. "Just because" isn't good enough.
6: I've heard Harry Reid might not have enough votes to be the MINORITY leader. His "non-action" on the aforementioned bills cost many Democrat Senators their elections because they didn't have a chance to vote on issues and show their stuff.
7: I would not be surprised if Reid changes the procedural rules to stop a fillibuster. At one time, it took 60 votes to end a filibuster. Harry Reid changed it to "majority vote only" so the Democrats could end filibusters and "get on with business." Expect Reid to change it back before the GOP can take over again.
8: Expect NO gun control bills to even get sent to committee for the next two years. The GOP knows not to screw with the 2nd Amendment. I do expect Chairman MAObama to try pushing for it and resorting to executive orders to get it. (maybe this will slow down demand for ammunition and reloading components!)
9: Expect the Democrats to start plotting/planning, etc on how to regain what they threw away. Expect them to do everything they can to obstruct and block progress.
10: Think Obama is "toxic" now? Give him two years of not signing bills passed by the House and Senate. His fundraising abilities will dwindle as will his popularity. Showing up in battleground states cost him the Senate. When the Presidential campaign season kicks off, his stumping for a candidate will be the kiss of death.
The word Obama should remember is MANDATE.
Obama says "his Mandate" is bigger (2/3 of voters did not vote).
If it was so big, why is he suddenly talking about "compromise"?
The word is MANDATE.
The people have given the GOP a MANDATE to fix broken government.
