Where have I heard that one before?
Sincerest form of flattery.
There might be a touch of hyperbole/trolling going on in my OP. But I look at the campaign, his agenda, future trends, and past history of second terms and I do see a lame duck.
Not saying he still can't cause trouble. He can still get us into trouble internationally, still put up federal appointees, still veto stuff, still screw up administratively, but no signficant legislation is going to come from him without Republicans being on board. I can only see that happening on immigration.
His campaign platform was pretty much:
1. Raise taxes on the rich
Well, that's done. He spent his mandate. And in 2014, the repubs will pick up a few more seats.
