Obama, empowered GOP set for face-to-face on heels of midterm sea change

November 6, 2014

President Obama and a newly empowered Republican leadership team will meet face-to-face Friday for the first time since Democrats took an electoral drubbing, offering the first real clues as to whether the next two years will bring gridlock and partisan warfare — or some breakthroughs.

Both Obama and Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the presumptive Senate majority leader next year, signaled Wednesday afternoon that voters upended the balance of power in Washington in part because they’re tired of Washington’s “dysfunction.” McConnell and fellow Republicans claimed the vote also was a major rejection of Obama’s policies — but both sides claimed they want to try and work together in the remaining years of Obama’s term.

Voters have heard this pledge before, only to see the conciliatory spirit doused by the political pressure of the next elections.

    I’d impeach the president in January, give him a real problem, in his back yard. He is in NO position to say no to anything at this stage of the game.
