    going to wake up and realize that they have neither the stamina, nor the smarts to defeat President Obama?
    Not to mention the fact that he has what is Just on his side.
    While all they get is the short-lived empty calorie high they get  from stroking their bibles.

      ...have a big advantage over Obama - time.

      Obviously Obama won't have any say about governance in about 29 months - and we don't know who will after that.

      If mid-terms don't turn out well, he will probably be forced to overturn many of his executive orders/policies in order to keep from being viewed as obstructionist by vetoing every bill that comes his way because they have an "undo" of something in them. Any bill that gets to his desk that is needed to keep important government programs running he will pretty much have to sign -- else his rhetoric about the House being obstructionist when they didn't go along with the other two components of the legislative process will be thrown back in his face.

      It all depends on two key elections in the next 27 months.
