    the excuse that they don't have veto proof majority isn't flying here. If the repugs are voting with the democrats on this one, they can be brought around on the larger issues as well and is simply a matter of leadership and will that is lacking. Or are they willing to send the same bill back over and over again if they don't have 2/3rds?

    The contrast here is blinding.

    But then again, maybe they're just planning on capitulating on this if the president digs his heels in.

      it's innocuous enough that Republicans voted for it.  Like that hate crimes act passed by something like 420-2.  That doesn't mean you can ever hope to bring around the Republicans on larger issues, just because they voted with you on a certain thing.  This is the first I've heard of the amendment brought forth by Reps. Miller and Sanchez, so the right-wing obviously was not making a big deal out of this.  Neither was the White House, as far as I've heard.
