  •  He has effectively impeached himself. (0+ / 0-)

    The encouragement he gave to Republicans has allowed them to gain a position where nothing Obama wants can pass.  It's two lame-duck years with a veto pen (hopefully!!!!) to cancel out the worst abuses.

    If I could trade a Democratic-led House and Senate for President Biden.. I'd do it.  But that's not on the table any more.

    "To pass these defendants a poisoned chalice is to put it to our own lips as well." Justice Robert Jackson, Chief Prosecutor, Nuremberg.

    •  The thing is, "what he wants" is, for him, (0+ / 0-)

      an abstraction. His political failure has no real-world impact on HIM or his family. His crocodile tears over "programs that mean a lot to me" are worthless.He'll be rich and famous no matter what. He won't bear any of the consequences of his own handing of power back to the right wing--cut Pell Grants, cut SS, cuts to everything. Unless, of course, they impeach or imprison him. They did it to the Democratic governor of Alabama, didn't they?

      I'm not rooting for it. But it might wake him up to have to start spending hundreds of thousands on legal bills as a consequence of his own stupid "bipartisanship." And like I say, poetical justice.

      If I knew it was comin', I could pull a jet plane.--Reggie Jackson
