John Boehner takes the stage

Rallying his minions to do such important business as repealing the health care bill because who with a preexisting condition doesn't want their insurance eliminated?
And what elderly soul doesn't want to play Texas holdem with their Social Security when the Boner diverts their monthly check to Wall Steet.
But the Kabuki will continue with impeachment hearings that will amount to nothing more than show. They'll definitely need to reduce the deficit by lowering taxes yet again and thereby add to the deficit.
Not to forget food safety, the environment, education and worker safety because after all it's so easy to underfund those programs as they've been for the last ten years.

And who wouldn't want to make a career out of saying no and undoing (or at least trying) what the opposition just passed into law. After all it's what you do when the assignment came due and you were too busy playing the back 9 in Ohio and getting drunk to come up with a real plan. It's much easier than saying the dog ate my homework. The real question becomes can they keep this performance up for two whole years and keep the masses amused and confused?

In answer to your last question, don't bet against it.

This period coming up is when I hope to see Obama grow a set. Damn I hate the leadership of the Right and their overblown sense of self importance.

Good sir from Maine, why would Obama grow a set when it's in his best interests as a corporate lackey to not do so?

I'm not counting on Obama growing a set. But I don't see how the Republicans will be able to keep the masses "amused and confused" for 2 more years. That's easy to do when you're the party out of power.

Now that the GOP is actually in the driver's seat, they're gonna have to actually do something, or at least make it look like they're "doing" something.
