Obama desperately does not want to lose the Senate.
Reid and others have told him that another assault weapons ban will give control to the GOP in 2014.
If the GOP controls both houses, they can pass budgets, cuts and repeals that will force Obama into veto mode.
OBAMA will be on defense if this happens, not House Republicans.
It will also set the stage for a GOP victory in 2016.
Your post #30 broke the code. Well done.
Reid and the Senate Dems must have had a come to Jesus meeting with Obama.
It is obvious that Obama had something more planned, as today was a real dud.
If we win in 2014, Obama is a lame duck for the second half of his second term.
There are 20 Dems up for reelection in the Senate in 2014 and they know their constituents.
Keep up the pressure on all our state and Federal reps. a battle was won today, but the war is still in progress.
