    You are the one who said Obama needs to save face, and now you are saying it's meaningless. The mind of you Obama haters are hard to figure out.

    If you approve the party of "NO". You are with the 14%. That's fine. However most of us 61% think the party of NO can't even agree among themselves, let alone with those across the aisle.

    And you would be right:

    http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/...legislation-to-limit-deportations-under-trump

    "Democratic and Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are working on legislation that would limit deportations if President-elect Donald Trump repeals President Obama’s executive orders on illegal immigration.

    Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), both members of the panel, are crafting a bill to shield children living in the country illegally from being deported if they grew up in the United States and have stayed out of trouble.

    The bill is likely to have the support of another Republican on the committee, Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.). He was a member of the so-called Gang of Eight that put together the comprehensive immigration reform bill that passed the Senate in 2013.

    Trump has vowed to repeal Obama’s executive orders that halted deportations for people who came to the country illegally at a young age, as well as deportations of the parents of citizens and lawful permanent residents. "

    But Grumpy says to give Trump a chance. I wonder how many times his ex-wives were told the same thing. :rolleyes:

    The next 4 years will be interesting. It seems that there could be several factions quarreling. Trumpers, tea partiers, old school GOP and Democrats. I think Trump will win out because he has shown to be vindictive and will eventually scare most of the repubs into becoming his toadies.

    Isn't the right wing complaint that the rich pay too many taxes?

    Yes he has to try and save face (but cant). Why ? Because his entire life has produced nothing of value.
    It's telling that you see success as whether one is liked or not as opposed to having accomplished something of value.

    That's not the opinion of most Americans. You are trying to save face because your meaningless opinion has produced nothing of value.

    Ahhh yes, but he is the "Dog" of the house. He need not produce anything of value. That is the right wing way.

    Oh wait, she did win the POPULAR vote. Of course, that only means more people preferred her then Trump.

    That has nothing to do with why BO has a high popularity rating. More deflections and distractions from the alt-right.

    Has quite a lot to do with why his legacy will he one of failure. He killed his party selling his soul to fat cats and flipping off the middle and working class. But you go ahead and cling to your meaningless popularity index.

    I too think he has done some stupid things. However, he has also kept up employment, the stock market, the GDP, etc. Not a legacy of failure to me and the rest of the 57%. Congress has the legacy of failure with a 14% approval rating.
