Just as he did to John McCain in 2008 and to Mitt Romney in 2012, President Obama defeated a lame Republican political team.

  1. What’s lacking in Washington period, is political will to do anything. It’s all about advantages for political parties. I disagreed with using ObamaCare as a wedge issue from the start.
