Let's look for a silver lining:
Obama gets his agenda boxed by some pro-gun Democrats, RINOs as well as conservatives, neo-cons, paleo-cons, libertarians and/or Tea Partiers as a coalition. Instead of the wedge he wanted to increase between the Republicans, he brings in more of them in the 2014 Congressional elections. Just like events following Obamacare. Then what follows is the HC exchanges do not get funded for his HC to work.
Ha! Ha! Our system of checks and balances will have worked.
