For every action, there is a reaction. Obama's overreaching tendencies will undermine him, marxistcare is about to be in full force, and the realities of how bad a program it is will start to be felt by everyone, negating much of the aura of Obama. The new normal appears to be higher prices for everything necessary to survive, basics such as food, housing, energy and fuel, while a stagnant economy and inflation continue to hammer wages and savings.
Gun control and immigration reform are the distractions that Obama hopes will keep his base from seeing the true picture, it's been his MO from the beginning, keep the target moving. Instead of being the President that represents all Americans, his divide and conquer strategy shows his weakness.
