Response to Laura PourMeADrink (Original post)

27. It's largely about 2016.

Let's say they take the Senate. Suddenly, the House and Senate both are passing crappy RW legislation. There's only two things that can happen - either A) the President signs it, and life gets worse for most Americans. or B) he vetoes it.

Ok, the occasional veto doesn't hurt anything... but... If the President is seen simply vetoing EVERYTHING that comes out of Congress, the message low info voters take away is 'Democrats WANT gridlock TOO!' And we take another massive hit in 2016, and hell, maybe even lose the WH too, and suddenly we're right back in George Bush territory, with Congress and the WH in sync, to give massive tax cuts to the rich and finish driving the rest of the country into poverty.
