48. That is preposterous.

While they might be able to use it to GOTV and drive up outrage on the right, they won't be able to use it to "beat President Obama and Congressional Democrats." It has popular support and it's basically uncontroversial to most sane people. It's not a "wedge issue."

The question is, do you really think Romney is that big of a threat that the potential (mind you potential) GOTV Obama's EO would garner could put him over? I don't see it. Romney is a dud and I think the EO could even have a demoralizing effect if not be canceled out by the popular movement of such a move.

It's a calculated political move but it's not a fucking necessity like you make it out to be.
