Seeking veto-proof majority for GOP

Obamacare is giving the right the chance to take a majority in the Senate while maintaining a majority in the House. But a majority is not enough when a progressive Democrat resides in the White House, ready to veto any Republican legislation.

Seeking just a majority is falling short of what the objective should be for those on the right: a veto-proof majority. Then it would hardly matter that President Barack Obama has more years in the White House.

A veto-proof majority is difficult to achieve, however, and would require the support of a couple of conservative Democratic senators — but I believe it’s possible.

To get it, those on the right need to stop the infighting with those not quite so on the right. Such divisiveness only gives victories to progressive Democrats. But when extremists on the right are eating their young, they are, in reality, anarchists in conservative clothing and the greatest of enemies to their professed agendas.
