The American electorate who have become extremely pissed off with Obama for not doing much have voted to give Republicans control of both the House of Reps and the Senate to ensure there’s no chance of him extending Obamacare to tackle climate change.

However all is not lost for the Democrats. Obama can still veto anything proposed by the Republican Congress like transforming Obamacare into a weight loss programme.

Another Democratic plus is that the President won’t look indecisive anymore because he won’t have to make any decisions apart from saying ‘no’ to everything proposed by the Republicans.

The situation is also seen as a major plus for Hillary’s presidential prospects. She can look incredibly decisive by criticising both the President and the Congress for not doing anything.

There are disagreements amongst distinguished international commentators about whether the US’s inability to do anything internationally will be a problem or a benefit.

On the one hand there will be less uncertainty for people crossing red lines established by Obama but on the other they had nothing to worry about anyway.

It will clearly reduce the impact of Wikileaks and Edward Snowden because there will be nothing worth leaking.

If the impasse between the President and Congress results in the US becoming totally inactive in the Middle East there is the risk of dangerous global warming developments when the Arab Spring turns into Summer.

Democrats are also very confident that if Obama becomes a lame duck or stuffed turkey president it will substantially reduce the rate of human scandals racked up by his administration.

There is of course the question of what government inaction could do for the economy. Economists believe it would be the best possible thing that could happen to it because it could open up the way for a new era of prosperity led by the inheritors of the Lehmann Bros and Bernie Madoff operational models.

Democratic Party leaders remain confident however that there’s no chance of Obama becoming a lame duck president for the next two years because they have placed the country’s leading vets on standby.

Absolute confirmation that the country has lapsed into total stagnation could come in two years’ time in the form of a presidential race between a Bush and a Clinton.
