If Obama gets an AWB passed, it will be the last thing he gets passed while he's president.

They said that about the ACA as well.
To be fair, the President's party lost control of the House and their margin of majority in the Senate shrunk in the 2010 midterm election. Also, while many people try to paint the 2012 election as a landslide victory for the President, one must remember both that Mitt Romney was fairly weak on some hot-button issues (he signed both Romney Care and a state AWB in MA) and even still the President only managed to take 51.02% of the popular vote. So, while the President was able to survive the fallout of the ACA, he and his party certainly didn't come out unscathed.
