WASHINGTON – In a swift and improbable political turnaround, the lame-duck Congress has revived a dead-duck President, pols and pundits believe.

“There was nothing lame about this Congress,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) quipped about the flurry of bills passed in the final days of the postelection session.

President Obama, left limping after the Republicans scored a huge victory in the November midterm elections, was the major beneficiary.

Democrats managed to get their ducks in a row and help resuscitate Obama with some luck – and some well-played chess just weeks after what Obama bemoaned as a “shellacking” in the elections.

“Pundits wanted to write him off, but President Obama went right back to work and we delivered,” said Gillibrand, who gained national attention for championing the 9/11 health care bill and an extension of unemployment benefits.

Political scientists have taken notice.

“It’s official. Like it or not, this lame-duck session is the most productive of the 15 held since [World War] II,” noted University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato.

A new CNN poll showed a majority of Americans have reversed course and say Obama is again taking the country on the right track.

Even Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Brooklyn, Queens), a leading liberal White House antagonist, said the tally sheet shows Obama compiled an enviable legislative trophy case.

“Nobody is talking about a ‘shellacking’ anymore. . . . Things don’t feel so bleak,” Weiner told the Daily News. “When they look at the scorecard, most of Obama’s [political] left will be celebrating a very merry Christmas.”
