    How about this. If Obama doesn't declare himself dictator, what will you change about the way you analyze problems like this so you don't miss the mark so badly the next time?

    All of which is valid.

    I was wondering how this Administration was going to explain that appointment away? The Legislation was very clear on the point that the agency could not start until an appointee has been confirmed. A recess appointment is not confirmation.

    Perhaps I won't have to trip over idiots who are administering to their own wang rather than engage in valid debate.

    unfortunately when you are reading through posts you reply to one when you read it, not after you have read everyone elses posts...keeps it less confusing...for me at least.

    Except for that sticky little wicket, there was NO recess.

    I understand. Just a little frustrating at times to have to explain positions several times over. You and I are on the same page with this. Several good articles have been linked in the thread as well, all by Conservatives ... what a shock, eh ..... as there is no long term benefit to going nuclear as Obama did. He's an arrogant, inept, narcistic putz. But he has his lemming supporters, and they are a greater threat to the Republic than Obama, as Obama will be out of office, sooner or later. But the lemmings will still be lemmings.

    Unfortunately there are lemmings on both sides. Unfortunately they vote. Until the lemmings become extinct, we will be stuck to wallow in the muck together.

    How about answer the question. If you're going to make such an incredible statement as that you believe the president of the united states is going to declare himself dictator. The kind of statement that can lead to blood being spilled. How about if you make a statement like that, you take some ownership of what you are doing. If it turns out you are wrong, you make corrections rather than just going on and doing it over again next time. That seems like the very least you could do, no?

    The problem with determining lemmings is that we consider them to be extreme. Now it all depends on who is determining 0 on the scale of +10/-10.
