    How stupjd do you have to be to fall for all of the generic platitudes and bumper sticker slogans of his 2008 Camapign ?

    Pretty dumb. Now how stupid do you have to be to vote for him again ? Wow is right..( you said wow, I know you did )

    And there are nearly 40 jobs bills sitting in the Senate from the House waiting for a vote they will never get.

    Do you really have the authority to judge who's stupid and who's not if you didn't even know that ?

    Oh and Democrats are moving here BECAUSE their plague blue states were torn down due to the " genius" of Democrat Policies.

    Don't worry about Texas, now we can create new voter laws that will keep the crooks out
    LOL ... caught yourself just in time, didn't you? "Don't worry about Texas, now we can create new voter laws that will keep the crooks out." I bet you meant to say "them minorities out," didn't you? Come Fenton, you can tell me. I won't tell anyone.

    Jobs bills? LOL ... read this Fenton (it saves me some time) - Republican Jobs Bills Won't Actually Create Jobs, Say Economists

    here is what you are stating and it is correct.

    A presidential veto is the rejection of a bill passed by the majority votes of both the House of Representatives and the Senate. While Congress can vote to override a presidential veto, causing the bill to become law without the president's approval, this is rarely done. More often than not, the threat of presidential veto is sufficient motivation for Congress to modify the bill prior to its final passage. This article provides a brief overview of procedures involved in vetoing a bill and the ways Congress can respond to a presidential veto.

    however the president sets policy and he can under that policy execute the law in a fashion he desires....example:

    our 1924 immigration laws states that every single illegal alien must see an immigration judge, and that judge will determine if the person is deported or stays in the us.

    under obama, he with his policies have by-passed the judge part, and state" that any illegal who has not committed a crime", shall be able to stay in america........and that's what they are doing, .............while waiting for amnesty...the new immigration bill to pass congress.

    a stimulus bill nonetheless, no? same idea ... gov't helping out -- simply wasn't nearly big enough ... still, despite all of the GOP obstructionism, the economy is making its way back ...

    The economy is making its way back due to gridlock and having no new budget passed in the last four (going on five) years where continuing resolutions are the flavor de jour...

    sounds to me your mad at conservatives.

    so i guess, if the court had ruled the other way, which is the way liberals wanted it to be...it would be ok?.......and the court would be just in your eyes?

    Right... reauthorization is essentially new legislation and that's what was deemed unconstitutional. So we can do away with the "they discarded the law because they decided it was no longer relevant" arguments.
