    Re: Obama On Executive Actions: ‘I’ve Got A Pen And I’ve Got A Phone’

    It's a cancerous system when one group out right refuses to allow votes for nominees to fill positions just because they don't like the agency. In this case, the GOP, against the NLBR and the consumer protection agency. It's no secret they hate worker and/or consumer protection, because it goes against their moneyed masters. With that said, do the right thing and allow nominations!

    They were not in recess - the Congress has the authority to make it's own rules, to include whether or not to declare itself in recess. Otherwise every President since Washington could have simply waited until the weekend.

    Oh, that's easy. The attempt to force Medicaid Expansion on the States.

    Is that before or after Michelle Obama rounds up all the "whiteys" and has them killed because she hates them all?

    It does look like Obama has exhausted his "reach across the aisle and negotiate" options. I'd hardly call it the "first" thing he tries considering this is what... his fifth year of presidency?

    I haven't seen anyone defend his actions outside of saying that executive orders, signing statements, and administrative actions are normal. Obama is not a great president but he's hardly the demonic entity your rhetoric suggests.

    Thank you. It only took 3 days and 240+ posts. I'm not singling you out. Just pointing out the disparity in rhetoric vs action of Obama and how the people screaming loudest about this couldn't actually think up any examples. Rage before reason.

    How long did the GOP block nominations? That would have suddenly changed after the recess?

    That's true. Though I would like attempt explained, and supported. If I ask you to speed, that may be an attempt, but not sure I'd be arrested for doing anything illegal or against the law. So, if this is a Constitutional issue,attempting, where would that be listed?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Oh too be sure, if I were a defender I'd get nit-picky and point out that Sebelius was named in the lawsuit not Obama and that it wasn't an executive action that got struck down, it was a section of a law. But I'm not being overly technical or a wordsmith.

    This is just another example of people who hate Obama pre-emptively complaining like they did before he even took office.

    Bush is no where near as insane and radical as Obama - Obama is a Stalin cloaked in a US flag.

    I was no fan of Bush myself - especially after the Patriot Act, however I would rather have Bush as president presently than Obama. If I had to choose between the two.


    Is that before or after Michelle Obama rounds up all the "whiteys" and has them killed because she hates them all?
    Hell, if that bitch, her husband, Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NBPP and the other radical non-white groups plus the self loathing progressives could actually do it - THEY WOULD DO IT....


    It does look like Obama has exhausted his "reach across the aisle and negotiate" options. I'd hardly call it the "first" thing he tries considering this is what... his fifth year of presidency?
    Obama has done NO NEGOTIATING - Obama has pretty much said: "this is what I want - give it to me or else I will blame you" - so there is no diplomacy there - EVER!

    I haven't seen anyone defend his actions outside of saying that executive orders, signing statements, and administrative actions are normal. Obama is not a great president but he's hardly the demonic entity your rhetoric suggests.
    Obama doesn't have to sign many executive orders and I'll tell you why. Because Obama has appointed tyrants to do his dirty work for him - including SCOTUS justices and district judges....

    The guy can do whatever the **** he wants outside of amending the constitution - something he doesn't even need to do considering he can sign an executive order...

    Obama has set up a progressive socialist monopoly.....

    The worst of all of it is that he is completely ignoring the Constitution because he knows Holder wont hold him accountable for anything....

    That's why Obama is on TV right now admitting to domestic spying - meanwhile you're bashing Bush....
