    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 I see the Obama haters are still in the process of pretending they've just found out about signing statements. Let the faux outrage continue.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    It is no wonder we think Obama is dangerous, because HE IS!

    We have a process in this country to do these things Obama wants to do, and it certainly is not unilaterally. We don't have a King, we don't have a dictator, what we have in Obama may actually be worse.
    Just wondering if you would like to re-open this thread to criticize Trump for the executive actions he is taking now, seeing as he is doing an end-run around congress in order to build a pet project that congress has never voted on.

    oh those tables just keep turning!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Secure Fence Act... signed long time ago... all Trump did was say "Do it now." Since ya know, Congress already approved it.

    Ooops
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You mean the one XO that canceled a pile of the previous XOs? Sanctuary cities were already in violation. The part of the OX that addresses sanctuary cities just clarifies what the DOJ already stated more than six months ago, while Obama was in office.

    Sanctuary city policy gets funding yanked by federal government - Washington Times
    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Thursday, July 7, 2016

    The Justice Department said Thursday it has warned sanctuary cities to quit shielding illegal immigrants from deportation agents or else lose federal grant money, putting some muscle behind Republicans’ push to punish cities and counties that have refused to cooperate.

    ???. from the article you linked:

    To build the wall, the president is relying in part on a 2006 law that authorized several hundred miles of fencing along the 2,000-mile frontier. That bill led to the construction of about 700 miles of various kinds of fencing designed to block both vehicles and pedestrians.

    So, a law authorized several hundred miles of fencing, which were completed. He's now reviving it to build thousands of miles that the law did not call for.
