    China and Russia too!! Obviously hatred for Obama eclipses all critical thought on this.

    Greetings, Montecresto.

    I don't understand your post. Are you saying that we support terrorism?

    none of this happens in a vaccuum.
    in this particular case, Obama should not have declared he was going to shut congress out back in October... that was a stupid and wrong move.
    ultimately, it led to where we are today.( though him doing so surely didn't happen in a vacuum either)

    anyways, on such an important issue, nobody should be shutting anyone out...this is one of those times when the government needs to get it **** straight and act as a single unit, according to it's constitutional duties.... .it's not the time for bull**** unilateralism.. it's not the time to flex executive muscles..and it's not the time to write meaningless letters meant to smack the Prez upside his head.
    bunch of ****ing children, the lot of them... and yeah, Obama is included in that...he's the head baby.



    sometimes "partisan" isn't enough to describe how far people take their political allegiances.<shrug>

    GOP congresmen decided to shut Obama out on day one.

    wow.. i'm so surprised you deciced make a post where your aim is criticize the US again.. it's so rare for you to do so. /sarcasm

    He missed by a mile.....because Obama isn't negotiating for a treaty and doesn't need congressional advice or consent to broker an 'agreement'.

    Yes I know. I should do like the rest and only criticize one half of America. Sorry. Btw, "America" has meaning far beyond just the leadership of one administration to the next, responsible for advancing foreign policy which is what I criticize daily.

    ...and supposedly he doesn't need Congress to lift sanctions that were levied by legislation.. and he doesn't need congress to enact immigration policy not found in law... etc etc etc.

    according to Obama supporters, Congress is seemingly unnecessary on the whole.... all hail the King!
