    I can't think of the court ever citing the 10th amendment outside of the government trying to get states to run certain federal programs

    Well, it's a nice theory, anyway.

    The other question is can he be impeached for having been born in Kenya? How would that one work, Constitutionally? Hmmm...
    I doubt any president has ever read the full text of every single bill he signed, Obama is hardly unique.

    And if you get any undeniable proof that Obama was born in Kenya, I'll personally help you push that case. Good luck.

    WHAT? Dude, you clearly don't understand the Constitution at all:

    Only Congress can declare war. The sad thing is, that our Congress has continuously, post WWII signed weak bills passing the declaration of war over the President. It's shameful. I thought someone who claims to know the Constitution would at least know that.

    Please, when people have to pay more, do you think semantics will help them swallow the pill more easily?
    I think the truth matters. He did not hidethat he plan on letting them expire.

    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.

    No, nothing of the kind. Most understand distinctions.

    Nothing new in that. Seriously, as high as our debt is, it's not realistic to expect lower taxes. If our politicians were honest, they tell us we have to cut spending AND raise taxes.

    Cool, cut spending first, then we will talk about raising taxes.
