Good evening Polgara.
Obama only uses his phone in the Ovala Office for staged photo ops. Have you noticed there's always a tea cup without a saucer sitting on the desk ? Or maybe it's pantywaist coffee cup ? I drink my coffee from a coffee mug.
Obama coming right out saying he wont negotiate with the Republicans is unpresidential. That's suppose to be his job.
You have to wonder if instead of attending his high school government class Obama was truant smoking pot and drinking beer > Because he doesn't seem to know how the federal government is structured and that their are three branches of government.
Congress writes the laws and the President is suppose to enforce those laws.
The President submits a budget and Congress picks through the budget and decides what parts of the President's budget that Congress will appropriate funds for. I've been told it's something to do with check and balances.
