    Iraq resolution was bi-partisan and Clintons mandates via his 1995 long list of executive orders created the Subprime mortgage crisis.

    The will of the people means nothing to Obama. He didn't get the message election night and thinks some people are so stupid they will support his liberal policies no matter how unpopular they are even when he lies to get his way, e.g. Obamacare.

    He's right; some in this thread have proven that.

    IF you think so, it must be pretty close to correct.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You are correct. I knew it was a neck injury while diving into water, so I incorrectly concluded that he was quad, but no, he's para.

    True. Now just need to let these people actually 'do', instead of intervening and interfering without their consent.

    Now, you still think that Dr. Krauthammer is like a little annoying dog yapping all the time. Do please continue.

    There's much more to it than just that, but there's far closer than you'd think. Fully dissected ad nauseum here:

    Thanks for clearing that up. I remember having seen him on television eons ago and I remember him as being a para. I wasn't sure.

    If I may go off topic for a second: Because of the rapid pace of technological development many more people today and perhaps most will have a disability before they die. Certainly damn near every American will be directly affected by someone in their family having a disability. Used to be people just died. Not so anymore. Assistive technology and durable medical equipment are enabling people with disabilities to have much more "normal" lives than even 25 years ago. More and more of everyday life is accessible to people with disabilities. Attitudes of able bodied people, however, haven't yet caught up to speed with technology. (Militant disabled people often refer to able bodied people as TABS - "temporarily able bodied" - because most able bodied people will be disabled before they die.)

    Now, you still think that Dr. Krauthammer is like a little annoying dog yapping all the time. Do please continue.
    Yeah, I do.

    I don't remember any, but that doesn't mean they didn't exist. I hate the idea of impeachment. Let the president do his thing, the people will either approve of it, disapprove of it or be indifferent. I actually think Obama would welcome it. If he looked back at Clinton's impeachment, he would see at the beginning Bill was at 57% approval, not an ideal time to begin impeachment proceedings as the people were not with the Republicans. When it was over and done, Clinton had a 65% approval rating. I don't have party favorability ratings from back then, but I bet the Republicans approval ratings drop quite a bit.

    But Obama is not Clinton and his approval ratings are 17 points below Bill's. But still, one has to wonder if the Republicans ever learn anything from history. If the people think he over reached this authority they will let him know. Right now there is a lot of people dissatisfied with him, but dissatisfaction does not warrant impeachment.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Congress is welcome to attempt to rein in presidential power via legislation or constitutional amendment, but it would have to apply to the office itself, not just this president that they don't like.
    The constitutional amendment is already there it is called the separation of powers. in fact it is designed by the writers of the constitution to stop exactly what Obama is doing.
    he doesn't have the power to go beyond his authority regardless of what congress is doing. that is the whole point of the separation of powers.

    The president has no authority to change immigration law. at most he can clear up any ambiguity that exists but since there is little of that he cannot stop deportations, nor can he order what he is wanting to order without congressional approval.
