    Sometimes what needs to be done is hard.
    Yes, the president should be more overtly a dictator. Tell the other two branches of government, and his constituents to go to hell, he alone knows best. Hopefully, he doesn't read your post and get any ideas.

    Yep, that's about it.

    NIMBY said there should be no boots on the ground because the American people don't want them there.

    I said sometimes the President has to do things even if the American people don't want it.

    That is what being a President is all about.

    You mean like when we had a broken Health Care system when the President made a difficult choice against public opinion.
    You people are for difficult decisions until yer against them, yer MO for the last six years.

    And you will be the first to blame your President when we start incurring death abroad.
    As MMC did with his beheading cartoons, after Obama bombed as per GOP insistence on bombing .

    And I disagreed with you. That's what being a dictator is all about. Here in America we would prefer the president govern the people's will and not his own. As he (at least overtly) did in Syria when 70% of Americans said that we didn't want another military operation there.

    You think people vote on every decision the President makes?

    You forget that people will not support the president if he does not respond to the people's concerns.
