    The congressional gridlock that he complains about can be traced back to his action. It's just that he blames Republicans, and the majority of the ill informed believe him.




    The Republicans have found it impossible to vote on almost anything except to repeal the ACA.

    Pretty much everyone from the New York Times to the Washington Post to Factcheck.org has all come to the same conclusion - the President explicitly said that to do what he did would be illegal, and then he went out and did it anyway.

    That is incorrect. There are dozens of bills that have been sitting on Harry Reid's desk - many of them bipartisan - that have passed the House. The guy responsible for nothing happening in Congress is the current (and soon to be ex) majority leader.

    By and large, they're not. The President just took any chance of actual compromise and blasted it into a million tiny pieces. Trust that he would even bother to enforce any provision of any compromise or agreement that he didn't happen to personally like is now pretty close to zero, and without trust, you can't make deals.

    Obama just set the tone for the next two years. Get ready for some bitter times.

    Really? Is that what you think?

    Do you believe that almost 400 bills from the House that are sitting on Harry's desk all deal with the repeal of Obamacare?

    I don't know what those big words like consterpation mean. But if you say so, that must be all our President did.

    Reminds me of another Democratic President who had an issue with the meaning of the word, "is".

    I don't have to try again. I already asked the question and you trying to be cute doesn't get you out of answering.

    Lets say that's true. So what? There is no clause in the Constitution that says the president may take over the role of legislator if the legislators dont pass any laws. I get that you support what the president did, but it is still illegal. Don't take my word for that though. Ask the former Constitutional law professor named Obama that said over and over that he had no legal authority to take the action he did.
