    For clarity, then, am I correct to understand that you do agree that it's hard to impossible to tell when Obama is lying and when he's not?


    He may stretch things occasionally, as all politicians do, but I don't believe that his aim in life is to lie to the American people

    Just look at who the new Chairs are on the Judiciary, House Overcite, Budget, Weighs and Means......BO has serious problems going forward with anything.


    Which is probably why he did his EO now! He should have done it before the midterm elections!

Please tell me how to use bi partisan and Obamacare in a sentence that makes just a little bit of sense. Certainly Republicans didn't support Obama's bad idea, which by the way were legion. Rush Limbaugh said it best when he said that he hoped Obama would fail.
    Obama's failure is success for America,
    although unfortunately he has been too successful in much of his agenda.


    From day one of Obama's 1st term Limbaugh and the party he leads, the G-nO-P, have hoped that America would fail to recover from the depression that Bush mis-led America into so that they could say Obama had failed.

    But America didn't fail, and Obama hasn't failed. Whether you like it or not he'll be leading the USA until another Democrat takes his place.

    Deal with it.

    I'm not sure why you even responded to my post. Not only was it NOT directed at you and I said nothing about what Obama's "aim in life" is...but you didn't even answer the question that I asked of pbrauer.

    All in all, I'd have to say you made a useless post.

    I must point out here that the Bush recession had its roots and firm foundation in clinton/Greenspan's feeding the irrational exuberance so well. We are still paying that bill to be fair to Obama.

    I suspect you are right. A law would have been better. But there is no concensus. But maybe Congress will be prodded into action.

    Irrational exuberance is totally irrational.

    I predict that any action that congress takes won't turn out well for the GOP.

    What could the GOP do that would make it look better?
