1-It isnt a question of creation...its what they CHOOSE to DO that indicts them and
2-Our constitution and laws are not a universal construct. For example there is a reason why we have the UCMJ...because even Americans serving in foreign lands are still bound by our rules and not those of the foreign governments in whch they may be residing.
Second - Obama while being Presidet does have limitations - except when both houses of Congress are led by Obama's own political party. That means Obama had a priceless opportunity to do what he claimed he was going to do. Many Presidents do not have that opportunity especially while pointing out how bad the prior President's policies were.
Third - Democrats are trying to use the "blame Bush" strategy -- ressurect it -- and ride it through the mid-term elections. I agree with other posters here that Bush mucked things up - no doubt, especially in spending. That does NOT exhonerate Obama's first 18 months or excuse his LACK of all things "hope & change" from occurring.
Obama owns the issues he inherited, 100%. Blame Bush is no longer valid. The litany of failures is rising and the opportunity for additional failure continues to increase. He was and is over his head... it's as simple as that.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.
