But...somehow...everything that is wrong with America is always blamed on Obama.

I am not even a democrat but I so tired of everyone bitching about Obama.

The fact is...
Congress can do ANYTHING they want WITHOUT the President's Approval.
All they need is 2/3 of the vote. Less than 70%. If you get less than 70% in a class you fail.

What is congress' excuse? They can pass ANY bill they want overriding the President's veto. If THEY are so smart and THEY know how to fix the country, then do it!
Well said glockman .

I wish most of America knew this as well

The pres does not create or write bills, congress does.
The pres either vetos or signs the bill into law.

The pres also DOES NOT have the power to change laws, it has to go back thru congress. BUT, somehow, some way, Obama has CHANGED the PPACA law passed by congress and signed by him, around 7 times already.
How is this abuse of power not called out? Am I missing something here?

When did the pres gain power to ammend a law without the approval of congress?

What's it going to take then? Throwing money, opportunity, development at them hasn't done it. Why should my hard work support people who REFUSE to engage in the world around?

Broken liberal logic will slowly bleed us all out.

I had the same question during the first 2 years of Barry's first term.

But Barry valiantly riding into Pakistan alone on a white steed and slaying the most evil of all evil doers with one swoop of his ivory gripped sword should count for something, right?

Oh and Chrysler/GM. Great move.

Si se puede!

Please bear with me while I continue to search for the volumes of well considered and detailed critiques by my more conservative forum brothers leveled against Bush's signing statements (basically interpreting laws any way he pleased) and that whole "unitary executive" theory he operated under -- you know, the one that basically puts the POTUS above the law because, well, POTUS.

I must be getting my search terms wrong or something because I haven't found this veritable library of reasoned dissent yet, but soon.

I guess you don't know the "don't start nothing, won't be nothing" arrangement.

That's your free one.

If one of your parents is an American citizen, so is their child regardless of where they were born.

That is the current thinking but Constitution says you must be a "natural born Citizen" but it does not define what that is. I agree with your interpretation but I don't think it has really been tested.

Mitt's dad George Romney, was born in Mexico but he ran for President. He got shellacked in the primaries and no one ever challenged it.

Kinda ironic that of Obama, McCain and Cruz, Obama is the only one born here and yet IMO the one least dedicated to the ideas that founded this country.
