You write, "Everything appears to be in perfect alignment for His re-election in 2016. What could go wrong? Yes, what could possibly go wrong?" well, duh....how about the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution?

I hear you, loud and clear.... that SIX TRILLION DOLLARS of debt could be run up by Congress and the White House without a legal budget is malfeasance and corruption on a scale never witnessed before in this country. Our National Treasury and economic future are being looted right in front of our eyes. BOTH parties are in on out- the Democrats for blindly rubber-stamping a lawless regime's agenda; the GOP for refusing to draw a 'line in the sand' and cry STOP!

Andy, you are preaching to the choir...... you are right. But I would have never believed that we could go an entire presidential term without a declared budget. This is willful disregard for the law, but more importantly, it is neglect of his fiduciary responsibility to the tax payer. Were he a company officer and we investors in the company, his liability would be near limitless……. We would own him and the company. The reason he is going to try this and get away with it is that:
1) No one will challenge him. He is eligible for impeachment right now for refusing – in writing – to enforce laws. It is his oath of office to uphold the constitution and the law. If Obama can enjoy blatant, uncontested, disregard for the law for 7 ½ year

For a President and his party to wilfully disregard the CLEAR law of the land and intent of the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution- which clearly limits any President of the United States to TWO terms, would mean we have a LAWLESS government.
"Fudging" the Constitution, "skirting" the Constitution, or "mis-interpreting" the Constitution is ONE thing; to wilfully flout the clear, un-mistakable and un-ambiguous intent of the Constitution is a whole different story. That would mean NO LAW, ANYTHING GOES..... Anybody with ANY smarts REALLY doesn't want to 'go there'...

This guys has, with compliance of the Senate, broken they law and violated the constitution time after time....no budget, no prosecution of current laws, executive orders, wining counties with more than 100% voter turn out with NO investigation of voter fraud......if he decides he wants to remain president, the news media, which already questions the validity of the constitution, will be complicit in violating the 22nd amendment with GLEE.....and anyone who challenges them/Obama will be degraded and persecuted like Herman Cain or Romney, if not simply removed the way Obama's gay friends in his "church" were removed when they threatened to reveal how Obama likes to party.....

One of the great things about American politics is its capacity for punishing hubris.

For the ancient Greeks, hubris didn't merely describe god-like arrogance. It was a crime, usually defined as taking too much pleasure in the humiliation of your foes. In its modern usage it usually means the pride that comes before the fall.

In the wake of Barack Obama's State of the Union address, both connotations seem at least a little apt. We are well into our fourth month of epidemic thumb-suckery over the question, "Are the Republicans doomed?" The latest New York Times Magazine asks, "Can the Republicans...
