If we had a president any ballz (and actually had the welfare of the American people at heart) he would send our military down to the southern border and stop all traffic coming through, including the drugs and the soon to be Obola infected central Americans. Heck, maybe take over about 30 miles of Mexico and build the Obola stations there and fight and destroy the Mexican cartels as if we're at war with them.
So, Crist knew the rules well beforehand and decided to break them anyway. How Democrat party of him. And if he can't handle one hour without a fan when the others could it makes you wonder about his health. Not fit for office on many levels, as he's proven.
I believe our delusional and lying president doesn't get daily briefings in person because it would expose him as not having a clue about foreign policy matters or that he doesn't even care to handle them. If he were face to face with the briefers, then he would have to ask questions, naturally, to go deeper into the subject. But he wouldn't know what questions to ask to get to the core and the briefers would then know just how incompetent he really is.
That was my belief with the Patriot Act. I/we could trust Bush and the GOP to protect us. Not so with the Dems. Like the old saying, give them an inch and they'll take a mile.
But it stymies Reid and O not producing a budget, which is a good thing...among others. GOP legislation blocked by O and Reid will put in the spotlight (which isn't now, due to the press protecting them) and the press can't ignore reporting on it. Of course, the press will slant it to the Dem narrative but enough people will see the obstruction of growth the Dems have laid on us for six years running.
It's all a part of checks and balances which, before Obama and his abuse of Executive Orders, worked really well. It's to prevent any one branch of government from getting too much power. It's designed to work slowly so that a concensus is built over time and rash things- like bailouts- aren't the order of the day.
I was thinking the same thing.
Yes. O can always veto them and even if the 60 vote mandate stays in effect, and the GOP doesn't reach it, it will clearly define O and the Dems attitude toward the economy, making a 2016 GOP president a distinct possibility.
I just hope the GOP has the nutz to play the same way the Dems did.
O can veto his own nominations? Not sure I follow you on that one....And Reid did open the can of worms by going nuclear to get some flaming libs on the DC Court of Appeals, so procedural methods are fair game for the writing. Of course, the MSM will be up in arms if the GOP does it but nary a word when the Dems did it. In fact, on Yahoo News it was off the screen within a half a day.
