Mr. Sowell, it seems you are under the illusion that we have a 2 party system of government here in America. The 2 party system of government died many years ago, even the great Ronald Reagen was snookered by the party, over taxes and spending cuts. Which Mr. Reagen is still waiting for the spending cuts. Obama has blatantly lied to the world and American people from day one,with no one stopping him. WHY? What he has had is the full backing of the propaganda media machine and some very powerful people satisfying their needs and wants for money and control. Even an elementary school child knows by our Constitution, Obama is unable to hold the office of president of The US of America. Where is Lady Justice?
