I agree...but I also believe, that those who think obama is acting alone, all by himself (the same applies for past presidents), with not power behind him...also counts, for gullibility.

The hypocrisy of Obama is only matched by the gullibility of the people who still support him[/i]

Obama has got to be kidding

By Ed Lasky

Quote:
He actually said this: the system “is so broken” that “folks don’t know what the rules are."

He was referring to the children’s crusade on our borders that has caused chaos as tens of thousands of people try to illegally enter America - a crisis he has created by lax, or no-enforcement, of our immigration laws and by issuing executive orders that basically re-created the Dream Act - a law that could not pass Congress.

But the statement was just stunning in its disingenuousness and yet another example of the most hypocritical president in American history.




Does anyone know what the rules of Obamacare are on any given day? He has delayed numerous mandates of the law as it was passed; issued waivers for favored groups; decided not to enforce various aspects of ObamaCare. His namesake law is what he decides it to be that particular day (often depending on the polls and the midterms). There have been at least 41 changes to ObamaCare so far and more to come no doubt. The actual law was passed by using a controversial maneuver never used before in that way (reconciliation)..

But why stop there?

Barack Obama openly boasts he intends to circumvent Congress by use of executive orders, signing statements, recess appointments and the like. These are extraordinary methods that have been abused by this president. And that is why the Supreme Court has increasingly come to reject his tactics and his cavalier approach toward laws (i.e., rules established by our system).

One could go on and on about the systems he has broken on his way to “fundamentally transform America." Our systems of alliances sare damaged. Can friends trust us anymore? Those folks don’t know what the rules are. Allies like Poland and the Czech Republic, England, the Ukraine, Israel - the list of friends who don’t know what the rules are is ever going.

Americans have no idea what Obama’s proxies in the EPA, Department of Justice, and the IRS are going to do to them. The IRS was not supposed to release private tax records - that was a rule - but it was broken by Obama allies. It's the law that the IRS was never supposed to engage in partisan and predatory hunting of conservatives to restrict their First Amendment rights. The filibuster was an age-old custom that was meant to protect minority political parties in the Senate and moderate overreach. But Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid, abolished that rule. The Senate system is clearly broken, too.

So it is certainly true that we can relate to Obama’s complaint that “folks don’t know what the rules are." But we Americans are the ones who should complain that he and his liberal allies are the ones breaking the systems and creating anarchy.

The hypocrisy of Obama is only matched by the gullibility of the people who still support him

What I fail to understand is how powerful people seem to think Presidents are. Especially when things happen in other countries, like saying it's Obama's fault if gas prices rise, or the Middle East falls apart, or immigrants try to come to America.

You could just as well blame Nixon for starting the War on Drugs that helps create the incredibly violent situations in the countries these kids are coming from, or poor governance in those countries, or etc. The article is superficial, jumps around at different talking points, and is honestly worthless. You post about voters needing to be more informed, but is this the type of information you are talking about?

I think...I THINK...you and I agree on this...especially when I noted "past presidents".

Though I do not think the article is worthless, it brings forth interesting points...which all lead to...presidents do not act alone, all by themselves, nor do they come up with legislation, all by themselves.

Puppets attached to strings. But the fact of the matter is...people keep falling for the gag.

You would get more responses if your title related directly to the content of the thread.

"From american thinker" could be about anything on earth. The topic of the thread is not clear, hence people's unwillingness to waste time clicking on your thread.

I suggest you take courses in basic english composition.

May I suggest, an article that doesn't jump all over the place.

My personal opinions: Only legal immigrants should be allow in the US. Their paperwork must be in order, just like mine had to be when I went to Korea and Canada. I do not support the dems on this issue.

Obamacare/Romneycare was desperately needed in the US. High healthcare costs of non-seniors was a huge factor in the mortgage crisis. High healthcare costs are also one of the reasons why Americans have relatively low median net worth, even with high per capita incomes in the industrialized world. American families of four spend on average 22,000 a year on healthcare.

I strongly support the efforts of the dems on the healthcare issue.

Fair enough.

However...I would have given more support for the AHCA if they had NOT taken out the public option.

You made a promising start, but fell apart with the healthcare reasoning. Nearly every promise made about that crap law has been broken; i.e. if you like you plan/doctor, you can keep it, your premiums will decrease $2,500 per year. What about this idiot changing the law, without congress approving nonetheless, dozens of times just to benefite his party?

The truth is is the one way to control the populace is to control healthcare. All this nutjob wants to do is have power. God help this country survive this power grabbing socialist.
