I mean did people really think that Obama was going to be able to pass the Health Care Bill that easily, when Hillary tried and FAILED miserably. He's gotten a lot farther than she did.
Perhaps I am not being clear on what I'm trying to say. I agree that he is one guy, but he projects himself as being the one who does make the legislation. He makes demands of what bills he wants on his desk to sign and when. Like the HC bill. He gave a deadline to Congress to have it ready for him before Christmas. He threatened the Supreme Court not to over-turn McCain-Feingold and failed at getting his way on that as well. There's a difference between motiviating and pushing. And Obama not only pushes, but throws his weight around to the point where he things he can control everything from the Oval Office. Look at his approach towards financial institutions, businesses, manufacturers, and the private sector as a whole. Control, control, control. That is not how things should be done. They should be done how you just described, but it's not. He IS making these decisions himself, and he's got the support of Pelosi and Reid kissing his feet. And in regards to the HC bill, Obama and the Dems got a lot further than Hillary ever did. It had a good chance of passing.
If anyone doesn't know about the pressure Obama put on the SC, here's a link to the entire article which is interesting in of itself
That sounds like a threat. And every American should be worried when the president of the United States starts threatening the Supreme Court.
Regardless of whether anyone here supports or is against the verdict, my point is I don't like the way he approaches things, and I don't see much respect given to other branches of government or even to businesses for that matter.
Jack, you're complaining about the President doing his job. Every President tries to get his parties agenda met, that's part of his job. He's supposed to be throwing his weight around. And please try to find somewhere other than Fox to get your news and or opinion. I'm snowed in here and while I have electricity I'm going to try and find you some conservative sites that may not lie to you as much as Fox does. I can assure you that the Founding Fathers would probably not be pleased with the decision by the SC. Lets worry about the real people's free speech and stop giving an entity (corporations) the same rights that we have. We are the people of "For the people and by The People" not a corporation.
I'm trying to talk to you and I hope that you will try and listen without getting mad at me. I don't agree with you but that's ok, you rarely agree with me.
