    Uh, you actually DO have to get “permission” to sue the executive, among other government entitites.

    The RepubliCon meme is to change the subject away from failing schools, ‘trickle’ economics, crumbling infrastructure, social support, accurate statistics, good science and logical thinking. Change the subject to what? One has only to follow Holbert for a few days to discover.

    Cue the trumpets: scapegoating is no way forward. Think about it. Vote vote vote for better governance in November, local state and federal. Government is necessary at every level and it ain’t gonna get better if we let the Rush Fox noise ‘team’ make the selections.

    Like the Teleprompter, rightwingers never noticed when previous presidents used executive orders. What makes this one different from all the rest? Hmmmmmm?
    .
    I guess issuing any executive orders at all — even far, far fewer than previous presidents — is evidence of being uppity. Well, we can’t have that.

    The Repubs are so focussed upon attaining total control of the government that their desperation is plainly evident for all, except a fool, to see.

    “The RepubliCon meme is to change the subject away from failing schools,…”

    And your post is not an attempt to change the subject of the cartoon?

    But then again, all the previous Presidents were white.

    Clearly there is a great deal of outright hatred aimed at our President. It is very reminiscent of behavior at the height of the civil rights movement 50 years ago. We are little better than the sectarian factions who are destroying their country in Iraq.

    “I’d say your Dems own the problem of “failing schools.” Lock, stock, barrel. Hook, line, sinker.”
    Who gave us “NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND”?
    Who took education away from educators and gave it to legislatures?

    This is no more the conservative way than it is the liberal way. In 2008, the House sued Bush, so this is hardly a tactic of just one side of that illegitimate coin: http://articles.latimes.com/2008/aug/01/nation/na-privilege1

    I’m sorry, but I was also alive 50 years ago, and there is no comparison. This idea that President Obama somehow is experiencing more hate than other presidents is misguided. For example, in the election of 1800, the fighting was way dirtier than anything, today. One newspaper stated that should Jefferson be elected, he would create a nation where, “murder, robbery, rape, adultery and incest will openly be taught and practiced.” In return, a supporter of Jefferson declared that Adams was a “repulsive pedant” and “gross hypocrite” who “behaved neither like a man nor like a woman but instead possessed a hideous hermaphroditical character.” http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/08/20/the-dirtiest-presidential-campaign-ever-not-even-close/2/

    So, we are now seeing more hate than any time since the election of 800? Could be. But the South in the early 1960’s might be a match.

    Though No Child Left Behind was strongly supported by George Bush, it was written by Ted Kennedy. I’d say both parties are on the hook for that one.

    Be careful, Barack. Remember what happened to John Adams and his Alien & Sedition Act.
