    Now I see how Obama has been able to easily accomplish his various stated goals.

    Could be an ash tree, and to carry the analogy further, somewhere under the bark are the human equivalent of emerald ash borers.

    Congress has done it to itself. It passes laws stating its intent and creating the bureaucracy to actually write the laws. The bureaucracy is run by the executive. The executive makes thousands of bureaucratic decisions daily with little oversight from a timid congress or an overwhelmed judiciary. Voila! Despotism.

    Yep, Obama is in the executive branch. How perceptive. I’m sure he’d love to have a strong legislative branch, but the GOP is so dysfunctional that the house can’t even pass a farm bill, a transportation bill, an energy bill, a climate change bill, a jobs bill, or anything other than a bill to avoid cuts to air traffic controllers (because they spend more time at home than at work). Someone has to be a grownup and do his job, or America will be as irrelevant in the world as the House of Representatives has made itself in governing.

    If you shuck the Legislative and the Judicial Branches’ responsibilities onto the Executive Branch, you can criticize Obama to your heart’s content. Inaccurately of course.

    But if your purpose is to bring down the government, instead of governing, or encouraging governance, hey, ’tis about as effective as the usual propaganda .

    Congress means both House AND Senate. Why label the GOP dysfunctional for not passing Democrat bills? I would call that functional. Why must the right always move left and never the left move right?

    Yes and isn’t it great we have so many people to inform us of how bad Ramirez is. Just ignore that Pulitzer.

    Ramirez again gets it totally correct.
    Obama, the “constitutional professor” knew enough about the PC coward culture in today’s America, so he figured he would be allowed by both the Legislative and Judicial branches to get away with 8 years of a Law-Less regime.
    Scoff-Law politics are at the peak under Obama.
    His selected cabinet directors fit his Alinsky Agenda…the DOJ is now the Department of Injustice in most important cases….selected to further the Obama “change” of the traditional government system.
    I pray for God to help Americans survive and do another Patriot Tea Party election in 2014 and 2016 to Save America.

    The Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves.

    Obama has not had the much influence on the judicial branch since being elected. Most of his nominees to benches have been languishing in committee with many of them moving on rather than waiting fruitlessly. The trunk of that tree has been overdeveloped by years of efforts of the parties to make the presidency much stronger than it should be. The legislative branch is made puny by the very inactions and partisan conflicts of the legislators themselves.
    The sad thing is, despite the apparent health of the tree, it has become hollow on the inside. It is a tree whose leaves are so acid, nothing grows in the ground beneath it. It bears no fruit, and has no flowers. It’s roots spread wide and does damage to any nearby structure.
    Mr. Ramirez may feel this is how Mr. Obama views the branches of gov’t, but it is OUR gov’t, and it is up to us to care for this tree with respect and civility. Only then will it grow with health and hope.

    I think the Judicial is a bit larger. Certainly the appellate courts.

    Things were much different under Bush, Clinton, Bush . . . .
