    What part of “The Constitution is the law of the land” do you not understand. All the Tea Party wants is to go back to following the law. Get away from a Pres that makes up the law as he goes along.

    Mr. Taxman, where’s is say shutting down the government is the Law of the Land? I believe that’s actually usurping the Law of the Land.

    It is ALL about a “need to know”. A concept that has served the various governments and military for eons.
    One can not be held responsible if one did not know.. Most upper management.. politicians.. reporters all use this strategy.. and now everyone is pretending to be outraged.. Hypocrisy at it’s best

    Wrong again. The constitution (the law of the land) gives the House of Representative the authority to determine government funding. If they choose not to fund something, then it doesn’t get done.

    “If they choose not to fund something, then it doesn’t get done.”

    By your logic, No Child Left Behind (for just one example) won’t get done. I was given to believe that it was an “unfunded mandate”: that is, it’s the law, it should be funded, but it’s not. However, it’s the law, and states are required to conform, funded or not.

    If it were true that the House of Representatives could make laws magically vanish just by deciding which laws to fund and which not to, this country would be a wildly different place.

    If we adopt that policy, I suppose the only things funded would be oil companies, Wall Street, Blackwater, Massie Mining, agribusiness, and the Pentagon. Everything else would be de-funded, and the laws underpinning them would just go moot.

    I hope you don’t really believe that would be a better idea.

    The problem is he doesn’t seem to know about anything. Even the positives. He’s looking more and more like a symbolic figurehead not the wunderkind leader the left sold him as. And please stop the “yeah but” comparisons with past presidents, let him stand on his own.

    Reagan didn’t micro-manage Iran-Contra, after all, in fact he didn’t know anything about it, including the orders he signed.

    Yes, but as we found out later, there were extenuating circumstances with respect to his memory.
