    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.

    “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.

    And yet, a CEO would have been able to share his vision with the subordinates. They would understand the means of how that vision would be accomplished. Should the subordinates stray from the charted course, the CEO should be able to recognize and redirect that wrong course. In order to do that, the CEO MUST have a basic understanding of what each direct report is doing in there respective department and that knowledge would be in real time.

    So you are saying that Obama should get a pass for not knowing what the head of the justice department is doing and should not require briefings on ongoing projects? You are saying that the head of the IRS should not be reporting to him? Or that his signature legislation, his claim to fame, his LEGACY the ACA is not on his radar? The head of HHS should not have kept him apprised of the progress and readiness of the rollout of a simple web site?

    I remember that some time ago when he was “caught” skipping out on his morning briefings it was said that he was “too smart” to have to attend them all. He knew everything already and the briefings were not really necessary….. right.

    When will you pull you head out of the sand and recognize the con man he is?

    “How about an English translation ?”

    He would have to know something to translate his own blatherings.
