    I can’t figure out how we don’t have universal health insurance as Obama can do anything he wants.
    Maybe it’s because this toon attempts to perpetuate a myth.

    Normally, in mid-terms, the party that does NOT hold the White House gains seats in the Congress.


    One exception was ‘98, when the House did the ’i’ word to Clinton, after which the GOP lost seats and a Speaker.


    So, while prior presidents signed many more executive orders, those orders were all Great Ideas that SHOULD have been ordered, while Obama’s executive orders have all been High Crimes and Misdemeanours.and the GOP needs to gets into action and ‘I’ the president ASAP, in time for the ‘I’ to change the elections, currently predicted as a GOP House and Senate.

    Just think what the hysteria would be like if Obama had issued as many executive orders as Bush the Elder, Reagan or Clinton.

    This selective outrage is just so tiresome.

    It’s not the amount of executive orders, it’s their content. A president can issue vast numbers of executive orders without endangering our Constitutional system, provided that those executive orders fall within the scope of the President’s authority. By trying to change legislation by executive fiat the President has rightly exposed himself to criticism for executive overreach.

    “It’s not the amount of executive orders, it’s their content.”

    I’ve heard that line used before. What I haven’t yet herd was how any specific executive order made by Obama was “endangering the constitutional system” any more than executive orders made by any other President of the last 30 years.

    For @Hiram Bingham, from yesterday. You missed the intent of my first comment. I was wondering why Moderate Muslims in the Us haven’t made a major protest over the extremists killing Moderates or everyone else, for that matter.

    This is not a political cartoon. It is a sleazy ad hominem attack. Arial is preaching to the Tea Bagger choir.

    I don’t know how this guy ever got on my list of daily comics, but thanks to him I have learned how to delete a comic.

    Too dangerous. The moment an American Muslim self-identifies, all the good American Christians go after him.

    It is unfortunate that they are not given much attention in the media.

    There are numerous places where such arguments may be found. Here is a piece criticizing (rightly, in my view) the President’s attempts to change the operation of the Affordable Care Act by executive fiat and touching on some of the President’s other abuses of executive power:

    then you should take off your o bama ear muffs and widen you viewing to more than the comic section. whip out a copy of the constitution and actually read it. the president does not have the power to change or write laws, only congress does. he has changed health care over 20 times to avoid a public up rising. he has refused to enforce laws mandated by congress, also not within his powers.

    well how about you go back to Poly Sci class and re-educate yourself. Its apparent you do not understand what your talking about. With Executive Orders.

    http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Executive+Order

    The president can do alot with how are system operates. PLEASE go back to school .. you have not clue what your talking about.

    As for Obama earmuffs,, they are quite soft and nice fitting.. you should try some ..no wait first you have to take your GOP BLINDERS off so you can see.

    IF anyone is hurting the constitution its the GOP and or founding beliefs. YOU ALL want to for Christian beliefs down the throats of Americans by having it dictate our laws, you want to strip Women of their legal rights to handle their own body, you want to see starving Mexican children turned away at our border, you want to let the banking industry run free as our economy falls apart, you want to give tax breaks to big corps that are sending our jobs overseas, you want to pass laws to let them do it, you want to NOT change our gun polices to help protect our own people and would rather see children die then fix the issue,… wow.. the list keeps going.

    As a FYI, Congress (GOP controlled) has the worst approval rating in the history of this country. GOP has spent untold amounts of money trying to block the President,, rather than work with him and deal with our problems.

    GOP today it the biggest two faced, anti-American group ever. YES Anti-American because everything they do is hurting America not helping. THey don’t want to support standard of living, don’t want to help the environment, fight any bill to help our education system, fight bills to help our vets …wow .. list goes on.
