How can a President who has sworn to uphold the constitution pick and choose
which laws he wants to enforce, like DOMA and immigration, without going through
congress? That would be like if he decided to start enforcing a new law that he
made up without going through congress.
You know what else is causing fatigue? The predictable and repetitive Republican
vitriol against everything President Obama does or says. And the more it's
repeated, the less meaning it has, except to the gullible.
As usual, anyone who disagrees with "One old man" gets their ideas and
beliefs from talk radio. They cannot possibly be smart enough to have their own
thoughts. Only he is that smart.
@mick..... problem is, you do get the same old responses to just about
everything, despite what the topic of the opinion piece is. Its the same
extreme one side is good, the other is evil drivel day in - day out. Perhaps
these are unique, well researched opinions based off a broad spectrum of sources
representing a variety of political thought.... but it doesn't feel like
it.Now I am sure it sounds the same in the other direction as well.
Unbending opinions to the left.Other than the headline on this
opinion piece, I think it was actually relatively fair. Of course Obama's
second term is largely going to be and out growth of his first. And for the
most part, Rubio's response was equally predictable, with the added
Republican rebirth on immigration. Did we really expect dramatic change? I
hope not, because this is what both parties ran on...And yes, that
sneaked in line "no matter who you love"....please let it rest. I as
an employer don't want to know anything about who you love, no matte your
life style. That stuff stays at home. Period.
Re: ". . . you forget the "well-regulated" part."Liberals chronically forget that the "well-regulated part" applies
only to militias, NOT to arms. Even then, it's a passing, foundational
comment, NOT a reversal of "shall not be infringed," or a backhanded
conferral of some gnostic, occult governmental right to infringe.Liberal Obama anti-gun proposals rely entirely on disingenuous,
anti-constitutional, anti-American sophistry for their basis. They cannot be
sustained without violence to both letter and spirit of the Second Amendment.
I felt the state of the union was wonderful!! How inspiring to here from Barack
and his fresh approaches to economic resurrection such as raising taxes and
spending more money. Is it really so hard to understand people that all we have
to do is just raise taxes and borrow more money. Problem solved. Can't wait
for the economic boom. I can see the job applicants lining up now as far as the
eye can see.... oops I guess that was the unemployment line..sorry.
