    I think it is true of many a man who takes that chair. I can only think that former Vice Presidents have a clue, and then only a slight one...

    Google results for "politician not lying" = 0



    And, BTW, Sarge, Obama's only signed 130-something EO's.

    but not to the same purpose as bush... which was in fact to basically say that the laws in question were not enforceable in the manner intended by congress.

    signing statements as a general rule have been used by many presidents. traditionally saying something in support of the bill being signed into law.

    and THAT is why people objected to bush.

    p.s. bush used a LOT more executive orders.

    i wouldn't compare him to carter, though i know that's the meme. carter didn't have to deal with a group of people who said "i hope he fails" before he even did anything.

    that said, i think he should have been hillary's VP BEFORE he was president. but now he's had 3 plus years. he knows the job.

    and remember that then the alternative was palin... and the rise of the rabid right...

    and now the alternative is returning to the same things that caused our current problems in the first place.

    disagree. McCain's mother is 98 years old. and it will be funny when Obama attacks Iran and his followers get right behind him.
