    Obama on presidency:

    The U.S. constitution--was designed to keep the Federal Government from taking over every aspect of citizens lives in this country--meaning yes it would be very hard for this socialist to navigate around it. One would think Obama being a "constitutional" scholar would know that. This comment suggests that Obama does not respect the U.S. Constitution something he swore an oath as President to defend.

    Thank God for the Founders of this nation. I will always be grateful that Obama can't force Congress or anyone else to do the things he wants quickly.

    Now I just pray that we can restore the Republic to it's original design to preserve our liberty and be a city on the hill.

    that's not how i interpret what he said at all. he was saying that he was naive in thinking that he could come in and everyone would agree with him (and the way the government is setup, you can't just force your vision on everyone else).

    i'm glad it's this way. can you imagine if a democratic or republican president could just come in and implement all the crazy stuff they wanna do. we would be 100 trillion in debt.

    The checks and balances were made to keep dictators out of the loop.

    Obama sees himself as a ruler...not a leader. This can be detected in the words he chooses to express himself when speaking without a teleprompter.

    The man is suffering from delusions of sainthood. What's worse...he a fuckin' Marxist!

    No he wasn't. He was complaining that our system does not allow dictators to run roughshod over 'we, the people'.

    'We, The People' means ALL of us - not just you fucking hacks that want a Nanny State.
