    In my book, this is certainly Obama's biggest stain on the Presidency and the American way of life.

    Congress must be willing to cripple a rogue POTUS such as this by shutting down government.

    Absolutely. If Congress had had the balls to do this with Bush we might have avoided the Iraq fiasco altogether.

    Illogical and revisionist, Libtard.

    'Three days after President Bush announced the "opening stages" of war, a Gallup Poll recorded a 24-point surge in the percentage of Americans saying they are satisfied with the way things are going in the country, and a 13-point rise in public approval for the way Bush is handling his job.'

    Iraq War Triggers Major Rally Effect


    Not to mention the fact that Bush got Congress to approve the invasion. LOL

    Yeah, I figured as much. this is why it's impossible to take most Republicans seriously when they talk about the Constitution and limited government. As soon as they get in power they're just as excited to expand executive power as the Democrats. Fake bullshit, as usual.


    Try to follow along. That's the part I'm complaining about. If the Dems had had the guts to block Bush they way the Republicans have at least tried to block Obama, we'd all be better off for it.
