    I honestly can't figure out why Democrats are still sold on Obama..

    Sure.. they have no choice in the matter but 4 more years of a failed Presidency just to win an election... seems kinda pathetic..

    Not sure where I said I was a Democrat......

    But the newb is right this is just a weak troll thread from a weak troll.

    (BTW don't forgot it was a GOP controlled gov't who got this whole disaster party started)

    Have a good night, Lumpy.

    Hack/troll away, whatever.

    It’s all partisan, all the time.

    And of course there’s no ‘up-side’ to a republican presidency, the last administration is ample evidence of that. For some Obama’s a known quantity, for most 2012 will be an election of the lesser of two evils.

    I belong to a tiny minority who is opposed to the ‘imperial presidency’ and believes in the original intent of the Framers that the Executive doesn’t do much of anything; the country was supposed to be run by Congress. The president is to sign legislation (sans ‘statements’), appoint judges and justices, and make speeches. He may veto a bill on occasion and report on the state of the Union ‘from time to time,’ otherwise his role is mostly ceremonial and indeed ‘administrative.’

    The propensity of Western states to gravitate toward some kind of strong ruler is remarkable; were it not for the Constitution we’d be a dictatorship long ago.
