Time to stock up my fellow Americans. WE KNOW THAT ITS NOT REALLY A FREUDIAN SLIP WHEN OBAMA TOLD HIS SUPPORTERS TO PUNISH YOUR [US] ENEMY! Just a reminder folks. Just take a look at the US governments response to unions and strikes in the 19th Century. Not to mention their response to the Bonus Army in the early 20th. It has been done. Repeatedly. To say the least, this is very disturbing news and if you ignore it, you would be a fool. Podesta: Obama Can Use Armed Forces to Push Progressive Agenda | The Blaze The liberal Center for American Progress doesnt believe significant GOP gains in the House and Senate should stop the President from implementing more of his polices. The group released a report Tuesday suggesting ways Obama can bypass Congress to accomplish a progressive agenda, and it cites the presidents power as commander-in-chief to make its point. I think most of the conversation since the election has been about how President Obama adjusts to the new situation on Capitol Hill, Center for American Progress head and former Bill Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta told the Daily Caller. While thats an important conversation, it simply ignores the presidents ability to use all levels of his power and authority to move the country forward. How does one move the country forward? In the centers report, Podesta explains that Obama can use executive orders, rulemaking, and even the armed forces to accomplish important change and that such means should not be underestimated.
