  •  Another excursion into fantasy land. (7+ / 0-)
    Obama is not willing to stand up the Republicans and force them to back down. He's shirking his duty as chief executive.
    Precisely how does Obama, or any president, override the House of Representatives? Sternly worded letters? You have the grand rhetoric of the totally irresponsible.

    The House is designed to be a necessary part of government. Saying you're going to do this or do that without telling us how you plan to get a majority in the House to agree with it is like saying to a guy who's being choked, "I don't see why you don't do anything. After all, your lungs and your mouth are still in working order!"

    "They smash your face in, and say you were always ugly." (Solzhenitsyn)
