        WILL apply to all future presidents? how do you not understand that? seriously? when policy gets made, it's not valid for only a 4 year or 8 year term? did no one learn civics?

        this is the biggest problem most of us have with this policy. it's codified in law. sure, Obama will not use it, but really, the next GOPer pres? in a time of perceived crisis?

        how much do YOU trust Marco Rubio's judgment? Chris Christie's? Jeb Bush's?

        fuck, it is not all about Obama's presidency - it's about policy in the long fuckin run. the country actually will probably still go on after Obama is out of office. jeebus haystack cristos.
