        has nothing to do with reality, and you are too smart not to know that.  

        He is involved in the legislative process whether he's in the Congress or not; and each fucking law they pass dictates where my money goes.   A prime example is 40 bil in the immigration bill that he's hawking.  

        Please don't quibble and split hairs.   Obama's finger prints are everywhere - including his latest secret trade deal.

          are joined everywhere by an obstructionist house and a rabid  right wing GOP. This is not a quibble. I don't excuse the president's actions I don't agree with, but nor do I make global statements about his powers that are not correct.
