Discuss Kathy's answer to: Assessing the President

Tell us how you think President Barack Obama has handled the economic crisis so far. What's he done right? And what's he gotten wrong?

Ok Mr. so called president.  When your own Senate Minority leader states that you crossed a line...ya think ya might want to listen?    Of course, you usually don't listen to anyone so we are thinking that is a big fat NO....What a FOOL you are mr. one term president.

ONE AND DONE   OMG OBAMA MUST GO@

There frogfool is my thoughts on this article.  PROVE THE ARTICLE A LIE!  You can't so, that makes you the inept fool.

 

Senate Minority Leader Warns Obama to Back Off the Supreme Court about OBAMACARE.

WASHINGTON -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday that President Barack Obama "crossed a dangerous line" this week with his Supreme Court comments and warned that the president needs to "back off" and let the high court do its work.

During remarks at the Rotary Club of Lexington in his home state, McConnell said Obama was out of line when he said Monday that it would be "an unprecedented, extraordinary step," even tantamount to "judicial activism," if the Supreme Court overturned his health care law. Republicans have pounced on the president's choice of words and say they amount to trying to intimidate court justices. The White House has been defending the remarks all week. The court is currently weighing whether the individual mandate -- the core piece of Obama's signature law -- is unconstitutional because it requires every American to purchase health insurance.

"He looked at the line that wisely separates the three branches of government and stepped right over it," McConnell said of Obama, according to his prepared remarks. "But what the president did this week went even further. With his words, he was no longer trying to embarrass the court after a decision; rather, he tried to intimidate it before a decision has been made. And that should be intolerable to all of us."

The GOP leader said Obama's words were "particularly troubling" given the way he has treated the court in the past. He cited an incident two years ago when the president used a State of the Union address "to publicly chastise the court for its decision on a another case he didn't like -- with members of the court sitting just a few feet away." McConnell was referring to the president condemning the Supreme Court's decision in the Citizens United case in Janurary 2010. In a split vote, the justices ruled that the First Amendment prohibits the government from restricting political expenditures by corporations and unions.

Ultimately, it is the Supreme Court's duty to ensure "we're a nation ruled by laws," McConnell said. "It’s why justices enjoy the freedom to decide cases as they see fit, even if it means upsetting the very president who appointed them."

He said his disagreement with Obama over the comments "is not about what I think of the president as a person," but what he thinks of the duties of the president. The Republican leader urged others to condemn the president's remarks.

"The president crossed a dangerous line this week. And anyone who cares about liberty needs to call him out on it," McConnell said. "So respectfully, I would suggest the president back off. Let the court do its work."

McConnell, of course, is the same GOP leader who said in November 2010 that "the single most important thing" that Republicans hope to accomplish in Congress is "for President Obama to be a one-term president."

Poor is an attitude, Broke is a temporary situation.....UNLESS THIS MORON TAKES THE REST OF OUR HARD EARNED MONEY. There is no such thing as freedom of choice, babies NEVER choose to die.

poor stupid far right extremists. they can do nothing but copy and paste on a thread no one is on. there are political questions that people are actually on but they do not copy and paste and you can not participate on them because they use their own thoughts and opinions.
