Anyone else catch zeros comment?
“I hear the voters, and I am not changing course”.
Could he have any more contempt for the American people?November 6, 2014 at 2:43 pm #28481

I was on the road and listened to his speech and then much of his Q&A afterwards. He was arrogant and unapologetic. He more or less said he’s willing to work with the Repubs so long as they give him exactly what he wants and if they don’t give him what he wants he’ll use executive orders. One not so subtle comment he made in the speech was that 2/3’s of the registered voters didn’t vote. It was clear he was implying that the election results aren’t legitimate because those who voted aren’t representative of the general public. I expect his behavior will get worse in his remaining two years, not better.November 6, 2014 at 8:54 pm #28511
I agree that his executive orders will continue and his final two years will be the worst. Maybe he thinks he can accomplish his goal of total ruin if he tries hard enough…. God help us!November 6, 2014 at 9:36 pm #28514
His executive orders can only go so fare, he can’t control the purse anymore so no more money!!! He is limited to what he can do now. It is a great day. Remember guy’s executive orders do not fund anything, no cash no way to do things so O the king has to make deals to get cash. The GOP will not close the government but will not give O what he wants.November 6, 2014 at 10:42 pm #28518
We’ll find out soon enough how each side is going to proceed. O’s utter contempt for the Constitution to date isn’t likely to change, and so whether he gets away with it for another two years will be up to the Republicans. We’ll now see if they are just all talk.November 7, 2014 at 2:16 am #28527
Perhaps after the Revolution , we can restructure the government as a whole , eliminating both the senate and the executive , in favor of the congress , the judicial , and the people . During the Revolution , we only had the Continental Congress …………thats all we still need now , and the judicial .November 7, 2014 at 4:46 am #28528
There’s a reason there’s executive, legislative and judicial branches of government. Checks and balances which those same founding fathers understood.
What we need is people who both understand and keep them separate.November 7, 2014 at 4:48 pm #28543
Ah, yes….”The Benevolent Father”! Our nation’s #1 guns and ammo salesman and one of the top reasons why I prep.
Tolik, let’s not forget…PART TIME GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS! In the era you were referring, the vast majority of the elected officials had full time jobs other than politics. They were farmers, merchants, or some other productive member of society. They knew the value of the dollar, had practical managerial skills, and the ethics of real work.
