The President does not think he lied to the people. No, the President thinks the people are too stupid to understand him.

That is the message that came from the White House. It also reveals how liberals view their fellow citizens....as stupid.

With all the Obamacare website issues, we find out that multiple convicted felons are working as Obamacare navigators.

Why would anyone trust this?

Gotta agree with Premier but if it was asked the answer would be like......As a result of these monumental efforts, we now have over 250 million people on health insurance programs in the US and I will use my pen to write executive orders to implement progress since Congress doesn't want to do what I have asked of them.

he and others on his flight plan may not see that they have mislead or failed to act. They feel that these changes are needed and are part of a change of direction they are driving for the good of all. Their feelings out weigh metrics, debt and accountability.

For 8 years, we heard liberals complain about Bush's use of executive orders as dictatorial, abusive, unconstitutional, etc.

Today, liberals give a standing ovation to President Obama's use of executive orders.

Here is a list of safe question the President surely can’t miss…….

Mr President have you been to both of the states that are playing in the super bowl? ………"I've now been in 57 states -- I think one left to go." --at a campaign event in Beaverton, Oregon

(side line reporter) Mr. President who do you think will win the super bowl?.........."Hold on one second, sweetie, we're going to do -- we'll do a press avail." --to a female reporter for ABC's Detroit affiliate who asked about his plan to help American autoworkers

Mr President I know you are a big football fan, but I hear you are a pretty good bowler as well…… "No, no. I have been practicing...I bowled a 129. It's like -- it was like Special Olympics, or something."--making an off-hand joke during an appearance on "The Tonight Show",

Mr. President will you be betting any money on tonight’s game?……….. "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." -- defend

"I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." -- defending his tax plan to Joe the Plumber, who argued that Obama's policy hurts small-business owners like himself, Toledo, Ohio, Oct. 12, 2008

Mr. President what do you think will be the final score of the game?……….. "Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions." --exasperated by reporters after a news conference

Mr. President one more question………………… "Why can't I just eat my waffle?" --after being asked a foreign policy question by a reporter while visiting a diner in Pennsylvania

Premier is right. Second, this is a finite time for an answer. The question will need a one or two brief sentence answer.

More hypocritical that the right thinks it is bad for the President to use and are going to pass laws to prevent him from doing so.

Chuckles, NO president should write dictates, EVER. Laws are, according to our constitution, to be written by the legislature. We have three branches of govt with equal (supposed) power so that no one branch can operate without the other two. This was done to prevent another monarchy type of dictatorial govt. In recent years the President, including Bush and those before him, have used Czars and recess appointments and the "pen" to implement legislation they want. We need to do two things, eliminate all of the above and return to our constitutional way of governing. (Many of the items, such as recess appointments and work calendars for legislators, were done because of the time needed for travel and the primitive means of communications at the time. Those can and should be easily amended in light of our present fast travel and communications.)

It does not matter.

Politicians do not answer the difficult questions.

So, asking such questions, is pointless.

There are few people who can ramble on for minutes on end in answering a simple "yes or no" question as well as President Obama.

Liberals might admire that because he is one of theirs, but they would not if he was a Republican.

We should not believe him, period. His track record tells us not to believe him. His answer would be just another lie anyways, he wasnt aware, he didnt know,.....hey, "at this point, what is the difference anyways"? He will soon be a lame duck President and his reign will be over.

It’s a good letter. There’s every reason for most of us to disregard what politicians say and that’s especially true at present.

Reeder- President Obama is the first President, except for Wilson and FDR, to BYPASS Congress advance HIS agenda. This is against Constitutional law and Common law. Your favorite whipping boy, GWB, never (you can make up the allegations you want) went against the Laws of the Republic. Will you ever stop living in the past just to make a point or demean a popularly elected President

Mr. Reeder:

You are the hypocrite. You and those who stood and applauded President Obama saying he will act alone after criticizing President Bush for his use of executive orders.

We did not approve of Bush using them and we do not approve of Obama using them.

Mr. Cassleberry,

Your answer would be,

"Now folks (which would be we white people) need to understand that there will be "bumps in the road" and this is just one more."

I would ask this question:

"Mr. President, you keep talking about gridlock as for not getting things done but how do you plan to get things done with a party that you have lambasted for the past 5 years?"

No situation justifies a president to forego the Constitution in order to push forward his personal agenda. Just because past presidents have used such techniques does not make them any more legal or tolerable, and it smacks of arrogance.
