No.

But the promiscuous use of esecutive orders for the purpose of circumventing the will of Congress--in effect, the use of executive orders to assume dictatorial powers--is something that no other president, from either party, has ever done.
You seem to forget this is the least productive congress in a century. You cut them too much slack.

And thank God for that! Anything that thwarts Obama and his merry band of Chicago thugs works for me. May Congress continue to be less productive - at least while these jokers are in office.....

Obama the Great Uniter, Nobel Laureate, a pure genius and stalwart defender of the middle class can slow the rise of the ocean's waters, heal the sick, save us from financial ruin and win the war on terrorism but a Congress where Republicans control the House is just too much for him to manage. So, like our petulant child of a President Mikeyy blames others for Obama's failure.

Chosen by the American people you mean? Obama didn't start a war and Kieth Olbermann isn't on the air anymore.

Oh, there's no doubt that he was appointed. While the DNC was first enamored with Hillary, it decided to promote the fairy tale that is Obama because being the party that sponsored the first 'black' president would have much more prestige.

The mainstream press, always lapdogs for the Democratic party, were very compliant and did everything they could to hide Obama's sordid past, his nefarious connections, the dirty tricks he played against his opponents as he rose in the Chicago/Illinois political machine, and they pumped up his very thin, thin resume.

Had Obama been Republican, he would have been pilloried by the press the way Herman Cain was, as Dr. Ben Carson was because the press and the Democrats do NOT like any black who dares to step off the Democratic plantation and start thinking for themselves. If the press had been honest and investigated Obama the way they do those candidates that they see as enemies (see Bush, Romney, Cain, Palin, etc.), Obama wouldn't have been able to be elected as a dogcatcher.

The cheerleading by the press, which carried enough water for Obama to fill several oceans, created a fervor amongst the American population that rivaled the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. His first election was a moment of mass madness in this country; the second election could very well have been the result of voter fraud but the only sites I could find that documented voter fraud are considered conservative sites, so I know that those pieces would not be believed by lefties.... Snopes and the rest of the MSM very firmly state that voter fraud is very rare...so be it.

This excuse for a congress with no ability to do their job has become boring. The reason their poll numbers are in the tank is because they are as useless as your sex organ.

First, it takes two parties to come to an impasse. With the Democrats, it's been 'my way or the highway'. There has been NO negotiation or compromise from Obama or Reid. The House had no option but to dig their heels in. And I'm glad they did. They were able to stem some of the tide of destruction that Obama and his thugs are looking for. That the low information public doesn't acknowledge that is immaterial.

Second, you have NO idea how useless or useful my sex organ is....

The Republicans in Congress have done a GREAT job.....though, actually, I wish they had done better job to thwart Obama's 'progressive' movement. If they had, we would not have been saddled with the disaster called Obamacare. At least, there is not one Republican who voted for that catastrophe....and that is to their credit.....

This demonstrates two separate realities. The real reality and the fictional one the Right embraces. Only a right winger could see a party that is spliting, has the lowest poll numbers ever and who has been the least productive ever as great.
