    I wish we'd go to single term, 6 year term presidency. Then no president would spend the better part of the first 4 years playing safe politics to get re-elected while the other party does everything possibly to play political games and stonewall every decent idea to prevent re-election.

    I've heard that idea pitched before and it's an interesting thought exercise for sure.

    Oh, but he was the poster child and savior for all the neocons after Clinton, don't you remember?

    "The law, the Hatch Act of 1939, was intended to keep improper politics out of the federal workplace. At its best, it prevents people in political power from abusing their positions. It prohibits coercion by a government supervisor — such as pressuring employees to volunteer for or contribute to a campaign — and shields the civil service and the federal workplace from politicking."

    I hope one-man jury comes back and explains to us why Obama is the worst for spending only 5,000,000 not 15,000,000,000 on something that every president spent money on since Ike.

He's over the top on everything, it seems - over twice the golf outings of George Bush, he exceeded Bush's 8 year deficit spending in 3 years, he's over the top with his czars way in excess of any prior president, he's trying to implement policy by regulation far beyond any prior president, 1st president to take $15 billion from Medicare to give to his wife so she can hire Bugs Bunny to tell us all to move, making recess appointments when Congress not in recess, etc. If there is an award for "above & beyond," I give it to this guy.
    There is so much BS in there that unraveling it all would be tantamount to an intellectual lobotomy. Does he honestly believe it all or is he you just content to celebrate discredited propaganda?

    If the former, I am happy to provide factual sources that refute much of it. T'would be a shame for him to build his tower of contempt on a foundation of quick sand.
