Forget the Presidency. His brother f*cked that one up. Better yet, Teddy would've made a good Olympic Swimmer. Remember Chappaquiddick?

That's why he drank like a fish and screwed everything in sight.

The point is that Obama, as President, has limited powers and has no right to demand anything.
The negotiation of any deal should be within the Congress, with Obama having the power to accept or reject the final compromise. When Obama states that certain elements are non-negotiable, he exceeds his power.
You psycho right wingers constantly bitch that Obama is not taking ENOUGH leadership and then in the next breath you right wing idiots whine that he should just stand back and WATCH congress. Unbelievable!!!

Gaza and the Polls, the Bad and the Less Bad

Virtually every American political leader has defended the Israeli strikes on Gaza, most notably President Obama. And fans of the Israeli bombing and missile campaign can draw satisfaction from the results of a CNN poll, which indicates that 57 percent of Americans support the Israeli strikes, versus 25 percent who say they are not justified.

Those of us in the minority, inclined to point to things like Israel’s blockade and virtual occupation of Gaza, or that it broke the most recent ceasefire by assassinating a Hamas leader, might refer to some interesting internals in the poll. For instance, 36 percent of Democrats (versus 41 percent) said the Israeli strikes were not justified. This sentiment is held in contradiction, even defiance, of Obama’s own expressed views, which apparently are more in line with what one might expect from a GOP politician.

This is a sign that the vocal defiance of the “All of Jerusalem belongs to Israel” resolution, forced through at the Democratic National Convention, was not a mere one-off; it rests on a solid base of sentiment. As Alana Goodman argues in the above linked article, the days of “bipartisan” support for whatever the heck Israel wants are numbered.

Still stacking stupid eh?

The Benghazi consulate served "only" to provide diplomatic cover for a nearby CIA base which was conducting a secret war in Libya and the region. If a US ambassador had not been killed there chances are good that US citizens would have ever heard about the ruckus. The only question that needs to be answered is "why the fk was Stephens in Benghazi that evening?"

Will add that Petreaus told Peter Kings committee on September 14th that he wasn't sure whether or not it was a terrorist attack or a spontaneous uprising__maybe he was bullshting the house intel committee on the 14th. which was a Friday__perhaps the CIA was bullshting the administration as well?

Not at all.

President Obama has the power to veto the entire bill.

He has the right to tell Congress which things will trigger that veto.
