It is well within his powers to do so.

WELL, DEBIL TAKE THAT BET WITH ONE CAVEAT: THE NEW COMPANY WILL HAVE FEWER "MANAGEMENT" EMPLOYEES AND WILL ULTIMATELY PRODUCE A BETTER PRODUCT. THERE'S NO ROOM FOR SHIT-STAINS LIKE YOU ANYMORE, JOHN; IT'S TIME YOU GOT BACK TO WORK ON YOUR STATIC ELECTRICITY MOTOR THAT RUNS ON AIR AND NOT OIL.

SO, UM, AMERICAN MANUFACTURING IS FINALLY FIGURING OUT THAT YOU DON'T NEED A GRAPHICS DIRECTOR TO PRODUCE COLORFUL PLACE-MATS FOR COMPANY EVENTS? GENIUS! PURE GENIUS!

Pay attention to the future,Obama will almost certainly claim
that part of it is Classified,he is on the brink of CYA,even
now to declare the real reason he cannot reveal the truth,and
the reason that Clinton ran away,the reason why Rice lied is
the whole thing is deemed too sensitive for the Public to get
all the facts,therefore its all ;not his FAULT!!!!
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.

That's why he drank like a fish and screwed everything in sight.
It's a family thing, you know.
Those Kennedys are very good at bending the government laws for their benefit but those laws of physics catch up to them all the time.

Trees, bullets, bridges, cars, water, etc.

They cannot be bent or broken as easy and are much less forgiving.

YOU SEE, JOHN, THE REAL JOHN GALT GAVE SOMETHING OF REAL VALUE TO HIS FELLOW HUMANS - ALL OF THEM. YOU PROPOSE GIVING THEM A HEART ATTACK. IT'S NOT THE SAME THING, JOHN.

As for me, we grow & can my on vegetables, shop at a local fruit market & have my own bees. We buy organic when possible. No processed foods.
Same here. We've assured our food safety. You already know the government can't do it. Why bother with the FDA? A behemoth of 'regulations' routinely skirted, leaving us listening to the giant sucking sound of billions of dollars wasted.

Congress can pass whatever it chooses and let the President decide whether to veto. Threats by the President to veto specific legislation make the Congress useless if obeyed.
