Bush now leads Obama in approval.

Shocking, huh?

Barack Obama does not need to practice law so why maintain the license?
To maintain a law license in Illinois requires continuing education, maintaining malpractice insurance, etc.
Most people who earn a law degree and pass the bar exam take great pride in their accomplishment and will go to great lengths to maintain their status.

To those who slide through on preferences and flunk the bar exam (like Moochelle), it means little.

Matt Lauer asked Paula Deen, "Do you have any doubt in your mind that African-Americans are offended by the N-word?"
Paula Deen's response: "I don't know"
Understandable response given that black folks use the n-word all the time.

None of us know. The top 10 hip-hop records either have that word in the title or the lyrics. And a lot of young blacks hear it every single day.

You are right!

What gives Obama the right to unilaterally change his misbegotten law without Congressional action?

The problem is NO one will sue him?

He just dumped the mess in the laps of 2016 Dem POTUS candidates.

The only reason for the delay is that Obama knew enforcing the mandate would blow the Democrats out of the water in the 2014 elections.
So Obama delays it to the 2016 POTUS election?

Are will there be a another punt down the road of the ill-begotten law?

Snowden releases a new public statement through Wikileaks

For decades the United States of America has been one of the strongest defenders of the human right to seek asylum. Sadly, this right, laid out and voted for by the U.S. in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is now being rejected by the current government of my country. The Obama administration has now adopted the strategy of using citizenship as a weapon. Although I am convicted of nothing, it has unilaterally revoked my passport, leaving me a stateless person. Without any judicial order, the administration now seeks to stop me exercising a basic right. A right that belongs to everybody. The right to seek asylum.

In the end the Obama administration is not afraid of whistleblowers like me, Bradley Manning or Thomas Drake. We are stateless, imprisoned, or powerless. No, the Obama administration is afraid of you. It is afraid of an informed, angry public demanding the Constitutional government it was promised and it should be.

I am unbowed in my convictions and impressed at the efforts taken by so many.

The hypocrisy inside all Liberal circles is shameful as hell. From the welfare hoods to the Jesse Sharpton Poverty Pimps to the Holier-Than-Thou Media, it's nauseating.

Racial Jeanet's and Trayvon Thugs across this land use creepy-ass cracka along with the N word every second sentence but the Mat Lauer azzhole types are only concerned with a successful white businesswoman.

The Liberal victims are plentiful and obvious as hell. If your skin is white and especially if you are successful, you've got a big red Bullseye painted on your back, chest and forehead, creepy-ass cracka.

JEB Bush on immigration reform
(CNN) The U.S. House of Representatives should pass the Senate's comprehensive immigration reform package with a few additional requirements, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush co-wrote in an opinion piece.
The Republican reiterated his stance that immigration reform needs to be tailored to boost the ratio of visas issued for skilled workers and reduce those granted for family members beyond spouses and minor children.

JEB does not seem to support "the comic book wing" of the Tea Party republicans
LOL

And let me say a big fat thank you for supporting ObamaCare since I'm one of the "lucky" ones not in the "younger/healthier" crowd. Ironic that the younger healthier folks will pay a lot more than the rest of us, huh?
Wonder how that's going to go over. And here you thought ObamaCare was going to be the best thing since sliced bread.
Get a washcloth. That egg on your face must be getting dried and cracked by now.
There is definitely something severely wrong with you. You can't even grasp a simple concept of how insurance works.
You are laughingly talking about eating donuts and twinkies and drinking soda while diabetic. Do you know how much diabetes costs this country per year? Most of it could be avoided. You should be ashamed of your attitude

Oh I thought you and shinning would like to jerk each other off in private. Talk to him, he speaks your language of homoeroticism, maybe he speaks Polish as well.
