"How can any Harvard trained lawyer who taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago believe that the president of the United States has the authority to suspend enforcement of an act duly passed by Congress and signed by the president?"

Well, this is exaclty what the grand old tea Party shut down the Government unless he agreed to do!

So, typical GOTP, require the President to do as they request, if he does, they blame him for doing it!

Google Medicare Part D rollout, see how these things work or in the case of major changes, doesn't work initially and has to be changed!

Sarah Palin, Richard Cohen and today’s sad, sad GOP
On their planet, it's not racist to compare the national debt to slavery, or "gag" at seeing an interracial couple
I’m getting a lot of attention, even outside the wingnut blogosphere, for explaining on MSNBC that Sarah Palin’s equating the national debt with slavery is another example of “the white grievance industry” manufacturing and peddling new widgets of rage to the GOP base. I’m not sure what’s noteworthy there. Palin is indeed part of a vast white right-wing anger machine mostly run out of Fox News, though its unrivaled leader is Rush Limbaugh. It’s powered by the paranoia among too many Republicans that white people are somehow oppressed by our first black president.
You’re forgiven if Palin is on your ignore list. In case you missed it, the half-term former Alaska governor riled up an Iowa crowd this weekend by declaring what she was about to say “isn’t racist,” then immediately complaining that liberals (presumably) would “try anyway” to make it seem racist, and then making her ignorant comparison between the national debt and chattel slavery, which is at best deeply dismissive of slavery’s cruel and persistent legacy in American society, if not actually racist.
As I said on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation,”“white privilege” can be a tough term to define precisely, but I’d say Palin ran a clinic on it in Iowa. White privilege consists of either being so ignorant about slavery that you can compare it to the national debt, or so entitled that you know it’s an absolutely bogus and invidious comparison but you go ahead and make it anyway because … free speech! Or something.
But this is the main political capital that the Republican Party seems to have today: the anger and grievance of older white voters, most of them male, at the multiracial country that’s emerging in their lifetimes, as personified by President Obama. The mainstream media, though, is having a very hard time deciding how big a deal that is, and so they highlight someone – in this case, me – calling it a big deal, in order to suggest, well, liberals are going a little too far on this race stuff, too. Aren’t they? No, we’re not.
The Washington Post’s self-destructive columnist Richard Cohen showed the trouble many pundits are having reckoning with this new world, in a column about why New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will have a hard time with the very Iowa voters Palin pandered to last weekend. The problem is that in describing the attitudes of those voters, Cohen, sadly, seemed to share them. He’s mainly in trouble for this paragraph (also, to be fair, for a lot of his past creepy writing about race):
The problem with what Cohen wrote is that he seems to share the “gag reflex” of those “conventional” voters.(And is “conventional” really a synonym for “backward” and “racist” at the Washington Post? Is that in the stylebook?) Cohen also manages to compare these Tea Party devotees to the Dixiecrats who bolted the Democratic Party over civil rights legislation – but then he says Harry Belafonte was wrong to call them “racist.” OK.
Richard Cohen is an absolutely terrible columnist, but his Op-Ed today, along with the Mediaite and Real Clear Politics posts about my Palin remarks, shows the trouble journalists are having reckoning with the racism of many (not all) Tea Party voters and their leaders like Palin. Clearly, anyone who demands the right to use the word “slavery” to describe the national debt is verbally challenged and/...blah blah blaaaaaaaa
RIP TEABAGGER GOP CONS

Agree until your last sentence. Rightwing?? Are all aware that Harry Reid took a simple law to help in the home ownership area, obliterated the bill which had come out of the House, then glued the Obama Care Act to it and made it appear to have come from the House??? Are all aware this is not Constitutional?? Are all aware that a Law Suit has been filed to bring this into the open and the Obama Care Act would be abolished?? You see, it is too simple to believe , but all taxes must originate from the House to be Constitutional!!!Read this in the litigation news.

Trouble is on the Horizon , how long will it take for the litigation to proceed thru the courts??? This may be some reason to screw around till the time for Obama Care runs out?

Horse Hockey is not sufficient to cover this. Every one in Congress is there with the idea to persue their own agenda. Basically , this is to keep their jobs til retirement and go home millionaires from collecting money. Every one there has an organization behind him/her. That is why the Democratic ones are weakening on Obama Care with the up coming elections in mind . We , the People, can vote(still) any way we wish and it scares them!!!

Do you wish to have a monstrously large gov`t , or, one that follows the Constitution?? Maybe you like the lying that these people give you??? I do not!!!

GOTP false equivalency ALERT!!!!!!

We prefer a Government that works efficiently and robustly and we do not, repeat, do not believe a teeny tiny little Government will suffice to keep the greatest country on the planet functioning at the highest levels of performance!!!!

So NO, we do not prefer your lame GOTP generic cry for "small Government"!

The size of our Government has to match the size of it's expected place in the world of Governments! If we intend to be the greatest, we need the greatest investment in it!!

There are very few depts. of this gov`t that work efficiently now. Much less getting larger . Most of the Fed. gov`t should revert back to the States to find efficient. Suggestion would be for the Fed to take care of protecting the U.S. and return the Dept`s of Education "with strings for equal for all", the dept. of Agriculture, and the E.P.A. Just for starters. They also could get out of the mortgage business of Fannie and Freddie and give that back to the Banks. Every one of these dept`s have lost money in their operations. Now taking over the Health Care has cost millions and doesn`t even work ! SS# was doing O.K. til the Congress and gov`t raided it. Medicare will be the same as well as Medicaid and go broke. How many more Scandals doe it take before you admit they happened???

I'm a 69 years old Vietnam Vet and I belong to the Tea Party. I'v never seen any thing you would call radical happen, ever. So would you tell me, young man or woman,what radical acts of violence have they committed? If that be true, will you give some examples of this radical crowd's violent acts. Can anyone else?

Or are you just regurgitating what you've been told to think?

I think you could have benefited from more money into the Department of education, you have trouble with actual sentences.

Have a look at this...

Why doesn't this occur here anymore? The EPA that's why!

KY would not have a farmer left without the Dapartment of Agriculture.

And last but certainly not least, KY takes home more money from all of us than it puts in, by a lot!!!!!

So, maybe you KY's can f-ing pay for yourselves and save us all money?!!!?!!? It seems "Big Government" is paying for your ass to come here and complain!!!
