We already have Obamacare and they stupidly voted to give back pay to furloughed government workers, so wanting to waste another colossal amount of money on amnesty should come as no surprise.

So do the taxpaying citizens of this country. He treats us like raggedy step-children.

As I learned when I was in the military, respect is earned, not granted based on one's rank. We had to respect the rank, but not necessarily the individual wearing the the bars.

The old Peter Principle can be applied here "people are often elevated to their utmost level of incompetence". Clearly, we respect the office of the President, but it seems that this President doesn't respect those who elected him. He'd rather consort with flash than substance.

I agree, I respect the office of president, but have trouble resepcting the man who would be a dictator.

I do not know if you realize it but whenever somebody uses the term "we the people" they are not taken seriously. You can go on with your teabagger bs that some people are more important than others, but "We" are all the people. Even the brown ones. Deal with it..

Ah, the oracle of Topix has spoken. So, anybody who disagrees with your views is now a teabagger. Surely you can't be that obtuse.

Yep Now that GOP backed down rather than let the country go into default because it was clear that the ruthless chicago thug tactics of the socialist demoRats left no doubt that they were willing to let the country burn down rather defund part of or delay the unaffordablecare train wreck we can get on with immigration reform. Let's start enforcing immigration laws that aren't being enforced, deporting illegal mexiholes that aren't being deported ASAP, and start making it very hard for illegal mexiholes to live and work in the US instead of kissing their azzes like we do now. While we're at it let's start putting scumbag employers who illegally employ illegal mexiholes over American citizens in jail instead of letting scumbag employers get away with employing illegal mexiholes and let's legislate very heavy fines for blatant pandering to illegal mexiholes instead of acting like the treasonous marxist socialist demoRats aren't pandering to illegal mexiholes for votes..

Since you cloak yourself in teabagger language it was obvious, but I can understand why people are running away from that label these days. Fair enough.

Putting it another way, since Republicans have lost the popular vote in five out of the past six presidential elections, including twice to Obama, they clearly are not "the people". Deal with it.

Baloney. I find it quite sad that you have the audacity to gloat about the current state of this country. Never have we been so divided...who is to blame for the divisiveness that has engulfed this country? I'll give you a hint, it isn't the "teabaggers".

Feigned outrage. Who is gloating about anything? I am merely pointing out that when "We the people" loses election after election is is about time that they accept the fact that they are in the minority.

"Never have we been so divided". Really? For a people that has fought both a revolution and a civil war that is a remarkable statement. Was Obama responsible for those too?

If your name isn't Beyonce, or Jay Z, or any of these Hollywood types, you don't stand a chance at being taken seriously by his administration. It's sad how limited White House tours have become (government shutdown??) but meanwhile his crowd was able to come and go, they have more of a voice than we do. Democrats claim that Republicans are elitist, they are wrong. Obama has been treated as if he's a king, and his royal assembly are the people who have his ear. Jay Carney is the court jester.

Obama backs anything that builds his constituency. He backs deficit spending and back pay for govt. workers because he knows he will be paid back with SEIU votes. He backs amnesty because he knows 85% of the amnestied lawbreakers will eventually vote for him. His dimwitted AG is blocking having to show IDs to vote because many of his most reliable votes currently come from the dead, pets, cartoon characters and illegal aliens. He doesn't care about the American taxpayer or the worker who loses his job because of these policies. The bad part is he can bank on the stupidity of his base to blindly follow him even though his policies are killing the middle class. Democrats believe anything.

In case you didn't know, We the People includes ALL the citizens of the Untied States of America. It does not refer to one selct group of people. Yes, this country is definitely more divided than ever before. It's like a parent who has a favorite child, pitting one against the other, until both sides can't stand the sight of the other. Divisiveness exists and it is being pushed by this administration. Like it or not, that IS the reality of it.

Neither party has any good reason to say 'we the people' because both parties put themselves before the people. We the people means we prefer what is best for the people, the taxpayer, the economy and the country. As they are, both parties are against 'we the people'. But while the R party seems fixable by getting rid of the neocon elitists, your party is beyond repair. The Democrats vision for this country is nothing more than a sad surrender, similar to a narcotic addiction.

Teabagger is like racist. When somebody calls you a racist or a teabagger it means that you are right and they are wrong but they are afraid to admit it so instead they want to change the subject and insult you in the hope that you will run and hide after being call a "bad" name.

I was simply pointing out how a democracy works. So many people on the right seem to think it means that their party wins all of the time. Actually we have elections and whoever gets the most votes wins. Sometimes it is your favored candidate and sometimes it is not. That is the way it goes. So if somebody is demanding that they bow to the wishes of "we the people" it is important that "we the people" includes the majority of the voters. Otherwise it is meaningless.

What happens when 60% of the voters dislike both candidates? I haven't liked a candidate from either party since I was able to vote in 1969. The media and big corporate dollars pick the guy they want and that goes for both parties. The middle class has no say. We're relegated to picking the lesser of two evils after the elites decide who gets nominated. That's how we the people are manipulated by our rigged system.
