Selective outrage seems to be a specialty of yours. 104 rounds in five years is not much for a golfer. Boehnor plays about 120 rounds a year. As leader of the do nothing Congress that should be a bigger concern to you.
It is probably a safe bet that you are also outraged that Obama has taken a summer vacation. Here are the totals for the past four two term presidents and the amount of time they spent on vacation at this point in their administration:
Obama 15 trips for a total of 96 days
GW Bush 58 trips for a total of 349 days
Clinton 11 trips for a total of 84 days
Reagan 29 trips for a total of 180 days
It seems that vacations were never an issue before.

You got it! It was a trick question because Obama is the first.
As for the Dubya video, I did not ask for video of the second worst president of the century. I already saw that one any way. To me any president that has time to play golf is goofing off. They will have plenty of time to play golf on the taxpayer after they are out of office.

No, Obama will not use his executive power because the House will pass imm. reform in October. Look at the proponents, it's all over. Overwhelming support from the right left, evangelicals, law enforcements, businesses and labor unions.

Ok you don't like that one. How about this.

"Aug 7, 2013, 11:46am MST

Financial benefits of legalizing undocumented immigrants outweigh costs"

http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/news/2013/...

Not good enough? Well then how about this one.

"An Immigration Stimulus: The Economic Benefits of a Legalization Program"

http://www.immigrationpolicy.org/just-facts/i...

Or this.......

"National and State-by-State Economic Benefits of Immigration Reform"

http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/immigr...

Have you seen the light yet? Your excuse of how they bleed our Country has been disproved many times over.

Rubio is an idiot to try to sell his terrible law by saying Obama will grant amnesty anyway. It's congresses job to check Obama and the last time I checked, Rubio was a congressman. Either Rubio thinks everyone is stupid or he is just a very poor leader. We don't need anyone like him anywhere near the presidency.

Most politicans learn to speak double-talk from day one, and they are counting on their constituents being too stupid or not engaged at all in what is going on in this country. Even if the media won't air the truth, the truth always seems to filter out, no matter how hard they try to deceive us. The problem is too many Americans on the dole want to continue to live without breaking a sweat, and they will as long as the current crew is in office. It is past time for a clean sweep.

Spud what part of President Obama has the legal authority to parden all of the illegal aliens do you not understand? Will he do that if Congress continues to evade the issues of immigration reform? Well your guess is as good as mine.

No Teddy the real problem is trying to determine what the real truth is. It's become clear that all politicians are out for themsleves and not for the Americans that they are supposed to represent. That a plan has been put in place to bring the world under the control of a central government....the U.N.
Our only hope is to maintain our Constitutional rights and even those are being stepped all over by the Patriot Act that President Bush put in place and President Obama extended. While we the people just fight with each other about those darn liberals and those darn conservatives. We fight each other and they take over.

What's bleeding the US, is the Military/Industrial Complex. The military budget for the USA, IS LARGER THAN THE COMBINED ANNUAL BUDGETS, of ALL THE REST of the countries IN THE WORLD.

Your elected Representatives ALLOW THIS.

Right on, friend. Don't forget the NDA Act, the National Defence Authorization Act). Both the Patriot Act and The NDA Act are 'CITIZEN CONTROL ACTS'.
While your at it, Check out FEMA Holding Sites, with the Huge Furnaces and Barb Wire on top of the fences, FACING INWARDS, and the TRAIN TRACKS that lead directly to the one-way, turnstyle, gates.
These Sites are also located in the WARM, SOUTHERN, UNITED STATES. There's LOTS MORE, if you want to delve deeper, like WHY ARE THERE HUGE FURNACES INSTALLED AT THESE SOUTHERN LOCATIONS?
Scary isn't it.

I have been stating this fact for over a year and a half! He is an outright LIAR. He and Illeana Ross, the two GOP's from Florida, combined, to keep the Embargo against Cuba, going FOR YEARS, because it gets them re-elected in the Miami-Cuban areas,(their ridings). They have no thought for ANYBODY ELSE, only for getting re-elected!

Sweetie if that gives you a feeling of security that the President doesn't have the right to do that then more power to you.
But you are wrong. He does have the legal power to do that and he already has on a small scale.

"The Framers of the U.S. Constitution, in Article II, Section 2, Clause 1, provided that the president "shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment."

http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com...

That gives him the legal right to do just that...to pardon. In my opinion if Congress doesn't do their job by passing immigration reform that covers all the basis which will allow those here now without felonies to adjust status. But to also stiffen border enforcement along with work requirements and monitoring of our visitors. Well they will be passing up an opportunity to fix what is broken and it will put pressure on President Obama to keep his word.
I think Congress needs to get off the golf courses and back to work.

ok well for some reason I think it has to do with it being some kind of international law.he said he cant do it .i think being the pig that he is,if he could do it he would of done so,the dreamers that was different coz they are born here,they were going to school,and he gave it to them for 2years.there is no obligation for us to keep these people here.the house could of blue slipped it,that would be doing nothing.he is the president of america his job is to whats right for americans(lol not that he does).but he made it pretty clear he cant do it,so we will see.he also said there are something he can do but thats not one of them,it would iinvolve a lot of court.so I say rubio is trying to do a scare tactic.

I think the president has set this thing up where he can do almost anything. The AG won't do anything against him and congress hasn't done much to stop this power grab either. This immigration reform bill will only benefit the rich elitists that exploit their cheap labor, politicians who receive campaign contributions for supplying the cheap labor and liberal politicians who want to expand their influence by getting more people dependent on government freebies. The negatives of this bill include chronic high unemployment, depressed wages, stressed SS and Medicare systems, and overcrowding to mention just a few things. And these jokers will accept all these things just to help themselves get reelected? That's a sad fact. You're right about both parties being in it for themselves. Peace
