Obambi has no business being anywhere near the Oval Office; a ceremonial role would suit him better.

He's a wannabe Royal Prince; even his ears are almost as big as Charles'.

"Clinton, as we all know, manipulated Congress by his outsized charm and ability to seduce the opposition inside and outside his party to work with him on acceptable compromises."

So the FBI files on individual Congressmen, had nothing to do with it?

I think this is a profound article. One thing I would like to add: Clinton may have left things to his staffers originally, but he was devoted to his political survival. While he never, by any means, went rightward, he did come to an uneasy accommodation with the center-right consensus of this country. Obama lacks this adaptability and really doesn’t have the degree of control over his administration that maybe we should expect of a Chief Executive. He’s going to be mated to his agenda to the end and in the end, it will bring him down.

This makes sense to me; I have a dear relative who is on Obama’s staff; he formerly worked for a very left-wing Congressman. He’s only in his 20s. . .it’s really amazing, when you actually look at the numbers, how few people really work for the President and how young they are. . .maybe that’s the case for all Presidents too though—the young and fired up idealists. . .

No one should be elected to the presidency without having had a lot of executive experience -- either in business or at a government level outside of the Congress(governor, for example, or cabinet secretary).

I do agree with this. I also think that it's just dumb to have a blanket approach of anti-incumbents. Professional politics takes skill and experience, and very few rookies win a Super Bowl. You simply have to have some folks who know the ropes and don't bumble around and get taken advantage of like this man-child we have in the Oval Office now.

Same thing on the Hill.

Fairly astute observation.

I've noticed a recurring theme in all the major pieces of Democrat legislation over the last 25 years ~ that is that "Somebody's gotta' get punished".

I've never understood that. We have an entire criminal code available to cross reference and yet the Democrat legal writers on Capitol Hill continue to rewrite it inside the new laws.

The two best examples of this are the old Hillary Care deal where doctors got punished (most of the text) and the newer Obama Care deal where patients got punished (most of the text).

It's like no one ever heard of "incorporation by reference" ~

If the Democrats are going to persist in this nonsense the least they could do is bring in some federal administrative types to advice them in the crafting of bills. Of course, being Democrats, all the folks who'd otherwise be willing to do that have been grilled by some doufous half-drunk dopeusing reprobate in front of a TV camera, and it's not likely they ever want to go back to the Hill under any circumstances.

Soetoro’s presidency is the worst Congress in history?

A Democrat WOULD blame it all on a “structural problem” when it’s simply that what liberals want for America is wrong, and the fact that people readily recognize this, is their problem.

Interesting theory, but IIRC the “stimulus” bill, as well as the cap and trade bill, was largely written outside of Congress by the Apollo Alliance, an unholy cabal of anti-American activists...

No, Clinton survived because he had the good sense to hire and then listen to Dick Morris.
