Skip to comments.Senate Democrats dispute Obama's decision on Israel boycotts

Senate Democrats have opened a rare public feud with President Barack Obama over a congressional effort to discourage America's trading partners from targeting Israel with politically motivated boycotts and sanctions.

O the Islamonazi par excellence

Constitution? Don't need no stinkin Constitution
he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed
shall=must. As to faithfully, I suppose that depends on the faith. To an executive who worships himself, his actions are faithful in his mind.
You really need to fix your tagline.
