    Obama says he is not a king, but you could hardly tell that with all his executive orders that cirmcumvent the people's representatives.
    Not only that, he presumes his subjects have already anoited him for another term.  He has been quoted as saying he has 5 years to accomplish his goals.
    He is always taking credit for anything positive and blaming the Republicans for anything negative that happens.  A real leader of a free country would say "the buck stops here," as Harry Truman said.  Or as JFK once said,"It is not for us to place the blame for the past, but rather fix the course for the future".  Guess he doesn't want to emulate  former leaders in his own party.

      Well those guys had to take credit for thier giant mistakes--Vietnam and droping the bomb.  Or am i mixed up?  You have maybe 3 executive orders that you are especially mad about?

      What are these executive orders are you refering to? Republicans have enough issues within their own party at the present time. Right now they're pretty much a joke and the clowns running for the nomination are more comedy relief than serious contenders.

        Did you listen to Obama's speech on energy and gas prices?  That was a joke and the worst part the joke is on us.
        He wants taxpayers to pony up more money to pay off his campaign contributors.

        They're not governing, they're moralizing. Using gvt to enforce their religion.

    We reaching the point rapidly where we're becoming the "subjects" of the federal government rather than the citizens of this nation.  The founding fathers purposely constructed the US Constitution so that the executive branch could not become tyrannical.  That's what we're seeing with Obama. Nowhere in the US Constitution does it state that "executive orders" exist.  The constitutionality of the practice is in question and it is time to take the issue through the federal courts.

    So what will it be?  Subjects or Citizens.
