    Obama has gone too far. He's not our dictator in chief.

    • Obama has gone too far. He's not our dictator in chief.

      Doesn't he violate the law enough for you? Woodward seems to think the president isn't dictator enough.

      Actual Woodward quote:
      "So we now have the president going out (saying) 'Because of this piece of paper and this agreement, I can't do what I need to do to protect the country.' That's a kind of madness that I haven't seen in a long time," Woodward told MSNBC on Wednesday.
      An account of the "threat":
      Nevertheless, the same aide apparently sent along an email, apologizing for his outburst. In that email, the aide wrote: “I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today. ... You’re focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. … I think you will regret staking out that claim.”

      A sideshow indeed.
      What I find interesting is that for a POTUS who is fond of executive orders, is the choice he makes as the leader of the free world...
      Campaign in Newport News, VA to blame the other side or try to avert the manufactured crisis with some creative executive order? We know which decision our "empty suit" leader made.

      • It's just more Obama blackmail. Government does this all the time. The first thing that gets cut when schools have budget problems are things kids need. It's never unnecessary things teachers want. The biggest enemy Americans have is their government. This is a president that says he can stop **iggers in Chicago from killing each other by attacking a ro and gun club for rural whites.

      • I think it is true that many presidents were willing to violate the law, what Woodward seems to be referring to. I thin this president is willing to do that. What Woodward is claiming is that President is unwilling to say that he will violate the law "because of this piece of paper". How is this president different from other presidents in that? Did President Reagan announce that he was willing to violate the law when he pursued his Iran contra policies? Did President Bush talk about his willingness to violate the law when he went to war in Iraq? And when, by the way, did we decide to make a willingness to talk about violating a law, let alone actually violating laws, a good thing?
