On his own

July 7, 2014

Congress would not go along with President Barack Obama’s plan to close down coal-fired power plants and drive electricity prices up. So Obama is acting on his own to do so. U.S....

I think that it is more important that we keep the republicans, specifically the tea party, out of the white house than who we put in the white house. Imagine how much better off we would be in our nation, our state, if the previous republican president and governor were not in office. Compare Minnesota's economy to Wisconsin's and you can see the destruction these tea party republicans can do.

It's not that democrats are good in office, because they are not, in my opinion. It is just that republicans are so much worse. Even Ronald Reagan wouldn't recognize today's republican party. I quit voting republican after voting for Bush and Pawlenty in his first term.

The Media is ready to crown a queen, Hilary Clinton has the Presidential Candidacy locked up, not Elizabeth Warren.

I wouldn't expect republicans to like Elizabeth Warren, or anybody else that stands up for the betterment of working people.

eaglesfan - I don't think we need a female Obama for President. She has several traits she has used all her life to get where she is at which is not quite telling the truth and deceit.

Elizabeth Warren works hard for working middle class Americans. I worked support her running.

Our President has taken it upon himself to ignore everything our fore fathers had set up for government. It doesn't matter what congress does, Obama does what he wants, and has stated he will continue too. The President is not supposed to be a supreme ruler/dictator. This is why there is a congress. The immigration problem has been around for a long time and is getting increasingly worse, but for Obama to say he is going to make executive changes on his own, is Tyranny. Why is this guy not impeached yet? His term can't get over fast enough!

The current crisis on our border is due to the unilateral actions of the president. Now he wants to "fix it" to the tune of 4 billion dollars. Another 4 billion we don't really have.

He caved and gave in to the demands of terrorists. That door has now been opened to them taking more hostages because they know we have a president that's "willing to deal". He has put many Americans overseas at much greater risk.

It is not the number of executive orders he's given but their impact that is much more relevant. And, just because they haven't personally impacted you doesn't mean they need to be ignored for their potential impact on many other Americans world wide.

You guys really need to work on better material if you want to keep trying to defend this guy.

But President Obama's executive orders have hurt the American people the most than those of the previous presidents.

Pres. Obama has issued fewer executive orders than most, if not all, of the previous presidents.
