The question is, how much of the 'political capital' is obama willing to expend on that situation? Every little thing obama doesn't do for the democrats in congress is another little thing that won't get done that he wants.Originally posted by: Farang
No he is saying that Obama is going to bend over and take it in the ass by Pelosi and Reid, without bothering to mention a reason why he would give up his power as the executive. I understand it is a give and take process but really Obama holds most of the cards. It has traditionally been this way when the President's party controls part or all of congress.Originally posted by: DixyCrat
what CSG is trying to say is that often times the executive branch gives things that they say they would rather not to people of their own party in order to get things of greater priority, that they do want, done.
Just ask yourself, would obama give up protecting us from the fairness doctrine in order to get some unpopular(among democrats), but necessary, things (ex: clean coal) going?
this of course is moot as it's a stupid idea to shut down people who say things that are political in nature.
I'll give you an example: how, exactly, do you give 'fairness' against someone saying 9/11 was an inside job? and why wouldn't libertarians get some 'fair air time' along with the totalitarians?
It's a jumbled stupid mess and this USSC would never stand for it.
