"Power Of The Pen" In The Hands Of A Leader


If the signatures are hard to discern and you find it hard to follow which president was in office when, the following graphic from TPM visualizes current GOP "Derangement Syndrome" As phony as a three dollar bill.



New playbook talking point: "Obama as Dictator?"

executive orders

A president works for the good of the nation and obstructionist ideologues work against him.  

 " I will go it alone." The 34:45 minute - 34:55 minute mark and reoccurring throughout the speech.

Since the GOP seems to throw Rand Paul at every Obama public appearance, we thought we would focus on his response to the SOTU. Chris Matthews, Joy Ann Reid and former RNC Chair Michael Steele discuss GOP responses to the SOTU. Paul's response is of particular interest because he is visible with each and every opportunity to respond to the president.  You would think the GOP would offer up a far more intellectually gifted  and credible "rebuttal" spokesperson. 

The need to "go it alone," thus leaving an obstructing party holding a dangling rope. 

Let's take a look at close and specific look at how Reagan, Clinton and Bush W. dealt with "constitutional authority" as spoken by Steele.
