After reading several day of posts on this forum, I'm wondering if some the people writing posts have studied what kind of government we have in this country. The reason that I ask this question, is some of you talk like the president is all powerful and can solve the problems in this country by himself. This is not a dictatorship were the president can do anything he want to do. He is required to try and work with the house and the senate. The only power he really has is to pass or veto. This summer he could not even make recess appointments because the republicans somehow manage keep the senate going during the summer recess. Even when one party has all three branches of government, the minority in the Senate can filibuster any bill they don't like. So, why blame everything that has wrong with this country?
