i've got to give it to you Felix...you've taken a simple complaint about Obama's lack of understanding of the Constitutional separation of powers of each co-equal branch and by flinging silly ad-hominems and strawmen successfully turned the topic away from Obama's faults, into a silly argument about you.Thanks, Dog, but I'd rather it not be about me. That's not my doing. And I'm gobsmacked that a thread titled "Obama's Not My Daddy" that opines that the president doesn't know "his place," is "arrogant" and needs to start acting like "our subordinate" is actually about Constitutional separation of powers. but, how long can you pretend to hold a shred of credibility or integrity of your own while doing the above?Talk about strawmen! I'm not pretending any of the above.Obama has exceeded his authority, as have all presidents in my lifetime. That's no excuse, and it's condemnable. But when people criticize one president for behavior that they've applauded in others it raises a question. When the behavior in question is arrogance, or not knowing one's place, i.e. being uppity, the racism alarm bell starts ringing.I don't know about you, Dog, or Erik or Grouse, but there are lots of people in America who are uncomfortable, if not angry, that a black man is president. Some are better at veiling their racism than others. Others don't bother. It's not that criticism of Obama, per se, is racist. That's an ignorant retort intended to deflect criticism of racism, as is "the race card" rebuttal. There's tons of criticism of Obama that's not racist. You've mentioned some of it. I agree with you sometimes, but not others. But complaints about the Obamas' imperiousness simply doesn't pass the smell test.
