Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) Obama in power grab

In a letter to Obama on Wednesday, Byrd complained about Obama’s decision to create White House offices on health reform, urban affairs policy, and energy and climate change. Byrd said such positions “can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.”

While it’s rare for Byrd to criticize a president in his own party, Byrd is a stern constitutional scholar who has always stood up for the legislative branch in its role in checking the power of the White House. Read More

We’re seeing more and more criticism adding up on Obama and his policies! With his approval rating going down below 60% for the first time. This is takeing place in a short time of 2 months, if it keeps going down at this pace it will not be long that Obama will start feeling the effects.

  1. Sen. Byrd suffers from dementia and at time can’t remember his own name. It is his staff that is making decision for him.. At times He thinks that Bush is president and other time its Joe Biden. With his KKK history, he hasn’t come to terms that a Black man is President.

    goodtimepolitics: looks like a comment that would come from MSN liberal news, you should be ashame of yourself for saying such a thing about a man that has served his country all his life.
    Byrd is a stern constitutional scholar who has always stood up for the legislative branch in its role in checking the power of the White House.

  2. Byrd may be a thousand years old, but I’d still pick him over our Kenyan Teen when it comes to understanding and revering the Constitution.

  3. With joeland7 saying “with his KKK history, he hasn’t come to terms that a Black man is President.” I would say that Joeland7 is racist with such a remark!

  4. The real power grab, manufacturing a crisis, then exploiting it. From Dick Morris’ column

    “So, having inherited a recession, his words are creating a depression. He entered office amid a disaster and he is transforming it into a catastrophe, all to pass every last bit of government spending and move us a bit further to the left before his political capital dwindles.”

    This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Introduced bills and resolutions first go to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills and resolutions never make it out of committee. [Last Updated: Feb 14, 2009 2:33PM]

  6. HR236 PROTECTS NON-MILITARY SOC SECUIRTY

    HR 219 MILITARY BOTH urgently needed this will help the middle class which is why WASH DC SLUGS don’t want anyone to hear about it.

  7. FOUNDING FATHERS NIGHTMARE–STIMULUS

    Thomas Jefferson pretty well covered much about our situation today in two quotes made by him over 200 years ago. Our founders fathers feared what we are living today:

    1. “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”

    2. “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”*

    I don”t think the presidenr’s clueless. I think he knows EXACTLY what he is doing. HE was tutored by communists and making a career of destroying the productive for benefit to the leeches. No, he knows what he is doing, alright. STIMULUS deprives YOUR children/adult/vets of meds and leaves you to SILENCE the SCREAMS without meds rather than pass HR 219 AND 236 to protect SOC SEC for military and non-military and vets lockbox law and cola to protect medicare WITHOUT RAISING taxes, and WITHOUT cutting services.ggogle HR 219, HR 236 and retiresafe.org
