Unaccompanied children being placed with sponsors July 26, 2014 at 1:54 p.m.

Rightwing media fails to distinguish the difference on this issue between "illegal" and "refugees". When the republicans were in-charge for 8 years, not only did George sign a bill that gives them due process, George also signed executive orders to bring them in. Did anybody hear any rightwing outrage then? nah

Obamacare hit by ruling, but subsidies to continue July 24, 2014 at 1:31 p.m.

Surely, you jest, if wrong is wrong regardless of who is president. Otherwise, the republican controlled congress would have sued Bush and called for impeachment. Fox and Rush would have stirred up a hornet's nest, 24/7. It is foolish to not recognize partisan politics and total ignorance not to know the law making process and the powers granted regardless of party.

A man should always stand where rightwing media tells you to stand. Right? Which mean that you are not man enough to stand for anything.
.

I see a lotta of ignorance on how our government makes law, the authority the president draws from the constitution and what authorities congress has included in bills and also what congress has granted in the way of latitude to the agencies in the rulemaking and implementation process. Rightwingers must also have a very short or no memory of the implementation of Medicare part D during the 8 year rein of republican control. If anything, part D was more unpopular than obamacare and a very difficult to implement. Deadlines for enrollment approached with penalties in toll. The penalties were waived by George W Bush. The deadline was extended by George W Bush and extended again and again by the agency, all by executive power and the rulemaking process. $400 billion unfunded social program.

Now, either you believe that no president has authority or you believe that only a black democrat president doesn't have the authority. Which is it?

Obama seeks $3.7 billion to deal with border kids July 11, 2014 at 4:41 p.m.

Pobucker: Obviously, you have NOT read the law. These are children! Are they victims or are they here unlawfully?
See:
Sec. 235

(a) Combating Child Trafficking at the Border and Ports of Entry of the United States
(A) DETERMINATIONS- Any unaccompanied alien child who is a national or habitual resident of a country that is contiguous with the United States shall be treated in accordance with subparagraph (B), if the Secretary of Homeland Security determines, on a case-by-case basis, that--

Obama seeks $3.7 billion to deal with border kids July 11, 2014 at 3:14 p.m.

Guard against what? Surely the Republicans don't want the Guard to shoot them?
Or maybe you do not understand the 2008 law:
.
Unaccompanied minors fall under the bipartisan law, William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, which passed the House and Senate unanimously and was signed into law by President George W. Bush.
.
That law says the children cannot be sent back. They must instead be held humanely by the Department of Health and Human Services until the courts release them to a “suitable family member” in this country.
The child “shall be promptly placed in the least restrictive setting that is in the best interest of the child,” the law stipulates. “Placement of child trafficking victims may include placement in an Unaccompanied Refugee Minor program … if a suitable family member is not available to provide care.”

While the politicians are mouthing and asking for photo-ops there are real people on the ground taking care of these children. CNN interviewed one and asked if they needed the National Guard brought in? He said, "National Guard? Why? Are they going to bring teddy bears? These are kids!"

People may disagree with DACA but to question this administrations use of authority without questioning all the other presidents' use is either, the lack of understanding of the "deferred enforced departure" (DED), the constitutional power of foreign relations, partisan politics (even though, both parties have historically used it) or you think this president should not hold as much power as other presidents because he is a democrat and he is black. Which is it?
.
Example:
September 12, 2007
"Today, President George W. Bush issued a Memorandum directing the Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, to defer the enforced departure for 18 months,.."
