Response to begin_within (Reply #296)

Mon Dec 19, 2011, 07:31 AM

324. The OP is delusional in thinking anyone has suggested the President is powerless.

However the role of division of power is prevalent. Many seem to think the President can do it all. Unfortunately if you want great laws you need a great congress. Not really the President. Most people seem to also forget the fact that the President's vetos can also be overturned by said Congress. And it was done to Bush a few times during his turn.
