If you thought it was bad BEFORE this passed, just wait! If something isn't done soon, we won't recognize America. As if we can after IDIOT OBAMA has taken control and dictated what we can and cannot do. He hasn't completed all he plans to do but will if Americans don't vote him OUT this November.

Twenty-second Amendment, which states that "no person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, ....thus saith the internet

If you think Obama is bad now what do you think he'll be like when he cannot be re-elected? Think about it.

And those Republicans are wigged out!!!

On second thought, don't think about it: pray, visualize, positive thinking,whatever.

Why can't we have a president of neither party, just a good old country boy with a load of common sense!

I'm GLAD the President has acted in a way that was necessary because of the obstructionist Teapublicans in Congress. There is no valid reason why those who choose to become a member of our military and fight/die for our country to be denied citizenship! They will do their time serving the US and should be rewarded for their duty to the country.

Now, what is the liberal press going to do in terms of reporting Obama's latest act of stupidity? Is this fuel for Romney. or does Obama actually think the American public will be unaware of his stupid attempt at policy making?

You're glad the POTUS, (I will NEVER ACKNOWLEDGE him as MY president) did this, you must like Communism! Why don't you take yourself and your buddies away from America which is home to the FREE and the BRAVE?

@June Hey if you hate the President and his policies YOU leave! Me,I'm sticking around for his next 4 years! You seem to conflate Communism with just not getting your way. You may need to nip your meds after November when he wins in a landslide.

I agree completely with my fellow Arizonan, Zee Kallah. "Why can't we have a president of neither party, just a good old boy with a load of common sense!" I would like to add to Zee's brilliant comment that the Constitution makes no provision for political parties. If the Tea Party does not have the vision to truly take our country all the way back to the Constitution, it does not deserve the name "Tea Party".

When people can't use their real names or their profile pictures, I'd say they must have something to hide. You're speaking out against the country of your birth (more than likely) as long as people don't know who you really are. When you see the mess this Idiot has done to America, when your eyes are finally opened to see farther than your nose, when Obama uses you as one of his subjects who has to do as he orders, you may come out of the trance he has you mesmerized in.

@June The only ones hiding their pics/profiles are the ones talking sedition, like you and Allen. Teapublicans have a habit of projection, which means whatever they themselves are guilty of, they project onto others. Feel free to look up the meaning of sedition and Communism while you're at it.
Why not state specific liberties the President has taken away from you, go ahead,name one. You speak of a generalized MESS, let's hear what your complaint is.
In fact he has accomplished much in his short 3 years.
Obama’s success rate in winning congressional votes on issues was an unprecedented 96.7% for his first year in office. Though he is often cited as superior to Obama, President Lyndon Johnson’s success rate in 1965 was only 93%.
On his first full day, he froze White House salaries.
He appointed the first Federal Chief Information Officer to oversee federal IT spending.
He committed to phasing out unnecessary and outdated weapons systems, and also signed the Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act to stop waste, fraud and abuse in the defense procurement and contracting system.
Through an executive order, he created the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform.
In his first year, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act created and sustained 2.1 million jobs and stimulated the economy 3.5%.
He created the Making Home Affordable home refinancing plan.
He oversaw the creation of more jobs in 2010 alone than Bush did in eight years.
He oversaw a bailout of General Motors that saved at least 1.4 million jobs, and put pressure on the company to change its practices, resulting in GM returning to its place as the top car company in the world.
He also doubled funding for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership which is designed to improve manufacturing efficiency.
He signed the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act giving the federal government more tools to investigate and prosecute fraud in every corner of the financial system. It also created a bipartisan Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission to investigate the financial fraud that led to the economic meltdown.
He signed the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure (CARD) Act, which was designed to to protect consumers from unfair and deceptive credit card practices.
He increased infrastructure spending after years of neglect.
He initiated a $15 billion plan designed to encourage increased lending to small businesses.
Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, he saved at least 300,000 education jobs, such as teachers, principals, librarians, and counselors that would have otherwise been lost.
He dismantled the Minerals Management Service, thereby moving forward to cut ties between energy companies and the government.
He used recovered TARP money to fund programs at local housing finance agencies in California, Florida, Nevada, Arizona and Michigan.
Ordered 65 executives who took bailout money to cut their own pay until they paid back all bailout money.
He pushed through and got passed Dodd-Frank, one of the largest and most comprehensive Wall Street reforms since the Great Depression.
He made it so that banks could no longer use YOUR money to invest in high-risk financial instruments that work against their own customers' interests.
He established a Consumer Protection Financial Bureau designed to protect consumers from financial sector excesses.
He oversaw and then signed the most sweeping food safety legislation since the Great Depression.
He issued a Presidential Memorandum reaffirming the rights of gay couples to make medical decisions for each other.
He signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, restoring basic protections against pay discrimination for women and other workers. This was after the GOP blocked the bill in 2007. Only 5 Republican Senators voted for the bill.
Closed a number of secret detention facilities.
He ordered the closure of the prison at Guantanamo Bay. It was Republicans (and a smattering of Democrats) who prevented him from following through.
He authorized and oversaw a secret mission by SEAL Team Six to rescue two hostages held by Somali pirates.
He provided the troops with better body armor.
He supported and signed the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act, which made more money available to enable better medical care for veterans.
He put an end to the Bush-era stop-loss policy that kept soldiers in Iraq/Afghanistan beyond their enlistment date. (personal note: my son will be in harm’s way for six fewer months with Obama as president, so you know I love this one.)
And let us not forget, He directed Navy Seal Team Six to take out Osama Bin Laden!
So, let's cut the crap, shall we??

"No is not an option—I want to sign the DREAM Act into law!" Obama said. "I've got the pens all ready, I'm willing to work with anybody who's serious to get this done, and to achieve bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform that solves this challenge once and for all."

Oh....a complete usurpation of legislative or judicial power, so why is it our elected officials of congress are not calling for IMPEACHMENT?

Article. I.
Section 1.

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Take note: there is no mention of the President.

Impeachment was good enough for Andrew Johnson. He was upset his veto was passed over, one vote kept this law breaking president from being thrown out of office.

This usurpation of authority is a violation of the Constitution, and therefore is a “high crime" and calls for IMPEACHMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And a complete removal from office.

Those whom are not calling for such, need also to be removed, for failing to enforce the laws passed by congress.

About time Obama got some balls and did the right thing for these people. Teabaggers/Racist of course hate the idea of anyone but them getting a fair shake in life..especially those 'different' from them in any outstanding way.

Not a huge fan, presently personal,of Obama but this time he did right by the people it helps. THat being said...I still favor him over anyone the GOP has to offer...after all it was they who took our nation down with their wars for the profits of a few, caused the housing crash and unleashed the corporte control of our politicans and on and on. Obama has had the GOP obstructionist at his heels from day one ..but even so, he has done a lot to over come the crisis the GOP and it's supporters took us into as a nation.

GOOD FOR OBAMA on this one !

So true, Yulan, my dear friend. The party system, the elections, everything funded by Koch -- all an illusion.
