Doesn't the Executive branch also run the Bureaucracy? The president appoints and is senior to the heads of numerous government departments that run the entire show that is the US government. Right?
Well, Executive departments.

Other places, like with Supreme Court Justices, he makes nominations, but the Senate is really behind who takes the seat.

Yeah.

In the Westminster system we tend to roll all that into the legislative branch. I'd rather they be separated.

Last time I checked no US president had a personality cult. (Possible exception being FDR)

We might adore our presidents but we don't worship them.

Are you kidding? Reagan's viewed by the Right as Christ Reincarnate.


That's funny. In all my years of doing my job I have NEVER seen damn near religious shrines built in people's houses over a politician until retard got elected in '08.
It's actually scary how much of a free pass he's gotten. Remember, he can now kill American's with impunity and with no legal recourse.

You know how I know that's a lie? Because you would rather shoot yourself then step inside the house of anyone who voted for Obama.

Then you're a ******** idiot. In my line of work I go in houses without knowing political alignment, because it means nothing to me when it comes to appraising a property. Cash is cash.

I probably have a dozen or more photo's that I've taken in the course of my work that are displaying such rooms. It's stunning. And I avoid talking politics at work because bluntly speaking, it can affect the dollars I can make, so I stay neutral.
Of course, once I get in the car I laugh my a** off at them.

Then you're a ******** idiot.

Now now, there is no need for that kind of foul language. After all, you are the one who completely despises everyone who voted for Obama, reasons be damned.

Not that they put up much of a fight, usually.

Not usually much point, you get there by having a good solid record as a judge behind you. Only one who springs to mind who just had no business ever being nominated was Harriet Miers.

I guess you're too young to remember Judge Bork.

Yeah, I was a wee babby when he was nominated.

He was at least a judge first, though.
doesn't everybody hate that piece of s**t?

basically, unless congress actively pursues stopping him, the president can pretty much do anything he wants at any time.
