    so good you had to post it twice.

    not only did we hear you the first time, that's exactly what GWB said.
    you act like GWB was the first one? Maybe reread your own post #46.

    Congress has ceded power to the executive over time...generally for practical purposes. That's just a fact, regardless o which party resides in the whitehouse.

    Fine. Doesn't change the fact that congress has ceded power to the executive for decades and generally for practical purposes. Enough with your partisan bull ...

    what partisan bull ? emphasizing the continuity between Obama and Bush? or was it my suggestion that the demonization of US presidents (starting with LBJ and Nixon) by progressive leftists set the table for the contemporaneous food fight?

    It's clear Congress doesn't want responsibility even for clearly enumerated powers like declaring war, and at the moment seems to be obstinately avoiding doing anything at all.

    In the nineteenth century the virtues and the flaws of Congressional power became plain, the pendulum has swung more to a strong national leadership by the Executive and Judicial branches. That that's much improved over the bad old days is debatable.

    the swing has been very dramatic in the last decade or so.

    The article attempted to address the evolution of the condition since the cival war. Your response emphasizing the recent continuity, while relevant, was banal tbf.

    btw, still waiting for you to give color to your accusation of partisanship, I heard none.

    do you have any particulars on that, or did you just say it idly?

    Imperator-in-waiting Ted Cruz to announce tomorrow:

    Senator Ted Cruz intends to declare on Monday that he will run for president in 2016, making him the first major hopeful to formally enter the race, an aide to Mr. Cruz said.


    Mr. Cruz, Republican of Texas, will make his announcement at Liberty University in Virginia, where he is expected to be a speaker at a convocation ceremony. His intention to declare his candidacy was first reported by The Houston Chronicle and an aide to Mr. Cruz, who requested anonymity, confirmed the report on Sunday.

    Cruz is an irrelevant footnote to the 2016 election.

    I do however enjoy watching boo get so spittle spewing agitated by him.

    Cruz, "doc" Carson, Jimmy Ricky, InSaneTorum, Walker, etc, will drag too-moderate, Wall St-loved JEB to the extreme right, where he must go to win all y'all's tea bagging votes.

    He's a ( stain of an) American citizen, like Obama, through the US citizenship of his mother.

    1. He's not a Bush

    2. He can defend his views and articulately argue them. This is the biggest thing for me. As a conservative, you have to be able to defend every part of your views against the MSM. Since perception is reality If you cannot communicate well you can't push any views.

    3. He's not in anyone's financial pocket yet. Therefore people will fund him because they like the person he portrays himself to be.

    4. He went to an Ivy League school, so it'll keep all the conspiracy theories going.

    Basically, I pick a long shot, since it never gets to Texas anyways. I wouldn't be upset with Scott Walker. I could live with Paul, Perry, or Huckabee.

    What about you?
