    The sc got Citizens United wrong. Congress needs to fix it. If that tweaks mcconnell's idea of the 1st amendment, so be it. In actuality, it would cut off for him and other politicians a valuable source of money for campaigns. Excellent. Even better... allow no donations beyond $100 from any person or organization... not even the candidate himself/herself. It would of course destroy the power of interest groups... ranging from emily's list, etc. to unions and even the NRA, but so what? They are not persons except by a extreme stretch of judicial imagination.

    A President cannot enact a constitutional amendment. Period.

    Executive orders seem to bypass Constitutional law and the congress quite handily.

    Obama just got his 'Dream Act' into play, I think... how'd that happen?:dunno:

    Didn't even bother to use an executive order.

    He doesn't even have a role in it.

    Axelrod is an idiot.
