And since Obama hates and belittles everything Bush, I guess it is only natural for him to follow the lead of Bush.

If only this were true. Republicans HAVE to care about the garbage that Limbaugh and FoxNews spew out because the people who vote for them care about it.

Because they knew it would not pass or be struck down in court. Realizing your mistakes is not compromise.

Just take note of the fact that you must listen to these sources since you seem to know everything that they say. So in fact, you are supporting them and use them as a crutch for your positions.

You do realize that if a bill is considered at all, the senate reads it, makes changes and sends it back to the house for revision. It does not just kill it, refusing any thought of compromise (like the democratic senate does).

These points about a politicized justice system are not just a comparrison to Canada. In fact all the parliamentary democracies who's systems are based on the British model have fairly unpolitical justice systems.

The president has proven that by not compromising he is able to get all of what he wants for his party.

Mr. Obama has a very easy job...simply sit back and watch liberal republicans and the Tea Party Right eat each other alive.
