Welcome to the John McCain Syria Dog and Pony Show

John McCain is acting once again. He played this role before during the 2008 campaign so he has had some practice and does it quite skillfully by now.

This is What Happens When We Let Obama Get Away with Creating Laws at the Stroke of a Pen

As I noted in my last post, Obama has no Constitutional authority to create laws at the stroke of a pen with his so-called “executive” orders. He has NO such authority granted to him under our rule of law, the document he took an oath to uphold and defend. If we let the executive undermine […]
