Congress has no international authority. It's laws do not apply outside the US. Congress has no right to know the details of any negotiations between the Executive branch and any foreign government. And the last thing we want is for any international negotiations to be made public, and politicized by Congress. That includes peace negotiations with Israel, and trade negotiations.

It's called  Read More...

The citizenry are served by the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. Perhaps not well served by any, but served. We all legislate. The executive is a mite to be endured for four or eight years. Witness the fact that we would consider such candidates as we have.

just another of a long list of Obama power grabs over congress. He has created such animosity with congress there is no way they would want to help him. He has no leadership skills. he is dogmatic and tyranical

Congress does not make International Agreemenrts that is the Executive Branchs job
09:33 AM on 06/26/2012
Speaking of "power grabs" you should just study the history of the Bush admn. for starters. Then also reading what each state is doing with the Republicans running roughshod over women, the poor, the disabled, children, college students, the middle class, unions, teacheres, police & fire workers ... you name it. Republicans are out to destroy it. They're starting to try to model under country to something that more closely resembles the countries they are waging war against for the past 11 YEARS.

More lib talking points? Good job.

To dadw5boys, your wrong about congress and its authority ver foriegn affairs.

“the Constitution is best read to yield great clarity: it provides for autonomous foreign-policy initiative in the executive as well as ensuring that Congress has the means of addressing wayward or antidemocratic behavior by the executive.” The president, has the power of initiating foreign policy, but the successful pursuit of foreign policy requires cooperation between the executive and Congress.

......and thank the framers for that.

Actually, Republicans don't believe in transparency and keep everything shrouded in secrecy except when it comes to talking about controlling women's bodies ... except no one is allowed to use the V word. Maybe they don't understand it unless it starts with A, C or P. People usually fight against something because they fear it. I wonder what power they fear from women (yeah, yeah, off the subject, I know). If Democrats are confronting our Democratic President, I would say that's an indication of them being some decent people ... representing the people of our country ... their constituents.

It is Time to bring back Tarriffs and Protect American Labor. " Free Trade " is Very Expensive
05:43 PM on 07/03/2012
Free trade is not "fair" trade for Americans...it is free profit to corporations that move to these free trade areas. Free trade deals are anti American and does NOT support or defend the Constitution...it actually erodes it, and these tricksters know that. Anybody that supports these deals should be tried for treason.

Nothing can say anything more about the disrespect this president has than watching Vladimir Putin's body language and boredom sitting next to him at the G20 meetings.This disrespect is mirrored by most foreign dignitaries and now by most Amercians.
When you elect a man who has never had one iota of business, financial or leadership experience you wind up with someone who has cost the US worldwide prestige and respect.
The only ones to benefit from this president are his puppetmasters who have been pulling the strings of this obedient, naive marionette for almost 4 years.
09:17 AM on 06/26/2012
So you want Vladimir Putin to approve of who is in the Whitehouse? By far and large if there is disdain for the US among our allies it is because of the last administration who stated on numerous occassions, "You are with us or against us". That was a barely veiled threat to anyone who didn't support our invading of Iraq. Of course nobody fell for it so we had to bribe cash starved 3rd world countries into sending a few soldiers to make up the joke known as the 'Coalition Of The Willing'. It was more like we need some money so we will be willing to sacrifice a dozen or two.

Stop justifying this president by comparing him to another failed president. Sooner or later this president must take responsibility for his own failure.

That was about as hilarious as when Bush said..."I looked into Vladimir's soul and saw a good man"

Without some Free Trade Agreements the USA would have lost millions more jobs !
Imgine you owned a Patent on a Product and it was running out. What would you do ?
Wait till it ran out then set there while forgien businesses made your product and shipped it in to the USA cheaper than you could make it ?
Or go overseas and make it there yourself ?
While that is what happened with Free Trade -- it just so happened that 100's of Patents were running out around the same time period. That is why so many jobs were lost at the same time.

You mean it wasn't things like....

Fisker Motors, buying aircraft for our Air Force from Brazil, Chinese companies building bridges and roads here in the USA with Chinese labor and materials, an Italian company now owning Chrysler along with the auto unions as a partner, GM fast becoming Chinese Motors, Gibson Guitar, GE moving their X-Ray division from Wisconsin to China (Keep your eye on Waukesha , Wisconsin ......Their biggest employer just moved out.General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha , Wis. , to Beijing) and .http://www.wnd.com/2012/02/obamas-giveaway-oil-rich-islands-to-russia/ ?

The free trade agreements are the product of the US Chamber of Commerce lobbying efforts. The US Chamber of Commerce is a very conservative, right wing lobbying organization who's only concern is maximizing profits for those at the top of the economic ladder. The well being of the middle class wasn't even an afterthought. This transferring of American jobs started under Nixon for political reasons in order to bring China into the fold and given a big green light by the Reagan Administration for profit reasons. Since then, the American middle class has been dying a slow death and is now on life support. There is a disconnect in your thinking or lack of. The biggest losers in these trade agreements is unionized labor which supposedly only supports democrats. You can't have it both ways. You want to support American manufacturing? Don't shop at Walmart and don't vote for anybody with an R after their name.

In a campaign speech - only ones we get - O said he needed 4 more yrs to 'finish the job' - that should scare the s--t out of every American -we know what the job is.

Fellows the answer is "NO" you don't have a market on that word.

Obama is doing the classic, "How do you keep a turkey in suspence, I'll tell you later" bit.

If your going to be the most open administration the be open. I'm not a fan of this administration due to their about face over the past 4 years. The Congress by the Constitution, is the checks and balances over the Administration. That being the case and the President's pledge to be an open administration why hide anything? The President had enough time to set up an 800 number for any resident of AZ to call if they feel they have been abused of their constitutional rights by any AZ Police Officer and resend an order for ICE to cooperate with local Police yesterday in response to the Supreme Court ruling. What a way to run a country! Secret deals with Drug companies to gain support for the Healthcare Bill that was done behind closed doors. By the way, there are more Democratic Senators asking for information on the Pacific deal then Republicans. Wake up America
