You will never guess how many vetoes Obama has issued in 6.5 years



Can you guess how many vetoes Obama has issued in 6.5 years?

Four. That is almost the lowest of any president, since the beginning of time.

By comparion George W. Bush issued 12 vetoes. Bill Clinton, who fought with Republicans, issued 37. Ronald Reagan, who fought with Democrats, issued 78. You don't even get this close to finding so few vetoes unless you go back to Warren G. Harding, and even he issued more vetoes (6) in three year than Obama did in 6.5 years.

To find a president who issued so few in with at least three years in office, you have to go back to Millard Fillmore (1850-1853), who issued zero.

What should make this even more surprising is that when the Presidency is of one party and the Congress of the others, vetoes should be even more likely. Obama has faced an opposing House since 2010 and an opposing Senate since the beginning of this year.

But Obama only issued four vetoes--the Keystone Pipeline, a single appropriations bill, an NLRB election rule, and a law about notorizations.

The reason that Obama has issued so few vetoes, as Mark Levin noted today, is because Republicans will only pass bills that Obama will sign. Even Jimmy Carter, who had a fellow Democratic congress, issued way more vetoes (31).

Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are lapdogs of Obama. They are too timid to even pass legislation he might not like. Or perhaps, as I have suggested previously, it is not timidity but rather a reflection of a broader agreement on policy, with Obama, McConnell, and Boehner being part of one big party called the "Democrat-Republicans".

Jeb Bush wants you to know that he is the ultimate multitasker! He says that he can love his Mexican born wife, Columba, and control the Mexican border at the same time! I remember how President Clinton "compartmentalized" himself so while the upper half of him handled affairs of state, the lower half handled affairs with Monica Lewinsky, so I suppose this is possible.

In New York, Men can be arrested for rape if women don't say "I want sex!"


New York State passed a law requiring women to affirmatively say they want sex before sleeping with men (or, I guess, other women?). If they don't, and they later decide they didn't enjoy the sex, they can have the man arrested for rape. This is what Columbia University Mattress Girl tried to do. Several months after having anal sex she decided she didn't enjoy it (I personally would have decided that much more quickly) and she tried to get her boyfriend arrested for rape. When the police laughed her off, she started carrying around a mattress and making porno videos in protest.

Illegal Alien shooter blames sea lions, self-aware gun for S.F. killing


One of the great things about America is that a person accused of a crime is presumed innocent before being proven guilty. No matter how many witnesses saw Francisco Sanchez gun down 32 year old Kathryn Steinle near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, he still has the presumption of innocence.
