Here's Yer Clue, Mr. President
One of the truly magnificent - and presciently well-considered - aspects of the United States' Constitution is the fact that it SPECIFICALLY DELINEATES WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS ALLOWED TO DO.
Let me rephrase that for the historically-challenged "progressives" out there:
IT MEANS THAT "WE THE PEOPLE" TELL THE GOVERNMENT WHAT TO DO, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
It means that the punks who happen to be in charge - ANY punks at ANY given time, REGARDLESS of whatever crime gang...er, party affiliation - are accountable to the framework established over 200 years ago by the "right wing extremists" (Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, Adams, Hamilton, Payne, et al) who had just gotten finished fighting for and winning their freedom by slapping the snot outta what was the world's Superpower at that time (King George III).
To be even more specific, Mr. President, examine Article 2, Section II:
Section 2 - Civilian Power over Military, Cabinet, Pardon Power, Appointments
The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States.....
Perhaps, given the fact that you STILL haven't managed to get the Oath of Office right, you might want to READ the Constitution, Pharaoh barack.
It is NOT your job to take over car companies and fire executives.
It is NOT your job to trash the financial institutions and crash the world's economy.
It is NOT your job to take over the health care system the rest of the world envies.
It is NOT your job to "remake" America.
...and it is most certainly NOT YOUR JOB to attempt to pay off your political bosses - and simultaneously wasting a few thousand gallons of jet fuel, a few hundred man-hours of highly trained security personnel and staff, and a few million tax-payer dollars! - by playing the shill to get the Olympics for Chicago.
All of which merely brought even more disgrace on the office of the President of the United States of America when the International Olympic Committee told you to kiss THEIR asses instead of them kissing YOURS!
Um, remember that little matter of American men and women fighting the IslamoFascists in Afghanistan and Iraq?
...you might could check with that "typical white woman" who is supposedly "running" the State Department - she should be able to show you where those places are on a map.
It IS your job to "provide for the common defense", and that does NOT mean ordering the commanding general of A-Stan - whose job is far more important than your flying to Denmark for the IOC to publicly humiliate your sorry ass - to leave his troops just to meet you in Copenhagen!
Long story short, Pharaoh,
GET OVER YOUR-PATHETIC-SELF and DO YOUR F*CKING JOB!
...because far better men than you are paying the price for your indecisiveness and lack of leadership, while your worthless, sycophantic followers cover your ass and stroke your undeserved ego.
Act like a man - for once.
