Look it up. It is true. Does anyone really put that kind of slimy crap past Obama?! Be afraid; then get off your butt and start writing checks and letters.
CONGRESS regulates the Federal Courts. No President can change the number of seats on the Court. Period. Done. Thanks for playing.
And do date, Obama's extra/unConstitutional actions still poll badly. As would Reid trying to do the nuclear option with so many vulnerable Dems up in '14.
