46% Say Congress Should Be Able To Override Presidential Pardons
Forty-six percent (46%) of U.S. voters say Congress should be able to overturn
presidential pardons it thinks are unjustified, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Thirty-seven percent (37%) believe Congress should not have that power, and 18% are undecided.
I agree with this. If congress can override vetoes, why can't they override Presidential pardons? Whatever happened to there being justice in the system? There should be a limited amount of pardons from the President. People need to realize that there are consequences for their actions.
Seventy-four percent (74%) of U.S. voters continue to believe the federal government is not doing enough to secure the country's borders, even as President-elect Obama has named a new secretary of Homeland Security who is opposed to a border fence.I agree with this, too. Why are our politicians so afraid to do anything about illegal immigration? They seem to care more about some shithole in the middle east than what is going on in our own backyards. Something needs to be done about border security but no one wants to do anything. I assume its only gonna get worse with Janet Napolitano as Homeland Security Secretary. She hasn't done anything to curb illegal immigration here in Arizona. She even criticized Sheriff Joe Arpaio for doing his job of rounding up the illegals. We need more people like him in the system. If these illegal fucks don't want to immigrate to this country legally, then they shouldn't come at all. And if they do come, they should be deported A.S.A.P. Screw amnesty. I am sick of this country catering to everyone. Illegal immigrants have NO rights and they should be treated as such. Don't give me none of this human rights bullshit. If they want to come here, they should do it legally or face the consequences. I'm tired of this country giving the illegals a free ride.
Pennsylvania Senate: Specter 46% Matthews 43%I personally think Matthews should stick to his MSNBC show and leave the politics for the big boys. He does fine as a political commentator, so why the change?
Republican Senator Arlen Specter is potentially vulnerable in his 2010 bid for re-election. A Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Pennsylvania voters finds Specter leading MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews by just three percentage points, 46% to 43%, in a match-up that may foreshadow one of the nation's most closely-watched Senate races.
Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Minnesota voters now expect incumbent Republican Norm Coleman to beat Democrat Al Franken in the state’s U.S. Senate race, according to a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Minnesota taken Thursday night.I dont' really care who wins this one. Democrats have 58 seats in congress now? I think that's plenty. Who's to say they can't pick up a few moderate Republicans?
