"A feeble executive implies a feeble execution of the government. A feeble execution is but another phrase for a bad execution; and a government ill executed, whatever may be its theory, must be, in practice, a bad government."

Alexander Hamilton
(1757-1804) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury

Reader comments about this quote:
The executive branch is apply named because it executes the legislation of the legislators. Kinda sorta a 'dah' statement but, is very accurate. Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin's tenure is proof positive of how the simplest saying can be the most accurate.

    The Executive Branch is popularly misunderstood -- it is Congress that makes the laws and declares war, the Executive MUST administer the laws, not change them or make law through executive orders. Obama was not only weak but also willfully ignorant in this regard.
