"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
Federalist No. 70, 1788

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.

    Hamilton was a Jew bastard. Look it up. He was a mole and agent for the Crown in the City of London STATE. He conspired with Robert Morris and others to destroy the Continental Currency and foist the FIRST PRIVATE central bank masquerading as PUBLIC. The ominously named Bank of North America.

    When that abomination was revealed to have "an alarming amount of foreign ownership," and lost its charter. He conspired to replace the vastly superior Articles of Confederation with the CONstitution which led to (((them))) getting the MONEY POWER (as President Van Buren always wrote it) back, with the 2nd PRIVATELY held central bank masquerading as public, the First Bank of the United States.
