I know I need to tread very lightly when it comes to this topic about Cam, but if Gman really feels Cam just isn't quite worth 130-150 mill and Cam doesn't budge on his price then let's just say, I trust Gettleman and fully support his decision
I don't trust the decision making ability of the librarian that keeps letting have access to the Internet.
Why would the President want to work with a Congress whose stated goal, and proven intent over 6 years, is to just block everything said President tries to do? After 6 years of it he had 2 choices: don't do anything or do what he can. If you were the lawfully elected leader of the free world which course would you take?
As the President you have to rise above the childishness of anything and everything that exists in the realm of politics.
Leaders carry the torch of their organization and the rules/laws/processes/etc that that organization is founded upon.
Circumventing said processes devalues them and the organization.
