14. How did FDR get the legislation he wanted passed to go

Through Congress?

The man took to the bully pulpit, utilizing the new medium of th radio, and he urged his constituents and fellow citizens to let their legislators know that what needed to be done had to be done.

FDR insisted that Congress face a "100 day deal" wherein every single day of the fist 100 days of their meetings, the Congress was effectively forced to deal with elements relating to the financial situation.

Now since Obama had already delegated the economy over to Geithner, he really had no excuse whatsoever not to follow FDR's lead.

He certainly had plenty of time on his hands.

but he claimed that he couldn't do a thing, not even mention to Congress his enthusiasm for the public option, as he "knew" that doing so meant that he was opposing the Constitution and ignoring the separation of powers.

Notice how obama totally does as he wants, with regards to separation of powers, when it suits him.The One Percent need the Bush cuts tobe extended. Obama complies willingly, while Congress is out to recess. (Forget if that happened in 2009 or 2010.)

Obama wants his Puppet Masters to have the new war in Syria, so he immediately takes to the bully pulpit and addresses the American public on TV, telling us how necessary the war in Syria is. (Summer of 2013.) No concern at all about the fact that the US Constitution states that Congress should handle war matters. Unfortunately, the war-weary public only offers some 17% support. But this does show that he knows how to make a plea for something any time that he really wants it.
