Obama: "I Cannot Just Impose My Will On Congress" Though "Sometimes I Wish I Could"
"I, as the president of the United States, make determinations that the military then carries out. Not the other way out. As president and commander in chief, I have that responsibility because I'm accountable to the people. Now on the other hand, as president, I cannot just impose my will on Congress -- the Congress of the United States -- even though sometimes I wish I could," President Obama said in an address in Burma this morning.
