Green Backs Good Ideas

Recently, much has been made of Congressman Green's voting record - "Green back Bush on 90% of votes". Yes? And what's your point? Is there a problem with supporting GOOD ideas? Why don't they say more about the 10% he didn't agree with the President? Here's another thing the Democrats don't seem to know, but which someone should educate them on:
Article II - Section 3. He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.
See? The Constitution of the United States doesn't give the PROTUS the power to make laws. He can propose things he thinks are important, but Congress has the power to make the laws. When they stopped teaching classes on government in school?
