Recent comments to "Making a Blessing When Seeing Obama"

Is the President really the Highest Ranking authority? What about the Judicial and Legislative branches of government?

By Sender on 2009 01 28

He can be impeached, but he makes judicial appointments, and can sign or veto any bill passed by the legislative branch.

By TorahLab on 2009 01 29

but any Presidential veto can be overturned by the Congress.

Also, if the criteria is that the person can determine if a person is killed by the judicial system or not, than each of the Governors in the USA would have the bracha said when encountered. I have never heard of any posek ruling such.
