Obama believes that he no longer needs Congress to promote his agenda, he will bypass them and use executive orders … isn’t this called tyranny? Didn’t we fight a Revolutionary war to rid ourselves of a king?
Leaving behind a year of bruising legislative battles, President Barack Obama enters his fourth year in office having calculated that he no longer needs Congress to promote his agenda and may even benefit in his re-election campaign if lawmakers accomplish little in 2012.
Absent any major policy pushes, much of the year will focus on winning a second term. The president will keep up a robust domestic travel schedule and aggressive campaign fundraising and use executive action to try to boost the economy.
Aides say the president will not turn his back on Congress completely in the new year. He is expected to once again push lawmakers to pass elements of his jobs bill that were blocked by Republicans last fall.
If those efforts fail, the White House says, Obama’s re-election year will focus almost exclusively on executive action.
Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign strategy will be to run against Congress. What else can Obama do, he certainly cannot run on his failed economic record, unemployment, out of control debt, record number of individuals on food stamps and Obamacare. Obama has been a complete failure which is the reason why his job approval rating is a low 43%.
UPDATE I: As reported at NewsBusters, the liberal, establishment MSM has no problem with Barack Obama’s Strategy of Virtually All Campaigning, All Executive Branch Overreach All the Time. Welcome to the state run media approved Obama “imperial” Presidency.
