Barack Obama, The Imperial President: Who Needs Congress as He Threatens Executive Orders, “I’ve Got a Pen and I’ve Got a Phone”
WHO NEEDS CONGRESS SAYS EMPEROR OBAMA: Once again Barack Obama could care less that there is a little thing called a US Constitution or a provision called separation of powers. America, Barack Obama is the president that the Founding Father’s feared when they created a checks and balance of federal powers.
Sadly, it looks like it is going to be more of the same from Barack Obama in 2014 and the remainder of his second term as president. Obama said that he looked forward to working with Democrats and Republicans. Yeah right, because he has done such a great job working with the GOP in the first 5 years of his administration. There is that little thing called Obamacare that was passed by “ZERO” Republicans in the House or Senate. How’s that working out for you America? Now Obama says in 2014 will be a “year of action” and that he has a pen and a phone. This is a direct reference that he will use executive orders to circumvent the Congressional process of passing laws. 2014 will not be a year of change, it will be the final year that Obama and liberal Democrats can further devastate America before they are slapped down in the midterm elections.
President Barack Obama’s path around Congress will be a pen and phone, he said in remarks before a cabinet meeting Tuesday, affirming his ability to take executive action when Congress blocks his legislative goals.
“So Congress is going to be busy, and I’m looking forward to working with Democrats and Republicans, House members and Senate members, to try to continue to advance the economic recovery and to provide additional ladders of opportunity for everybody,” Obama said. “But one of the things that I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.”
Barack Obama is incapable of communicating with others or presenting his views to Republicans, let alone the Democrats. Now that he is a lame duck president with an approval rating in the low, low 40′s he is toxic and even Democrats will most likely not support his agenda for fear of losing their elections in 2014. Barack Obama thinks he can do anything he damn well pleases and could care less about America, its laws, its political processes or the US Constitution.
