On the heels of Tuesday’s state of the union speech, Obama has this planned:
An out and out diktat. Mixed liberally with insanity.
Obama’s Chief Of Staff Just Made Horrifying Revelation About Obama’s ‘Audacious’ Final Plans
by Warner Todd Huston
“,,, (isn’t) constrained by law, Congress, or the Constitution.”
While President Obama’s frequent use of executive orders to implement his policies has angered many Republicans, his chief of staff is warning Obama has even bigger plans to enact policies without involving Congress.
White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough had a warning for the nation — in his final year in office, Obama will indulge in “audacious executive action.”
McDonough issued his warning during a breakfast with reporters in Washington D.C., in response to a question about what the president meant when he said he would “go it alone” if Congress wouldn’t back him.
This is bare naked despotism. Obama operates like a dictator because there is no one to oppose him. While people speak words, Obama takes imperial actions via his Executive Orders. He answers words with actions.
Yes, prior presidents have issued executive orders, but not on the massive scale and wide-ranging influence of Obama’s.
“Audacious executive action” indeed.
Meaning: Obama will continue to ignore an entire THIRD of the US government as though it doesn’t exist, simply for his own benefit.
According to National Review, McDonough replied, “We’ll do audacious executive action over the course of the rest of the year, I’m confident of that.” McDonough also said Obama and his team would endeavor to make sure his EOs couldn’t be “undone” by Congress at a later date.
“Couldn’t be undone by Congress.” Because he is stepping over and completely ignoring Congress.
But McDonough hinted that Obama wasn’t going to be constrained by law, Congress, or the Constitution. “McDonough said the White House is considering executive action on any and all issues,” the magazine reported. “And the main question President Obama plans to ask himself is ‘Why not?’”
Yes, why not? Just whom is stepping up to stop Mr Obama? Do we even hear anyone in the GOP stridently excoriating Obama over his past actions and these future plans? It’s not as if Obama is keeping this scheme secret.
This is a raw hijacking, wholesale, of the American government. Mr Obama will not be constrained by LAW or the CONGRESS or the CONSTITUTION.
With Obama his diktats involve all-reaching content.
However, as David Harsanyi notes, it isn’t the number of EOs, but rather what is contained in them, that is cause for concern. Harsanyi says Obama has perpetrated the worst overreach of any executive in history and his EOs have been aimed at far reaching and substantive changes in the American way of life.
Mr Obama knows he’s a lame duck and finds himself totally unopposed. Why wouldn’t he continue as American Dictator?
Even Leftist Bill Maher knows a dictator when he sees one.
Bill Maher said on his blog today that liberals should be pretty wary of President Obama‘s use of executive orders, because one day a president they don’t like will do it and they won’t like the results.
One thing you can count on, though: it won’t be a Republican who repeats Obama’s abuse of EOs. They wouldn’t have the guts or the intelligence.
