Once again, Mr Obama ruling by fiat

Obama Imperial Congress Won't ActAs far as Mr Obama is concerned, who needs Congress?  He certainly doesn’t.

Behind Closed Doors, Obama Crafts Executive Actions

WASHINGTON — When President Obama announced in June that he planned to bypass congressional gridlock and overhaul the nation’s immigration system on his own, he did so in a most public way: a speech in the White House Rose Garden.

Since then, the process of drafting what will likely be the only significant immigration changes of his presidency — and his most consequential use of executive power — has been conducted almost entirely behind closed doors, where lobbyists and interest groups invited to the White House are making their case out of public view.

Mr. Obama’s increasingly expansive appetite for the use of unilateral action on issues including immigration, tax policy and gay rights has emboldened activists and businesses to flock to the administration with their policy wish lists.

It also has opened the president, already facing charges of executive overreach, to criticism that he is presiding over opaque policy-making, with the potential to reward political backers at the expense of other interests, including some on the losing side who are threatening to sue.

“Opaque policy-making” from the individual who swore to make his administration the most transparent in history?

On that note of “transparency,” the Washington Times writes:

Obama admin thwarting release of public data under FOIA, lawsuit charges

by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro

The administration that vowed to be the most transparent in history now must defend itself against a federal lawsuit accusing it of thwarting the release of public information. It’s a case that could reveal just how much politics influences the processing of Freedom of Information Act requests, especially when such releases could embarrass the president.

The civic watchdog group Cause of Action on Monday sued the Obama administration, claiming that presidential attorneys have interfered improperly in the release of public documents under the landmark FOIA law in an effort to curb the release of derogatory information about the White House.

This is the most opaque administration in years and the American Media Maggots, like the boot-licking pussies they are, continue to go to great lengths to cover up Mr Obama’s crap in the cat box.

The problem is, it still smells.

I guess they’ll have to resort to clothes-pins next.

Liberals starting to jump the capsizing Obama Ship of State?

Chuck Todd on MSNBC’s Morning Joe said:

“This poll is a disaster for the president.  You look at the presidency here: Lowest job rating, tied for the lowest; lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina.  On the issue of do you believe he can still lead? A majority believe no. Essentially the public is saying your presidency is over.”

As the Cheneys wrote in the Wall Street Journal this week, “rarely has a US president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”

Are the rats starting to flee Obama’s sinking Ship of State?

Dianne Feinstein: not singing Mr Obama’s song

No Evidence of ‘Credible Threat’ to Bergdahl: Feinstein

by Kathleen Hunter

The Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman said she’s not convinced there was a “credible threat” against the life of freed Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl that motivated the White House to keep its plans secret.

“I don’t think there was a credible threat,” U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein said in an interview yesterday for Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend. “I have no information that there was.”

Translated: Mr Obama and Susan Rice and the Obama Administration continue to LIE.

Mr Obama has so pissed off some segments of the Demorats that even they are tired of the air escaping his mouth exhaust orifice.

More clear fodder for the phrase Liar In Chief.
