Mass tyranny and dictatorship???
If the shoe fits...
And such sentiments are in the forefront of the concerns of elected US politicians as well. Pretty clearly President Obama is “cynically and systematically using his position as President to lead the country.” God forbid, eh?
Oh yeah and what is Obama facing according to a Republican Texas Congressman - impeachment and/or deportation because ya know he was not born in the US of A and his birth certificate is fake, eh?
Responding to reports that President Obama is considering signing as many as nineteen executive orders on gun control, Republicans in Congress unleashed a blistering attack on him today, accusing Mr. Obama of “cynically and systematically using his position as President to lead the country.”
Spearheading the offensive was Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who charged the President with the “wanton exploitation of powers that are legally granted to him under the U.S. Constitution.”
Calling him the “Law Professor-in-Chief,” Rep. Stockman accused Mr. Obama of “manipulating a little-known section of the Constitution,” Article II, which outlines the power of the President. (my note the Law Professor-in-Chief crack was first used by Sarah Palin for which she was roundly ripped.)
“President Obama looks down the list of all of the powers that are legally his and he’s like a kid in a candy store,” Rep. Stockman said. “It’s nauseating.”
The Texas congressman said that if Mr. Obama persists in executing the office of the Presidency as defined by the Constitution, he could face “impeachment and/or deportation.”
Noting that the President has not yet signed the executive orders on gun control, Rep. Stockman said that he hoped his stern words would serve as a wake-up call to Mr. Obama: “Mr. President, there’s still time for you to get in line. But if you continue to fulfill the duties of President of the United States that are expressly permitted in the Constitution, you are playing with fire.”
