Posted on 02/26/2012 10:43:19 AM PST by John Semmens
Citing what it called a key precedent recently established by a Georgia case, the Obama Administration declined to submit documents subpoenaed by the House Energy and Commerce Committee investigating the loss of over $500 million of taxpayers money on the Administrations Solyndra loan guarantee.
If you will recall, Press Secretary Jay Carney told Committee Chairman Representative Fred Upton (R-Mich), the Administrations refusal to provide documents or even to appear in answer to a subpoena was upheld by Judge Milihis decision in the Presidents favor.
Its a separation of powers issue, Carney explained. The president was independently elected by the American people. He is answerable only to the American people. No judge, no congressman, no one, has the standing to challenge anything he does unless he deigns to acquiesce in the inquiry. If Mr. Upton isnt satisfied he can try to convince his peers to use the only Constitutional option available to Congress and impeach the President. Then the President might respond.

The usurper knows that since he has some black genetics and has basically 98% unconditional support from the black segment, ain’t nothing going to be done to him, for fear of rioting reprisal.
These jackasses are not even pretending that they're not running a dictatorship here in the United States.
Geeez, everyone thought that Nixon was bad.. this guy is 1,000s of times worse!
LOL, you had me.
Oops! I got punked by the satire site!
Still, this administration really is behaving as a dictatorship.
I’ve got a better one than this, but the Secret Service would be at my door in seconds.
I’ll keep praying!
The House evidently likes what Zer0 is doing since they have voted FOR every "continuing resolution" since the R's took over in naught 10. They voted FOR every debt ceiling increase that Zer0 has wanted...they have denied him nothing....provided him everything he wants....
...so what gives anyone the idea that Zer0 has any respect or fear of Congress?
I have heard little whispers of contempt of Congress charges, but Zer0's contempt for this Congress is exceeded only by his arrogance and contempt for "We the People".....Zer0 has no fear and does not give a rat's ass what the Congress does, or what the People think.
Nothing will change until the House exercises their power and cut off funds for the administration...right down to gas for AF1...
We could release some limited edition impeachment sneakers! Oh wait.
