Skip to comments.Obama: Republican Efforts to Stop 'Imperial Presidency' Not 'Serious'
Posted on 02/01/2014 9:34:03 AM PST by Sir Napsalot
During an a preview portion of Jake Tapper's exclusive interview with President Barack Obama, the president downplayed both Ted Cruz and House GOP efforts to stop his so-called executive order power grab:
Weve been very disciplined and sparing in terms of the executive actions that we have taken," Obama said. "I think its a tough argument for the other side to make .....

The proper response to El Bozo’s bluff is, “See you in court.” Let’s see who has the courage and the sense of duty to all those soldiers who have died for our freedom to fight this take over of America by Communists in our government.
Just see my tag line as to why this is.
Of course not...the RINO’s are PART of the “imperial presidency”....it’s the pesky Tea Party he’s got to be worried about.
Steve Stockman has the proper response. He’s thinking of introducing Articles of Impeachment.
He has turned out more EO’s than anyone in history, rules by them, ignores congress and uses them, and he says he uses them sparingly????
The Ruling Class vs. the Working Class. That’s what this is about.
More than half of Congress needs impeaching! Or removing.
For me the key point is its deliberate.
That’s what this one is counting on. theOne anticipates regular routes through the courts will take years. All the while, the dictatorial edicts will mount, unimpeded.
It's not the other side making the argument, it's Nat Henthoff and Jonathan Turley who are joining the argument:"Even with this ample allowance, however, I believe that President Barack Obama has crossed the constitutional line between discretionary enforcement and defiance of federal law."
How about the executive orders that aren’t talmed about.i.e. Fast and Furious, the ongoing I.R.S. targeting, EPA, and on and on.................
“More than half of Congress needs impeaching! Or removing”
I’ll second that emotion. :-)
EOs are a natural extention of outfits lie the IRS and EPA. Get rid of government funding of extra judicial charities too, like ACLU etc...
This country is so far off the Constitution, I cannot tke seriously anyone in courts or wherever. The historicisms and history revisionisms are legion of legal fantasies foisted on a crashing freedom economy.
Everybody makes noises, but nobody makes good on the consequences. It’s like the parents of a spoiled brat who gets away with murder. It’s not going to end well for anyone & it’s going to be hell in the meantime.
X3 Impeach/ remove. Enough.
“Steve Stockman has the proper response. Hes thinking of introducing Articles of Impeachment.”
Thinking.....hmmm....I think Obama is right....none of the Republicans...including Stockman are serious. It’s all talk and posturing.
Time to shut up and do something.
That statement alone shows that is exactly what he's up to. One wouldn't say that if that isn't exactly what they're doing.
Again, upcoming presidential candidates must absolutely be asked if they are willing to work with congress to *reduce* the unconstitutional powers assumed by the office of the president over time.
If they blather something to the effect that they think *they* can use that unconstitutional power wisely, then they are not suitable for the office. They must be crystal clear that the office of the president has become too dictatorial and too powerful, so is out of balance.

Did the “Reporter” respond by listing the number of EO’s Obama has decreed versus the numbers his Predecessors issued?
Wouldn’t that have made an appropriate follow up question?
Well its not like they would really be able to impeach the POS but the GOP leadership should still openly threaten it. They won’t even do that.
Every Conservative Candidate running in Primaries this Spring, should use the clip of Obama’s SOTU Address where he told Congress that he will by-pass them if they don’t give him is way. He will be defying the Constitution and the will of the people. And, they should let people know that their RINO opponent will let Obama get away with it. Any candidate who does not get their bang for their buck out of that is stupid.
