Posted on 02/13/2010 10:45:10 AM PST by NoRedTape
We are reviewing a list of presidential executive orders and directives to get the job done across a front of issues, said Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff.
Any president has vast authority to influence policy even without legislation, through executive orders, agency rule-making and administrative fiat. And Mr. Obamas success this week in pressuring the Senate to confirm 27 nominations by threatening to use his recess appointment power demonstrated that executive authority can also be leveraged to force action by Congress.
If the stalling tactics continue, said Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, hes not ruling out using recess appointments for anybody that hes nominated......"

Where are the screaming Lefties now about the abuse of power they railed about for 8 years?
WHERE ARE THE WIMPY CHECKS AND BALANCES?
This is the indication on the things to come.
“Get the job done...”
You WILL be deposed and your liberalism will be rejected and crushed. Liberty is still the driving force of the PEOPLE!
We will hold you and your thieves accountable for the costs of your ruse.
The only way to stop this is via some sort of a major assertion of states’ rights. KKKlinton got away with this *** for eight years, “stroke of the pen, law of the land”, and then George W. Bush let every bit of that crap stand. Our next pubby president simply has to be somebody willing to undue past damage.
.....don't worry Rahm will take care of whatever oBama needs to sign. Don't worry about a thing!
(please help us God)
Those evil Republicans are preventing this country from rushing headlong into communism, and the One is mad. He’ll do whatever he can to take us there, and the Constitution be damned.
He is an unconstitutional president, he isn’t bound by the constitution. Don’t wonder for an instant why he is ignoring it.
It's grown quite old to point out instances of Obama violating the Constitution. Or is that one the executive orders he's going to sign...to dissolve the Constitution. He already has complained about it getting in his way.
Contrary to what his dreams of made of; we do not yet have. . .'Obama the Great'; nor, by our best efforts; will we.
Win the House and defund the Executive Branch.
Yes, its the slippery slope. Starts with appointments and then morphs into a full fledged power grab. Thomas Jefferson would be horrified.
"Stroke of the pen. Law of the Land. Kinda cool. "

Time for the Spirit of 1776 to come alive again...
“Our next pubby president simply has to be somebody willing to undue past damage.”
And hopefully have the courage and conviction to openly run on it.
What if the punk signs an executive order and nobody obeys it?
Constitutionally, Executive Orders apply to ONE branch of the government: The Executive Branch.
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A DOUBT IN MY MIND JUST WHAT OBAMA IS AND WHAT HE IS DELIBERATELY DOING. BUT A PRESIDENT IS NOW PERMITTED TO COMMIT TREASON WITH NO OPPOSITION?
He doesn’t need to be impeached if he is unconstitutional. He should be arrested. Orange jumpsuit.
Bambi’s best bet is to resign and beg Biden for a pardon.
