Obama uses executive orders as a political tool
CNN ^ | Nov. 1, 2011 | Tom Cohen

Posted on 11/01/2011 8:38:37 PM PDT by Innovative

President Barack Obama is crafting his own laws of political physics these days, insisting that inaction by a divided Congress requires White House action in order to get something done.

A campaign labeled "We Can't Wait" pushes unilateral directives and programs from the White House as the only way to push ahead on the president's agenda when a do-nothing Congress fails to act.

If he needs a catchy name for this form of government, I would suggest "scientific socialism".

Well, we know what happened to one king who thought he could trample on his "subjects"

Payback is a b!tch.

This from CNN? Something weird is up on the left. They are putting up an “diss Obama” front. I’ve seen other signs. Beware.

Obama is going to try to accomplish the rest of his “goals” in office (his leftist agenda that is unfinished) before he loses in 2012. He knows the odds are high that he will lose, and now, with a split Congress he can’t accomplish the rest of his agenda unless he does it by fiat, using his executive order pen. And so he will. Let’s see what the Pubs do to stop him, if anything can be done.

CNN's been coming down on Obamarx for a while now. Most of them are Hitlery supporters so this doesn't really surprise me. They've only carried BHO's water this long simply because he's a Dem. But he's botched everything so badly, they're now turning on him.

Someone as poorly educated and egotistical as Jugears should be briefed on the fact that Louis XVI could have been buried in two different sized boxes. He also thought he could side step the Will of the People. Chewy the WideLoad might also be reminded about Louis’ wife...

The Republican candidate will have a long list of E.O.’s to cancel and campaign on/against.

He is more powerful than a King because we allow him to be. Cain may give the c**t another four years! (Pardon my language but I hate what the guy is doing to us.)

Where is the GOP? They control the House and defund any of Obama’s illegal KING-LIKE activities.

Come out from under your desks, and hold a press conference and tell the people what your plan is to stop this, and to impeach Holder.

I fear it is only the Senate that can stop Obamao and Reid, the incompetent, is in charge there. Obama is now just a dictator. He must be stopped but who will do it?

This helps make sense of Reid not bringing legislation from the House up for a vote. Lays the groundwork for Obama’s “We Can’t Wait” campaign.

Go here, http://users.sisqtel.net/armstrng/agenda21.htm about half way down the page and you can see how this dictator is forcing his agenda administratively on the American people. It gets worse and the pace faster every week. If the Republicans can’t see how he is shredding the Constitution and any semblance of a representative government in Congress, then they are either blind or bought and paid for. I mean it, this is alarming to the max. Everyone who reads it should have the hairs raise on the back of their necks.

I thought Boehner was quoted as saying a couple of things this week. One thing he said, was that they are keeping a sharp eye on what the White House is doing, saying that it must comply with the Constitution. The other was that so far what he is doing is going to go absolutely no where, and that funding would never be placed anywhere near any of Obama’s hair brained ideas apparently.

I believe Democrats have tired of Obama. Heck, their own families are now out of work, and certainly ALL of their consituents. The only democrats employed are in congress, media, or government employed. With government failing daily, democrats have to look at Republican Romney as being the only source for hope and the least offensive threat to socialism, so they seem to be publically dumping Obama. He is toast.

Besides, he's ruining their pension funds...:^)

At least they went up when the blue dress stainer was in power. /S

Correction: Obama, a political tool, uses executive orders.
