Obama: "Where Congress Is Not Willing To Act, We're Going To Go Ahead And Do It Ourselves"
RCP ^ | December 14, 2011 | KOAA-TV

Posted on 12/14/2011 11:43:04 AM PST by Cheerio

In an interview with KOAA-TV, a local news channel from Colorado Springs, Colorado, President Obama says if Congress is not willing to pass legislation he wants, he will do it himself in order to win another term. Read the transcript below.

Rob Quirk, KOAA-TV: "And one year from today we will know if this a one-term or two-term president. So, I asked the president what will it take from now until then to not only win Colorado again, but reelection as well."

So when will America get disgusted enough with this Obama to tell him never again?

Oh really? Who died and made him king? He’s such a piece of garbage. The republicans should be calling a joint press conference denouncing this.

Congress looking for who to blame? Look in the mirror you stupid efn *rseholes. 35 or 40 appointed Czars and you said nothing. You whimpered at the thought of the media not loving you if you said something.

I’m sure I can’t be the only one who has thought this but in a weird way ibama may have done more for conservatism than anyone in the history of America.
If we would get a small government President he can now say,”we really do not want to end the Dept of Ed or Dept of Enviro but we do not have a choice. We do not want to institute tough workfare laws but the last Admin left us no choice.”
Haha
Nice thought anyhow.

That's above my paygrade.

However, it's not above the paygrade of the "Chief Joints of Staff," as Rita X called them.

He’s threatened on at least one occaision to rule by Executive Order. Looks like that threat is becoming a promise.

And The Media will prostitute themselves before him for it.

I think they got in a really good batch of “Chief Joints of Staff” from the Coast guard and now they’re busy looking for the Doritos stash.

And before I’m accused of simply flogging the problem, the solution is to RE-ELECT ONLY those who pass Constitutional muster. Before you say “My guy’s doing a SWELL job,” check him out at http://www.gradegov.com/

“Obama: “Where Congress Is Not Willing To Act, We’re Going To Go Ahead And Do It Ourselves””

If the judicial and legislative branches are not willing to stop you, the people are going to go ahead and do it ourselves”.

That’s because Bonehead and Cantor would rather have a “campaign” issue, than actually confront Zero.

Where are the GOPers who should be calling for impeachment....or worse???

This fascist marxist scumbag has got to be stopped soon or there will be no real election process left in 2012 that will be able to remove him from the throne...

There is only one America.obama voters are not and never were Americans. They are in control now because more parasites, traitors, and American haters voted on November 4, 2008 than Americans did. Whether America can survive and thrive depends on the degree of sacrifice Americans are wiling to make. The answer, one way or the other, will come no later than 2013.

HEY CHAIRMAN OBAMA! YEAH YOU! When you say: “And where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves. “ that means that you are one or more of the following:

1.) A Dictator.

2.) A Vigilante.

3.) Guilty of Un-Constitutional actions while in office.

4.) Just another typical Democrat that doesn’t obey checks and balances.

BTW, any of the above 4 are grounds for Impeachment.

Your “Constipaper Toilet Tissue” would make a wonderful gift for every member of the US Congress. You see, Congress has been constipated for the last three years, that is they just can’t budget.

To help Congress, Enema Ben has been administrating Quantitative Easing in two large doses, but without noticeable results. The end solution certainly will be unpleasant.

We really can’t afford another year of this. We couldn’t afford the first three. He needs to be removed from power NOW, but there doesn’t seem to be any way to get that done.

Damn you, Congress...damn you to hell.

Impeach, impeach, impeach.

You people need to get off the impeachment kick. With the current makeup of the Senate, there is NO WAY IN HELL that that would ever happen. We are stuck with Chairman Zero until the next election, and even then it takes a 2/3 vote of the Senate to Impeach and there aren't enough Democrats up for re-election to make up the difference. We are stuck with the POS in Chief until January 2012 or longer guys, so cut the IMPEACH crap.

Cut the ignorance crap, the senate doesn’t impeach, the house does.

The senate’s job is to hold the trial, and you don’t know what they’ll do, because the Chief justice presides, not Harry Reid.
