But when Congress refuses to act, and as a result, hurts our economy and puts our people at risk, then I have an obligation as President to do what I can without them.

All hail the king!!!
Whats next? Is Obama gonna run white farmers off their land?
Fine, but Constitutionally, that's not much.
Too bad that doesn't mean much to him.
so has anyone asked him about that wacky oath of office he took where he swore to uphold the constitution?
He has no clue...or maybe he does!
No, a$$hole, you have an obligation to “uphold, protect and defend the Constitution.”
If George Washington had known it was going to end up like this, he might have just stayed on his farm in Virginia and paid King George whatever he asked for in taxes.
congress couldn’t have refused to act. congress was in recess. idiot.
Congress IS ACTING! They are telling you NO!
That does not mean you can go around them because you want a YES
Some think Obama is Mau Mau but he’s actually pure Mao Mao.
He saw it as a 'charter of negative rights', things the government could not do. He was interested in forming a 'charter of positive rights' - things that 'governement was obligated to do'.
A huge red flag for those who were paying attention. There are just too damn many really, I mean really, dumb people in America.
The importance of proofreading for the maker of the graphic.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Obama is edging towards dictatorship and civil war. I have written extensively about how we are already in Civil War II. “Surviving Civil War II: Preparing For Economic, Social & Political Collapse”.
It won’t look like Civil War I because a new territory is the Internet, and Obama is using proxy armies (illegals, unions, OWS). But it will still be over slavery, in this case the indentured debt slavery of future generations.
Heil Obama!! It worked in Germany in the 30’s so why not in America in 2012. Strong Dem Leadership.
But we have the Republican Pussycat Party on our side so we should be OK.
Obama should bear in mind this is how Mubarak started his fall from power. Power corrupts and gathering too much of it to himself will bring on an American Spring.
Hussein has an ‘obligation’...to whom?
“But when Congress refuses to act...............”
Liberal Fascism is definitely on the rise as predicted:
Thanks for linking that timely article.
No Mr. Kenyan, you have an obligation to uphold your oath to our Constitution. PERIOD!
If you won’t do that then the appropriate steps should be taken and should lead to your impeachment. At least in the House.
Impeach this wannbe dictator, you sissy ass republicans.
Yeah, Boner, I mean you, you useless trash.
Does that mean we can rape hot reporters in the streets just like the mooslimes?
It all boils down to willful ignorance from intellectual laziness and that's causing otherwise good people to lose their country.
It amazes me how ignorant people are about civics, govt and politics these days.
This is disgusting and they don’t even bother hiding their disdain or ignorance to the constitution they openly admit now that they want a dictatorship.
They have the school, colleges, most shrinks and most importantly they control the message, the MSM.
Put on girlie men, fairy men, left wing women on morning shows like the today show.
Get the so called news outlets and depts filled with socialists and communists and bingo the sheep of the country just sit there and follow.
THIS IS FRIGGING OUTRAGEOUS
These cowards in the GOP need to grow a set and take the media head on and call them out today, get on their channels and demand they tell the truth, then go right to the white house and demand this crap stops and defund
Yep, that's part of the "I have and obligation as a husband and a father to do what I can without the banks."
OBAMA: Yes. [Applause] Let me just explain for those who are unfamiliar with this issue. You know, weve got a government designed by the founders so that thered be checks and balances. You dont want a President thats too powerful or a Congress thats too powerful or courts that are too powerful. Everybodys got their own role. Congress job is to pass legislation. The President can veto it, or he can sign it.
But what George Bush has been trying to do is part of his effort to accumulate more power in the Presidency, is, hes been saying, Well, I can basically change what Congress passed by attaching a letter that says I dont agree with this part or I dont agree with that part. Im going to choose to interpret it this way or that way. Uh, thats not part of his power.
But this is part of the whole theory of George Bush that he can make laws as hes going along. I disagree with that. I taught the Constitution for ten years, I believe in the Constitution, and I will obey the Constitution of the United States. Were not going to use signing statements as a way of doing an end run around Congress."
don’t think the MSM will ask him about the constitution or demand that he uphold the constitution, instead tonight the MSM will twist this and say he had to do this because those racist hate filled nazi republicans won’t let him do anything.
screw the branches of Govt the left and the MSM say but imagine if a republican President did half of what this dictator has.
NAIL ON HEAD
Congress is acting and saying no but the left seem to think that they should always get what they want and to hell with the congress, the constitution and the balance of powers.
See when a President in America wants to get things done he works with the other side and then on agreement gets things done.
When a dictator wants things done he by passes laws, makes up new laws and to hell with the old laws.
Yes zero, MSM and you in the socialist power.
You are now wanting a dictatorship but what happens if you lose this year, how would you feel if a Republican had done all of this and said to hell with Pelosi etc?
Exactly the left and the MSM would be outraged and it shows how the left are,. Little bratty kids stamping their feet wanting their own way.
have you seen this happening already?
Which oath, the one Roberts muffed in public, or the one that he took out of mike range privately without the Bible?
I said before this man took office, he intended to be president for life, we shall see. If his latest scam to give people homes works out, we are done, as a Republic.
Unfortunately, no one has the courage to pay the would-be-King a visit and tell him that his ass will be impeached for violating his sworn oath to uphold the Constitution if he does not rescind his unconstitutional appointments. Now. No quarter, no compromise.
there are still questions by some of us as to why zero did another oath or so called oath after the ceremony.
The MSM LOL yea they are called that but more like the left wing propaganda wing thinks some of us have short memories, not so.
Impeach this dictator. Congress is doing something they are saying no you ass wipe.
Then if Congress won't impeach him, he has an obligation to resign.
Well, then, shut down Congress if they are not needed to provide a balance to obamma’s antics!
Hey Bambi, where did it say that in the oath of office you took? So help you God!
go on the TV channels call them out to their bias and demand they tell the truth , then close DC down until this dictator is either impeached of which he won’t or remove all of this crap he has done.
no you don;t have an obligation at all , you go to congress and get approval and if they say no then so be it.
You don’t go and make up new Deps, appoint people and then go to a high school when kids are supposed to be learning and then tell these people you don’;t need congress.
What is scary is how the people in that crowd actually clapped and cheered.
Then some wonder why the constitution is not taught in schools but now in CA homosexuality will be.
I’d like to see a campaign ad which shows:
(1) an image of “Captain Zero” swearing to support the Constitution at his inauguration and then
(2) an image of “Captain Zero” laughing his ass off.
(3) while these two videos cycle through again and again, a list of the un-Constitutional things “Captain Zero” has done crawls into view.
Chavez felt the same way.
This is good news, just so we’re all clear. Congress is filled with Liberal Democrats and Moderate Demcorats and RINOs and Conservative and Moderate Republicans and it is in their human nature to want to be able to excerise the pwoer they have jsut as much as Obama does. Even the most liberal elements of Congress are not gonna be alright with Obama claiming he can make orders without them. His job is to execute THEIR orders. Period. And I would imagine if Obama keeps this up they will take advantage of the power balance we have to do something. They will pass veto-proof laws limiting his power, they will repeal laws than can and have been abused by Obama to expand his power beyond what the law of the land permits. And the SCOTUS judges will probably not accept for a microsecond Obama telling them from now on only he decides if his actions are Constitutional. Especially since 5 of the 9 are still right leaning and havent made plans to retire within the next few years-SCOTUS judges have served until they’re 82 or even 90 years old. ANd even among liberal judges, I reckon its the same. For instance, I doubt Clinton nominated Ginsburg, who plans to stay until 2015, would feel any need to fall in line with Obama every time a case is brought to SCOTUS-and if Obama goes much further in acting outside the Constitution the cases will be brought forward.
This isnt the Weimar Republic, which was a joke of a govt system to begin with and never had any real respect from the people from its inception. And even overthrowing the laughably weak Weimar Republic was not something Hitler could do without German people by and large getting behind him and wholeheartedly getting behind his genocidal policies This is a 200+ year old established govt system that has been honored by its people as their system of govt, and the best one there ever was. For Obama to ruin it in 4 or even 8 years would be possibly only if Americans collectively abandon their human nature to defend themselves on a fundamnetal scare. I do worry it can happen, quite a bit actually, but have faith it can be stopped.
What goes around comes around. Obamy will rot in hell!
baraq’s oath didn’t count.
He wasn’t asked to say “so help me allah”.
At times like these, Congresman Billy Bob is very sorely missed.
