Skip to comments.Live Thread: Obama On Television Asking for Sweeping Authority For Executive Branch
Posted on 01/13/2012 8:50:24 AM PST by truthkeeper
I am trying to work and listen at the same time, but is anybody else hearing this??
Obama is asking Congress to reinstate his Executive authority to streamline six agencies into one, so he could "help businesses grow, save businesses time, save businesses money."
He's making it sound like the best thing since sliced bread. News media is eating it up.
"Reform and remake our government so that it works. This should not be a partisan issue."
Sounds like Chavez not so long ago.
ENABLING ACT, Part Duex
Yeah, it happened this way in 1930’s Germany, too.
“Then your Demonrat controlled Senate can pass a budget for the first time in about 900 days”
Dictators don’ need no Stinkin BUDGET!
Just ask anyone who works for NBC News, they’ll tell ya!
I will buy McConnell and Boehner a clue and tell them to ask barry to put this request in a FY budget proposal. The GOP needs to damn him with faint praise but they don’t even have the stones to do that.
Once again the Pubbie Schmoos—Boehner and McConnell—have no clue. They allow the Usurping Marxist to coopt a conservative position. These two idiots are supremely stupid, in Onada’s pocket or some combination of the two.
IMHO, they’re more dangerous than Onada because they facilitate his Marxist policies. If they did the job they were sent to Washington to do, they could at least slow down Onada’s destruction of America as we knew it. I hope I never came face to face with these scum. It would be very difficult to project even the barest civiity toward them.
My immediate reaction is, look behind the headlines into the details, just like what was necessary with Obamacare. Being the liar and deceiver that he is, his public portrayal of the intent and goals is NEVER as he bills it.
The Constitution is very specific: the Obama's term of office ends on Jan 20, 2012. If no successor has been elected, then the office devolves to the Speaker of the House.
The Constitution is quite clear about the length of his term and it doesn't depend on someone else being elected or inaugurated. Barry's term will be up after four years.
If a Constitutional amendment were passed, perhaps it could be changed, but absent that--which ain't-a-gonna happen--he would (again) be acting as a willful violator (therefore traitor) to the Constitution.
No one beyond Sasha, Malia and Michelle would have proper reason to adhere to his words, orders or actions, and he would certainly be subject to arrest and imprisonment to await trial.
I have had enough Obama reforms to last me a life time.
We need a new reformer.
God deliver us from this megalomaniac before it’s too late and we lose America.
—The Constitution is very specific: the Obama’s term of office ends on Jan 20, 2012. If no successor has been elected, then the office devolves to the Speaker of the House.—
Yes, the constitution is very specific. It is also very specific about eligibility, but, there he is...
An absolute idiotic joke coming from dear leader pretending to want smaller govt—mugabe style politics in the remake. If obuttcare ever begins, people have no idea of the boondoggle monster this will be.
Kristallnacht as a turning point
Kristallnacht changed the nature of persecution from economic, political, and social to the physical with beatings, incarceration, and murder; the event is often referred to as the beginning of the Holocaust. In the words of historian Max Rein in 1988, "Kristallnacht came and everything was changed."
“Liberal-fascism” seems pretty relevant more than the old fashion totalitarianism .
The new one is probably more dangerous. It is for your good, for the people...believe in Him like J.Christ...
—Only this one will target conservatives and, yes, perhaps also Jews and evangelical Christians.—
History repeats, but never exactly the same. The Jews were notoriously passive. In the US, the conservatives are the citizens with most of the guns and the training and will to use them.
It would NOT be pretty.
Obama wants authority to do whatever he wants, and Congress has to veto him if congress doesn’t like it. Not the other way around.
What this means is that Obama is incapable of putting together a plan that he can sell to Congress on the merits.
This never gets old:
This is the same phony who has over 35+++ CZARS who are accountable to no one other than him?
He just added another couple of ‘agencies’ within the past month??
I don’t trust a word he says.
Every single member of his Administration is more skilled at lying than anything else. Including his Boxcar Butt ‘wife’.
