If they overreach, they won’t even have the votes in the senate
Obama wants to lose in the House. This is only the start with immigration amnesty, more tax hikes, etc. to paint the House as against the will of the people and run for a democrat House 2014 where he can pass his radical agenda.
That's why God created Executive Orders.
Did you think Obama would get Obamacare passed? He did.
Did you think Obama would get Obamacare past the Supreme Court? He did.
Did you think Obama would get re-elected with the sorry state of the economy? He did.
It makes absolutely no difference what has happened historically. It makes absolutely no difference what used to be common knowledge. It makes absolutely no difference what used to be impossible.
With Obama, all bets are off.
We dismiss his efforts and underestimate him at our peril.
It's not congressional action we need to be concerned about in the short term. Obozo knows full well radical gun control, national registration and so forth stand little chance of making it through the house.
Furthermore, he's also aware of how slow the process can be with stiff opposition.
I think executive action is his lil surprise for America. Not sure the details, but what's to stop him from signing an executive order halting the sale of weapons/mags and instituting a national registry?
Someone smarter than me can probably share. I just take stock in Obozo’s comments after Conn. shooting. I will use all the power of my office...
Paraphrasing, but when he said, “the full power of his office” tells me executive action.
