Obama Didnít Consult WH Lawyers When Delaying Employer Mandate

If Nixon had tried something like this, he would have rightly been branded a “rogue president.”

Jackie Calmes, a first-class political reporter working for the New York Times, actually had the gall to ask the president if he had consulted White House lawyers on the constitutionality of unilaterally delaying the employer mandate in Obamacare.

Obama’s answer would have been worthy of King George, or perhaps a meglomaniacal dictator — not a servant of the people in a great republic.

‘What difference does it make’, the pirate Roberts has placed the illicit stamp of the subpreme court approval on the whole scam. Little barry bastard boy no longer has to worry about the Constitution getting in his way ...

Obama doesn't think he is above the law, he thinks he is the law.

God Almighty I can’t believe this thug has three more years to destroy America, he’s already brought her to her knees, and this Congress mewls about illegal immigrants while running to have dinner with the thug.

Of course he didn't.

He won.

Obama claims the Constitution was written in cursive, therefore is a racist document.

“I’m not concerned about their opinions,” the president said. “Very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers.”

Really? In the current 113th Congress, 157 Representatives are lawyers and 55 Senators are lawyers. That means 40% of them are lawyers, That's quite a lot more than "very few". Obama lies, again.

Why doesn’t Obama just “suspend” all social security and medicare benefits for one year, while continuing to collect the taxes? He could then (truthfully) claim he balanced the budget.

It's ok. It's all legal. B0 says so.

After all, B0 is a brilliant lawyer and a constitutional law professor.

Except that he's unlicensed, so he's not really a lawyer. And he never was really an actual professor or constitution scholar.
But otherwise, did we say “brilliant?”

Obama doesn't think he is above the law, he thinks he is the law.

You beat me to it, oldbrowser. As history will clearly demonstrate in due time, he wasn't the law, but a very small man with a very large ego who's memorable for the horrors he inflicted upon his nation.

Obama doesn't think he is above the law, he thinks he is the law.

When his will becomes law then he is a dictator even if everyone thinks we are a free country.

The will of the prince becomes law.

Clinton pared it down to two letters with the meaning of “is”.

Obama has done the ultimate with just “I”.

Dictators don’t need to consult anybody when making edicts. Just make his announcement and move on. You either follou it or die.

At that point, Obama explained that if Congress doesn’t like what he’s done, then lawmakers can try to do something about it. “I’m not concerned about their opinions,” the president said. “Very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers.” And some Republicans “think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win [steal] the presidency. [twice.]

I was so happy to see that our brave band of emasculated GOP brothers got right on it!
