Posted on 01/14/2014 1:13:56 PM PST by Carbonsteel
WASHINGTON (CBS DC/AP) Calling for all hands on deck to assist the economy, President Barack Obama is urging his Cabinet to identify ways to keep his administration relevant to people struggling in the up-and-down recovery.
With two weeks left before delivering an economy-focused State of the Union address to Congress, Obama is picking up the pace of his jobs message and demonstrating how he can advance his economic agenda administratively and through his ability to coax action from important interest groups.
Were not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that were providing Americans the kind of help they need. Ive got a pen and Ive got a phone, Obama said Tuesday as he convened his first Cabinet meeting of the year.

Besides, the economy is stagnant because of over bearing, heavy handed Government policies and regulation.
Who actually believes that getting more heavy handed will change anything....Oh that's right..Progressives!!
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
What he needs is a special prosecutor with a perverse interest in his lower intestinal tract.
“Stroke of the pen, law of the land. Pretty cool!” —Paul “The Forehead” Begala and Bill Clinton cheerleader
“The beatings will continue until morale improves!” (A sign found on a sunken Japanese sub.)
I thought there was some talk about a march on Washington on or near April 15?
The pen is for overriding the law of the land, the phone is for whomever is giving him instructions about what to do.
We have the 2A.
what’s the proper term,
When it becomes apparent that those dems that shoved obammycare up our rears are going to lose their elections badly, obammy will be toast.
So stick the pen in your nose then call someone who gives a shite what you've got.
What is Kon-sty-two-shun?
We don’t do Kon-sty-two-shun here. It’s just racist, sexist and homophobic.
Now go pay your taxes. Your government is broke. :)
Here is my handle, here is my spout.
What he left out of the quote was: I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone and I’m not afraid to use them!
This duck has no feet.
He’s starting to focus. He’s like a laser.
Stick the pen in your ear, and scrawl across that scrap of paper in front of you with the earpiece end of the handset.
I love it when little men act tough.
Isn’t this the guy who has never had a cabinet meeting?
And no brains.
Now all he needs is a crooked Supreme Court..................Forget that, he’s got that too
Ive got a pen and Ive got a phone,
Too bad he doesn’t have a functioning brain.
Val, have you seen my pen? Val? Valerie?
Why are Americans so stupid to fall for this lazy socialist idiot child? He is so lazy he does nearly zero real work. His underlings do all his work and thinking. He appointed stooges who believe the same leftist garbage he does
I think the MSM cleaned up his quote. He probably said “I have a scepter and a crown and all must bow down!”
Sometimes a Lame Duck becomes a Cornered Rat, that can be a dangerous critter, because they have nothing to lose.
We’ve got tar and we’ve got feathers.

Use your pen to sign your resignation. The economy would leap like a monkey sitting on a firecracker.
Arrogant basturd! Clearly unconstitutional.
Because the US system of education and social reinforcement has been taken over by the Left to produce something akin to the Gammas, Deltas, and Epsilons of Brave New World. Such creations will never see the truth and will follow Obama no matter what.
The arrogance is breathtaking................
The resolutions were not accepted by the federal authority of the time. Patrick Henry, who normally stood with the states, condemned the resolutions as treasonous because he believed they would lead to secession and civil war.
Buy a copy of States' Rights and the Union by Forrest McDonald. It's the best book on federalism, and no library should be without it.
So Obama confirms the fact that he intends to be dictator.
Unfortunately, we have to wait until June to discover if he will be “made legal” dictator by SCOTUS after the arguments over his recess appointments yesterday.
When he says” We’re not going to wait for legislation” and that he has a pen and a phone, he is telling us to our face that he considers himself a dictator.
I doubt Congress or the Courts will do anything except confirm his Fuhrer status.
It is going to take We The Little People to defy and remove him and his host from power.
And that will not happen by any civil means. Not when he lessons of history are so clear.
Ah, yes. I'm struggle to make ends meet and Obama wants me to feel more obligated to my neighbors.
He's an ugly little man.
Notice how NONE of those items help small business?
The arrogance is breathtaking................
What is equally amazing is the passivity of most Americans who are either ignorant or indifferent about executive abuse of power, They just don’t care so the arrogant Obama keeps ratcheting up his grab for more power.
Congress may as well go home. They no longer serve any legislative function.
If I had a pen
I’d sign stuff in the morning
I’d sign stuff in the evening
Controlling this land
I’d impose Social Justice
I’d wipe out Freedom
I’d stir up
The rich ones and the poor ones
Aaaa aaa aaa aaaaaa
all over this la-and
And if I had a phone
I’d dial it in the morning
I’d dial it in the evening
Do it cause I can
I’d organize flash mobs
I’d threaten corporations
Hate and fear
And utter desperation
Aaaa aaaa aaa aaa
all over this la-and
At some point, even liberals must realize that anything he does will have major implications to the next Republican POTUS. He or she will have the blueprint laid out before them and will follow it accordingly..................
Yeesh. I just had a conversation with a Zero aplogogist about this. he said, “Well, I need context for this.” I told him the context was right in the damned sentence he uttered! He doesn’t give two craps about legislation! I don’t know what it takes to get through to these people!!!
The original lyrics were written by an avowed communist, Pete Seeger, and the ‘hammer’ was the hammer of communism.............
You are wrongly assuming there is ever going to be another Republican/Conservative POTUS - that somehow this is just politics as usual and next election cycle will return us from a MarxoFascist oligarchy back to a Republic.
You might want to read what Adams had to say about what happens when a people lose their share in the legislature and refuse to stop every encroachment on their liberty .
We are already there.
“Ive Got A Pen And Ive Got A Phone”
So did Hitler.
The Clown has a pen and a phone, but doesn’t have A CLUE. Harvard Grad my arse.
At the first sign of executive overreach by a Republican president, the liberal media will start calling for impeachment. It won’t take much.
marxist punk is going down as the worst president in history.
Makes Carter look good
