Skip to comments.Obama to Congress: We're not waiting for legislation
Posted on 01/14/2014 5:43:24 PM PST by Innovative
President Barack Obama sent a message to Congress Tuesday: He plans to use his power whenever he can to move his agenda forward.
"We are not just going to be waiting for a legislation in order to make sure that were providing Americans the kind of help that they need," Obama said before a Cabinet meeting. "I've got a pen and Ive got a phone -- and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward."
Obama said he told members of his Cabinet the need to use all the tool available, not just legislation, to advance his mission.

Those boys up on Capitol Hill all wet their pants when he said this. They are scared to death of him. LOL! Crybaby cowards. DUDE! WHERE’S MY CONSTITUTION?!
He needs to be impeached. He’s a dictator.
He was a part-time lecturer.
The only tool any President has to move an agenda is legislation. There are no other tools....
Perhaps if Presidnt Obama had better people skills, the ability to relate to people he disagrees with, and wasn’t such an arrogant a—hole, he might actually be able to get a few things done the legal way....
Patriots to Obama:
He has no need to obey the law, the Republicans are neutered.
You’re a #ing pussy, Boehner.
Impeach that gay negro from Kenya.
And even if he ain't from Kenya or even a Negro...impeach him anyway.
All this said...he is certainly gay...and too darn happy too.
Let's get rid of this gay commie toad. Color has nothing to do with it.
A real American of any race is welcome at the WH...but gay commies are a horse of a different color.
And take your race baiters like Holder and Sharpton and Matthews with you.
This Country would be better off without them. And better off without you!
The SOB is going for it all and daring anyone to stop him. What an arogant blankety blank.
The sad thing is those with the free phones and watching American has talent/dancing with idiots/trapped on an island with out bras, do not care.
Impeached?? A snowball stands a better chance of surviving a blast furnace for an hour than the possibility of either the House charging, and the Senate convicting Obama and his minions of high crimes and misdemeanors.
History teaches this lesson very clearly, but somehow, Americans today would rather not think about it: dictators and tyrants do not leave power except by the threat of force.
He won’t be impeached. The Republicans are too scared of being called racist.
After the midterms they will have the votes and, hopefully the will.
...and most likely a terrible one. What a complete loser.
Has Bambi ever done the math? even a monkey can figure out that all u need to do is lower everyones taxes,including small business taxes, and there u go! Millions of jobs created in the next three months!
Wow, we are in trouble here.
And the Republicans are going to hold the House and take the Senate in 2014—How?
They sure as Hell aren’t giving me any reason to vote for them.
Dictators usually aren't impeached. They are usually violently removed from office by angry mobs and hung out to dry... literally.
That, or when it appears they have lost their hold on power, they secretly go into exile or shoot themselves in their bunkers.
Yes, we are.
Obama deserves to be impeached. Folks need to say that over and over again. But instead they(you) say over and over that Obama will never be impeached. No message, no progress.
He’s such an a-hole, it’s hard to believe he doesn’t work for Google.
* The sad thing is those with the free phones and watching American has talent/dancing with idiots/trapped on an island with out bras,do not care.*
And all of us on here bitching and moaning are no better. In fact, we’re worse, because we know better, and still do nothing.
Maybe not but the Democrats and Obama are. Your missing the point of where the problem is I think. You will have a much better chance of getting a favorable out come if the is a all out blowout at the polls for Democrats. It will scare the crap out of both sides. Then you can work on changing the Republicans.
I am trying to get Cornyn beat in the primary.
Not as much money as the Perry/Dewhurst good ol’ boy lobby, but we may have a chance.
That is what I am doing.
Thanks for asking.
I am right there with you.
We’ve been in trouble.
“Youre a #ing pussy, Boehner.”
Why are you attacking Boehner — Obama is resorting to EOs, precisely because the House, led by Boehner isn’t doing his bidding.
Why not put the blame where it belongs, on Obama who makes a mockery out of the Constitution.
When we are right it is easier to convince others.
Nope, that's a train. No mistaking it.
Why are they afraid of being called racist? We are all racist. Obama is racist...he hates white people...especially white Americans. Obama has the right to discriminate, but we don’t have the same right? Since when?
Obama knows NO math. He has a mental math block.
“I am trying to get Cornyn beat in the primary.”
Great idea — and then let’s have some Dem beat the newcomer in the real election. Obama will thank you.
How Liberal Is Sen. Cornyn?
“Actually, Cornyn is rated among the most conservative of all senators, and for years hes voted in line with fellow Republican senators more often than all but a few of his GOP colleagues.”
“The fact is, however, that Cornyn was rated the second most conservative of all incumbent U.S. senators by the nonpartisan National Journal, based on his voting record in the last Congress, which sat during 2011 and 2012. He scored 93.8 percent on the Journals composite conservative scale, which melds ratings on economic, social and foreign policy votes. He even edged out South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint, a Tea Party leader who has since left the Senate to head the conservative Heritage Foundation.”
Of course he is. Stop and ask yourself this, why hasn't a secret service agent resigned and blown the whistle? One is trying but only for his own gain. Answer, they are of like minds twisting their service as to say "they are not political"..uh-huh...suuuuuuure. CIA, NSA, FBI, IRS, alphabet agencies we may have never heard of. Foreign intel won't help; look what our politicians have done around the globe. They wan't us damaged and our own government is doing a freaking fine job of it. The House? nowhere to be found. The Senate? Well, it is a Senate and corrupt (c'mon, how does Reid become a millionaire off a Senators salary when he came from shit in Searchlight, NV.??). SCOTUS? Feh, Roberts literally changed the ACA to pass it. It is all a charade and facade at this point. Romney was not far off about the 47% remark. Its the 53% that is now being "handled" but to what purpose? Once America is done a vacuum of power will need filled. Russia? China?
Remember, once these assholes of the zero admin got in place a staffer stumbled and was noted as saying they "are here to manage America's decline".
“He was a part-time lecturer.”
He’s a full-time PUNK!
Won’t happen. The winner in the GOP Primary will win the general. See Ted Cruz...
Nice try though. Thanks for playing.
What I don’t understand is why some “conservatives” (note the quotes) are putting significant efforts into defeating a Republican, instead of focusing on defeating the Democrats.
If Cornyn wins the primary then we’ll vote for him in the general election. Otherwise we prefer someone else...
But the “someone else” may not beat the Democrat so you are ending up with even more Dems in the Senate.
Also — this article is about Obama abusing his powers, and you have no comment about that, only attacking a Republican. Obama would be proud.
I know/knew what you mean/meant.
When Obama was elected, I knew we were in big trouble. Even I couldn’t imagine how quickly and how deep the damage he’s inflicting could be....how little resistance there would be, especially politically.
He has no resistance to his actions. Most of our politicians are just looking out for themselves and their next election. Guess I’ll call a politician or two of mine and ask how they plan on responding to that....not that it will do much good.....but it’s better than giving up.
He is flagerently thumbing his power to the American people. We need to impeach his ASS. Oh but we have a Senate who likes a dictator. Perhaps that will change in November.
As Mark Levin rightfully noted today - we've suffered a coup. A quiet/bloodless coup.
We arrived at the point where it is not who casts the votes, but who counts them that ultimately matters.
You'll see. We saw our last "honest" nationally-impacted election in 2008. We are a post-constitutional mobocracy now led by a self-declared dictator.
Impeachment only applies when the rule of law exists and is respected and adhered to by the institutions charged with safeguarding the system of checks and balances.
That system no longer exists today and the Ruling Class is making sure that system never, ever gets re-established.
The Ruling Class already showcases it's contempt and disgust for the majority of the people they supposedly represent. Whenever that has occurred in history - it is because the government no longer respects or fears the people it now rules and the entire system works to subjugate and/or eradicate those that they consider a threat.
You cannot work within an entirely corrupted system to remove those whom have corrupted it. There is only one method that tyrants and their supporters succumb to removal, and it't not by any civil means whatsoever.
We need to think outside the box the Ruling Class thinks we the people are limited to operate within.
Traitors from within are far more dangerous to a cause and society than the clear enemy you know and see.
We've suffered more damage by Ruling Class Establishment RINOs than by everything the Democrats and Marxists have done to us for the last 50 years. In short, the GOP has gone along with our domestic enemies and gave tyranny the legitimacy it would never have if "Republicans" stood in stalwart opposition to it and revoked the slow incremental slide into Socialist tyranny we have been on for decades.
Today the "Republicans" are at war with Conservatives and have allegiance to Obama's agenda over that of our agenda of Constitutionalism.
Real Conservatives are loyal to our principles and the Constitution - not to party.
I wish I was as optimistic as you that voting is somehow going to make a difference. When the enemy is counting the votes, we’re screwed.
I wish I were thirty years younger, but no matter, it is what it is, and I will act accordingly anyway.
Cornyn isn’t that conservative. He favors loose in immigration laws and is ready to propose a bill to expand the number of people ineligible to own guns for life because of “mental incapacity.” He doesn’t deserve reelection.
Besides, no Republican will lose statewide in Texas, especially this year.
