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.

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...
