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.

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.
I’d vote for the trash collector over Cornyn. Well maybe not, the trash collector would probably be an Obozo supporter.
I’m hoping we can primary Cornyn out of office.
Who are you looking at to replace?
RINO Alert. Aisle 13.
We intend to see every RINO, AND, their sympathizers into the loss column. They must LOSE. This has to stop. No more socialist R’s get our vote. We may get a democrat, but the RINOS are through, as in DONE.
Pass the word, innovative— DONE.
We are not Democrat Lite.
It wasn’t that long ago that the Republicans had majorities in the House and Senate, and the Presidency to boot.
Boehner is a wuus, he could start legitimate impeachment now, has multiple reasons to.won’t, might cry..so now politics is all about total lies. This country needs to sell off washington dc, to pay the debt, take away the ability of the fedearal gangsta to raise taxes at all, states should have a balanced budget ammendment, and fund what the people want with surpluses for thr federal g. If we cannot support the army we have as our wealth becomes worthles , until we recover our foreign policy is screw yall, take care of yourself, attack us, we nuke you, army not big enough, just bake em. Once we get back on our feet financially, learn from the pathetic cruel and evil we have allowed to ruin the christian founded country.
Unfortunately the last and all future elections are fake. We all know the election was rigged, no one cares about that.
Cornyn has to go. No more boxing in conservatives.
Like Pavlov’s dogs we vote for the Cornyn types and the Linsay Grahams to save ourselves from Democrats. To hell with that. These guys facilitate Democrats and turn their back on CRUZ, Lee, Jeff Sessions, Rand Paul types, and hang with Democrats solid.
Let RINOS lose. Nothing stops until they actually lose.
We have to beat Republican Establishment before we have a prayer at beating Democrats.
RINOS don’t differ with Democrats, don’t fight Democrats, but compromise and comply with Democrats.
Get off the rat wheel, they are working us over.
Is anyone going to stop him?
Then quit your complaining and pay your taxes. Your government is broke. :)
Wow, we are in trouble here.
Anybody here seen Speaker Boehner?
If you do see him, tell him that he has some Articles of Impeachment on Obama to submit before the weekend.
