Skip to comments.Obama: "Where I Can Act On My Own Without Congress, I'm Going To Do So"

PRESIDENT OBAMA: North Carolina still has a higher than average unemployment rate so this is important to this state. Folks aren't looking for a handout, they're not looking for special treatment. There are a lot of people who are sending out resumes every single day, but the market, the job market is still tough in pockets around the country. And people need support, a little help so they can look after their families while they're looking for a new job.
So Congress should do the right thing and extend this vital lifeline for millions of Americans. Of course, that's just short term. Long-term, the challenge of making sure everybody who works hard can get ahead in today's economy is so important that we can't wait for Congress to solve it. Where I can act on my own without Congress, I' m going to do so.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Meanwhile, the House GOP will work on immigration reform.
“Where I Can Act On My Own Without Congress, I’m Going To Do So”
We call it Un-Constitutional Congressional Bypass.
Obummer should just round up the entire House and Senate and line them up on the east side of the capitol and burn them at the stake in front of the Supreme Court building. Obummer is now in charge and pulled of a Coup. We live in the new land of aMeriKa. Obummber’s world. Our great Democracy is over.
As opposed to what you’ve done for 5 years?
Well, I certainly don’t see any push back or outrage from the so-called opposition *leadership*. So, I guess he has pulled off a coup.
Lock and load!
The GOP will put him back in his place according to the US Constitution. Wait, never mind.
And the media bashed Bush because they thought he went too far ...so where is the MSM now???
300 million can ignore the law as well as one...
This isn’t an intellectual exercise.
It is late but time to go DC and march to throw these bastards out. Go to their offices and to the White House and throw them into the street or die trying.
The MSM is a communists club and its head is King Obama. Add the communist Hollywood and forget any negative remarks about their king, King Obama.
“Well, I certainly don’t see any push back or outrage...”
I’ve noticed that, as with Coburn on Mark Levin’s show last night and a bit played today by Rush with Karl Rove. Instead of righteous indignation, they very passively, sadly, and sorrowfully state and restate the problem, as if Obama’s over reach is a force of nature, like a hurricane, that can’t be turned. Coburn said that legislators have trouble in court establishing standing in combating it. That is absurd, but why go to court?
If you like your Congress you can keep your Congress. Period!
Right - just wait until a Conservative is president again and watch them foam. It’ll be Bush and Reagan all over again.
Now THAT is a post that recommends actually doing something though.
While removal of Zero, under Harry Reid, is out of the question in the senate, it is time to defend the Constitution in the House and go ahead with impeachment proceedings. That would be the honest thing to do and the only way the sheeple will ever hear of the Constitution, that we even have one.
Of course, the senate failed the people and gave Clinton a pass, and he rebounded in the polls after the media rehabilitated him.
All things right and honest seem to backfire in DC, in this age, don’t they?
Direct action through peaceful protest and civil disobedience requires a lot of people but it seems to me the only thing left that gives any hope of turning this around.
Wrong. Congress should rein in the out of control president and the out of control, unelected, unaccountable rule-making bureauacracy that’s stifling our economy. Dump the EPA and watch our economy boom.
Somebody please help fill in this blind spot. I know that the Congress can override presidential vetoes with 2/3 majority support of each House. So Congress can act on its own without executive branch support in such a case.
But I don’t see from the Constitution where a president can act on her own without the support of Congress, particularly if Congress can get its act together and impeach the president.
Then resign. You can do that without Congress.
Remember the gop is still “mulling” over 32 possible candidates, mulling
Impeach Barack Schickelgruber now!
America Ruled by Decree
I very much agree with you.
Even in our own towns we should protest wherever it applies.
IRS, NATL GUARD, STATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCY, Immigration
offices— whatever Obama messes with, we should be out in front of the corresponding agency. The list is long where we should be in our cities and counties and state capitols.
United States Senator Mike Lee
Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register. It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats. The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the president.
And wait...and wait...and wait...
Well since Huckleberry is trying to ban the word RINO - who knows. America is gone as we knew it.
If everyone refused to pay their taxes until this bastard fraud is removed he’d be stopped cold.
I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone and I’m a DICKtator.
How can you do that? They have the power of garnishment.
And the conservative that manages to get elected has ethics and doesn’t do the dirty crap that the Democrat party does to keep and stay in power.
Heads you win, tails I lose. Why do I keep losing the coin toss again? I don’t understand.
Oh, he could tear the political landscape up, perfectly legal-like, by enforcing the law. See here.
(The process needn't be the governor of a state, but a President could use Art 4, Sec 4 and move, causing outcry from the political class, and then handling them appropriately.)
marxist, mooselimb,antiAmerican,homosexual punk, well that about sums up obammy.
Revolts aren’t won by votes.
Do you know how many small businesses file every quarter and send these bastards a check?
Small businesses could bring this POS government to it’s knees by refusing to send in their protection money.
There are more of us than them. They need to be reminded of that. BY WHATEVER MEANS NECESSARY!
