White House Warns Obama Ready To 'Bypass' Congress On 2014 Agenda
The year since President Obama's 2013 state of the union address has been marked by record legislative inaction. White House officials are setting the scene for a confrontational state of the union address on Tuesday night, claiming that President Barack Obama is preparing to bypass Congress with executive action on divisive issues such as economic inequality.
However, in a flurry of last-minute appearances, advisers also hinted at a growing sense within the administration that the president's chances of securing more ambitious legislative reform before November's midterm elections may already have passed.
In an interview on Sunday and in an email to supporters on Saturday Dan Pfeiffer, Obama's senior adviser for strategy and communications, struck a defiant tone. We need to show the American people that we can get something done; either through Congress or on our own, Pfeiffer told CNN. The president is not going to tell the American people he will wait for Congress.

How is BAMMY not the White House?
Just more of the Limbaugh theorem?
He’s polishing up his pen, phone and race card to run the country the way they do it in Kenya and Indonesia. More wet dreams from his “father”. To hell with the Constitution and Bill of Rights. He don’t need no steenkin’ Constitution or Bill of Rights. What do we think this is? A nation of laws or something?
This next year will be scary, folks.
impeachment is the only weapon left in the house’s arsenal.
they use to have control of the purse strings... except the WH controls the printing press as well as pushing fraudulent bill payments via federal credit unions
stop being pussies and do your duty.. or immediately resign so someone else can (of course I realize they’re progressives as well.. blocking any possible threats from the right)
Yes it will, because Obama is not the President. He was fraudulently put into a second term.
What makes it scary is “will anyone do anything about it”?
The people will tell Obama he better wait for congress.
If obama does not follow the US Constitution and the democratically enacted laws of the land...
Why should states or the people?
Unicorns have a better chance of flying out your arse than the House impeaching Obama and the Senate convicting in order to remove him from office.
There is no record in all human history of a tyrant ever stepping down via civil means.
We have succumbed to a velvet MarxoFascist coup, with nary a shot fired - and everyone is still waiting on Congress to do something to stop it - when the Legislative leadership decided to take part in it!!!
There is one little word missing: that
White House Warns that Obama Ready to Bypass Congress in 2014
The GOP leadership are feckless. Utterly worthless. That the House GOP elected “The Weeper” Boehner as Speaker of the House is more than just an embarrassment, it is tantamount to surrender.
No wonder the GOP sucks.
“This next year will be scary, folks.”
It will, indeed. Some people think that 2016 is the make or break year; I think it is 2014. If we don’t start turning this disaster around, this country, as a constitutional republic, will be history.
Because if we don’t turn this around, this country will devolve into secession, or revolution, or civil war, or some combination of all three.
“If (the government) does not follow the US Constitution and the democratically enacted laws of the land...Why should states or the people?”
There, I corrected it.
“We have succumbed to a velvet MarxoFascist coup.”
That is EXACTLY what has happened.
The next THREE Years will be scary!
Not really, they could actually dare to speak out against it forcefully and consistently. they should have escalated the alarm on his unconstitutional behavior with his rewriting of Obamacare, let alone with his other transgressions.
But outrage over this blatant statement of intention in the State of the Union is the best place to start from here.
Just declairing he’s going to bypass Congress should be grounds for impeachment!
Right on point. not with the current crop of RINOs
it would be interesting if there was a chorus of ‘YOU LIE!’ as he spoke
It’s like the broken pane window syndrome. His first trasngressions in unilaterally enforcing his version of the Dream Act when unpunished, so now we live in a neighborhood of broken panes, no one cares, the constitution is in shreds. Judges run amok striking down anti-gay and abortion laws, immigration laws are flouted and lawbreakers are rewarded, This is not the America you grew up in. We no longer live in a constitutional democracy. Last person out, turn off the lights.
Unless O wants a crisis confrontation he should not do this. We perceive that he says he wants to work with the Congress but only follows that with name-calling, accusations, and baiting criticism. Not exactly the way one "works with" the Congress. We understand now who is at fault. It only works once or twice....
The Pubs should fricking walk out if Ohole insults them by telling them he’s going to bypass them.
“..should..”. Will never happen.
Obama is blowing spoke up someone’s rump with his threat.
ABsolutely right. Sitting back and hoping that somebody else is going to do the job is foolish. It is up to you, it’s up to me. We must make our voices heard.
.... The wolf is in the hen house and the media circles it’s collective wagons to protect the wolf ....... instead of fighting off that wolf and protecting the hens.
What else is new..
Boehner has covered up Benghazi for AWOL Commie Obama, and now Commie Obama is going to bypass Doormat Boehner?
This week will be scary. Markets will dive tomorrow, and after Tuesday’s Constitution bonfire, Weds will probably be dire. The politicians will not be able to do anything when the money disappears. Nothing to steal.
