Obama to Assert Unilateral Agenda (Unprecedented Constitutional Challenge Looming)
Wall Street Journal ^ | January 27, 2014 | Carol E. Lee and Damian Paletta

Posted on 01/27/2014 4:11:48 AM PST by lbryce

President to Seek to Use State of the Union Address to Shift Souring View of Leadership

President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night will seek to shift the public's souring view of his leadership, a challenge the White House sees as critical to shaping the nation's policy direction over the next three years.

Mr. Obama will emphasize his intention to use unilateral presidential authority—bypassing Congress when necessary—to an extent not seen in his previous State of the Union speeches, White House officials said.

"We need to show the American people that we can get something done," Dan Pfeiffer, a senior White House adviser, told CNN as part of a round of interviews previewing the speech.

So, what Obama is saying if we haven't been able to accomplish anything through constitutionally legitimate means, then it will have to be by hook or crook.

And a bit of ‘In your face’ to go with it.

It’s not a matter of if the riots start, but when.

My guess, May 16th.

The man calling himself ‘Obama’ will be in prison long before he asserts anything like what is described in this news item.

Will John Boehner nod approvingly or shed a little tear; those seem to be his only personal choices.

Of course, if the Republicans, the Bohner-less Congress continues to play dead with the way the president has marginalized them, then it'll be Captain Courageous with clear sailing up to and beyond the political horizon.

SNIP

Polls show the president's lethargic record of accomplishments in 2013 raised doubts among Americans that he is capable of tackling the country's problems......

"Record of accomplishments" and "Obama" grates the psyche and generates the sort of cognitive dissonance that melts the brain.

And that's what bothers his patently vainglorious ego. So, he's going to assert a unilteral agenda, which sounds awfully un-American.

Note that Boobamba's SOTU won't be mentioning Obamacare.

WHO CAN BLAME HIM? Boobamba's prolly scared stiff of lock-stepping Dems' maniacal applause, rising to their fight as one (like they had firecrackers under their a**es).

Heck, as far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act :

OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have your choice of doctor.”

Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1940's ERA EUROPE Obama And The Dumbos marched in lockstep. The persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

=================================

SIGNING "THE BIG EFFIN' DEAL" (now known as The Big Effin" Debacle)

"Those Democrats leering over my shoulder owe me bigtime. This
healthcare bill insures we have a permanent Democratic majority."

" All except those Tea Party types, swallowed hook, line and sinker my promises that they could:
(1) keep their existing health plans,
(2) keep their own doctors that they like,
(3) keep their 25-year-olds on the family health plan,
(4) never be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition,
(5) sign up instantly on my tech-savvy government Web site,
(6) buy insurance only after becoming seriously ill."
(7) save $2,500 in annual premiums in the bargain....
(8) All without any new taxes."

"Them sonovagun Tea Partiers will rue the day they criticized my wonderful bill."

============================================

Golly, I hope when she writes his SOTU speech, Valerie
omits references to Obamacare. Or-----disaster looms.

"And let me thank every Democrat, who---without exception
---voted for Obamacare---my historic signature legislation."

"Thank you Democrats for reminding every American in every
district: 'if they like their plan, they can keep their plan.' Nice work Democrats."

RE :”he’s said this many times and thus far nobody has had the courage to say no.”

You mean walk in his office and take away his pen?

The secret service would stop them.

Mark Levin says ‘no’ everyday but I don't think Obama listens to him.

When he looks in their direction and says he doesn’t need them, they should get up and walk out. Every camera in DC would follow them and Obama’s speech would be cut short. Then when they get in front of the cameras they should say “The president has obviously forgotten that he is not a dictator and can not do anything without the house. This time the government will be shut down. Not by the republicans. But by the dictator himself. We have nothing else to say until Mr. Obama admits he’s the president of a representative republic.” Then walk away.

“Why is he not being impeached for this blatantly unconstitutional behavior???”

Because there are only about 10 people in congress who
truly oppose him. The rest, including the RINOS, are just as
died in the wool socialist as him. Besides the constitution
is a dead letter anyway. It became official when Bush Sr.
stepped into office with his “new world order”.

Obama is the left’s perfect tool.
They’ve set it up for years in our society - you can’t criticize someone if they’re “black”.

He can do ANYTHING he wants to do, with no restrictions of consequences, because of his 1/8th “blackness”.

Only if there is a mass civilian uprising or what is left of the conservative military takes action. The GOPe won't allow any effective political action against El Presidente.

I would argue the decision will be made behind closed doors by whispering politicos trying to garner the courage to take decisive and permanent action.

Obama isn’t black.

He’s an Arab.

He’s a moslem imposter and it’s about to come out, and all hell is going to break loose.

Hint: Look at his scalp. See all those carefully planned scars? He’s had hair work done.

There isn’t 1 scar. There are scars sectioning off every inch of his scalp.

Go look at a bunch of close ups of side/back of his head. He’s a moslem plant, he’s got NO birth certificate, and he’s using a stolen CT SSN.

Those last items are widely known.

Many Dems and some GOP are going to prison.

Why does everybody think McCain rode to the rescue of Moslem Brotherhood in Egypt?

He flew over there w Lindsey to try to spring Moss Bros from prison.

Because our senate and our presidency gas been compromised aka taken over.

Someone posted that he actually has 1/8th “black” heritage.
The rest, as you say, is not.

But, there are HUGE advantages to claiming to be “black”,
of which is the immunity from criticism,

which is exactly why he was selected by the left.

So, what Obama is saying if we haven't been able to accomplish anything through constitutionally legitimate means, then it will have to be by hook or crook.

Many AMERICANS are just fine with this - they hate the GOP more than anything they can imagine which means anything their black jesus does is fine with them. LIBERALISM is a mental disorder and if you don't believe it just look around your neighborhood. These libtards gladly sacrifice their liberties in exchange for handouts from Santa Obama and his RAT party. Anyone stupid enough to attend his latest 'call to worship' will only hear about inequality in the USA and how the RICH HAVE TO BE PUBISHED for taking advange of the DISADVANTAGED.

Congressmen should AVOID capitol hill.

What if Obama’s grand finale is arranging for the moslem brotherhood to blow up the State of the Union chamber?

I wouldn’t want to be within 30 miles of that place.

Although I would enjoy hearing that McCain got blown to hell.

The left has spent DECADES setting it up so that the populace is cowed into the fetal position at the thought of being called “racist”.

So, in a way, they are “conditioned”, if not “hypnotized”, to avoid questioning the man in any way.
