Skip to comments.Obama to lay out go-it-alone approach in big speech (Announcement of his coup-d'etat)
Posted on 01/28/2014 2:10:48 AM PST by markomalley
President Barack Obama will lay out a strategy for getting around a divided Congress and boosting middle-class prosperity on Tuesday in a State of the Union speech that reflects some scaled-back legislative ambitions after a difficult year.
Obama will make clear in his 9 p.m. EST address that he is willing to bypass U.S. lawmakers and go it alone in some areas by announcing a series of executive actions that do not require congressional approval.
White House officials said Obama will announce new executive actions on retirement security and job training to help middle-class workers expand economic opportunity.
"In this year of action, the president will seek out as many opportunities as possible to work with Congress in a bipartisan way. But when American jobs and livelihoods depend on getting something done, he will not wait for Congress," Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said in an email to supporters sketching out the themes of the speech.
With three years left in office, Obama has effectively reduced for now his ambitions for grand legislative actions.

Though I can't stomach hearing this Mussolini wannabe's voice, watching to see which Repubicans give him an ovation when he makes this statement may be worth it.
Just may have to take some Phenergan before the speech.
just watch who applauds wildly when the president of the USA announces his intent to subvert the will of the people by replacing their elected representatives at all levels, with a pen and a phone
Article V before it is too late.
Don’t watch it live. They are hoping to draw a large audience and tout the ratings as a sign of 0bama’s popularity and his support by the American people.
If the Repubs aren’t sitting their hands or booing I’ll be pissed.
Dear Leader is officially a Tyrant.
Every Democrat congressman who sits and claps like a trained seal for Obama’s blatantly un-American dictatorial power-grab should be voted out of office in the fall. They shouldn’t get to flush the Constitution that Americans, much better than they, have fought and died to preserve since the first American Revolution.
Republicans ought to either not attend or walk out of the SOTU the moment Obama says he’ll usurp their legislative powers.
There ought to be consequences for a president advocating criminal activities.
I was informed that “policy disputes” did not rise to the level of impeachment.
Southerland will hold a local town meeting this coming weekend. Absent a change in his attitude, I just may sit out the mid-term election. Why bother to vote if all power is in the hands of El Presidente?
Correct. Just follow the live thread here at FR.
Hussein will stand in front of the House and Senate and tell both to shove it. All drama Obama.
If The One makes dictator talk, Pubs should walk out. But they won’t.
If the dais is not stormed and this little tyrant is not dragged out from behind the lectern and imprisoned to await his trial... well... I would hardly be shocked.
I have an acquaintance that is in the Secret Service... used to actually be on the Hillary detail. I worry about his safety.
“I just may sit out the mid-term election.”
May I remind you that many Freepers here did the same thing and got Barry elected a second term?
The Bamster will remain in office regardless.
I agree, but you don’t have to be like many here on FR that are proud to tell you that “Romney is just as bad”.
I was planning on that. I will also go to Mark Levin on line and listen. He usually does a mystery science threater 3000 style running commentary for the SOTU.
The Clown’s numbers indicate he is not popular with the masses....His announcement that he wants to rule by dictate will only hurt him and his party (read “Hitlery”) in the long (and short) run.
He is doing this because his ideology is failing....He counted on the economy being better no matter how much he plundered from the private sector. That isn’t happening, Americans KNOW he is failing, and he refuses to acknowledge the truth.
His grasps for fascist leader-like power is desperation. Heck, did you see that poll on Obamacare? 30%.of DEMOCRATS in that poll want it repealed.
