Skip to comments.Paul Ryan: Obama presidency "increasingly lawless"
Posted on 02/02/2014 4:10:07 PM PST by afraidfortherepublic
Top House Republicans slammed President Obamas embrace of executive action to move his agenda forward on Sunday, saying the presidents freelancing creates a trust deficit that makes bipartisan legislating more difficult.
We have an increasingly lawless presidency where he is actually doing the job of Congress, writing new policies and new laws without going through Congress. Presidents don't write laws, Congress does, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told ABC. Executive orders are one thing, but executive orders that actually change the statute, that's totally different.

Ryan on Obama, the law breaker
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Hey, Ryan. If Mexicans can break the law, why can’t Obama?
I’m surprised (and happy) that they’re finally beginning to notice.
Forhead slap: You think?
Wow...Captian Obvious award time!

Paul Ryan’s going to prison with the rest of them.
He’s almost as big a fraud as Obama.
So what is Ryan’s plan to stop this lawlessness.
Get off the STUMP, Ryan. We’re not buying what you’re selling on immigration!
Paul Ryan is also Lawless. It takes one to know one.
Amnesty lovin Paul Ryan.
I find it a disgrace that Americans are so afraid of being called a racist that they are letting Obama get away with anything he wants to do. America has lost it courage. We’re all cowards now.
...and republicans in congress are increasingly uninterested!
So, impeach him
..hey Ryan, where have you been?...it started with the take over of GM back in 09...glad to see your catching up though
Hey Paul, pretty selective about which laws can be broken aren’t you? When you advocate rewarding lawbreakers how can you criticize the president for breaking the law.
Ya-—Ryan-—Such a proponent of Natural Law Theory, who was actually talking about “Just Law” (Natural Moral Law) promoting sodomy, a Vice? How irrational is that???? And, YES, “Just Law” HAS to be Rational, to be “Just Law”.
We have thousands of laws NOW that should be “Null and Void” NOT just what you are citing. Why such late outrage?. “Post Constitutional” is how Mark Levine described our country a year ago.
Let’s get back to Rule of Law-—not, Rule of Man.
Congress needs to reestablish Constitution Law—years ago.
Laws and the Constitution don’t apply to Emperor Obama!
Obama is LAW-Less because Republican “leaders” are BALL-LESS!!
It doesn't matter if they notice. They are complicit with the Obungler, because they will not do anything about it.
Do you live in Vienna and therefore not understand American politics? Or do you believe yourself to subscribe to the Vienna School?
For pete’s sake, Ryan is a horrible communicator and a totally wooden personality, but he has excellent if somewhat bloodless ideas.
And as for the Mexicans, would you rather have illegal Mexican gardeners and maids working for a living, or LEGAL, government-imported Middle Eastern or African Muslim “refugees” supported by us, the taxpayers?
Legalize the Latin American workers and kick the federal and state supported anti-American “legal immigrant” bums out of the country. No illegal Mexican has ever attacked us, but a lot of legal Middle Easterners (including most of the 9/11 jihadis), African and even European Muslims (think Boston bombing) have done so.
Yes, he’s just like YOU Paul: lawless. See “illegal immigration”. Bob
You can tell a guy is hoping to curry favor when he states something as obvious as this.
Ryan, it’s too late. You got the attention you wanted. Now deal with the fact that you squandered it.
Conservatism to Ryan: Over and OUT!
Well, things are getting a LITTLE out of control....
So they bloviate over and over telling us the same crap over and over like we dont know it. DO SOMETHING OR JUST SHUT THE F UP ALREADY!
Supporting shamnesty won’t get you any applause here, Graham.
Paul Ryan: Obama Presidency “increasingly lawless” and we don't have enough spine or gonad material to do anything about it.
Emperor Obama, history lesson
There are a lot of comparisons to be made between Caligula, the Roman emperor, and our current president.
Caligula was loved by most of the working class until he started feeding them to the lions, cutting off their limbs when they disagreed with him and changing Roman culture to get what he wanted. He became the most feared and despised ruler in history.
Our president isn’t far behind. He’s much better at getting what he wants than Caligula was. He kills us with his smiles while telling us what we want to hear, then does what he wants anyway, like Caligula.
He claims executive privilege when we protest, interprets the Constitution the way he needs it to be, and spends our money like it was his. All the while knowing that by the time the politicians or courts decide to act, he is well down the road with his own agenda.
Unfortunately, the end result is health care that doesn’t work, an IRS we can’t trust, a national debt we can’t pay off, the NSA that can spy on us, with no accountability in sight.
Americans still wait with breathless anticipation for this president to find out who really is responsible for killing our ambassador to Libya. The video explanation he gave us has been proven false, and guess what, terrorists and terrorism still exist.
Welcome to the new America, where our emperor has new clothes only a few can see.
Meanwhile, the GOPe is busy trying give amnesty to millions of foreign lawbreakers. We’re in heap big trouble, Kemo Sabe. Through Barry’s “fundamental transformation”, America has become a nation of lawlessness.
quisling quibble once you step over the line you ARE a criminal
His plan is to cut military pensions. Clearly that will stop it.
Thousands of crime victims, at the hands of the poor widdle mexicans, I imagine.
Sorry to break it to you, but you’re completely off base. The problem is not illegal immigration (which is mostly people who want to be here) but legal immigration.
Legality or illegality is determined by the laws of the country in question, and these can be changed at any time.
You are aware that Obama issued an executive order soon after he was immaculated that took away from the legal Latin American quota to give it to people from “Muslim lands,” right? I thought not.
No one gives a damn what you have to say, Ryan.
An appropriate moniker, for this thread....
Talk is cheap, Jack - what are you going to do about it? Suspect you are part of the problem not part of the solution.
Ryan, like Rubio has squandered their opportunity to be relevant to the conservative cause, blinded by the chamber of commerce.
And Ryan wants to pass a stupid amnesty bill that will give Obama more laws to ignore and selectively enforce (enforce amnesty for illegals and ignore border security).
Ryan is coming off lately like either a fool, or an ally of Obama and the leftists.
Fairly standard for a Congessman. If there are going to be any laws broken they want to do it themselves, Look how both sides of the aisle lined up to “negotiate” how the FBI would be allowed access into “Cold Hard Cash” Jefferson’s office when they were getting ready to nail him for bribery.
By who? Certainly you do not think the gutless GOP will do anything.
This once great country is Fked with these GOP morons.
The last Republican Presidential Slate contained a former supporter of Baby Murder, the originator of Obamacare, a betrayer of American Vets, and a supporter of Amnesty.
The problem is not illegal immigration (which is mostly people who want to be here) but legal immigration.
While I am in genuine agreement with you that there are SERIOUS problems with legal immigration, for you to say that “the problem is not illegal immigration,” I confess that I will have to say I wonder if your are with the Chamber of Commerce? LULAC? WTH?
Sorry, BOTH kinds (legal and illegal) of immigration are a problem. For you to use the (serious) problems posed by the way our country is managing legal immigration to somehow negate (or distract from) the equally egregious problems posed by illegal immigration, is — if not downright intellectually dishonest — then, may I suggest, at the very least, indicative of a shallow understanding of the topic. (Minimizing a serious issue never resolved it.)
There are studies that show that illegals are putting a very heavy load on our health and other services. Are you saying that is okay? I am only getting started. (Think: Crime rates, public school enrollments, uninsured drivers, etc.)
Just because someone wants to be here does not automatically make him a good guy. We have let many child molesters, rapists, murderers, and gangsters in via illegal immigration, and they have notched up real victims, but this is not a problem to you?
It is our country, and we can decide whom we wish to get here, or not.
Nowhere have the common US citizens said they welcome 25 million illegals. You are at risk of coming off as a bit of an elitist, I should think.
Obama presidency “increasingly lawless”...
Then why f—k doesn’t ANYONE in the GOP do something about it? Ball less every damn one of them.
We’re nearing the time..... whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
What this means is that the people no longer control their own destiny - it is being controlled by those that have the money. I have given up on crying foul here or anywhere else for that matter - it matters little. The Tea Party was the last resort and look where they are now - condemned by news folks, Republicans, not to mention the Democrats.
We’ve lost the battle it seems... I will stand by and watch the fall of the Republic and thank mostly the Education system that failed us along with both political parties.
I am assuming that this is my last post here as I have given up on any positive outcome for the future - the way things have been going... Have little hope for our future since our young have been raised on such liberal tripe!
Oh, please, the people who kill people in every city are American born blacks. Latin and Caribbean immigrants kill very few people, unless they are involved in the drug trade, in which case they kill other drug dealers.
I grew up in NYC, and when I lived in Upper Manhattan, it was the Dominicans (mostly black Caribbean Hispanics) who brought law and order back and actually let us Irish go back into the parks, because they simply stabbed any of the people from Harlem who tried to bust up their birthday parties in the park, hold them up on the way back from their jobs, etc.
You are clearly pretty ignorant.
Hey, Ryan. If Mexicans can break the law, why cant Obama?
