Obama: 'I Can Do Whatever I Want'

5:29 PM, FEB 10, 2014 • BY DANIEL HALPER

Via the pool report:

Monticello

At 4:45 POTUS and president Hollande walked out from a portico and strolled in Front of your pool with Leslie Bowman, president of the Monticello Foundation. Looking at a terrace she said that Jefferson loved to admire the landscape from there. POTUS said that he'd like to take a look and seemed delighted to "break the protocol". "That's the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want" he quipped, walking to the terrace with his guest and Ms. Bowman. Pool now in the mansion as the leaders will come and visit Jefferson's study.

The comment came around the time the White House announced it would be delaying the Obamacare mandate for some businesses unilaterally.

He’s right. The media is all in, the GOPe is behind him too.

Given that alignment, the Tea Party is nearly powerless. And if someone in the Tea Party should get traction, there is the NSA, IRS and DOJ to slap that individual down.

He can do anything he wants and he is doing it so well isn’t it. What I want to know is what the hell does this idiot have to do to get impeached? Rape a goat on live national TV? And even then the RINO party would probably still hide under their desks. What we got here is a lunatic running amok.

‘Obama’ can do whatever he wants until the public discovers he is actually Bari Shabazz, son of Malcolm X and ‘Weatherman Group’ FBI Most Wanted fugitive Elizabeth Ann Duke, who skipped bail after being charged in 1985 with the Brinks robbery in Nyack NY in which 3 law enforcement officers were shot dead.

Also, upon arrest, the mother of ‘president’ Bari Shabazz was caught with fake birth certificates, several SSN cards that weren’t hers, and equipment to manufacture forged ID.

Ring any bells?

She skipped bail in 1985 and became an FBI Most Wanted fugitive until after Barry was elected, when bizarrely, in 2009, Eric Holder’s DOJ dismissed all charges against the still-at-large mother.

The law is whatever he wants it to be.

He can do anything he wants and he is doing it so well isn’t it.

***********
He does whatever he wants but when a mess arises its always blamed on someone or something else. He craves complete power but then refuses to be held responsible for his failures.

Lets get real and not take this out of context. Doing whatever I want in the context of a schedule is different than what the headline is implying. However the POSOTUS certainly likes to push the limits of his executive authority.

Could you imagine if the CEO of IBM or Apple said this? Hell look at the AOL CEO comments on 401K burden on comaany and this guy, the POTUS is simply the CEO of the executive branch.

The hatred of the left of this country shows with his every statement.

Sort of.

After what, ten years of war?

And then some of his buddies came back in 1812 and burned Washington.

Well from all indications and the sound of crickets coming from the GOP it would appear that Bam can pretty much do what he wants. Wait til he EO’s martial law.

He can break the law and not get prosecuted. He can sell the country out to its sworn enemies. He can take money from the productive and give it to people who vote for him.
He can and has done that.

Watch as he runs for a 3rd Term and wins! He will have the GOP run someone who can’t win—McCain maybe. That and ACORN will have him rack up a landslide! His VP will be Hillary but that will be his undoing as he will have a fatal accident—why his heliocopter will crash! Then we will have Hillary who will be a better President than Obumo—but that’s not saying much. My prediction for 2016-17.

That statement alone should be grounds for impeachment. Not for the “crime” of saying it, but as a trigger to investigateand punish all of his unconstitutional and extraconstitutional acts.

Exactly. THE #1 grounds for impeachment is when a sitting POTUS attempts to take absolute power “1. Exceeding the Powers of the Office in Derogation of those of Another Branch of Government.” My God, how many freakin’ examples do we need?

Thanks, but such an outrageous statement that I am still shocked and dumbfounded by his making it.

(and have a new tag line, replacing "Obama - Lord of the LIES").
