2008 Obama: ‘I Intend to Reverse’ Using Executive Orders
national review ^

February 13, 2014 5:24 PM 2008 Obama: 'I Intend to Reverse' Using Executive Orders By Andrew Johnson

Candidate Barack Obama might take issue serious issue with President Obama’s use of executive power. Citing his time as a constitutional-law professor lecturer, the then-senator emphasized the importance of the separation of powers while on the campaign trail.

“The biggest problems we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power in to the executive branch, and not go through Congress at all,” he told an Iowa audience. “That’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.”

During last month’s State of the Union address, President Obama stated that he will circumvent Congress by using executive orders to push his domestic agenda. Earlier this week, the administration delayed the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate for medium-sized businesses until 2016 and weakened it for large businesses.

Well, gotta hand it to him... he did indeed completely reverse using them. To the other end of the spectrum - completely abusing them.

Anyone who voted for him in 2008 deserves to be ridiculed.

Anyone who voted for him in 2012 deserves contempt.

The one sure way to tell when Obama is lying about something or planning on lyiong about something is to see if he is breathing.

I’m going to resolve the issue of rules coming out of the White House as if from a king, by issuing rules out of the White House as if from a king.

Democrats lie. Just look at the sleaze that was just elevated to Atty Gen in Virginia. He said he was against changing the Virginia Law about same-sex marriage. As soon as he was able to cheat his way in, he changes the law. I don’t know how anyone with a conscience could support any Dem!

I worked 25 years for the State of Alaska DOT as a draftsman. In March of 1992 George Bush the first issued an executive order that all projects funded by the FHWA would be designed and plans be labeled using the metric system. Every state was ordered to change their road signs to kilometers instead of miles, also.
A big part of my job was preparing acquisition plats for whoever was affected by an upcoming project - the drawings were 8.5" by 14" and since the public wasn't being ordered to go metric, I had to dimension everything on these tiny drawings in metric AND English. It was ridiculous to say the least, and when the republicans took over congress in 1994, they said to forget that whole metric thing and we did. I don't like executive orders by a prez - not the way things are supposed to work.

“Anyone who voted for him in 2008 deserves to be ridiculed.

Anyone who voted for him in 2012 deserves contempt.”

Anyone who still supports him today, deserves to have their ass kicked.

It was ALWAYS about power.

He will say anything and be anything to get power.

Once he has amassed enough power he will turn homicidal.

Marxism has always been based on lies.

They have always done exactly the opposite of their public speeches.

Always.

Anyone who believes one single word they utter is a fool.

oh thiat one is worse than all the other bush bashes combined...

“George Bush trying to bring more and more power in to the executive branch, and not go through Congress at all,” he told an Iowa audience. “That’s what I intend to reverse”

how self canceling can one get.

Bush did “it” and bozo intended to reverse it...by DOING...”it”.

How does he get away with all that pitiful jackassward malarky?

I agree. I think the same things about Venezuela and Argentina, where the opposition still pretends that a new election (as if a real election were possible) will change things.

OBAMA’S HIDEOUS MORALLY INDEFENSIBLE EXECUTIVE ORDER ON ABORTION.

“Obama, the man who is carrying out the slaughter of the innocents with the same enthusiasm as Herod and Pharaoh calls for us to find a way to live together as one human family.”

President Obama’s first act of “change” was to issue an executive order nullifying George W. Bush’s executive order banning on using taxpayer money to fund international “family planning” groups who counsel women and perform abortions around the world, but mainly in Africa. Obama will ensure that potentially millions more never even get the chance of life in the first place.

Obama signed an executive order Jan. 23, 2009, reversing the “Mexico City policy” — a prohibition first implemented in 1984 by Reagan, in which forbade the U.S. government from sending money to overseas family-planning organizations that perform abortions or offer abortion counseling. The policy did not apply to abortions carried out in cases of rape, incest, or life-threatening conditions

The ban, which was lifted when Bill Clinton took office, was later re-established by George W. Bush in 2001. Obama’s executive order passed almost exactly 36 years to the day since the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion.

Since abortion was legalized in US, more of 55 million unborn babies have been murdered, most of them, black and Hispanics children.

Fifty-eight percent of Americans said they disagreed with the president Obama decision to give overseas funding to family planning organizations that provide abortions, according to the survey taken between Friday and Sunday. Thirty-five percent supported it.

That would have been Jonathan Turley she saw. A few, very few, liberals speaking out regarding the lawlessness of the administration. He happens to be one of the few.
