President Obama: I'm the Law
Forbes ^ | 2-12-14

Posted on 02/16/2014 9:45:42 AM PST by SJackson

One question congressional and presidential candidates should be asked is how we should go about restoring the rule of law to our federal government. Not even during the world wars of the last century was the executive branch as brazen in assuming sweeping and unlegislated powers, changing laws without the consent of the legislative branch and ignoring laws it didn’t like.

Lawsuits are certainly one possible avenue to take, but a slow one–which is what the White House is counting on. It will do what it wants, and by the time an unfavorable decision is handed down, it will have done many other things. It will also find ways to circumvent such a decision or just ignore it altogether.

How will the Administration act when, as is likely, the Supreme Court delivers an adverse ruling concerning the President’s appointment of members to the National Labor Relations Board when the Senate wasn’t technically in recess? Obama’s appointees went on to make rulings that were harmful to business. Of course, the

Administration will promise to comply and will then pull who knows what cards it has up its sleeve to make an end-run around the decision.

If conservatives take the Senate in Nov, “the Law” may be heading for impeachment.

The President’s actions aren’t the problem.

It’s the implicit permission to do whatever is necessary to promote the agenda that a very large part of the electorate loves. (Lots and lots of Progressives out there.)

IMHO

I think impeachment is a possibility...not a certainty mind you but a possibility.

I don't thing the GOP should attempt it unless the people are strongly behind them.

But there will be other scandals in the Obama administration. There may be something egrarious enough still to happen which will get a strong majority of the public behind the GOP.

When he says “I am the law, therefore I am above the law,” then there is no law. He is effectively following Aleister Crowley’s edict of “do what thou wilt”.

The house republicans have not had the guts to do anything meaningful.

As a minority in the Senate the republicans just raised the debt limit.

What makes you think the republican leadership in the Senate will act any differently if they hold a majority? - seriously

Wait til he says “I am the State”. I believe he will run for and win a 3rd Term. Why not? He can change the laws at his will? Besides this—he must! If another party takes over, stops his cover ups—Obama may well be sent to prison! He must keep control! He can not step down! His only choice is to appoint a person—his clone—to take over and keep the cover ups going. A new president who can pardon him. Biden? Clinton (she might toss him under the bus) some other Soros pick?

There are but a handful of "conservatives" in the Senate right now. We will be lucky to add one or two to that number in November.
