So, his minions are now calling him the Constitutional attorney in the White House? How about changing that to the Constitutional dissembler in the white hut?

He always says something like this after a setback but then never pursues it. He is just grandstanding for the media and the base.

My first read of your post yielded “strangely worded letter” - which is probably more accurate anyway.

I find it difficult to believe that he's ever actually read any part of the US Constitution. Das Kommunistische Manifest (The Communist Manifesto) and Das Kapital, sure, but not the US Constitution.

Can Congress defund the Executive branch (or at least cripple it)?

Not that Boner would, but could he?

They are worse than obama. obama told us exactly what he was going to do. The GOPe is charged with stopping him and then fixing things, but instead they are helping obama by failing the check him.

Not sure EOs in response to HobbyLobby are a bad thing. Politically, anyways.

The current mantra of the Left is that women will now be denied contraception and are going to die. That’s BS and Alitos opinion clearly spells out other ways for those few women impacted by this to get their contraception.

If Obama does what the Supreme Court has said he can do, he completely undermines the position taken by his own supporters and shows it to just be hollow rhetoric.

Yes, Congress cannot be compelled to fund anything if it chooses not to.

the petulant manchild POS is not happy. Too bad.

Has the house ever tried or is it possible for them to make an application to the SC for an injunction to stop him from taking an extra legal action, which he says he will do?

Lastly, one thing that gnaws on me, and it is not an issue here, is people saying we have co equal branches of government. Any reading of the Federalist Papers shows there was no attempt to do that when the government was framed. Rather, the voice of the people was to be supreme and that voice speaks through the Congress.

Not only that, but they are saying the Hobby Lobby decision will bring back Jim Crow and slavery. Not making that up. Thats what they are actually saying.

America is infected with a fatal case of Normalcy Bias and willful cognitive dissonance when it comes to the fact that Americans live under a Dictatorship via a MarxoFascist Oligarchy.

The longer they abide it - the harder it will be to overcome it or survive it.

It's a good thing so many people sat out the 2012 election rather than vote for a Mormon because otherwise we wouldn't have such a fine, dedicated, fascist SOB as President to save us from the rule of law.

Surely, no FReeper “thinks” that the very same Treasury that receives billions in income tax payments every single day, and that sells billions of IOUs every single day, will say:

“Gee, we can’t spend ANY of this money unless the House of Representatives PERMITS us to”.

Yeah, that really isn’t a biggie for Obammie. He’ll just “borrow” some of the Supreme Court’s authority and do as he damn well pleases. Constitution? Obama doesn’t need no stinken Constitution. Dictators usually don’t.

I wouldn't be so sure. Obama knows that it takes several years before one of his Executive Orders finally makes it onto a court docket to be challenged in court. He's simply going to issue EO after EO in a fit of manchild rage for the next two and a half years.

In the meantime, good ol' Johnboy Boehner had a lawsuit ready to file. Gee, don't we feel so much better now knowing that Boehner's gonna file a lawsuit instead of IMPEACHING Obama's ass like he should?

The Narcissist is not pleased. Hold on to your hats, folks. It’s going to get crazier. Read about Narcissist Rage and Narcissistic Injury:
http://samvak.tripod.com/journal86.html

Narcissism, Psychopathy and Evil: http://mindexpressions.wordpress.com/narcissism-psychopathy-evil/

“A person who is truly narcissistic will respond with extreme anger if s/he receives a challenge to her ego (an ego that is both fragile, and strongly defended). This response may look like an overblown rage fit, following a minor slight; or it may take the form of a cold vindictiveness, administered by acts of retaliation. These responses can be very shocking, even frightening, to the person who unwittingly triggered or evoked the narcissistic injury (by getting in the way of the narcissist’s plans, for example, or by displaying a lack of full approval and appreciation for the narcissist’s brilliant ideas).”

In the words of one lib I know, “Those mean republicans have been blocking Obama forever, just what he is supposed to do??”

My response of “FOLLOW THE LAW, and the United States Constitution” didn’t sink in with it. The TV programming is just too strong, and this is a well-educated person that should have known better.

I wish people would calm down about these 'executive order's' they are meaningless.

No President can create a law with executive action, no American is required to follow it!

Ben Shapiro of Breitbart nailed it.

Breitbart: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/03/16/Obama-con-law-III

Back when President Obama was lecturer Obama at the University of Chicago Law School, he gave final exams in constitutional law . . .

“This presents a question: is there a constitutional right to cloning?” . . . So here’s what we’ve learned: Obama believes that the right to privacy should encompass everything up to and including cloning; he thinks that religious morality must be struck down by courts when implemented in law, even though it is supported by thousands of years of tradition; he believes that the state has no interest in family formation; he wants the state to implement morality only when it is his morality.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/03/14/Obama-Con-Law-1996-I

“The question deals with a hypothetical lesbian couple that wants to have a baby. Their state prevents health providers from providing infertility treatments for unwed couples; the couple’s state-provided healthcare therefore refuses them coverage for such procedures” . . . Here’s what we learn from this answer: Obama’s an extreme legal leftist. He thinks that banning infertility treatment for unwed couples is akin to sterilizing them. He thinks that there is no connection between childbearing and childrearing and the integral value of marriage. He thinks that arguments about “tradition” are troubling. And he believes that all judges rule according to their experiences – which goes a long way toward explaining his love for Sonia Sotomayor, whose “wise Latina” experiences may shape her judicial reasoning, according to her own admission.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/03/15/Obama-con-law-II

“This question concerns a fictional “Mayor Dudley Duright,” the first African-American mayor of Wazoo City. The population of the city is 50 percent black and 50 percent white, and highly segregated” . . . Lecturer Obama believed deeply in Critical Race Theory – so much so that he advocated creative legal strategies to argue Critical Race Theory into law. He thought that facially neutral statutes were discriminatory thanks to the racism of the system. He even argued that the people of the states be stripped of their power to change local law, if such changes cut against narrow minority interests.

To paraphrase him during both elections: Energy prices will necessarily skyrocket. If you open a coal plant I’ll shut it down. I’ll fight for national healthcare. I will fundamentally change America. I will sand with muslims.

obama told us exactly what he was going to do to this country. The GOPe coli didn’t stop him.
