President Obama is weighing executive actions after the Supreme Court ruled against ObamaCares contraception mandate.

The emperor is not pleased.
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?
I’m sure Boner is readying his pen for a strongly worded letter.
The emperor is not pleased.
The Child is not pleased.
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.
Your ‘hashtags’ do not frighten us. Bring it on.
Not that Boner would, but could he?
Our guys could be stronger, but at least they’re not monsters like Obama and his paid goons.
president mom jeans is not pleased.
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.
I think GOP-e coli is an appropriate term for the RINO pathogens in Congress.
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.
Is he any more brave than we are?
We just shake our fists at the screen and grit our teeth.
The current mantra of the Left is that women will now be denied contraception and are going to die.
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.
/sarc, just in case it's needed
Since he won’t abide by the Constitution, he needs to be relieved of his job which is supposed to uphold the Constitution.
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”.
Just who is going to “relieve” him of this position? The HOR and Senate? Sure - when hell freezes over.
This is just for show, playing to the base and trying to revive the “war on women” meme.
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?
I like it!!
“The White House swiftly called on Congress to enact a legislative fix but realistically knows lawmakers arent about to act.”
Glad to see the WH can act swiftly on the really important issues./s
The Narcissist is not pleased. Hold on to your hats, folks. It’s going to get crazier. Read about Narcissist Rage and Narcissistic Injury:
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 narcissists plans, for example, or by displaying a lack of full approval and appreciation for the narcissists brilliant ideas).”
This is a fight I would like to see him pick.
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.
No President can create a law with executive action, no American is required to follow it!
First you'll have to get him out of the bar and sober him up.
Ben Shapiro of Breitbart nailed it.
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 heres what weve 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.
“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 couples state-provided healthcare therefore refuses them coverage for such procedures” . . . Heres what we learn from this answer: Obamas 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.
“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.
Obama ran as a moderate and he’s governing as a dictator wannabee. What color is the sky in your world?
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.
He will piss and moan until after the 2014 election. Then no one will care or remember. It’s good for the “War on Women” meme.
How about if the bastards pay for their own birth control?
