The United States Constitution divides the United States Government up into 3 separate but equal branches, legislative, executive, and judicial. This is something that as a supposed Constitutional Scholar, Barack Obama should be well aware of. However, his actions, taken as POTUS, give no indication that he is aware of this at all.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has told Senate Democrats he plans to use his executive authority to act in 2014 when Congress stands in his way.
Obama met with senators from his own party Wednesday at the White House. The White House says Obama and Democrats discussed proposals to raise the minimum wage and efforts to pass a comprehensive immigration overhaul. Education initiatives and jobs measures were also on the agenda.
The White House says Obama wants to work with Congress to make progress, but will also act on his own to get things done.
The meeting was the first such session of 2014 and comes two weeks before Obama is set to deliver his State of the Union address.
The senators left the White House without speaking to reporters.
The inescapable conclusion here, is that Obama doesn’t give a rat’s ass what the United States Constitution legally requires, and finds the other two co-equal branches of the United States Government to be irrelevant and impotent. Speaker of the House John Boehner, responded by saying.
President Obama says he has a pen and a phone he can use to bypass Congress. Pens and phones are nice, but we have the Constitution…
Hey John, the most powerful and effective weapon in the Universe, is utterly worthless in the hands of a coward and traitor unwilling to actually use it. You have proven yourself to be both a coward and a traitor, time for you to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up, if you had the testicular fortitude of a 10 year old boy you would have filed Articles of Impeachment against Obama a long time ago over “Operation Fast and Furious” or any of his dozens of other illegal actions that clearly rise to the level of High Crimes and Misdemeanors.
Oh, and Bonehead Boehner saying that he (Congress) has the constitution tragically reminds me of ” The Mystery Man” in Frank Zappa’s “Cosmik Debris”..
“BUT I GOT A KRISTL BOL!”, he said
An’ held it to the light
So I snatched it
All away from him
Yes, I am inclined to think that Obama has already snatched the Constitution away from Congress and the American people, John Boehner and the entire rest of Congress were no more than the same class and manner of dope peddling snake oil salesmen that Frank Zappa’s Mystery Man was, to nearly identical results.
