Interesting how just 5 years in the White House has changed him. Now he does not want to wait for Congress. Now he wants to take his pen, write executive orders and move on. The amazing thing about this is why he is spending so much time trying to come up with things that he, the President, can do without them instead of really reaching across the aisle.
I guess it was all summarized when he invited the Republicans and of course the Democrats up several years ago and when John McCain was making comments and Obama basically stopped McCain and said ‘John I won, you didn’t’ … I guess this describes where Obama is coming from. In my mind, most of the things that he says he is going to put into law by executive order are Very Small Things.
Obama is going to be challenged in the courts, as he should be, and we should resist as a country any attempt by any president to govern by executive order.
That isn’t why the Constitution was created in the first place. So I am in fact surprised that he took So much time out of the State of the Union to basically talk about how he has the highest authority in the nation.
I guess if candidate Obama was in the audience, he would be jeering and cat-calling but President Obama viewed it as a victory lap.
If you think that this is a ridiculous way to run a government like, comment, share, and subscribe. Please comment on how you think that President Obama should have handled himself and how we can restore sanity in the government.
