His Heinous says he’s going to push the limits on presidential power as far as he can go during the next two years.
The Dictatorial Pirate in the White House actually told the Huffington Puffington Post (H/T Rush) that he intends to expand federal power “By hook or by crook” noting that if Congress will not work with granting his agenda, he intends to impose it by decree.
While Obama hoists his red flag to prowl the sea of a once free society, the yellow-belly barnacled scalawags in Congress cower in fear of his hammer and sickle. The GOP Establishment operates as Obama’s Boatswain of the Ship of State, targeting Conservatives in their own ranks to force them to walk the plank in propaganda-infested waters. The USS Economy plunges to the bottom after being scuttled on orders from the Manchurian Pirate and open warfare has been declared in the waters of fundamental change. The Praetorian Media blockades the truth and information as they help their captain hook a clueless populace into accepting their plunder and subjugation to lawless tyranny. The Congress and the courts yap for the cameras over the burning hulks of the USS Constitution and the USS Separation Of Powers, but run their mates to lick his backside every time Obama hands them evidence that he is lawless and acting outside of his authority. For there be the promise of treasures in the plunder of what is left of the middle class and wealthy that Hook and Crook offer to those who sail with him.
The Federal government is become nothing but a pirate fleet with an evil captain at the helm. The Master gunners of the EPA, IRS and other alphabets have run out their canon upon the gun ports and as Obama swings the ship of Fundamental Transformation past his targets, cannonade will erupt broadside to cripple what is left of the USS Bill of Rights. There by plenty of dogs scrubbing’ Obama’s poop decks for a hoped-for share of the treasure they are plundering from We The People.
President Barack Obama says he’s going to push the limits on presidential power as far as he can go during the last two years of his tenure.
“Where [elected Republicans in Congress] are not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector,” he said in a friendly interview with The Huffington Post.
“By hook or by crook,” he added.
Obama said his big-government push would “make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”
In practice, Obama’s agenda includes more progressive control over peoples’ salaries, education practices and the energy companies. Each expansion means that state and local governments plus large and small companies will cooperate with regulators to push progressives’ goals, instead of trying to please Americans voters, taxpayers and free-market consumers.
Despite the huge victory delivered by GOP voters and swing voters in November, it is not clear if the GOP leaders can — are will even try — to block Obama’s plan.
The Constitution says the White House can only execute Congress’ laws, not rewrite them.
Obama’s supported by 46 senators, most of the established media, plus a progressive and ethnic coalition that comprises roughly 40 percent of the electorate.
On the other side, the GOP is split, and the mainstream media is relatively small.
Half the party consists of a small-government core that wants to curb progressives’ government-magnified power over Americans’ economic and social lives.
But the GOP leadership, plus a large chunk of legislators, most lobbyists and campaign donors,, are reluctant to rally voters against Obama’s big-government agenda. Instead, they prefer to make deals that provide short-term economic benefits to business groups and to wealthy donors.
Since November, the divided GOP has failed to reduce Obama’s progressive power grabs in the health sector, the energy sector, the education sector, the Internet and the immigration system.
In many cases, judges and GOP governors are more effective in blocking Obama’s agenda.
