Agree, The "president" is prancing about in the world's progressive/socialist/fascist mecca,...
he is glowing in the heat of the entertainment industry's efforts to destroy our country's Constitution...

Precisely...

A hurricane named The Tea Party came to save America.

No mercy shall be shown...


See this is why what you refer to as "supporters" come. Not so much to support Obama but to refute dumb s# like this. You're delusional if you think that the Tea Party is "saving America." It's just another front and an ugly one at that.

If he's so concerned with the legality of EO's and attributing every "lawless" action committed by government to sitting presidents, why does he constantly venerate Reagan and give Bush a pass?

Why? Because this is just political theater. Ted Cruz is no anti-establishment crusader he's been groomed from adolescence — participating in the Free Market Education Foundation's Austrian economics indoctrination program at 13 on to Princeton then Harvard for his law degree (real salt of the Earth, anti-establishment s# here), clerked for Rehnquist, private council for Boehner, adviser to Bush, Assoc Deputy AG, policy planner for the FTC, and then back to be the lawyer's lawyer and now the politician's politician. He's as establishment as a person can be.

Are you Jewish or gay?
They hate Ted Cruz because he is Christian as our founding fathers were and Americans mostly are.

Your from OUTSIDE "dude"!


Some of the founding fathers were Christian but not all. And even the Christian founders were smart enough to leave religion out of politics.
Besides Cruz isn't a natural born citizen so him being a president is a no no.
People don't hate Cruz after all how can you hate a man that can't even finish green eggs and ham. You don't hate him you pity him.

Don't derail this thread by attacking the messenger.

Start a thread if you want to bash Ted and the Tea Party...

Try focusing on the 76 reasons Ted put forth showing how CRIMINAL AND CORRUPT this President is...and how he kowtows with those that back and promote his CRIMINAL efforts...

Exactly, I suspect he is known by staff and they know what to do.

The Founders were mostly deists at best, claiming they were Christians is revisionist quasi-history. Americans currently are majority Protestant but the fastest growing demographic is unaffiliated or non-religious.

Obama's Hollywood façade has completely crumbled.

It makes no sense to me to focus on the puppet instead of the hand behind it.

Look instead at the machinery BEHIND the curtain.

There was a good reason that they (our founding fathers) set up 3 different branches of government.

Congress and the Senate are there to not only represent each individual state, but to also create laws, change laws or amend laws.

There is a reason it is called the "legislative branch" of the government.

The president is suppose to enforce those laws. He (or she) can veto a bill instead of signing it into law.......but then congress and the senate can still push it if they so desire.

Then of course we have the Supreme Court which is suppose to decide if a law is constitutional or not.

The president is not suppose to be able to whip out his pen, and make changes to a existing law. He is NOT the legislative branch. He is suppose to enforce ALL of laws....not pick and choose which ones he wants to enforce, and which ones he does not want to enforce.
He can introduce a new bill and ask congress to pass it into law......and use that to change existing laws......

But again, he is not suppose to be able to just change things on a whim.

There was a very good reason for having the system we have (or should I say "had" in past tense?). It was to ensure that no one person ended up having so much power, that they end up literally ruling.

Any president that does this (changes laws simply by make a decree, or adding to the existing laws, basically saying: Make It So), is violating his oath of office. He is NOT executing his responsibilities of the presidency, but is instead breaking his oath he took.

Obama is not the only one (however, he has done this much more than any other president that I can find, yes even W. Bush) as each president since Washington has always seemed to increase the power of the executive branch.

This is why the president should not have the power of executive order. It gets worse with each president going back as far as you'd like. Executive Orders should be very limited, and only used to enforce existing laws, as they are written, that have been passed by congress and signed into law already.

This is not grade school. Once a law is passed and signed, the president should not get a "do over". That gives one person WAY too much power.

It's scary to think that a president can pick and choose which laws to follow based on what his personal preferences


You are aware that no one can enforce all laws in existence and that the President and the Attorney General always decide what laws they are going to focus on prosecuting, right??? There are always laws that get enforced and laws that don't, at every level, from the city to the White House. I think this is just more republican ignorance.

And how anyone could think that Obama is worse than Bush in regards to flaunting the law is beyond me.

Not big fans of free speech?

I'm off topic because I point out that Ted Cruz is a phony radical and this report is just another stunt to garner some easy cred for his carefully crafted persona?

Let's look at some of the gems on this list:


Refused to prosecute violation of drug laws with certain mandatory minimums.

Extended federal marriage benefits by recognizing, under federal law, same-sex marriages created in a state that allows same-sex marriage even if the couple is living in a state that doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage.

Allowed immigrants in the U.S. illegally, who are relatives of military troops and veterans, to stay in the country and get legal status

Granted a “hardship” exemption from the individual mandate for people whose health plans were canceled because their plans weren’t Obamacare compliant.


Win. Win. Win. Win.


Issued signing statements, refusing to enforce parts of congressional-enacted statutes.


Guess who really kicked off signing statements? Ronald Reagan. He signed more a year than Obama has signed in his entire presidency. Bush signed more than Obama and Clinton signed more than either of them.


Before Reagan, the Presidency had only ever issued a total of 75 signing statements in almost 200 years, yet with the guidance of his Attorney General Edwin Meese III, Reagan "launched a concerted policy to start to use signing statements as a means of reinforcing the executive's message and consolidating its power."

source


Falsely portrayed the Benghazi terrorist attack as a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim YouTube video, and then lied about the White House’s involvement.

I actually read through all 100 pages of the PDF of emails judicialwatch.org obtained. This should read, "I'm falsely portraying the content of the e-mails..."

There are actually a few items on here of concern but most of it's just filler and notice that he doesn't question the legality of anything with support from the right?

You can go on with your orgiastic Ted Cruz messianic worship now.

Different puppet...

Same master.

There's a very good reason they all look the same.

In reality it's a Punch & Judy show:

Yes, and if you look closely at that picture, you and I will see that there is no discussion possible, just "who yells the loudest!".


This is a discussion, not a contest. You (well, the other participants in this thread) are led by your nose to bark at the other "dogs".

Calm down, its just a thread on a website.

If you take enough statements form anyone out of context, sooner or later you can make most any case against them you wish.

Every time I someone starts talking about how Ted Cruz is a possible presidential candidate, I can't help but wonder how soon it will be when the Tea Party asks for his birth certificate.

You do know "he was not born here!" So he can't be "one of us!"

It should read:

76 things Obama did that I don't like OR that I suspect he did OR that I think will win me support in 2016!

The right has cried wolf SO many times (as most of the items on this list show) that I have no interest in what they say. They've been unsuccessful in toppling Obama's presidency and it's their own fault for going after EVERY little thing they think might gain some traction, whether it's true or not. They have zero credibility.

I suppose the best way to look at the list and this Presidency is "precedent is being set".

Eventually Repubs will be in office again, the pendulum will swing, and then ALL kinds of nasty laws can be written from the oval office.

And on the bright side all the liberals will agree that it is the President's right to do that


win, win, win

We jut have to survive the next few years hahaha

Really?

Obama actually did those things and they are actually unconstitutional or illegal.

The KoolAid is still strong with this one.
