Obama to Expand Use of Executive Power and Bypass Congress More

No surprise!! Just Reality!!


“We can’t wait.”

That’s the phrase that President Obama has made popular recently. It’s meant as a shot at Congress — a Congress the president believes is slow to act on his policies. The phrase has also been used to justify the president’s increasing using of executive orders and signing statements. And now, the New York Times reports, it’s a phrase we could be hearing a lot more of as the president is looking to expand his use of executive powers.


He can't wait because he know he either knows he won't win or he is planning for his dangerous lame duck term.

Hypocrisy in action... Remember when??


That might not be too surprising given the president’s recent action. But consider: Obama criticized George W. Bush for his use of executive powers during the last election. The Times explains:

As a senator and presidential candidate, he had criticized George W. Bush for flouting the role of Congress. And during his first two years in the White House, when Democrats controlled Congress, Mr. Obama largely worked through the legislative process to achieve his domestic policy goals.

But increasingly in recent months, the administration has been seeking ways to act without Congress. Branding its unilateral efforts “We Can’t Wait,” a slogan that aides said Mr. Obama coined at that strategy meeting, the White House has rolled out dozens of new policies — on creating jobs for veterans, preventing drug shortages, raising fuel economy standards, curbing domestic violence and more.

Each time, Mr. Obama has emphasized the fact that he is bypassing lawmakers.


The warning from the insiders !!


“Aides say many more such moves are coming,” the Times adds. “Not just a short-term shift in governing style and a re-election strategy, Mr. Obama’s increasingly assertive use of executive action could foreshadow pitched battles over the separation of powers in his second term, should he win and Republicans consolidate their power in Congress.”

Does Obama feel like he has been backed into a corner??

Straight from the horses mouth an official "We Can't Wait" Campaign for cryin' out loud. Oh the urgency... Oh the crises... Just like the contrived crisis that forced Obamacare onto the nation.


We Can’t Wait

President Obama is not letting congressional gridlock slow
our economic growth.

"Without a doubt, the most urgent challenge that we face right now is getting our economy to grow faster and to create more jobs…. we can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won’t act, I will."

- President Barack Obama, October 24, 2011


There is even a flippin' video for those of his supporters "who can't read good" All to support the middle class

No No Neo Obamas not fascist at all!

Uh wait a minute sounds like a fascist dictatorship to me.



"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. "


Said by the biggest fascist this nation has ever known FDR until the current POTUS.

I swear, I can't even stand to see him on the news anymore...makes me sick to my stomach. He hates our Constitution he swore to uphold. He sees our Constitution as the only thing keeping him in what little check he's kept in now.

He needs to be brought up on charges of treason. I don't understand how anyone can keep voting for him. I even saw on the news this morning, some of his really big campaign contributors have scaled way back, or not donating as before.

When he starts pissing off the major contributors, and doesn't care...that's when he starts really scaring me...


Only a dictator doesn't care, the way he doesn't care....

Probably because congress can't get out of its own way.. Somebody's gotta get things done in Washington. It's called leadership

I hear ya. Look at all the socialisms they put up on us. Billionaires paying huge tax rates right now. 900 percent. Poor guys. Mitt should pick George for VP. I miss our old friend. True Patriot right there.

Let's triple down on Republican freedom. Give them full reigns.

Here's an idea. How about we take the monetary issue out of government and limit the personal wealth of political candidates since the wealthy have always proven that increasing their wealth while in office is priority! We can go one step further by putting a cap on personal earnings while holding public office as well.

If monetary gain is removed from politics, then it stands to reason that the rich will no longer continue to get richer and the poor no longer to get poorer!

I say we kick them all out...Democans and Republicrats and elect people with an (A) behind their name to represent and serve us. The only way any of this will stop is when we are finally able to stop the tyranny of a 2 party system and have people whom consider themselves Americans not democans or republicrats that are willing to not "interpret" the constitution but to abide by it.

The current system of democans and republicrats is nothing more than an elaborate play of "Good politician, bad politician" that they play in an attempt to make us think they are serving us when in reality it is all just smoke and mirrors. They are in league with each other, laughing at us everyday while they use the power of our police state to force us into submission.

No sir. How are the wealthy supposed to corrupt our politicians? I won't stand for that. I love corporations and billionaires. It's their right to spend their billions of profits made on Chinese slave labor to buy off politicians.

I'm voting all Republicans this November. I'm just hoping that if we cut billionaire and corporate taxes, it will trickle down to me. I can't be wealthy unless the wealthy have more wealth to pass on to me. That's how they became wealthy in the first place, by sharing their wealth.

When will the sith reveal himself? lol I can't help but think of Senator Palpatine when I think of President Obama. My only question is will TPTB support his fascist takeover when he makes his move. Based on all FEMA's activities I say yes, they will.
