Obama and His “We Can’t Wait” Campaign

Obama and His “We Can’t Wait” Campaign
Al Ritter

Somehow President Obama has rationalized his use of the Executive Order to be constitutionally legal when he doesn’t agree with Congress. At first he blamed Republicans saying, “Republicans in Congress aren’t paying attention.” Later the president must have realized that just maybe the democrats aren’t “paying attention” either because of their inability to pass even a budget for the last two and a half years.

When President Obama introduced his own budget this year, not one single democrat or republican would even vote for it, leaving Obama to fight his own war of threatened executive order against congress. The president claims that his use of the executive order to bypass the house and senate is perfectly legal per the DOJ.

Really Mr. President? You take the word of Attorney General Eric (fast and furious) Holder over what you already know to be constitutionally illegal? You were a Constitutional law scholar weren’t you?

This constant trampling of the Constitution to merely force your socialistic agenda on America has to stop. The Constitution is not just a suggestion on limiting the power of the federal government, it is LAW, the very same one you will be breaking if you invoke executive order to get your way!

I agree with you 100%. what I don't understand is why the republican leadership does not hold him accountable. All you hear from people like Speaker Boehner and his little minion House Majority Leader Cantor is "The peple of the United States will hold him accountable come this next election". I thought that as our elected representatives, part of their job it was to represent "We The People" and hold him accountable for his actions.
