Why Not Use Executive Orders, Your Phone & Pen to Seize Trade Powers, Mr. President?
By John W. Lillpop
It would be belly-gushing hilarious were it not so damn pathetic: Barack Obama racing off to the Capitol Building, where the evil Congress resides, hat in hand groveling for votes to pass legislation that would give him additional (and dangerous) powers in global trade talks.
With a last-minute trip to the Capitol, President Barack Obama sought to quell a revolt Friday among House Democrats threatening to torpedo top-priority legislation to strengthen his hand in global trade talks.
Just a fracking moment, patriot!
Is this the same gnarly Marxist who taunted Republicans who objected to his abuse of Executive Power with this snotty rejoinder: "Middle-class families can’t wait for Republicans in Congress to do stuff. So sue me," Obama said.
Is this the same defiant lunatic who argued that he was empowered to use Executive Power without Congress, when he said, “"I've got a pen to take executive actions where Congress won't, and I've got a telephone to rally folks around the country on this mission."
The same “Constitutional Scholar” who mislead, or deliberately lied to, millions of illegal aliens into believing that he, Barack Obama, was above the law and Congress and could, therefore, protect illegal aliens from the law with the simple stroke of a pen?
The same fellow who, after his exalted Executive Orders on immigration were put in abeyance by the courts, announced that the next step would NOT be a direct appeal to the Supreme Court, most likely because of obvious weakness in the arguments?
So why not shut down the Congress, media, and the world by issuing another Executive Order granting yourself unilateral domain over all transactions and laws involving Us trade, Mr. President?
Then jump on your cell phone to announce your latest decree to all concerned parties, the media, and the American people!
WHY not, sir?
We are waiting!
