How does congress feel about this?

NYT SATURDAY: White House officials are searching for ways for Obama to 'use executive powers to advance energy, environmental and other policy priorities'

He is trying to usurp the role of congress. Kind of reminds me of Chavez.

  • After a bipartisan furor in Congress last year, Mr. Obama stopped issuing such signing statements, but aides said last month that he still reserves the right to ignore sections of bills he considers unconstitutional if objections have been lodged previously by the executive branch.


    Like he would know!  Most of the bills are unconstitutional!  Like Carpy said, he's starting to sound like Chavez.  Or, if that is not classy enough, he's starting to act like Napoleon.  And he WILL meet his Waterloo.

  • You must agree sweet, since you could not justify what he is doing. Congress is starting to wake up though. His own party is starting the "you lie" comments now too.

    Litigators have an old argument:


    When the law’s on your side, argue the law.


    When the facts are on your side, argue the facts.


    When neither’s on your side, pound the table.


    The last line is typical of liberals.
