Obama adm--a lesson in tyranny?

This administration is abusive enough when it acts outside its constitutional authority, but it is even more tyrannical when it affirmatively thwarts the express will of the Congress on matters within the legislative domain.

When Congress denied Obama authority to transfer money to the International Monetary Fund, he did so anyway, issuing an executive order promising to give that body $140 billion for redistribution to Third World countries.

Now he's made another mockery of bipartisanship and the Constitution in making six recess appointments, including two people so objectionable that a near supermajority of Democratic senators wouldn't confirm them: James Cole as deputy attorney general, whose lax position in the war on terror is disturbing, and Francis J. Ricciardone Jr. as ambassador to Turkey.

Meanwhile, Obama's Environmental Protection Agency is gearing up to engage in a defiant end run around Congress by attempting to impose cap-and-trade-type regulations by administrative fiat after Obama's failed attempt to shove this nightmarish disaster through Congress.

It obviously doesn't matter to these zealots that an overwhelmingly Democratic Congress couldn't pass cap and trade or that the Clean Air Act gives them no authority to regulate so-called greenhouse gas emissions. It doesn't matter that their proposed regulatory blitzkrieg would further damage an already anemic and precarious economy.

    He is really REALLY pushing it..he has already pushed enough with just cramming the HC bill down our throats (the majority didn't want his bill) ..cap and trade would be a flipping nightmare! ..If he keep this up he better expect backlash because it will come.

  • "Fundamental Transformation," was promised; on that part, there always was. complete "transparency".
    It's just that most people had no idea, that so many Marxist's had been trolling and were now in the position to takeover our country...

  • I guess this is part of the answer to your question of; "What did Obama mean by "fundamentally Transform" America?"

  • He treats the Congress as if they are an annoyance especially now that he no longer has control of the House. Oh, I know Pelosi was 'in charge' but that put him in control. He doesn't believe in the US Constitution which he swore to defend. He taught a class on due process at The University of Chicago which makes him think he knows more about the Constitution than the average bear. Many of us can read and comprehend. The US Constitution isn't that hard to understand. He is treating the vetting process as a joke because he knows his extremists won't pass the vetting. I am ready for 1-5-12 and then 11-2012!!!!!

    The President is within his legal and constitutional rights and is doing nothing other Presidents have not done. Mommom is quite right , use of the word tyranny reflects a paranoia all too common to the ultra conservatives these days. I don't think anyone is afraid of the ' Big Bad Palin ', Lori. She is only a comedy act .
