Yesterday the White House made the following tweet:
“We can’t afford to wait for Congress…and that’s why I’m going ahead without them when I can.” —President Obama
Obama, a person who has made claims to be a US Constitutional law professor, seems to be saying to his opponents if you won’t do what I want you to, I will do them myself. Of course this isn’t the first time he’s mentioned such things.
Take what he said last year to the Times’ Jackie Calmes last July:
“I will take whatever administrative steps that I can in order to do right by the American people.”
In that same interview he said this about his distractors:
“But ultimately, I’m not concerned about their opinions — very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers.”
Ultimately Obama thinks anyone who isn’t as ‘smart’ as he is, their opinion is not worth anything. Such thoughts completely contradict how America became the country it is today, by trying to value everyone. Sure mistakes were made, but its a system I would much rather live in that Obama’s vision of our future.
He might have been a US Constitutional law professor, but it does not mean he truly supports out Constitution. On fact, it seems he has studied our most valued document as a way to go around it rather than work within its limits.
A true leader, with a true cause, can make his opposition see the value of his cause. The problem is history shows Obama’s cause will not be as great as he claims. So instead of working with someone, he digs into a my way is the only way, and I might talk after I’ve gotten everything I want.
I do hope I am wrong, but the path Obama and the democrats are taking the USA down, I don’t like. So I will speak out, which is something I can do thanks to the First Amendment.
I always said to my friends if Bush Jr spend one additional day as President than he was allowed, I would gladly join, or even lead, them in protest. Would a liberal say the same about Obama?
