Once Again, Obama Suggests
That Laws Don’t Apply to Him

Weekly Standard, by Jeffrey H. Anderson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/7/2013 5:16:23 AM

President Obama has grown fond of saying that he’s “not a dictator,” “not a king,” and “not the emperor,” but is instead “the president.” Whether his tendency to clarify a seemingly obvious point reveals his inner desires or not, his actions in a variety of ways suggest that he doesn’t think the president shares his fellow citizens’ ongoing obligation to obey the law. To the contrary, he seems to view the president as being somewhat above the law. The latest example involves Obama’s legal obligation to submit a budget by the first Monday in February. We’ve now passed

Why do authors HEDGE their words when they criticize the President. If his ACTIONS supercede or circumvent law, then he is above the law, or better , not obeying or breaking the law. He is not SUGGESTING, he is DOING.

His enablers are afraid he´ll be Nixon, Hoover and Carter all rolled into one arrogant scold. Please change the subject. Is there any aspirin factory out there to bomb?
You know what the woman said on Election Day: "you could bounce a quarter off that butt." He´ll look great in a bomber jacket, just like Billy Clinker did when it got hot in ´98.

When the Attorney General does your bidding, why shouldn´t you be above the law, right?

The next GOP president should just rule by executive order. Simply bypass Congress and turn the Country into a conservative paradise. After all, precedent is being set.

It´s clear to these eyes that Obama does indeed want to be a dictator or a king -- either would be his rightful place at the top, he believes.

Every time he uses either word, he desensitizes his LoFo and the media to the very concept of changing the Constitution to allow him to have total autonomy, to actually rule as a dictator or a king. His public use of the words is no accident. It is meant to desensitize.

After all, he could bypass all obstaces, like Congress and the Constitution and do everything he´s always wanted to do -- through absolute power.

Do not underestimate Obama´s use of these words. It is calculating, devious and sinister.

You are never above the law if you can manage to appoint an Attorney General who simply affirms that everything you do IS the law.

Obama knows that the other two branches of our Government won´t do a thing so he can do what he wants. Like Bill Cosby said if you disagree with Obama you are a racist. I just wish our first black President wasn´t such a thug, white hating, America as founded hating community organizer.

How are ´high crimes and misdemeanors´ defined? Anyone know? Certainly, this legal obligation not met, time after time, qualifies as a misdemeanor of the highest office in the land..... ???

There is certainly dissatisfaction evident now amongst our Republicans, and even disillusionment amongst some Democrats (but don´t ask me who). But sadly, I doubt there is any sentiment toward impeachment unless he´s caught on video with a little boy or a dead girl. (And even then, no guarantee that George Bush didn´t force him to do it. /s)

The more he mentions that he´s not a dictator, not a king or emperror, but ´only´ the president and thus limited in what he can ´´do for´´ his peeps, I believe he is building desire in his ignorant masses for him to become that ´benevolent´ dictator, a la Hugo.

Socialism is so evil.... so inherently wicked. To make everyone equal, is to break down and destroy half the populace. Evil.

I seem to remember that when he says "I am not a king or dictator" he adds the word unfortunately to the sentence. So, as #7 points out, his minions will get the idea that being a king or dictator would be better so he can take better care of them. As Obama phone lady screamed, "he gave us Obama phone and he gonna do more". Bless her "English is not my first language" heart.

The question I ask is why isn´t anyone holding him accountable? If producing a budget is a law and not just a suggestion, why aren´t the proper authorities forcing his hand? If nothing is done, he is getting away with flaunting the law because he can. I thought in this country no one was above the law. Apparently that does not apply to the boy king.

Remember when he told La Raza that he couldn´t do anything about immigration because he wasn´t a dictator and had to go through congress? What did he do just in time for the elections last year? He went AROUND congress and gave special rights to a million or so illegals by executive order.

When a dime store magician holds up a deck of cards and says "This is an ORDINARY deck of cards", the best response from the audience would be "Who asked?". The reason the magician is making a point of the cards being ordinary is likely due to the fact that they are not.

Same with Obama´s words here. When he says he is not a dictator or a king... WHO ASKED? Likely, he is betraying his real inward mindset in much the same manner that the poorly trained magician does.

Another Amen! to #7.

Problem: from the beginning with the first infraction or disregarding of Law, when the media praised the audacity, either vocally or by NOT reporting the story, he was further emboldened (started during the campaign, of course).

People too busy with family and working to put food on the table, to pay adequate attention to the deeds of a highly activist government; people too uncurious to be bothered to THINK, too credulous because of an adolescent view of government; people too ignorant of history and the progress of totalitarianism --make the descent into tyranny easy AND quick.

Not only does Obozo ignore the laws of the the land, he ignores the unwritten but understood laws of economics. To do economically what is is doing to this country is going to eventually cause a huge drop in the economy of this entire country and as a result every one that lives in it. Including those lo-fo´s who adore the idiot.

I too give kudos to #7. 0bama is indeed calculating, devious and sinister. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool. He has grand plans for this country and they are not good. I´m sure if we were allowed to see everything in his hidden background we would be more horrified than we already are. He is no different than someone like Hugo Chavez and sadly for us he is the president. What an utter travesty.

Even before the 2008 election, I was practically screaming warnings about this "above the law´ attitude of Øbama. He was arrogant and presumptive of specialness even as a candidate. His so-called "blackness" he wore like a badge and arrogantly refused to wear the American flag or to even cover his heart during recitations of the POA or during singing of the Anthem or during parade passing of the flag. This alarmed me to no end. Now, look what he has shown us about his respect for this country and the Constitution.

The President is above the law...He can kill you and if the Senate refuses to prosecute....you are dead and he has a retirement. He can walk up to your child and shoot the child in the head...and if the house of reps will not impeach....there is nothing anyone can do. Of course when the Senate was appointed by the states.....Obama would be prosecuted.

#7, I too agree with you.

He uses the word "dictator" far too often for it to be unintentional. And his lamentations that he must go through Congress (those Republican dolts in the House) serve only to make his base think things would be so much better if he didn´t have to.

He has FAILED in this oath and has shown to be an internal enemy of our country.

Kathleen Sebelius’s Resignation Hands

Kathleen Sebelius is resigning, and Rachel Maddow is right to not be happy about it, not one little bit. For once, I completely agree with Maddow’s analysis. This surprise resignation presents Republicans with an unexpected opportunity to refocus the conversation on Obamacare’s negatives, offers a chance to force vulnerable Senate Democrats to take a hard vote on Obamacare six months before the midterms, and serves to disrupt what had been a positive few days of media spin for the health care law into another conversation about its many failings.

Democrats plan to turn out thousands of African-American voters this fall, in an effort to hold the Senate majority. The challenge is that some of them aren’t yet registered to vote. Which begs the question, after opportunities to elect and re-elect the first black president, why would an African-American choose this year’s midterm elections to finally jump from the sidelines and into the game? This question especially matters given that contests in North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Michigan and Louisiana will help determine control of the Senate. Democratic strategists believe there is low-hanging fruit in the black populations in Arkansas and Louisiana, where Democrats

Four years ago this week, Polish President Lech Kaczynski was killed in a plane crash near the Katyn Forest in Russia where he was flying to honor the 22,000 Polish officers, lawyers, priests and professors slaughtered there by the Soviets 70 years before. Ninety-five other military, political and public figures including his wife died on that plane. One of the more heartbreaking details to emerge was that First

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York Times

President Obama‘s former body man Reggie Love is — ahem — loving life. Specifically, life outside the White House. Thursday, The Mirror spotted him at lunch, dining al fresco at BLT Steak, a short sprint from the White House. If the 32-year-old was ever a tense, stressed out aide in a suit, you wouldn’t know it. He was relaxed, at ease, and sipping lemonade as he chatted away with what looked to be a longtime female friend, possibly a former coworker. So, of course, The Mirror listened in. Love left the Obama Administration in 2011 to earn his MBA at the University of

President Obama met privately Thursday with Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor, amid accusations by her GOP opponent that she’s afraid to be seen in public with the president. A White House aide said Mr. Obama “visited briefly” with Ms. Davis following his remarks at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin to mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. The meeting took place after reporters traveling with Mr. Obama had been moved into vans, so they didn’t witness the meeting. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, the Republican nominee for governor, has publicly dared Ms. Davis to be

In his Senate Foreign Relations Committee testimony last week, Secretary of State John Kerry blamed Israel for the breakdown in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. He argued that an Israeli announcement of 700 new housing units for a neighborhood in Jerusalem were what did in the talks. “Poof, that was sort of the moment,” Kerry said. “We find ourselves where we are.” This is an amazing claim, especially when the housing units are not in a settlement—but are in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, in a location that every Israeli and every Palestinian knows will be part of Israel in

Express Scripts is a giant company (Fortune 100) that manages pharmacies and prescription drug processing.

It has long been recognized that “liberal” and “progressive” are misnomers when it comes to describing American leftists in the 21st Century. They may fancy themselves as forward-thinking but they go back eighty or so years whenever it’s time to craft economic policy and their racial politics gaze backward a half century. Most of the time. At the Civil Rights Summit in Austin this week, there were some prominent Democrats who surveyed the landscape and admitted that things are, in fact, much different now than they were in the early 1960s. Things have changed. That was the message delivered during

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

"She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
