Krauthammer: Dems Will Regret
Allowing Obama’s ‘Lawlessness’
When GOP Returns to Power

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/30/2013 1:34:06 PM

Appearing on Friday night’s On the Record, conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer strongly criticized President Barack Obama for his “cavalier attitude” towards the separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution. “Democrats will rue the day that they allowed all this,” Krauthammer declared. “I’m talking about how the administration, particularly the president, seems to think that he has the right to change duly passed statutes on his own or to suspend parts of laws on his own,” Krauthammer said when asked to clarify his critique of the Obama administration’s “lawlessness.” “The Constitution is pretty clear,” he continued,

Sorry to contradict the esteemed Dr Krauthammer but the ´rats will not regret their actions; the pubbies will be too eager to prove how nice they are.

I have visions of Chuck Schumer rushing towards a microphone and the words "checks and balances" being repeated endlessly - during the Bush administration.

The most dangerous place in WDC was the space between Schumer and a microphone!

With rampant voter fraud and the possible addition of 11 million more lofo voters dependent on the public teat why does Dr. Krauthammer think the Republicans will ever return to power. Welcome to one party rule.

Seriously?

I thought it was a two fold thing ~ get voters who agree with broad party principles; get candidates who have something to offer those voters in terms of policies implementing those principles, then get both to an election.

You need enough voters to win.

In 2004 we had 64 million voters. They had 60.
In 2008 we had 59 million voters. They had 69
In 2012 we had 60 million voters. They had 66

All we need is 2 millon more than 2004, and at the rate they´re dropping, we´ll have 1 million more voters than them.

When you have a substantially Conservative base (I estimate it at 85%) you have to run Conservatives. Running candidates who are a mismatch for the party´s voters makes new voter registration difficult.

The Tea Party, of which I am a proud member, is based on a profound respect for our Constitution. Obama is a Fascist, in that he does not think it necessary or desirable to abide by the constraints of the Constitution.

If and when the Pubbies get back in the White House the Tea Party will insist that the Constitution trumps political payback.

I´m not sure i want the republicans,if they get power back, to be as thuggish as Obama.I mean it would be nice to give the left a taste of their own medicine but I´m more concerned about them restoring a sense of normalcy in the country.I´d be a 100% for abolishing Obamacare and Dodd Frank as well as rolling back EPA regs but those are just common sense things to do so business can flourish again.

The left claims they need this consumer protection agency to avoid another 2008 meltdown but in reality they´re approving the kinds of loans that caused it to begin with.

What will probably happen is that Obama will pack the US Courts and a lot of high level bureaucratic posts with extreme liberals between now and the November 2014 election. Then and only if the Republicans win control of the US Senate, as one of their last acts in while in control of the Senate the Democrats will vote to resend their filibuster rule change to where it was a couple of weeks ago. The Republican leadership has already signaled that they would be happy to go back to the old status quo. So once the rule is changed back the Republicans will leave it that way.

It is just common sense to believe that is what the Democrats will do, as at that time they will be attempting to preserve as much political power as they can for the incoming Democrat Senate minority.

I agree that the Repubs do not have the intestinal fortitude for the job that needs to be done to counter eight years of Marxist rule. We need someone to do exactly what Nobama has been doing but from a conservative point of view. I am all for re-establishing rule of law and decorum and all that, but desperate times call for desperate measures (also knows as SOPs in the libtard playbook). We need to counter what has been done as best we can.

Politics is always shortsighted. The GOP gave lip service to repeal of Obamacare in 2010, and now will "save the best parts." The GOP is led by those working toward amnesty for illegally entering and living in our country. Something is out of whack...and increasingly it appears to be people like me. Who is John Gault?

WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to President Obama’s trip to Europe, the director of the Secret Service, Julia A. Pierson, sat down with the agency’s senior officials to reiterate a message she had focused on during her first year in the job. Although it had been nearly two years since several agents were caught soliciting prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, shortly before Mr. Obama arrived there for a summit meeting, Ms. Pierson said the agency remained under scrutiny. Agents should be reminded, she said, to be on their best behavior during the coming trip to Europe, where Mr. Obama

After a contentious Wednesday hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy threatened to hold the top tax official in contempt of Congress unless he produces disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails by the end of this week. Gowdy spoke with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren about Wednesday’s hearing, where a slew of GOP congressmen tore into Koskinen’s claim that responding to the Oversight committee’s subpoena for Lerner’s emails could take years. “All we want are the emails to or from Lois Lerner — I’m not talking about private taxpayer information.

Even with more than two years left in his term, President Obama’s ability to fill many of his administration’s most important jobs is rapidly diminishing. White House officials are scrambling to reassess their confirmation strategy in the wake of two major setbacks this month: the Senate’s rejection of lawyer Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department’s civil rights division and signs that surgeon general nominee Vivek H. Murthy could go down in defeat as well. On Tuesday, the administration appointed Karl Remón Thompson as acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel — bypassing the Senate confirmation process

A California state senator once lauded for efforts to make government more transparent was arrested by the FBI in San Francisco Wednesday along with a onetime gang leader known as ‘Shrimp Boy.’ State Sen. Leland Yee and Raymond Chow, were taken into custody after a series of raids by federal and gang task force officials, but the charges against them remained undisclosed. Yee is the third Democratic senator to face charges this year. He was scheduled to be arraigned in federal court in San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon.

While Houstonians were enthralled by the massive flames and smoke emanating from an unfinished apartment complex in Montrose, national media outlets turned their attention toward this: A YouTube video surfaced of a construction worker who managed to successfully flee the hellish scene on West Dallas around noon Tuesday. That video has since garnered over half a million views and is being shared around the internet by outlets like Gawker and BuzzFeed. As the fire raged on, the worker jumped from the top floor of the complex to a balcony directly below. When firefighters moved in with a ladder, the worker

For the second week in a row, the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula kept cable news’ coverage Hillary Clinton — who currently holds no office and has not announced a candidacy for one — relatively low. Once again, MSNBC was maintained more of an interest in Clinton in the face of more pressing stories, accounting for considerably more segments and time spent on Clinton — though their numbers last week were still low compared to peak Clinton coverage of last month. Hardball host Chris Matthews alone logged more time on the hypothetical candidate

WASHINGTON —Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to reimburse his campaign more than $16,000 for purchasing holiday gifts from his granddaughter´s jewelry business. The Federal Election Commission sent Reid’s campaign a letter last week asking it to provide more information about payments listed as “holiday gifts” on its 2013 year-end campaign finance report. The filing lists two payments in October 2013 to “Ryan Elisabeth” totaling $16,786.93. A Reid aide confirmed that "Ryan Elisabeth" is the name of a company owned by his granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid. The aide described the gifts as trinkets — coasters, picture frames, jewelry —

U.S. Border Patrol agents, in conjunction with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently disclosed the increasing practice of releasing “low threat” illegal immigrant detainees to address the over-crowding of immigration detention centers in south Texas, according to official confirmation of local reports. One south Texas television station, KRGV, recently reported instances of women and minors claiming to have been recently released from immigration officials with “documents that allow [them] to travel anywhere in the United States.” Released individuals claimed their federal instructions stated they were not legally allowed to work and could be subject to further immigration hearings.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?
