Obama´s first term in office has made our Constitution and Congress irrelevant. It is quite clear that during his second presidential term, Obama will act in a more dictatorial manner issuing new executive orders and harsh anti business regulations.
Obama´s first term in office has made our Constitution and Congress irrelevant. After his inauguration, Obama destroyed our Constitution´s separation of powers and checks and balances provisions by naming radical White House czars with enormous powers who are not subject to congressional oversight or approval of the Senate. One of Obama´s czars was the communist Van Jones, responsible for Green Energy. When his revolutionary past and outrageous past statements came to light, he was forced to resign. However, he continues to work with the Obama administration and recently CNN hired him as a political commentator.
The appointments of these radical czars with as much power as members of the Cabinet were denounced by several Republican senators as unconstitutional. One Democratic senator Harry Bird of West Virginia even wrote a letter to the president pointing out how those appointments violated the Constitution. The Constitution limits the federal government by dividing power among the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. Under a separation of powers, each branch has its unique responsibility, a system that the Founders hoped would prevent any branch of the government from gaining too much power. The Constitution also established a system of checks and balances, whereby each branch of government exercises some control on the others. Unfortunately, Obama has gone beyond an imperial presidency with his illegal power grab.
Obama chooses which laws to enforce and which ones to ignore. He has no respect for the rule of law. The president has criticized the Supreme Court and does not work in a bipartisan way with Congress. As Mitt Romney stated, Obama wants Congress to do it his way or the highway. No other president in our history has shown such blatant disrespect for our Constitution.
Obama displays an arrogant demeanor and acts as if omnipotent in the United States but, in fact, he is impotent abroad with enemy countries such as Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, and others. Obama’s party in Congress has not passed a budget in three years. When the Republican-controlled House of Representative sends a budget bill to the Democratic-controlled Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reed refuses to discuss it and kills the bill. In this manner, President Obama spends as much as he wants. For every dollar that Obama spends, he borrows 42 cents.
It is quite clear that during his second presidential term, Obama will act in a more dictatorial manner issuing new executive orders and harsh anti business regulations. The president will continue to bypass and ignore Congress and violate the separation of powers and the checks and balances clauses of our Constitution. The Republican-dominated House of Representatives needs to address Obama’s repeated violations of our Constitution and, if it continues, the Republicans need to impeach the president. Mr. President you need to understand that the United States of America is not a banana republic and this country is not Venezuela or Cuba! We are a nation of laws and you need to respect those laws and do not forget that you swore to protect and defend our Constitution and not to destroy it.
