Of Course: Obama Threatens to Assume More Power, Promising a "Year of Action" With or Without Congress

The more unpopular a President becomes, and the less support he finds in Congress, the more unilateral executive law-making authority flows to him. It's in the Constitution.

What, you didn't know that the Constitution imposes checks and balances on popular Presidents but gifts unpopular ones with untrammeled executive power? It's in one of the Secret Clauses written in invisible ink. I think Nick Cage mentioned it in National Treasure 2.

President Barack Obama put lawmakers on notice during his first official cabinet meeting of the year, telling his top deputies that his 2014 agenda will move forward whether Congress votes for it or not.

...


One of the things Ill be emphasizing in this meeting, he said, is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that were providing Americans the kind of help that they need.

Ive got a pen and Ive got a phone, the president asserted, and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.

All "those jobs that our businesses are creating." It's a river of bullshit with an unconstitutional, anti-American threat to usurp the law-making power at the end of it.
