Obama's Happy Hour: All I'm Trying to Do is "Fix Things" Through Unconstitutional, Lawless Executive Power Grabs, and My Opponents Call Me a "Tyrant"

He literally makes mockery of the Constitution.

He is in fact trying to "fix things" -- elections, for example. His latest unilateral rewrite of American law is so transparently a purely political one that even left-leaning media says so. From the Hill:

he Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.

As early as this week, according to two sources, the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet ObamaCare’s minimum coverage requirements.

Prolonging the “keep your plan” fix will avoid another wave of health policy cancellations otherwise expected this fall.

The cancellations would have created a firestorm for Democratic candidates in the last, crucial weeks before Election Day.

He'd previously unilaterally, unconstitutionally delayed this mandate until January 15, 2015, in order to keep it from going into effect until after the November midterms. Only later did they realize that a January 15, 2014 date mean that notifications of cancelled plans would be going out October or so, just before the elections.

I remember discussing this on the podcast, and someone saying "This is going to hurt Obama," the notifications going out in October. And I said something like, "Oh that's not going to happen. Steal little, steal big."
