Obama: 'The Problem Is..I'm Not The Emperor of The United States'

In a Google hangout last evening, President Barack Obama explained that his problem is that he's "not the emperor of the United States":

"This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency," said Obama. "The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed."

The tradition of each President

Expanding executive power has really started to bite us.

Executive powers have gotten out of control.

Where is the Supreme Court when you need it?

Chief Justice Burger's court nailed Nixon's ass to the wall when he tried to claim executive privilege over Watergate and the White House tapes.

Does Chief Justice John Roberts have the balls? Probably not I'd say.

A 'strict constructionist' Justice (of whom William Rehnquist was the first in SCOTUS) will always rule for the state over the individual unfortunately.

Gone are the days when Justices were appointed by merit (such as Hugo Black) instead of by party affiliation.

Yeah, okay.....

"We have certain obligations to enforce the laws that are in place"


Why doesn't he start by enforcing the Constitution. It's that OATH you took when you were sworn in ASSHAT!

Aren't there like a metric shit-ton of immigration laws

He's specifically decided not to enforce?

I hate this liar with every fiber of my being.

That's just it

He decides to create new unconstitutional laws to enforce such as oBUMacare, while at the same time ignoring other ones. Illegal aliens as INVITED GUESTS at his state of address - really???

Lies, Lies, and More Lies

From Both Parties!

We've Never enforced border laws, border/drug laws by the BOOK.

It's all been done for political achievement.

Dictator in Chief

So why does Obomba act like Dictator in Chief with Executive Orders and threats of them unless Congress acts as he wishes?

Bush said it too, remember?

W said: "if this were a dictatorship things were a heck of a lot easier, of course only if I were the dictator, ha ha ha..."

Power corrupts, absolute power...

Ego maniacs! - Surely they should never be allowed to hold positions like this - Everyone suffers..No?

The lower we sink, the greater the despotism..

"The Constitution was made solely for a moral people, when the people cease to be moral, the Constitutio is of "NO EFFECT"

I'd say yeah, you got a real problem on your hands

And as you said in 2008: The problem with the constitution is that it says what you can't do. But it doesn't say what you can do. Yeah, I think you've got a real problem on your hands. The problem is, that pesky old document. Actually, you're problems are mounting.

As the emperor walks around w/no clothes... Who does he ...

think he's kidding us? We all know he does, in fact, think he is the emperor. He just doesn't feel the draft on his a$$ as he is hanging it out for all to see!

"Unintended undocumented

"Unintended undocumented immigrants?" Did I hear that right?

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

Yes, that's what she said.

I guess that's what they're now calling the children brought here by parents who enter this country without permission. In California, we feed, house, school- primary through college, and give medical & immunization aid all for free to their children but not mine. I know some think there should be no borders but until we stop being a welfare state and a welfare nation, I want this to stop.

Who cares

they all say it. remember this?
