Robert Byrd Warns Obama About Unconstitutional Power Grabs

February 25, 2009

obamafinger  The longest serving Democrat senator, Robert Byrd, sent a letter to President Obama warning him that he is pushing the constitution’s limits in regards to Obama’s appointment of all of these “czars” to oversee issues that are supposed to be handled by the legislative branch of the government.

In a letter to Obama on Wednesday, Byrd complained about Obama’s decision to create White House offices on health reform, urban affairs policy, and energy and climate change. Byrd said such positions “can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.”

   President Obama has been treading in unconstitutional waters since the very beginning of his presidency, even before he was sworn in. I would add to Robert Byrd’s list of infractions by reminding everybody that under Article 1 Section 6 of the constitution Hillary Clinton’s ascendancy to Secretary of State is unconstitutional.

 President Obama’s oversight of the census is in direct violation of Article 1 Section 2 of the constitution which states that the house is responsible for the census. Obama’s plan to include sampling in the census taking violate the same article which calls for an “actual” enumeration.

  President Obama’s stimulus package which includes aide to the states provided they change their laws to suit what he feel they should be seems to be a violation of the constitution to me also.

  I have just listed four violations of the constitution on top of Robert Byrd’s concerns. President Obama is in the midst of a power grab the likes of which has never been seen before. He is taking control of entities that belong in the legislative branch, he is violating the checks and balances of government.

 This is the same type of behavior that President Bush was accused of, only this time it is legitimate yet there is only one Democrat in congress who is willing to stand up and be heard. All other Democrats must feel that this power grab is okay, after all he is only doing what is best for us, right? They truly believe that we will thank them in the long run. Repeat after me, it’s only unconstitutional if the Republicans do it. When Democrats do it it is for our own good.

  I feel dirty agreeing with the despicable Robert Byrd, who used to be Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, on any issue. As a matter of fact, Obama’s constitutional transgressions are the only issue that I agree with Senator Byrd on. I think that Byrd is one of the most disgusting human beings ever to hold public office in my lifetime, but the man is a constitutional scholar. He carries some weight on this issue.

  President Obama is a threat to the constitution, he shows a certain aprehension toward the constitution. Perhaps it is his arrogance that makes him feel as though the constitution doesn’t apply to him as president because he is just interested in doing what he considers the greater good.

    I have called him slick barrack the used car salesman ever since his face in the political field! And you listen to his speach and all you can wonder what he isn’t telling you that the car doesn’t have or what problems the car has before you sign the bill of sale!

      He daoesn’t seem to care about the constitution does he? We just have to hold out until 2010 and hope that Republicans take back at least one house. Hopefully he doesn’t do too much damage by then.
