In Burma Barack Obama states he wishes he could impose his will on the Congress
In Burma today Barack Obama gave a gaffe laden speech which rivals Mitt Romney’s supposed gaffe filled European tour during the campaign and in this speech he said something that I found to be quite interesting:
Now, on other hand, as President, I cannot just impose my will on Congress — the Congress of the United States — even though sometimes I wish I could
This isn’t the first time Barack Obama has stated in public that he wishes he had more dictatorial powers; he said much the same thing when speaking to La Razza on July 25th of last year when he stated the following:
The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting, I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions
Then less than one year later Barack Obama did do things on his own when he implemented the DREAM Act through Executive Order bypassing the authority of the Congress. He found the temptation to great to ignore.
We also know that the EPA is working on passing Barack Obama’s radical Cap and Trade policy, going so far as to hide their intentions using fake email accounts, without the approval of the Congress. And we now the FCC is looking at implementing net neutrality without the approval of the Congress.
It makes you wonder what exactly Barack Obama had in mind when he made this statement today for we know he doesn’t give a damn about Congressional power or the checks and balances the Congress is supposed to provide…..
