Barack Obama Shreds Constitution … Again

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/01/04


Here we go again, folks. Barack Obama is doing more ruling by decree day by day, despite the explicit declarations in the US Constitution prohibiting his actions. And he’s supposedly a Constitutional scholar? Today, Barack Obama made four Recess Appointments. A “Recess Appointment” is an appointment a President makes while Congress is in recess, bypassing the mandated Senate approval process. The difficulty here is… Congress is not in recess!

The US Constitution explicitly states it is each branch of Congress which determines its own rules. It also explicitly states how Congress can go into recess, and that is through Congressional action and not Executive action. So, the very explicit US Constitution, one which requires the US President to swear an oath to uphold against all enemies, foreign and domestic, is also very explicit in declaring Barack Obama’s actions unconstitutional. The above Hot Air link has links to people on both sides of the political spectrum declaring Obama’s actions to be clearly unconstitutional. But does Obama care about a little thing like violating the Supreme Law of the Land in his everpresent power-grab and divide-and-conquer political campaigning? It’s never stopped him before.

My real question is, how can anyone who values the US and its Constitutional restrictions on government give any support to the President who has done the most to violate the Constitution and Federal Law since the first half of the 20th Century?

    The answer is simple: the House of Representatives must now decline to fund the agencies in question. Thus, President Obama will have his men in place, but they’ll just be sitting there, doing nothing, because they will have no money.

    Looking like a Dictatorship is coming. I guess he learned his less from Hugo Chavez. What’s next, cancelling elections in Nov. Or maybe sending out SWAT teams. OOOOPS, he just did that.
