Obama Advisors Declare That President Will Institute Thugocracy If Republicans Don't Give Him What He Wants

Yeah, I know -- the smelling-salts brigade has declared "thug" to be the new N-word. But given that as recently as a couple of weeks ago the word was used to describe the pasty white Chris Christie. And given that we are hearing that the president plans on working with Congress the same way some street punk with a shank works with his victim -- "give me what i want or I'll take it from you anyway."

Consider this tidbit from Obama's official spokesman.

"The president sees this as a year of action to work with Congress where he can and to bypass Congress where necessary," White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

In other words, Obama plans on getting what Congress will give him and then taking as much as he can through executive orders.

Never mind that Article I of the Constitution begins with this very simple declaration.

All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Notice, the president is not given any powers to legislate matters -- only Congress is. Indeed, his authority is quite happy.

The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.

But what is the executive power? It is the power to carry out the laws that have been validly enacted into law. It does not consist in making laws that Congress refuses to make or bypassing Congress when the president considers it necessary. A president who chooses to engage in such activity is no longer the chief executive -- he is nothing but a thug abusing those limited powers he was granted at the time of his election.

The declaration by the president that the failure of Congress to enact those measures that he believes are necessary constitutes grounds for him to enact them himself constitutes a declaration of war on the separation of powers that are a part of our constitutional system of government, and is itself an impeachable offense. Unfortunately, this president is insulated from removal for violations of his oath of office; the Senate majority of the president's power has indicated its unwillingness to hold him constitutionally accountable for his malfeasance in office. Are We the People prepared to stand up and tell Barack Obama no -- whatever the dangers to ourselves at the hands of a man who has repeatedly abused the powers of the executive to harass his critics -- or will we meekly submit to being robbed of our liberties and our constitutional form of government?

UPDATE -- Instapundit has the term for what I'm suggesting we engage in here -- "Irish Democracy"!

Comments on Obama Advisors Declare That President Will Institute Thugocracy If Republicans Don't Give Him What He Wants

We are so past time for impeachment. There is a long list of high crimes and misdemeanors not the least of which is using the IRS to suppress the loyal opposition. What I do not understand is where is the outrage? Where is the MSM in making the case? Where are the citizens in demanding action? And even though I understand the Democrats are a Mafia, where are the good Democrats demanding that something be done. We are losing our country; this is not an exaggeration. The crimes against the people and the constitution are piling up. The DOJ is a joke and has been hijacked by racists for racist purposes. The EPA, ATF and DEA are acting like anti-constitutional criminal organizations. Our economy is teetering on the precipe of a complete collapse and China and other nations are gearing up for war and we are preoccupied with raising the debt limit and handing out more free stuff. If something doesn't happen soon we are toast.
