Obama seems to spend an awful lot of time letting people know that he’s not the king or emperor of America. Trust me Barry, anyone with half a brain knows that.
You’re the one who keeps protesting the idea at every turn. Ever heard the phrase “The lady doth protest too much“?
This is the 2nd time in 2 months that he’s made a public, unscripted statement in which he lets anyone who questions his policies know that he’s not the king or emperor and he can’t just change anything he wants to in our country.
Is it just me or is that a sly attempt to let his supporters know that if they just rose up and put him on the throne, they would have everything their heart’s desire?
Probably not, the man isn’t exactly prone to thinking before he speaks when he’s off teleprompter. I certainly don’t credit him with the wits to be stirring up a rebellion in an attempt to change our country’s government back to rule by divine right.
But he could effect change much more efficiently without that pesky Constitution and Bill of Rights which have made it so hard for him to do what he likes. If he was king then he could just shout “off with their heads” when he couldn’t force congress to do his bidding.
Why do you think the founding fathers made it more difficult to create change that you would like Obama? Might have something to do with the fact that they had just finished dealing with one power hungry monarch and they weren’t looking to have another one in this country.
They could see you coming a few thousand miles away Barry.
But I digress.
During an interview with Univision in January, Obama stated:
“I think it’s important to remind everybody that, what I’ve said previously, I am not a king, I am head of the executive branch of government. I am required to follow the law, and that is what we’ve done.”
“I am required to follow the law” he says…well that’s certainly a shock to those of us who remember that he has spent a lot of time either outright trampling on the document he swore to uphold, or stealthily circumventing it with executive orders, refusing to uphold immigration laws and DOMA because he disagrees with them, and attempts to unconstitutionally make recess appointments to government groups.
Now he’s letting us know, via Google hangout (does this man ever actually work), that he is not emperor of the United States and he’s bound to uphold the law, including immigration law.
Might want to tell that to ICE, who is suing the Federal government for making it impossible for them to do their jobs.
You certainly seem to think that you SHOULD be king or emperor, you certainly live like you do anyway. Doesn’t it seem a bit strange to anyone that Obama and his wife (who I could easily see actually saying “let them eat cake”) are both taking lavish vacations, while the country is going further into debt and Pelosi is worrying that her job just won’t be dignified anymore if she has to take a pay cut.
Oh well, kings don’t need to worry about silly things like consistency when they have a whole fleet of court jesters, in the form of the MSM, to distract people with videos of Marco Rubio drinking a bottle a water.
Update: March 1st, 2013
Obama would like you to know that he is, in fact, not a dictator.
How many times does he feel the need to bring up the fact that he doesn’t rule by divine right or by the sword?
