Our Imperial President

Stacy McCain links a Johnathan Turley piece on Obama’s fascination with “acting when Congress will not”

Jonathan Turley has a column by President Obama’s high-handed, irresponsible and unconstitutional exercise of unilateral power:

In our system, there is no license to go it alone. Rather, the Republic’s democratic architecture requires compromise. The process is designed to moderate legislation and create a broader consensus in support of these laws.
Nor is congressional refusal to act on a particular prescription of how to fix the economy or repair immigration laws an excuse. Sometimes the country (and by extension Congress) is divided.
When that happens, less gets done. The Framers understood such times. They lived in such a time.

Of course none of these facts matters to President Obama, or to Democrats as a party. The only principle that guides them is to use any tool to garner as much power as possible.  Please go read the rest of Turley’s piece, it will be worth your while
