King Obama: Ruling by Executive Action

When the national village idiot, Joe Biden, suggested that President Obama may take executive action rather than work through Congress to pass new gun legislation, I thought – eh, Biden’s lips are moving again. But here we are today, with the President saying just that.

My understanding is the vice president’s going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence,” said Obama. “Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action. And so I will be reviewing those today, and as I said, I will speak in more detail to what we’re going to go ahead and propose later in the week. But I’m confident that there are some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as president, and where you get a step that, has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then I want to go ahead and take it.

Amazing that President Obama, our esteemed law professor, who taught at the University of Chicago for 12 years without publishing one academic article, finds that “executive action” is the way to go rather than let Congress do their job. While he has not said that he is solely relying on such action to limit ‘gun violence’, it is not unlike him to rely on such power. President Obama did the same with immigration laws, not that long ago. Why bother executing the laws, when you can write them yourself?

President Obama probably feels that Congress will be unable to agree on new gun control measures – therefore, he should go ahead to take “some steps… that don’t require legislation…”. We will see what steps he’s referring to sometime in the near future. In this second term, with nothing to stop him, I think we can all be seriously concerned.
