Responding to reports that President Obama is considering signing as many as nineteen executive orders on gun control, Republicans in Congress unleashed a blistering attack on him today, accusing Mr. Obama of “cynically and systematically using his position as President to lead the country.”
Spearheading the offensive was Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who charged the President with the “wanton exploitation of powers that are legally granted to him under the U.S. Constitution.“
Calling him the “Law Professor-in-Chief,” Rep. Stockman accused Mr. Obama of “manipulating a little-known section of the Constitution,” Article II, which outlines the power of the President.
“President Obama looks down the list of all of the powers that are legally his and he’s like a kid in a candy store,” Rep. Stockman said. “It’s nauseating.”
The Texas congressman said that if Mr. Obama persists in executing the office of the Presidency as defined by the Constitution, he could face “impeachment and/or deportation.”
Noting that the President has not yet signed the executive orders on gun control, Rep. Stockman said that he hoped his stern words would serve as a wake-up call to Mr. Obama: “Mr. President, there’s still time for you to get in line. But if you continue to fulfill the duties of President of the United States that are expressly permitted in the Constitution, you are playing with fire.”
“free at last, free at last. thank god almighty, we are free at last.” – Martin Luther King, Jr
It’s sick to think that we celebrated the birthday of one of the greatest civil rights leaders the United States of America has ever seen only to have it book ended with a monstrosity of a Supreme Court decision that allows non-human entities (ie corporations) to donate freely to political campaigns. I will not stand for this injustice and have added my name in support of Change Congress. We really need a fair and just funding system for elections, it is the root of our democracy… And when that day happens, once again we will have the freedom to honor the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.
