President Obama Has Begun Openly Flaunting His De Facto Fiat Power Over The Legislati

01.14.14 01:37 PM

“I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.”*

That’s how President Barack Obama phrased his open threat Tuesday to bypass Congress in 2014 if his agenda suffers the same legislative opposition it met last year.


“We are not just going to be waiting for legislation to make sure that we’re providing Americans with the help that they need,” said the President. “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone. I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward.”

Is this a preview of his State of the Union Address? The dictatorial, Constitution-abasing braggadocio comes even as the Obama Administration found itself justifying, as the defendant in a case before the Supreme Court Monday, the President’s previous end-runs around the Constitution in making board appointments while Congress is not convened at the Capitol building.

But what of this new rhetoric? Well, the “pen” part is easy, since the President had the sand to say exactly what he meant: he means to bypass Congress, which he considers inactive because it didn’t pass enough laws last year to melt his progressive heart.



As for the “phone” part, Obama is evidently going into community organizer mode to mobilize people and companies and so on to go out in the yard and stand around a fire or…something.
I’ve got a phone that allows me to convene Americans from every walk of life, nonprofits, businesses, the private sector, universities, to try to bring more and more Americans together around what I think is a unifying theme; making sure that this is a country where if you work hard, you can make it.

Obama didn’t hint at which parts of his agenda are first in line to be decreed into law. It’s a safe bet he’s waiting for Congress to reach its first significant legislative stalemate of the year before he decides to figuratively cross the Rubicon Potomac.
