Bic It Where The Sun Don't Shine.

Reblogged from HopeNChange Cartoons. 


Barack Obama took time yesterday to assure the American people that this year, he doesn’t intend to let little things like Congress, the Constitution, or laws in general stand between him and his fiendish plans. Which isn’t exactly how he phrased it, but people with fiendish plans really like to use a lot of euphemisms when speaking. 
Declaring that he no longer intends to wait for the legislative process to work (what with all of those annoying elected officials representing pesky citizens, and the nitpicking Supreme Court interpreting the outdated Constitution), Obama announced “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone!” Which he presumably keeps in the same desk drawer as his hammer and sickle. 
In much the way steel-drivin’ John Henry swung his hammer, lawd, lawd, Barry intends to swing his mighty pen to assure that “kids are getting the best education possible, (make) sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, and to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.” 
In other words, he’ll skip Congressional oversight and funnel more money to teachers’ unions, create more business-destroying regulations, and authorize more college loans to make sure our young are never out of debt and our nation will never fall behind in the critical production of Gender Studies professors. 
Meanwhile, with his mighty phone he intends to personally speak to a lot of academic types about his potential executive orders, thereby collecting the same kind of expert opinions which have made Obamacare such a rousing success. What could possibly go wrong? 
All of this is, of course, exactly the kind of banana republic dictatorial powerplay that our Founding Fathers warned us against. 
And why they designed the Articles of Impeachment in such a way that any executive who abuses the power of the federal pen might well be sent to the Federal Pen.

    1. Thanks for dropping by, ORL. The postings had become irregular (sorta like my bowel movements) but I'm gonna try to pick it up... the postings, not my bowel movements.

    1. At my age, Carol, I brag about remembering what I did yesterday... which I don't remember this morning.

  4. Why is Congress (both houses) not up-in-arms at this despotic dictator's public proclamations to circumvent their Constitutional responsibilities? I would also ask this of the public, at large, but that would require that they switch their attention from all of the trivia that preoccupies their dwindling cerebral resources. OK, that explains my first question about Congress!

    1. I've been asking myself the same thing, John. I think what you came up with pretty well explains it. Also, having The Beltway filled with people like Boner helps a lot, too.
