Libs Like Those Executive Orders
In the most recent issue of The New Yorker, which he edits, sycophantic Obama biographer David Remnick writes of his experience accompanying Obama on a west coast fund raising tour.
At one stop, when Obama walked out on stage, Remnick reports, "it happened again: another heckler broke into Obama's speech. A man in the balcony repeatedly shouted out, 'Executive order!,' demanding that the President bypass Congress with more unilateral actions."
The president has not been shy about doing just that. In his radio address on Saturday, Obama casually observed, "Where Congress isn't acting, I'll act on my own to put opportunity within reach for anyone who's willing to work for it."
Equally indifferent to the separation of powers, Obama's west coast audience egged him on to do more. When Obama acknowledged to the crowd that his supporters wanted him to sign more executive orders and "basically nullify Congress," Remnick reports, "Many in the crowd applauded their approval. Yes! Nullify it!"
These were not the Occupy Wall Street types. These were the donors. It pays to know what we are up against.
