There Oughta Be a Law(yer)
By Clarice Feldman

Nothing better depicted Obama's illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez' brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning.

Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes:

Quote

    But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It's as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama writes any number he wants, any delay he wants, and any provision.

    [snip]

    Where in the Constitution is the president allowed to alter the law 27 times after it has been passed?"

    [snip]

    The win-at-all-cost mentality helped create a culture in which a partisan-line vote was deemed sufficient for passing transcendent legislation. It spurred advisers to develop a dishonest talking point -- "If you like your health plan, you'll be able to keep your health plan." And political expediency led Obama to repeat the line, over and over and over again, when he knew, or should have known, it was false.

Also a great read and both Charles and Clarice are 100% correct.

Now, who is out there proposing to do anything meaningful about any of it??

The fact you have to ask that is probably the most damning indictment of the current system I have seen.

Absent an opposition party whose leaders are willing to even complain about Obama's usurpation of power, much less act upon it, nothing will be done.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.
