Candidate Obama versus President Obama on Executive Power [Video]

Don Irvine  —   February 13, 2014 

   
obama 2008 debate

When Barack Obama campaigned for president in 2008, he criticized President George W. Bush for bringing “more and more power into the executive branch,” rather than working with Congress to meet his legislative goals:


I taught constitutional law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problem that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.

Considering how Obama is now using his executive order privilege—delaying the employer mandate in Obamacare, requiring federal contractors to pay a higher minimum wage—it looks like Obama is not keeping his promise to work with Congress.

Obama promised in his State of the Union speech that this would be a year of action.  What he meant was that this will be a year of executive orders to try and achieve what he has failed to accomplish legislatively.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the media to report on this latest example of Obama’s hypocrisy.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
