Presidential Incredulity

Does President Obama seriously believe he can unilaterally disobey the Obamacare law he and his cronies worked so hard to foist upon the American people? I think so. I believe our President has very little knowledge of the Constitution, much less respect for it. After all, American history was hardly the focus of the foreign schools where Obama grew up. Now, he is telling America that he is going to let insurance companies extend their policies to distraught Americans for one year.  The President recently spoke, outlining his new edict.

We’re also requiring insurers who extend current plans to inform their customers about two things: One, what protections these renewed plans don’t include. Number two, that the (Obamacare) marketplace offers new options with better coverage and tax credits that might help you bring down the cost. So if you received one of these letters, I encourage you to take a look at the marketplace. Even if the website isn’t working as smoothly as it should be for everybody yet, the plan comparison tool that lets you browse costs for new plans near you is working just fine… It is important to understand, though, that the old individual market was not working well. And it’s important that we don’t pretend that somehow that’s a place that we’re going back to.”

Civics 101…the President doesn’t get to violate the law; well, unless of course you are Barry Soetoro (a.k.a Barak Hussein Obama).  Hopefully, enough Democrats in the Senate will feel the heat of American's fury to break their blind allegiance and fix this mess (yes, Congress is the only legal fix available).

And speaking of violating the law, the House of Representatives seems to be seriously considering articles of impeachment against Erik Holder, our nation’s chief law breaker…I mean, law enforcer. As Attorney General, he continues to ignore Congressional subpoenas relating to his actions on Fast and Furious. He refuses to enforces our nation’s Defense of Marriage Act, involved himself in the Fox News/James Rosen scandal and a dozen other serious offenses that leave our heads spinning.

I doubt however, the calculating Republican leadership will allow such. What was it James Russell Lowell wrote? "Truth forever on the scaffold. Wrong forever on the throne."
