Obama in Burma: 'I Wish I Could... Impose My Will on Congress'
Breitbart's Big Peace ^ | November 19, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/19/2012 8:49:07 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Today, President Obama spoke in Burma – or as he termed it, Myanmar, despite official US practice to call the country Burma – and repeatedly botched the name of the country’s famed Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, instead calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi. Then he called President Thein Sein “President Sein,” which was a diplomatic snafu, since the president of Burma is to be called by his full name.

His speech was just as bad. After getting through the basics – acting as though his doctrine, not President Bush’s multiple actions on behalf of democracy in Burma, had created more freedom in Burma -- Obama cited Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “four fundamental freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.”

When it came to freedom of speech, Obama said all the right things – after all, he was not talking about an anti-Islam YouTube video in Burma. But he then followed up that glowing language with this bombshell: “Now, on other hand, as President, I cannot just impose my will on Congress -- the Congress of the United States -- even though sometimes I wish I could.” Yes, he does...

What I should have done was liquidate all the high rank officers, as Stalin did!

A broken record.

The establishment GOP is our immediate problem.

Not much if any freedom of expression inside Burma. Obama feels right at home.

Hell this punk wishes he could impose his will on Michelle and her mother.

Unbelievable.

Hey hussein, what do you call obamacare? What about all your czars? What about your legislation via regulation? What about all those EOs? You’re the worst President ever, and the closest thing we’ve ever had to a dictator. No coincidence that...

This visit to Burma has been an unmitigated DISASTER, with gaffe after gaffe (in Obama’s case, revealing what he actually thinks). Will the MSM hold him accountable? No.

I might just start referring to him as President Bongo, because he becomes more like a Gabonese dictator every day.

He has figured out how to finagle an election by deviding a country. He sidesteped congress and the supreme court by bribing, or intimidating the weak link in each. He cannot yet impose his evil will on Congress, but give him time.

It just makes my skin crawl to hear this professional comminity organizer give a speach in which he lectures an audience on “truths” as he perceives them to be. He states these truths so matter of factly, like there can be no doubt for the fact that he is right.

He is a pompous ass.

A couple of months ago Emperor Zero claimed that the President was “the leader of the American people.” That’s not in the Constitution, but that’s how he sees himself.

I think we are going to see some real ugly politics after his ego is boosted next year.
