After re-election, Obama asked aides how to govern without Congress
http://washingtonexaminer.com ^ | JULY 17, 2013 | BY CHARLIE SPIERING

Posted on 07/17/2013 6:09:52 PM PDT by Para-Ord.45

Politico’s Glenn Thrush reports that after President Obama won re-election, he tried to find out ways of pushing his second term agenda without the Republican-led Congress.

“Guys, I don’t want politics to be a limit of what you recommend to me,” Obama told senior aides David Plouffe, Lew, Dan Pfeiffer and Pete Rouse a couple of weeks after his reelection, according to a White House aide with direct knowledge of the meeting.

“Let’s come up with an agenda, then let’s figure it out from there as best we can,” he said, prodding them to adopt a more muscular approach to the use of executive power. “We can’t let the driving force of what we pass be Congress.”

This explains President Obama’s frequent mentions of governing without Congress.

The little piggies in the US Congress don’t care.

Less for them to do.
No accountability, anyway.

Just pork, kickbacks, brothels, special deals,
SEC violations, no ObamaCARE, trips, alcohol,
and IRS and NSA reports on anyone under them
during their first class safaris and trips.

Obama ordered its IRS to rig the election for Obama and democrats/socialists in the Senate.

This purple lipped, big eared cretin Obama and democrats are doing a communist coup of America

what are you doing to stop Obama? Go ahead and stop him and the democrat machine

The enemy of the American people is the democrat party. The democrat party controls

1. the news media
2. hollwywood
3. the presidency
4. The senate
5. the gov bureaucracies
5. the unions
7. the universities
8. the schools
9. soros , Lewis,zuckerberg, msny other billionaires are democrats.
10. Obama the main tyrant is a democrat
11. silicon valley, Google etc. are democrats
12. Pelosi, REid, fienstein, Shumer, Durbin , Lois lerner r democrats
13 . the rest of the media
14. IRS , EPA, DHS, HHS, TSA, FBI, etc.
15. liberals control the supreme Court( they approved Obamacare)
17. NAACP, La Raza, lawyers , AARP, many other groups
18 . Democrats control all the political money .Soros, tides foundation,gov grants,Zuckerberg,Lewis (another billionaire. moveon.org,unions etc.

Democrat party controls all this and more but the media and many others say that everything is the Republicans fault even though r’s have only a few votes majority in the House and that’s it

Democrats want to makes slaves of all Americans, turn us into cattle with less rights than a cow or farm chicken for them to manipulate. Democrats want to turn the USA into a communist state where all of us are totally dependent on government for everything, we own nothing.

The media is the most powerful entity in the USA and the world. the media made a non-crime( the zimmerman case) into the top news that everyone was focused on. all in attempt as Rush says to take away our guns and independence from government. 2 of the top stories of the year, zimmerman and newtown. they are hell bent on taking away our gun rights

If this is true then somebody with the cojones to do so should immediately introduce articles of impeachment. This is un-freaking-believable . . . uh well no it’s not, it perfectly fits the mold we have dealt with for the past 4+ years. IMPEACH 0bama NOW!

He really didn’t need to find a way, the way was already in place. The majority of both House and Senate republicans honestly don’t care what Obozo does to the country as long as they are part of the ruling class. And the voters keep re-electing them to what amounts to lifetime appointments.

Why, the same thing they've done about Benghazi, the NSA stockpiling of our private communications and the IRS auditing religious and conservative groups! Hold hearings, wag fingers, issue grave press releases, talk to Sean Hannity...and that's about it. They have issues that make Watergate look like a traffic ticket and are too petrified to use them because they are afraid of being called RACIST. That is what it boils down to; they don't want to bring down a black president.

Excellent and comprehensive list. Its nice to get excited
about an occasional win, like the GZ verdict or the emergence of a true conservative like Ted Cruz, but the truth is that we have been and are still being ‘fundamentally transformed’ in an overwhelming manner
as was promised.

Disagree somewhat. Repub politicians who are wusses are part of the problem not just Dems and their media wing.

Ronald Reagan won in a landslide because he ran on Conservative Principles. Reagan managed to get most of his tax polices implemented even with Repubs in the minority. The current crop of Repubs controlling the Party have no Principles and are walking across the aisle to help Dems.

I perfer to hold accountable those calling themselves Repub and giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

After re-election, Obama asked aides how to govern without Congress

Does Darrel Isa know about this?
Is the avalanche of profoundly troubling Executive Orders one of the results?

Was ignoring the Supreme Court also on the agenda? Or was it assumed that the GOP Congress (which is the ONLY entity that has standing to appeal to the Court and which is not under the control of the Executive Branch,) would act befuddled and powerless to mount a challenge?

Hussein's aides obviously found brazen means of circumventing Congress, in a way that dispensed with the need for accommodation or compromise.

Good for them.
A pox on the eunuchs.

Part of being conservative used to be realism.

How on earth do you propose to impeach a dem POTUS through a dem Senate? It serves no useful purpose to go through the motions, like with klintoon, without some better than even chance of convicting to remove from office.

The House can stop nobama, by simply refusing to go along with any more Continuing Resolutions. Bam, no money, no tyrant.

I am concerned that in reality it will take a true SHTF situation where enough armed patriotic citizens say “NO MORE”.
