(CNSNews.com) -- At a meeting of Tea Party conservatives in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, conservative talk radio host Mark Levin said President Barack Obama doesnt have the constitutional authority to do half of what hes doing, and added that the Republican leadership has not taken any steps to stop Obama's unconstitutional actions.
CNSNews.com asked Levin, Do you believe Obama has the constitutional authority to address climate change or minimum wage without congressional approval?
Levin said, Of course not. He doesnt have the constitutional authority to do half of what hes doing.
But nobody appears to want to stop him, said Levin. Has the Republican leadership taken any steps whatsoever? No."
"Its about time when the Supreme Court gets a chance it steps up too," he said. "But, so far its given him power he doesnt have under the Constitution on the health care law; its given him power he doesnt have under the immigration law; its given him power he doesnt have under DOMA [Defense of Marriage Act]. So the Supreme Court looks like its willing to go along with this.
Just what does the Constitution matter to Obama?
The question is “What are we conservatives going to do about it and when are we going to do it?”
Neither do the federal courts
You King needs no "constitutional authority".
He is your King. He is EXEMPT.
He controls the IRS and NSA.
Bow now, and put your cracker necks beneath our feet."
Correct...It matters not one whit to him but Levin couldn’t be more in saying no one is doing squat to stop this criminals abuses.
As a state Sen, comrade obamatollah told NPR he rejects the Constitution because it limits the power of the Federal government.
Sounds like a dirty, filthy communist to me!
He doesn’t need Constitutional authority. The Constitution is moot if the other branches of the federal government and we the people are willing to stand by and allow this brazen lawless corruption of our system!
...Levin couldn’t be more right...
“Power perceived, is power achieved.”
My sense is that the GOP establishment can’t wait to get their hands on the levers of power so they can get away with all the stuff Obama has. Unfortunately for them it doesn’t work that way.
It looks to me like Ukranians and Egyptians care a whole lot more about their country that us fat and lazt Americans do. As long as everyone can get a flat screen tv and a smartphone eveeryone’s happy!
Yep...he called it a Charter of Negative Rights. POS!
When the AG is as corrupt as sin, what do you expect?
BUMP that! Holder is 0bama’s right hand slimeball.
Well a couple of congressmen have said that they're really thinking about filing article of impeachment. I guess they just haven't gotten around to it yet. </sarcasm>
Obviously the constitution no longer matters to the WH, congress nor the supreme court so expect that the obozo to remain in the WH unless or until he is arrested and removed. An Article V constitutional convention will mean nothing unless the people are willing to back it up. If one believes they will, then why is this constitution being circumvented now without consequence? Old law, new law, so what? An American spring like the ones in Egypt and Ukraine may get the ruling elites attention and guaranteed, the people will not like their response. Just saying.
Of course they don't want to stop him. They all want the same things he does, and are perfectly willing to let him take the heat for doing what they want. The GOPe wants liberalism, the SCOTUS under Roberts wants it, so Obastard is free to operate without any checks in place.
I used to think the only difference between the GOP and the Rats is the GOP wants to be the ones in charge of big government, but I've come to realize they're OK with riding in the back seat, just so long as they get to go on the power trip too.
We conservatives don't have any representation at all in DeeCee, and probably haven't since Reagan.
Admit I “stole” this from another blog while looking up how Obama complained the Constitution “restricts” him. It’s priceless:
“Catching a glimpse of a Sasquatch in the wild is more likely than seeing Obama respect our Constitution (...no, Michelle hasn’t been hiking lately)”
