Using fraudulent budget math which landed Bernie Madoff in prison with a 150-year sentence, Obama deliberately lied to the American people about the cost of insurance [under Obamacare], their ability to keep the policies they liked, and the fact that middle income Americans were being bled dry in order to fund other people's medical care.
When his politicized Internal Revenue Service was caught trying to destroy his political opposition, Obama stonewalled and used the "dog ate my homework" excuse. Thus, he argued, an Executive Branch which could suck up meta-data on every phone call in the world somehow couldn't locate e-mails that, not coincidentally, would have incriminated it.
If Congress refused to pass his immigration legislation, he would enact it by executive fiat. If Congress frustrated his efforts to exploit a horrific tragedy in order to pass gun control, he would craft 23 "executive actions" to achieve the same thing. If the law barred him from demanding sales information from gun dealers or creating a national gun registry, he would do it anyway.
After all, wasn't it Richard Nixon who said to David Frost: "If the President does it, that means it's not illegal." And nothing happened to him, right?
Perhaps, as Richard Nixon found out, the Constitution is a little more resilient than Obama imagines.
Tim Macy is the Chairman of Gun Owners of America, a gun lobby that represents more than one million members and activists.

The fact that no attempt has been made to impeach Obama proves America is toast.
yes and Obama continues to destroy the country and no one does squat
The Corruptocrats LOVE what he is doing.
You first clue that America is toast is when just one voter, not a majority , just one sais, via their vote, that they wanted a son of a bitch lie Obama to be their leader. The second clue should have been when this decision was confirmed in 2012.
It will be so nice when O’ is lands a 150 year, hard-time prison sentance.
True enough. Keep your powder dry.
The fact that a 2/3 majority of both houses of congress is required to impeach O’bastard is the reason he gets away with it.
There is no way to get 67 senators to vote to impeach him, so it is pointless to waste time on it. Unless we can get the courts to stop him he will continue doing what he wants.
The bastard doesn’t have the moral character of Nixon to step down.
GOP has been utterly silent since Jan 2009. There is only one party now, both funded by the same group of people too.
The bastard doesnt have the moral character.Period
I agree. Now we just wait until it’s done with then start rebuilding a true republic again. If that’s possible.
I feel for those who have a long time left on this earth.
There’s a way to get 67 senators to impeach him. You do it by playing hard ball. Threaten to expose the dirt on them even though you’ll go down with the ship. That won’t happen because the republicans don’t want to go down with the ship. They want to be on the only lifeboat with the democrats.
You are totally right — it's not (D) vs. (R), it's the elites vs. us.
First, I blame the 20-something year old bimbo females who got sucked up into Barry’s ‘swagger’, with no regard to his pedigree or qualifications. Second, I blame the Congress for failing to hold him to account for his crimes. Third, I blame the military for not coming to America’s rescue and storming the White House to arrest the fraud.
“It will be so nice when O is lands a 150 year, hard-time prison sentence ... “
That’s really funny stuff.
But don’t hold your breath. Remember Moochelle’s (restatement of Marx’s “From those according to their ability, to those according to their need”):
`Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so someone else can have more.’ (in order to fund “affordable healthcare”)?
Who prosecutes federal crimes? The Justice department.
Who heads the justice department? An Obama appointee.
Most importantly: Who are our `champions’?
Our champs are the Republican branch of the Uniparty.
We just put them in office—and they seemed to immediately become infected with Foggy Bottom tse tse fly sleeping sickness.
The only way this can end is for Thatcher’s Law to kick in: “Eventually socialists run out of other people’s money.”
However when this bankruptcy occurs, and it will, as surely as a law of physics, then—along with punitive Affordable Care premiums, deductions and exclusions from coverage—the Department of Health with the IRS as the spear-point will start taxing Americans outright to pay for “free” healthcare (SCOTUS said it was OK, remember?)
And the Uniparty—being exempt—will continue to care less.
But if it makes you feel better, keep telling yourself that Obama will be held to account for his fecklessness, lies and crimes. Hold one hand in front of you, cup one behind you, etc.
Amen to that!
Does anyone think that congress has an emergency plan for removing Odumba$$? What is the process for removing a crazy person from office?
Congress has no plans for removing Obama from office because they approve of what he is doing.
Lol, no..there is no plan.
