Yes, Obama is a Tyrant, Just Like His Predecessor

by William Norman Grigg

In the heat of a testy exchange with a hostile journalist, the White House press spokesman insisted that “Congress ... does not have constitutional oversight responsibility over the White House.”

This patently untrue defense of unaccountable presidential power was not offered by former Obama administration spokesman Jay Carney – although it certainly could have been. It was actually made by the late Tony Snow while he was working as the press spokesman for George W. Bush in 2007.

Republican congressional leaders, and conservative media figures, are properly outraged over Barack Obama's persistent use of executive orders and signing statements to circumvent what he characterizes as an obstructionist Congress. They have either forgotten or chosen to ignore the fact that George W. Bush issued more than 150 signing statements dealing with both domestic and international affairs. By issuing each of those statements, Bush was announcing his intention not to execute faithfully the measure he had just signed into law.

Barack Obama's insouciant disregard for the limits of his office is well-known, and entirely contemptible. He famously said that because he has a pen and a telephone, he doesn't need congressional cooperation. This is the attitude of an impenitent tyrant – and Obama learned it, in significant ways, from his Republican predecessor.

"Barack Obama" is brand. Let's see.... "Barack Obama," is responsible for thinking-up all this "progress," signing more "Executive Orders" than, the Catholic Church has pedophiles, and, has some-how magically managed to circumvent the entire system of (so-called) "checks-and-balances." Rather than, a "tyrant," wouldn't that make him a "genius?" Please, Obama is a just a face for party, a talking head, a salesman for the fascists - who mislead this nation.

As for "Bush".... His Nazi bloodline has already been openly exposed. Notice, they didn't make the same mistake with Obama.

If the rules have changed so much, that the citizens of this country no longer recognize them, how long do you think it will take, until they stop believing in them entirely?

7565 L.S.- Excellent comment that I'm just now reading. It makes me think even more that you'd enjoy (as stated i my reply to your 'High Priestess Ginsburg' comment) Pratchett's view of humanity in his Discworld series.

It doesn't matter who the prez is anymore. He or she was, is, and will be someone pre-approved and pre-chosen by corporatists, polished and packaged f by corporatists, and presented to the voters - along with the Other pre-chosen candidate(s) - by the corporate-controlled media. "If voting made a difference, they wouldn't let us do it."
