Default Obama Cannot Make Laws!

Obama said Monday he would begin using his authority on his own to change the nation's immigration policy. I hope our third branch of government prevents his continued power grab by issuing Executive Orders…. He has said: "I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone…and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions….."

An executive order is a presidential policy directive that implements or interprets a federal statute, a constitutional provision, or a treaty without the requirement of congressional approval…… but Obama cannot MAKE or CHANGE our laws with his pen.....

Some interesting history........By 1952, Democrat Harry Truman had become an unpopular president, even among Democrats, and his attempted Federal seizure of our nation’s steel mills revealed a power struggle with a hostile Congress. Although no current statute authorized him to nationalize the steel industry, he had authority under the Taft-Hartley Act to order an eighty-day “cooling-off period,” during which the union-management dispute might have been settled without a strike. The pro-union president chose not to issue such an order, however, because he opposed the Taft-Hartley Act, which Congress had passed it over his veto in 1947.

He did not ask Congress to authorize his seizure of the steel industry. Instead, Truman rested his seizure order on legally vague national-emergency grounds, citing his inherent powers as president and as commander-in-chief of the armed forces. Afterward, he and his official spokesman sought clumsily “to transform the steel crisis from a particular labor dispute into a broader battle against ‘big business,’” a rendering that had little resonance. Truman decided to issue Executive Order 10340 to have the secretary of commerce seize control of the steel industry.

Both the courts and public opinion opposed Truman's action. According to a Gallup poll, 43 percent of Americans disapproved of the seizures. In April 1952, a federal district court found Truman's actions unconstitutional. Two months later, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the lower court's finding in a 6 to 3 decision.

I also found this at the Harry Truman Library website:
http://www.trumanlibrary.org

A PRESIDENT
CANNOT..................................

• make laws.
• declare war.
• decide how federal money will be spent.
• interpret laws.
• choose Cabinet members or Supreme Court Justices without Senate approval.

Isnt it amazing that when the dems dont like the outcome of the SCOTUS they say that they will work around the ruling. But the repub have to accept unconstitusional outcomes.

then you have this idiot oliver formally of the daily show saying Repubs cant pick and choose which laws to enforce from the constitution, yet thats exactly what O and the dems are doing daily.

just couldn't choke on the stupidity any longer....
who gives a shit about how many executive orders the POTUS signs...
nice that some fucked up clown picked Regan (one of the best presidents of all time) and Bush to put along side the biggest embarrassment this country has ever turned out - oh wait, he's still never proved he's from this country.

Lets talk about exec orders -
How about William Jefferson Blyth III - 364
How about Dwight - 484
How about Truman - 907

Its not about the quantity, its about the quality, or in this case, the damaging effect.
But I guess if you have a big enough bong and enough herb.....none of this matters.
