    Show me a USA Today article where his actions have been reported as being unconstitutional.

    Ideally you would go out and look, or the media would inform us. But seeing as how they carry his water...

    All of them?

    This is the single most deceitful president in modern history. He wouldn't even reveal his most important legislation before the election, we don't know his school records, he lied about Obamacare and then lied about the lie. He has tricked and deceived, done the opposite of his pronouncements, this is perfect example - transparent secrecy with contempt for "stupid voters" and you are content to allow him to continue to do so....

    This isn't about good government, this is petty ego politics. My guy right or wrong.

    And that is sick
    Surely youve read enough of posts to realize I wouldnt defend Obama on anything political. Im simply fair and balanced.

    Really? The legislative branch could stay home all year long and the president wouldn't gain one once of power from it. The legislative branch does NOT have to stay active or do what other branches want, so that they maintain the power they were given by the Constitution.

    Consider yourself ignored from now on, then.

    It's sleazy, they know it, but hey... it's what they do... So what can R's do about it... espcially with The Demokrat's Sex Toy... John Boehner... he's a boner alright... an idiot if there ever was one. What's he gonna do? Have Congress challenge Obama...? ROTFLOL... Nooooo... he just opens all cavaties and says, let me be the instrument of your desires.
    I hope you are equally outraged by the use of term "enhanced interrogation technique".... its seems to me that guy at the other end of that can't draw the distinction between that and torture.

    Hmmm. Let's see. The President makes a point of telling the Nation he hasn't issued as many EO's as Bush, but it turns out he's been using EO's and EM's, which carry the same force, and the combination of both means he's issued more than any President in the last 70 years.

    And the little minions who worship his every step just keep lapping it up?

    Geeze, you'd think an effort to hide the hypocrisy would be undertaken just a little bit.

    So, who's the effin joke?

    The executive branch couldn't wholesale take over, but there are margins that exist between the branches. They are certainly not even and impenetrable divides. A weak branch will see its margins filled by the other branches.
