    Power is a hell of a drug, that's basically what it boils down to.

    You're just one step short of arming up and taking aim at him, aren't you?

    Now that is some funny stuff right there. Good job delivering on your promise prez.

    Liberals, save it! I don't want to hear how it's all the Republicans fault because they are stone walling him. Republicans were elected because of Obama not doing his job.

    Obama expected congress to be reasonable. He was naive.

    Agreed, this issue was put forth in 2013 and Republicans promptly squashed it out. There have been 12,042 gun deaths since then, I don't care what anyone says, it has to be addressed and Obama's actions, while symbolic, aren't nearly enough. Congress has to act and a real fight has to be taken up against the NRA, they're no different than a well funded terrorist organization.

    freaking ironic you guys can't seem to understand Obama is acting like a dictator, it's ok to be like that as long as it suits your agenda, Constitution be dammed.

    The first dictator to be elected, twice. He really needs to read message boards of people who call him names and claim to know the Constitution better than he does, then maybe he'll learn something.

    You really don't understand much about the roles of the branches of government or what an executive order actually is, do you?

    pffft, even the ACLU is against what he does, from the no fly list to indefinite detention w/o trial

    so yeah, plenty know the Constitution better than he does, you obviously don't care since it supports your agenda.

    Man, you have a real hardon for this particular policy...70-80 posts about it! You are nothing if not repetitive!

    It's called consistency, shame liberals seemingly only care about the constitution when a republican is crapping on it

    Yeah, I did. So on which of the 23 orders did Obama "bypass Congress" and actually make a law?

    When Obama takes your guns, then you can whine about the Constitution.

    Congress makes laws. Executive orders are mostly used to clarify the implementation of laws within the executive branch.

    So, which of the 23 executive orders did he actually make a new law with?

    Excellent question. Might I add, what EOs of Bush's was he referring to?

    It's hard to deny this President has taken the executive branch's power to the very edge, in some cases over stepping it.

    Listen, I'm not going to pretend other Presidents haven't done the same when they get so fed up with Congress. It's why we have a supreme court to put everyone in their place.

    Don't worry - you won't get called out by mods or The Regulars for suggesting a poster is interested in killing the president.

    You're golden in the PRSI.
