I’m not into imperial presidents who act imperial and speak imperial and Obama forgets there’s a Constitution. Yeah he keeps telling us he won reelection. Congratulations. But guess what, the Constitution wasn’t up for election. It’s not up for a plebiscite or a referendum. He has to comply with it too. He was sent back to Washington but he’s got a strict list of rules that he has to follow as president.
"So when he gets up there and he starts saying ‘if Congress doesn’t do this, I’m gonna do this unilaterally’, it violates separation of powers a lot of the times. And this is a man who’s been pushing the edge of the envelope as far as I’m concerned whether it’s the appointment clause, whether it’s his unilateral action on immigration, whether it’s his trashing the commerce clause and the tax clauses on Obamacare. Now they’re talking about executive orders on the 2nd amendment, they’ve issued regulations on the first amendment attacking religious liberty – this notion that he might be able to lift the debt ceiling unilaterally under the 14th amendment – what the hell is this? He was elected president, congratulations. This guy makes Richard Nixon look like a man who followed the law all the time.
"I think we have an imperial president. He sounds imperial, he’s arrogant as hell.
