No question, an 'executive order' suspending the Constitution is in order or we’ll never get out of this mess from the past 4 years.

he'll do whatever he can get away with, and congress will have to either get on the bus or be left behind.

Obama doesn't care about the 2014 election, or the 2016 election, but congress sure does.

4 more years of this incompetent idiot should just about be enough time to destroy this nation.

I think that even obamas main pole sucker, marine corps pat, would even spit out the presidential load he's been gargling with for the last 4 years.

Obama couldn't be any more overbearing then he has been for the first term. I doubt Congress will pay him any more attention then they did before. It will be gridlock with a capital G. This isn't their first Rodeo.

Speed up, bozo.........the 22d Amendment to the Constitution rules out a third term.. that's what you get for skipping class in high school

22d Amendment

Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

I know this is a disappointment for you but we are still a nation of laws and congress does not ride the same bus, they have their own as does the supreme court.

The President will have to be far more aggressive and confrontational if he is to complete America's transition to a Cuban Collectivist society during his second term. He MUST end all hope for a bright "American" style future for White families if he is to earn the respect of the anti American Progressive Base.
