What is the constitutional remedy for a lawless president?

It is chilling to hear a president of the United States say:  “I’m not gonna wait for Congress to act.”  His dictator mind and inclination is easy to track in everything he has ever said and done but it is now moving from mind set and beliefs to actions. And not just some meaningless and harmless acts and utterances of him personally, but actions and commands as the leader of the United States that violate the consitutuion under which he serves and which he has vowed and sworn to uphold and defend.

In his own words:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/8847733/President-Obama-tells-Congress-we-cant-wait.html

Marks Fitzgibbons at the American Thinker says:

President Obama’s proclamation on Monday that he “can’t wait” for congressional action to help underwater homeowners raises two questions.

If he already had the legal authority to take action, then why did he wait?

Some may frame the second question this way: does Obama’s plan exceed his constitutional authority? Perhaps the better way to ask the second question is whether the Obama plan is unlawful.

Either way, I can’t wait for Congress to conduct some oversight hearings before the plan kicks in. This isn’t just a figurative slap in the face to both Congress and the rule of law; this is a kick in the groin.

Ignoring the Constitution is so liberating for Mr. Obama that he intends to do it on a “regular basis.” The subtitle to Emily Miller’s piece at The Washington Times following the announcement of Obama’s “can’t wait” plan is “President unveils lawless scheme to bypass Congress with executive orders.”

…..

The Constitution is broad in its sweep, but is specific about certain functions of government. Congress makes the laws. When Congress doesn’t pass a law, the president can’t pick up his bat and ball like an angry juvenile.

We are hearing more and more from the left that the president must do administratively what Congress refuses to do legislatively. These are not mere words of frustration. They are words of an ideology that is dangerously inconsistent with American ideals.

The calls from the left to violate the Constitution are protected by the First Amendment. It is when they are implemented by the president that they become lawbreaking. The Constitution, you see, governs government.

Is the president a Sunni or a Shiite?

The muslim vs Christian fire is flaming.  Interestingly, nobody was talking about it, until the Pew poll came out which showed the American people really are unsure about the president’s religion.  The mainstream picked it up and have been obsessing on it now for days (along with the eggs recall).

I don’t know.  There’s just something a little curious about the fact that our president dropped the mosque bomb and then went on vacation while the issue went viral and the chaos took over.  Along about the same time, we have the muslim thing flaming up.   Wonder what this grand distraction is about.

I caught about three minutes of Chris Matthews last night and I was shocked at his frantic, lunatic ranting about the fact that so many people think our president is a muslim.  You would have to see it.  Almost foaming at the mouth.  Of course, blaming the republicans for it.  Although I do think George Bush is off the hook on this one since the far left, even including Eugene Robinson, is longing for the “religious tolerance” of Bush.  Bush remains silent, by the way.  He ain’t as dumb as you think.

But, Lord have mercy, who knew the far left wing media would think there is something so wrong with the president of the United States being a muslim.

I am interested in it – just because….just because I’m a bitter clinger and I think, yeah, the president of the United States just might be a muslim.  There’s lots of jokes in there for Jeff Foxworthy….if you (fill in the blank) you just might be a muslim.

I have always thought the matter could be laid to rest if when he presents his real birth certificate, he presents his certificate of baptism as well.  He doesn’t seem to be in possession of too many documents. But why do you think the white house, just right out of the blue brought out his passport?  Nobody asked him about his passport. Nobody was talking about his passport.  But there’s some blurry dates on there.  Reminds me of big foot or the loch ness monster.  Hazy pictures, lots of sightings, but never any real proof.

Seriously, does it matter if we have a muslim president?

Does it matter that, if we do, we also have one of the biggest liars that ever lived in the white house.

He has said he is a Christian.  He made a rather big deal out of it during the campaign.  Then it came out that his one and only confirmation is his membership in the Trinity Church of Christ, the weirdest church I have Ever seen or heard tell of.

Somewhere I had heard that the Trinity Church did not require members be baptized and that they could retain their muslim faith and be members as well. Denominations bicker and disagree about it a lot as to the form it should take, immersion, sprinkling, so forth, but I don’t believe I’ve heard of a church that does not require it. Baptists say you don’t have to be baptized to be saved, but if you are saved, you will be baptized and, upon profession of faith in Christ, you will be scheduled pretty quickly.

But I do not believe you could convert from a muslim to a Christian without being baptized because the renunciation of the old would be just as important as the announcement of the new.

White house spokesman, Bill Burton added, “The president is obviously a Christian. He prays everyday.”

Would that be five times a day?
