Obama tells Congress, “It’s MY ball” !


President Obama doesn’t feel he needs to follow the Constitution, the laws of the United States,  nor any precedents.  What a surprise!

Never has the true character of a man been more obvious than with Obama as he appoints a  tax cheat and even nominates Biden,  a man who PLAGARIZED, for the Vice Presidency.  Obama has openly admitted he will circumvent Congress when Congress doesn’t do what he, Obama, wants.

Wow! Do we really want a man in office who feels no responsibility to follow the laws he swore to uphold?  Do we truly want a man in the Presidency who continually divides our nation with his harsh critiques of those who disagree with him?

Obama is the poster child for the consequences of voting based on the media’s image and not on research that would have revealed Obama’s inadequacies.  After all, everyone knew, even though the media tried to downplay it, that Obama came into office with no executive experience….no business experience….no managerial experience….no foreign policy experience…..and, no moral fiber.  While he might be a “nice” guy, he is not a stand-up guy as Lieberals often say.  Instead,  he has repeatedly thwarted the laws of our country.  He rammed Obamascare through, even when polls proved that Americans did NOT want it.  He has refused to enforce our immigration laws.  He challenges states that do NOT  “obey” HIS opinions.  He calls the Tea Party names while he endorses the Occupy bunch knowing that the Occupy bunch has had numerous run-ins with the police while the Tea Party was law-abiding.  He showed his racist tendencies when he blamed the police for how they treated a professor — oh, yes, the professor was black — and then, recanted on his promise to “make nice” with the police.  He shows his favoritism when he plays class warfare games and incites division by his use of untruths…all in order to be re-elected.

Obama is not only arrogant, irresponsible, condescending, AND spending our tax money like it grew on trees, but he is destroying our country and our system of laws!

In short, you had better do exactly what Obama says or he will do whatever it takes, legal or not, to get his way.  If you don’t “play ball” with Obama, he’ll tell you the same as he told Congress on recess appointments……”It’s MY ball and, if you don’t follow MY rules, I’m taking it home!”

Unprecedented “Recess” Appointment Contradicts Obama Justice Department

Posted by Brendan Buck on January 04, 2012 President Obama today made an unprecedented “recess” appointment even though the Senate is not in recess – “a sharp departure from a long-standing precedent that has limited the President to recess appointments only when the Senate is in a recess of 10 days or longer,” according to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

It turns out that the action not only contradicts long-standing practice, but also the view of the administration itself. In 2010, Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained to the Supreme Court the Obama administration’s view that recess appointments are only permissible when Congress is in recess for more than three days. Here’s the exchange with Chief Justice John Roberts:
