Let me be clear… to use one of Obama’s favorite schoolmarm quips… the fact that Congress has chosen not to do something the president wants is not a justification for the executive to act alone.
“All across America, survivors of gun violence and those who lost a child, a parent, a spouse to gun violence are forced to mark such awful anniversaries every single day,” Mr. Obama said. “And yet Congress still hasn’t done anything to prevent what happened to them from happening to other families.”
And for you lefties cheering him on, consider how you will feel in about 14 months if a Republican president decides to act unilaterally on things like abortion, unions, immigration, etc. This is a tyranny that swings all ways, which is why our Founders designed our government to have the checks and balances it does. Obama doesn’t like the fact that he has been checked, but that does not justify unilateral action on his part.
