I’m a bit conflicted here because I realize getting Obama a crown could further perpetuate his delusions of grandeur I also believe it would better indicate to people his opinion about himself. It’s more apparent every day that Obama believe himself to be an emperor. He’s been making a lot of statements as of late about wanting to get around Congress including one expressing a desire to have a magic wand that would cast of spell of bypassing the legislature:
Facing growing opposition to his economic proposals and dimming prospects that Congress will pass other parts of his agenda, President Obama told a Hispanic group in Washington Wednesday that when it comes to the issue of immigration, “I’d like to work my way around Congress.”
“As I mentioned when I was at La Raza a few weeks back, I wish I had a magic wand and could make this all happen on my own,” Obama told a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. “There are times where — until Nancy Pelosi is speaker again — I’d like to work my way around Congress.”
Basically he’s saying, “Congress are mean and won’t do exactly as I say! If they won’t do what I say then I’ll just ignore them!” The idea behind having the legislature and executive branch being separate entities was to prevent assholes with desires to rule from being able to accomplish their goals. This separation of power hasn’t work that well in this country because the Congress is made up of spineless cowards who refuse to enforce it. The first time a president used an executive order to create law members of Congress should have started impeachment hearings. Instead they let it slide and continued to let violations of presidential power slide because it’s a convenient way for Congress to avoid having to take responsibility.
Now we have a president who brazenly states that he’s going to find any way to bypass the Congress he can. The presidency is now a de facto dictatorship and each president realizes this a bit more than his predecessor. Even Bush went to Congress for their rubber stamp approval before sending our military off to blow up brown people; meanwhile Obama couldn’t be bothered to do even that.
