Obama: ‘That’s the good thing about being president, I can do anything I want’

While walking with the French president at Monticello, President Obama was heard saying, “That’s the good thing about being president: I can do anything I want.” Although said in jest, the offhanded comment reveals something about his mindset.

To find the most recent examples of Obama’s cavalier attitude, look no further than the newest change to the Affordable Care Act and the easing of restrictions to immigrants with terror contacts — both done without congressional approval.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked her guest, Fox Senior legal analyst Andrew Napolitano Monday, “Is it legal?” The short answer: no.

“It seems to be getting worse and worse,” Napolitano told Kelly.

Watch the exchange via Fox News.


On Monday, the Obama administration announced that it was once again delaying the employer mandate for businesses with 50 to 99 employees. In order to take advantage of the delay, companies would have to prove they didn’t cut their workforce in order to fall within the range, according to The Hill.

House Republican Leader Eric Cantor,R-Va., said the new delay meant that employees of medium-sized businesses wouldn’t feel the pain until “after Election Day.”

Coincidence? As FDR noted many years ago, there are no coincidences in politics.

Cantor later tweeted his comparison of Obamacare’s failure to that of the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics, saying:

Obamacare fail

“And, once again, the president is rewriting law on a whim,” Boehner said in his statement. “If the administration doesn’t believe employers can manage the burden of the law, how can struggling families be expected to?”

But what Boehner fails to realize is that Obama is the president — he can do anything he wants.

    I’d like to know who overheard that exchange and if that is reliable. That sounds pretty made up to me, just another lie to help R’s slam Obama.

    Kinda’ silly to make this flippant comment into an issue. However, you’d never EVER hear this president say, “That’s the nice thing about being American; you can do whatever you want.” It’s not in his marrow to believe in free things like free people and free enterprise — only “free” money for his voters.

    Though ran like a demonacracy, ours is yet a republic. Everyone in office “represents” us, because we are the actual government.

    Maybe it’s time to take the back door in, since everyone, whether demonocrat, rhino, republicrap or other are defending this despotic POS.

    Conditional to taking office, each public official took and oath to defend our laws and constitutions. Clearly, our public officials are not in compliance with their oaths, if only by ratification.

    In law, doing nothing can constitute ratification. It can also be equated to negligence, in many instances. Accordingly, state legislators, Congressmen and Senators may be vulnerable to suit for injuries to the property (a case law search verifies liberties, or freedoms, are property right).

    Think outside the box: We The People may do ANY act not proscribed by law, in contrast with government, which may only do acts prescribed by law.

    G.W. Bush said it and its also did it! Why can”t Obama? OH THATS RIGHT, HE’S BLACK!

    1. bill says:

      What has BLACK got to do with anything? It had a lot to do with things when the Democrats were raping little black girls, terrorizing black families with their KKK headed by major Democratic party leaders George Wallace, Robert Byrd, Lester Maddox, Bull Conner, and all the other R A C I S T s Democratic leaders! Lynchings, murders, blowing up churches and killing innocent black children, burning crosses anytime a black family tried to better themselves and move into a white neighborhood! Dragging black men behind their pick up trucks until their bones were shining and you couldn’t tell what color that poor person was from all the blood and flesh! Republicans fought side by side as Freedom Riders to put an end to the Democratic party’s terror against black families! Many died for the cause at the hands of the Democrat’s KKK! Democrats are and have been the most evil party to ever exist in America! They LIE and DECEIVE everyone about the hatred they had for black families and point their evil little fingers at everyone else! They won’t let Blacks progress and succeed because they are afraid they will learn the truth about their evil past and all the Blacks they killed –It is a shame that such an evil political party ever existed in America! It still hasn’t changed, they still control the Black population with their old white men and women who were alive when their party was committing these atrocities against Black families!! It is a shame!

      Sure didn’t take long for somebody to inject race into a discussion about a statement that the Economist-in-Training made.

      The race card is getting old. Try a new talking point. Besides, I don’t hate Obama’s black half. I hate his WHITE half.

      He’s equal in both parts, remember???

      1. luciteehee says:

        WRONG, Mack! He is only about 10% black! But if he had used his 90% mixed heritage he would NEVER have been elected! It would have required CAREFUL vetting, which he was able to side-step, go around, circumvent, and ignore, by using the 10%! All he had to do was step back and let his CREATORS yell “The only reason you ask him ANY questions is because he is BLACK, and you are a RACIST”! He also HAD to use his small amount of black heritage in order to incorporate the Alinsky Doctrine! As Community Organizer in the black communities and churches, CAPITALIZING on their religious faith and LEGITIMATE complaints to declare HIMSELF the answer to their prayers! He gathered them together, organized them in groups, built, inspired, sweet-talked, flattered, mesmerized, awed and PROMISED them, until he got enough power to USE them for his OWN purpose! To eventually get into POLITICS! Once he reached his financial goal through MILLIONS that poured in for “improvements” in the communities, his trip towards our White House was assured! His “PROMISES” to the ones he declared as “I’m one of you, my brothers and sisters”, lasted about as long as an ice cube in a hot tub! They were no longer needed for his future goal! Until he ran for President! Then almost 100% voted for him, forgetting about his broken promises a few years before! He USED the black people like stepping stones in the creek to keep his feet dry! If you DOUBT that, research how much THEY, his quote: “brothers and sisters” unquote have benefited by his position as their President! In fact, how has ANY of us benefited by his position?

        1. Mack says:

          In order for him to be 10% black (or 90% Caucasian), his father would have had to have been 80% white, since 100% white (from his mother’s side) added to 80% white from his father’s side would be 180, divided in half (2 parents…) would yield a child who is 90% white (or 10% black).

          That is not the case. His father was black. Period. Barack, Sr.’s family was part of the Luo ethnicity of present-day Kenya.

          His mother was Caucasian of predominantly English ancestry, with some German, Swiss, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh ancestry.

          I understand your passion for disliking him, but please use facts instead of emotions. I don’t like the guy, either, but I am not going to produce a fairy tale just to prove my point.

          1. luciteehee says:

            And if his father was NOT Barack 0’Bama Sr. and was of mixed heritage too, say someone he looked VERY much like until he had a nose reconstruction in 2004? And as for not LIKING him, I DO like him as a person! He is good looking, Charismatic, personable, has a great sense of humor, and can even laugh at himself! He came to my City and all of us were impressed with his out-going personality! But that does NOT make him a great LEADER when he has no skills, never had a career, has lived off someone else’s dime all his life, and HATES to WORK! A position of POWER, especially Leading the greatest Nation on EARTH requires constant dedication, focus, concentration, perseverance, strategy, and responsibility! Much like playing GOLF, which I love to do! And that’s the ONLY place he applies these principles!

          2. Mack says:

            “And if his father was NOT Barack 0’Bama Sr. and was of mixed heritage too, say someone he looked VERY much like until he had a nose reconstruction in 2004?”

            Well, then THAT GUY (whomever it is of which you speak) would still have to be 80% white. It doesn’t really matter who his father is/was. In order for Barrack to be 10% black as you claim, 80% white/20% black would have to be the racial mix of his biological parents, since his mother was Caucasian.

            It’s not rocket science here. It’s simple 3rd grade mathematical percentages, or in this case, the averages of the two parents.

  5. Kana60 says:

    Said in jest? BS!! It goes along with the comment he made to Putin where he would have more flexibility to do what he wanted after the election.
    The president can’t be that stupid to think his conversations won’t be over heard.

      OH YES HE CAN!!!!

    AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY ARMY:
    REMEMBER IN 2008 WHEN THE KENYAN BORN MUSLIM STATED HE WANTED TO “FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA”.
    WELL, THAT KENYAN BORN MUSLIM SON-OF-A-BITCH IS DOING JUST THAT TO AMERICA!
    THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL PRESIDENT DID NOT MAKE THE COMMENT THAT HE CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS BECAUSE HE IS THE PRESIDENT IN JEST – HE ACTUALLY MEANT THOSE WORDS AND ALL HIS ILLEGAL EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND OTHER ACTIONS COMPLETELY IGNORING THE U.S. CONSTITUTION PROVE IT.

  8. John Craig says:

    He can’t do whatever he wants, maybe on ObamaCare but not with the creating and passing laws with a simple few words like a pharaoh, “So let it be written so let it be done”! There is still the Constitution and Congress, you bypass these two and Impeachment is coming to the WH!

    We have a rogue Marxist, Jim, who’s multiple postings here are associating Fascism with the Conservatives, I felt it was time to start posting all the Crony Capitalist actions of his beloved Dictator Obama since he has been in office. I will just post a little at a time since there are so many examples. How these morons sit by and blame us for the growth of Government and takeover of private industry while it is a blatant desire of THEIRS to control our whole existence is just so laughable!
