The Hollow Shell of a Republic

A mere half of the electorate understands that Obama despises the reps of the people, the lawgivers, the Congress of the United States.
From his infamous, “If Congress doesn’t act, I will,” to yesterday when he cautioned Congress not to make a future fuss over raising the debt limit, Obama regards Congress as nothing more than a legitimizing rubber stamp . . . to give the facade of law to his diktats.
Obama is drunk with power, and not only wants more of it, he wants it all. Absent opposition, which disappeared yesterday evening, he is set to get what he wants and more. Never forget that last night’s legislation went from the President to the Senate to the House and back to its source in less than twenty-four hours. This is not deliberation, this is tyranny dressed up as republican government.
