Obama believes in the rule of law- his law. No other law is relevant. No other law matters. When Obama speaks, he expects the world to obey.
In his Tuesday night performance, he said “I will meet with the chairman of BP and inform him that he is to set aside whatever resources are required to compensate the workers and business…” “Inform him?” Where does Barack Hussein Obama get the authority to issue orders to the CEO of a private corporation? There is no such authority in the Constitution. There is no law that empowers the president to “inform” the CEO of any corporation how he will spend the corporation’s money. Obama couldn’t care less about the Constitution or the law.
There was no Constitutional authority for him to essentially take over General Motors and Chrysler, or the banks. Obama couldn’t care less about the law. When he speaks, he expects the world to obey.
There is no Constitutional authority for the federal government to require American citizens to purchase health insurance or any other product or service. It doesn’t matter. Obama spoke; his Congressional majority of comrades obeyed.
