Mark Levin: 'Imperial President' Obama is 'Arrogant as Hell!'Topics:
Mark Levin, one of America's preeminent conservative commentators and a constitutional lawyer, pulls no punches on "America Live" with Megyn Kelly ... and the "arrogant as hell" comment is just about the nicest thing he has to say about Obama:
Via Fox Nation:
"I'm not into imperial presidents who act imperial and speak imperial and Obama forgets there's a Constitution. Yeah he keeps telling us he won reelection. Congratulations. But guess what, the Constitution wasn't up for election. It's not up for a plebiscite or a referendum. He has to comply with it too. He was sent back to Washington but he's got a strict list of rules that he has to follow as president.Spot-on, and saying what many are thinking now ... and many more will be saying later. But the problem is that the damage Obama is doing to our freedoms, liberties, and the nation's solvency is, more likely than not, going to be irreparable by the time he gets out of office. Meanwhile, he's "transforming" America into a country that none of us, regardless of our political label, are going to recognize.
"So when he gets up there and he starts saying 'if Congress doesn't do this, I'm gonna do this unilaterally', it violates separation of powers a lot of the times. And this is a man who's been pushing the edge of the envelope as far as I'm concerned whether it's the appointment clause, whether it's his unilateral action on immigration, whether it's his trashing the commerce clause and the tax clauses on Obamacare. Now they're talking about executive orders on the 2nd amendment, they've issued regulations on the first amendment attacking religious liberty -- this notion that he might be able to lift the debt ceiling unilaterally under the 14th amendment -- what the hell is this? He was elected president, congratulations. This guy makes Richard Nixon look like a man who followed the law all the time.
"I think we have an imperial president. He sounds imperial, he's arrogant as hell. And so I'm furious about this and I'm gonna tell you why.
"We are a magnificent country. We don't need to be turned upside down, we don't need to run from crisis to crisis to crisis. He's bankrupting this country.
"He says we've had a discussion about the debt. When did we have a discussion about the debt? We've had a debate about taxes. The man's never around to have a discussion about anything. So yes, he causes me to be furious when I watch him and listen to him!"
