Honolulu (AP) says Obama calculated he no longer needs Congress in 2012 to promote his agenda. He could benefit in his re-election campaign if lawmakers accomplish little.
Don Stewart - spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) said, "It's disappointing that job creation, energy security, tax reform and preventing everyone's taxes from going up aren't on the presidents must do list."
Obama believes he can move forward with his campaign by using Executive Action (E O's to try boosting economy. There are no issues pressing him in 2012 that he feels are important.
Josh Earnest said he will have a larger playing field . If that includes Congress all the better, but that is no longer a requirement. If all fails White House says he will focus exclusively on Executive Orders. Earnest said Obama will come out with 2 or 3 directives per week.
What does this mean for the working class?
I believe Obamas greed for power surpasses his concern for the people. Once he no longer needs congress by using E O's he can easily promote his Socialist Agenda.
By using this power it doesn't mean that jobs matter any longer. He can blame it all on Congress. This is a tool he loves to use, look at President Bush. Obama cried for 3 years how everything was his fault.
He could become the first president to be elected with an unemployment rate between 8 & 9 %.
The sad part Liberals seem to want his transformation. I can't figure out if they want everything free of if they care nothing for the future of their children and grand-children.
I hope I'm wrong but wonder if we are seeing the same transformation used by Hitler.
If Republican Contenders and Congress continue to fight one another all could be lost.
Socialism or worse could become the fate for America. I believe we are in for a wild ride in 2012. My only hope is voters on both sides will wake up to what is happening. Source
