In my last post, I suggested we need to attack the structures that enable the Imperial Presidency (History Repeats Itself).
The keyboard was not yet cool from my fingers when our current president made a public declaration of his arrogance:
In a statement issued Friday night, President Obama took issue with some provisions in the budget bill – and in one case simply says he will not abide by it.
Last week the White House and congressional Democrats and Republicans were involved in intense negotiations over not only the size of the budget for the remainder of the FY2011 budget, and spending cuts within that budget, but also several GOP “riders,” or policy provisions attached to the bill.
One rider – Section 2262 — de-funds certain White House adviser positions – or “czars.” The president in his signing statement declares that he will not abide by it.

He simply will not abide by the lawful “will of the people”. Just a simple declaration, with nose up in the air: “I will not abide…”
And what of the RINO’s in congress assembled who sent this budget ‘compromise’ to the White House? What have you heard from them regarding this breach of protocol?
Spineless weasels – all of them. They betray us with a bad deal, and then sit on their thumbs while aspects of that deal are ignored.
If the president does not veto the legislation yet clearly states that he will not abide by it, where is the “rule of law” ?
Several RINO friends criticized me for statements I made back in February: WWFMD ? I think my attitude has been vindicated.
Given this sterling example of “leadership”, what reason do I have to feel compelled to obey any aspect of the law with which I disagree ?
