Obama: “Problem Is That I’m the President of the United States”

Most news organizations are focusing on the end of a quote President Obama recently unleashed in a Google hangout…

Via the Weekly Standard:

In a Google hangout last evening, President Barack Obama explained that his problem is that he’s “not the emperor of the United States”.

But it is the first part of the statement in its quoted form that caught my eye:

“This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency,” said Obama. “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”

Here is the video…



Couldn’t have said it any better myself, Mr. President.  The problem – one of them anyway – is indeed that you’re the President of the United States.

Speaking of executing laws that are passed, how’s that whole ‘enforcing immigration law’ working out for you?

From the Blaze in August:

A group of immigration agents filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration Thursday, saying they are sick of being told not to do their jobs, a feeling intensified by the president’s new non-deportation policy and a previous memo directing them not to arrest certain illegal immigrants.

And last year when the Justice Department decided they would no longer enforce the Defense of Marriage Act.

Then of course there’s that pesky law about budgets

“On or after the first Monday in January but not later than the first Monday in February of each year, the President shall submit a budget of the United States Government for the following fiscal year.”

— Chapter 11 of Title 31 of the United States Code, enacted as the Congressional Budget Act of 1974.

What are citizens to do when their government refuses to follow its own laws?

So let’s not all of a sudden pretend its President Obama’s job to execute laws that are passed, unless you assume the definition of ‘execute’ involves putting those laws out of their misery.

I’ll give you a more accurate quote – “The problem is that I’m the President of the United States … but I act like the Emperor.”
