NY Times Proves Obama Is, In Fact, Too Dim To Understand

Also stupider, dumber than dumb, and clueless. He’s the Moron-In-Chief. Pulling-off-your-mask-so-the-clerk-of-the-bank-you’re-robbing-can-hear-you dumb. Hey, those were Ted Rall’s words, and, I think we can all take as gospel that Ted, like a broken clock, is on to something, as prove by this NY Times article: Obama Making Plans to Use Executive Power

With much of his legislative agenda stalled in Congress, President Obama and his team are preparing an array of actions using his executive power to advance energy, environmental, fiscal and other domestic policy priorities.

I wonder when the left, and Obama, will pitch the same type of fit they enjoyed while Bush was president? I’ll get to that in a bit

Mr. Obama has not given up hope of progress on Capitol Hill, aides said, and has scheduled a session with Republican leaders on health care later this month. But in the aftermath of a special election in Massachusetts that cost Democrats unilateral control of the Senate, the White House is getting ready to act on its own in the face of partisan gridlock heading into the midterm campaign.

He is also considering the use of recess appointments. Didn’t he whine about those when Bush did the same? That said, something seems to be missing from his signing statements agenda

Mr. Obama has already decided to create a bipartisan budget commission under his own authority after Congress refused to do so. His administration has signaled that it plans to use its discretion to soften enforcement of the ban on openly gay men and lesbians serving in the military, even as Congress considers repealing the law. And the Environmental Protection Agency is moving forward with possible regulations on heat-trapping gases blamed for climate change, while a bill to cap such emissions languishes in the Senate.

Just like during a good chunk of his first year, his second year is going the same way, namely, he is still ignoring the economy and jobs, which are the top two priorities with the American people, as poll after poll after poll proves out. He is even planning a push on health care related issues through his Executive administrations.

After a bit in which the Times mentions that Obama has been critical over Bush’s use of signing statements, they mention

…but aides said last month that he still reserves the right to ignore sections of bills he considers unconstitutional if objections have been lodged previously by the executive branch.

Here’s a novel idea, one which apparently is eluding the Smartest Man On The Planet: do not sign the bill if it contains sections considered unconstitutional. Whip out ye olde Veto Pen, and send that puppy back.

As said and written ad nauseum, Obama is in way over his head. Furthermore, the notion that he cares little nothing about the plight of the American people has become crystal clear. Personally, I would not begrudge him the use of signing statements and recess appointments if he was at least engaged on the economy, but, at this time, he is divorced from reality, and caught up in his own little progressive world.
