Law Professor says Obama has “assumed king-like powers as President”
President Obama has done more to turn the office of the president into a monarchy than anyone else. : That’s not just my opinion:
A Law Professor at George Mason University is afraid that we are on the horizon of a crowning government. Professor and author, Francis Buckley, is ready to state that President Obama will be, “the most consequential American president since George Washington.”
Buckley says George Washington was considered the “indispensable man” when he left the seat of President, but President Obama will be acknowledged as “the person who assumed king-like powers as President.”
Buckley explains that while this government didn’t start with President Obama, he has certainly taken it to a higher level. The professor says that the way President Obama makes and unmakes laws without consent on Congress; the spending of government dollars; committing America to war; and rewarding his friends while punishing his enemies makes him “rex quondam, rex futurus — the once and future king.”
He could not have done this without a Congress unwilling to stop it. : We know why Harry Reid has allowed the Senate to get rolled, but Boehner and the Republican controlled houe should being doing so much more to stop Obama’s power grabs.
What do you say?
