"The White House is simply bypassing the Constitution when hinders the transformation effort."
After all, the ends justify the means. This would become more prevalent and swifter in a second Obama term. He's been shown that there's basically nothing anyone can do if he chooses to violate the constitution. Conservatives shout and scream, but that doesn't matter, they don't like him to begin with. Congress mutters and gripes, but they'll never impeach another president in our lifetime. Courts hold him in contempt, but that doesn't matter.

It doesn't matter if he wins or loses. It's all gone already.

People completely fail to understand that Roosevelt already broke this ground.

I left the following comment last night at Transterrestrial Musings:
The Republican Congress won’t impeach him, no matter what. It would mean that they are racists or something. They won’t touch that with a ten foot pole.
Obama knows that, which means that there is no way to stop him. He can rule by decree with absolutely no consequences whatsoever.
Did I mention that he knows that?

This is why he must be replaced in office. Must.

I have heard that Venezuela used to be a nice little constitutional republic. Chavez came in, demagogued and intimidated his way into a dictatorship. He ignored the Venezuelan constitution.
Look how Hillary and Obama jumped on Honduras when the military acted there in support of their constitution.
As long as the leader is "doing good for the people", to hell with the constitution -- especially if said leader is a big government type. WE have been letting it happen little by little for decades. Bush was not quite as bad as Obama, or Obama's a little worse than Bush, but it is nothing new.
