Obama’s Administration Above All Limits, Laws?

Federal court: “EPA seems reluctant to acknowledge any textual limits on its authority 

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has invalidated the Environmental Protection Agency’s Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, which would have punished America’s to 28 electricity generating states. The judges said that President Obama’s EPA does not seem to acknowledge any limits on its authority.

Both Democratic and Republican judges around the country have been striking down Obama regulations on constitutional grounds. It’s clear that this administration has little regard for constitutional limits.

As Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in a 2011 decision against the administration, “[F]ederalism protects the liberty of the individual from arbitrary power. When government acts in excess of its lawful powers, that liberty is at stake.”

Here are some other examples of the Obama administration’s disregard for constitutional limits on its authority:

Starting to see a pattern? Let’s hope America sees it before November 6–because, as President Obama told then-Russian president Dmitri Medvedev, “After my election, I’ll have more flexibility.” Just imagine more flexibility with the law and Constitution than we’ve already seen!

    Ranger:Are you a veteran? Or is that just your name that you chose? How are we winnnig Iraq at $12 billion a month after 6 years? Winning from whom, the Shias or the Sunnis? Are we in power or just an occupying force? Should we stay there another 6 years? What exactly are we winnnig? I’m guessing you are not a veteran and you may not be employed either because you have so much time to email on this site and probably a dozen others. Why do you suppose more enlisted men and women are voting for Obama than McCain? Maybe they are tired after four and five deployments with no end in sight and constantly changing goals. How’s the fight going in Afghanistan, did we catch the man behind 9-11? Oh we didn’t? Maybe you think we did and any day we’re going to find the WMD or any evidence of the imminent threat from a dirty bomb about to be launched from Iraq all the way to the U.S. The only thing funny about you is that 6 years later, you still believe the Right Wing lies. Even most right wingers don’t believe it any more. Come to think of it, you aren’t funny. Just sad.Joe
