Obama: “We’re not just waiting for legislation, I’ve got a pen and I can use it to sign executive orders”

The Right Scoop

President Obama held a press conference a short time ago in the White House where he emphasized that he is not waiting for legislation, that he has a pen and he will use it to sign executive orders:  

But one of the things I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting is that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need.

I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone, and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.

And I’ve got a phone that allows me to convene Americans from every walk of life, nonprofits, businesses, the private sector, universities, to try to bring more and more Americans together around what i think is a unifying theme; making sure that this is a country where if you work hard, you can make it.

And so one of the things that I’m going to be talking to my cabinet about is how do we use all the tools available to us, not just legislation, in order to advance a mission that I think unifies all Americans, the belief that everybody’s got to take responsibility, everybody’s got to work hard, but if you do, that you can support a family and meet the kinds of obligations that you have to your self and your family, but also to your communities and your neighbors.

  1. Just what planet is obama living on talking like that. Maybe he should stop his vacationing all the time and just look at what is going on here in america.

    1. Hi Digger,

      Criminal Obama is watching what is going on here in Amerika.

      His only regret is that it is taking SO LONG to destroy this country.

      The REAL problem is,.. why haven’t AMERICANS stood up?,.. said, “enough!”,…. arrested, tried, convicted,… and hung this cess-pool-rejecta for his treason,… and then… go after his real bosses,… all the way up the mafia chain to the Global-Terrorists,… the ROTHCHILDS!!!

      The real problem lies with Americans refusing to stop them,… not with the thieves, liars & cheats that have always been thieves, liars & cheats!

      JD – US Marines – There will ALWAYS be those who seek to steal from us and our county. It is OUR job to strike so much fear into them… they tremble at the mere thought of trying it!

  2. We have a Republic, not a pen and a President. You can take your pen and phone and go back to Africa on it using Vacation One Plane.

  3. EO’s or executive orders were originally created to direct the president’s cabinet agenda, ONLY. eo’s are unlawful/unconstitutional in reference to anything outside the cabinet and proves that obama could care less about the rule of law=dictator/mafioso.

  4. Here has been my experience with both people I know and ones I meet. Only morons are aware that everything is OK and the country is fine.

    Out of five people here is what my numbers show:

    Three don’t want to hear they are already in pain and are focused getting through the day, week or month. Many of these are TV couch potatoes when not working. I went to visit one of these a couple of days ago and I found her totally absorbed in a time wasting show on this woman who gets kids ready for beauty pageants. She ate it up and I tolerated it talking small talk on the commercials. To her it is a distraction away from her pain.

    One tracks the situation and is fully aware as one can be but has not a clue what to do about it. They know all the branches are corrupted along with the two parties and most of the members of Congress.

    The last one is in so much trouble they can not even put a finger on just what specific problem is affecting them and believes that our government has good intentions and will eventually fix it whatever it is. They will not say it will all come back but they do not believe a crash will come and their bank accounts and pensions are protected.

    I think we have as many as we are going to get as far as the moment but when something really big happens then I think the numbers will change.

  5. Keep pushing us, punk. Someday, soon, we’re gonna push back. And I don’t use no damn pen.

    Stay Alert, Stay Alive.

          1. That pen of his is gonna get stuck straight up his ass and out his mouth, if I have anything to say about it.

  6. King Obama is right. Congress has become obsolete. King Escobar is dead. Long live the King. And, if anybody’s looking for me, Nancy, the Obama birth certificate forger, I’ll be outside cleaning.
