Obama Is A Dictator: Congress Provides Evidence That Obama Seeks to Become 3rd Term Dictator
If the president can kill with drones, suspend immigration laws, and tap your phones what can’t he do?
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) fears that the Obama administration’s refusal to enforce immigration laws could lead to Obama himself failing to enforce election laws, a concern voiced amidst calls by some for Obama to run for a third term in office.
During a House Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday, Gowdy asked Simon Lazarus, senior counsel to the Constitutional Accountability Center, “If the president can fail to enforce immigration laws, can the president likewise fail to enforce election laws?”
Lazarus responded “no,” to which Gowdy shot back, “Why not? If he can suspend mandatory minimum and immigration laws, why not election laws?”
“Because we live in a government of laws, and the president is bound to obey them and apply them,” Lazarus answered. Gowdy responded by reiterating that Obama was not applying immigration and marijuana laws, a stance with which Lazarus disagreed.
Gowdy subsequently asked George Washington University Law School Professor Jonathan Turley what the likelihood of the administration suspending election laws was, to which Turley responded, “I think that some of these areas I can’t imagine to be justified through prosecutorial discretion. It’s not prosecutorial discretion to go into a law and say, an entire category of people will no longer be subject to the law. That’s a legislative decision.”
Turley added that the country was currently embroiled in “the most serious constitutional crisis in my lifetime” and that Congress was becoming increasingly irrelevant.
According to recent reports, it appears that one college professor has been toting an absurd solution for “fixing” our nation’s problems: voting President Obama into a third term.
While most of us shudder at the thought, Jonathan Zimmerman, a history professor at New York University, recently wrote an article for The Washington Post, in which he suggested that the U.S. government allow Obama to serve for a third term.
According to Zimmerman, who even addresses Obama’s 37 percent approval rating, Obama would be more effective at governing if he was allowed to run in the 2016 election. Zimmerman argued that this action would make the current President “less likely to ignore the will of the American people.”
“It’s time to put that power back where it belongs,” Zimmerman wrote in his article. “Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for reelection just as citizens should be allowed to vote for—or against—him. Anything less diminishes our leaders and ourselves.”
What do you think? Are Zimmerman’s comments completely absurd?
