Whining impatience with a pesky Congress backed up by a threat to
govern rule by newly assumed executive authority is not merely a character flaw, a childish tantrum, a legitimate difference of management technique, nor a misunderstanding of the nature of a republic.
It is an indication of a basic contempt for the very idea of a republic.
It is a clear overthrow of the fundamental architecture of the US Constitution.
It is a mortal danger to both the Constitution and the Republic.
It is an insult to the American people.
It is a betrayal of the American people.

Stilton (17) reminded me that I forgot to make a point.
The Obama administration’s frustration with “the legislative process” clearly indicates that they do recognize that a Constitutional Republic based on the Separation of Powers into three Branches of Gov’t with a Bicameral Legislature operating under arcane rules and constrained by a difficult-to-amend Constitution is “no way to run a railroad.”
What Progressives fail to acknowledge is that it’s not the Federal Government’s friggin’ job to “run a railroad.” If you want the “trains to run on time,” there are other forms of gov’t (e.g. Mussolini’s Fascists) and private enterprises designed to do just that.
The FedGov’s job is not to run railroads but to protect our lives, liberties, way of life, property, overseas interests, etc., and rights.
The US Constitution establishes a fundamental governing process that is intended to make gov’t incapable of being run as easily, efficiently, and responsively as Progressivism (or any other statist -ism) wants/needs it to be. The Constitution is designed to be a pain in the @ss for a wannabe tyrant to deal with.
Yeah, presidentin’s hard; but the job wouldn’t impact Obama’s golf game nearly as much, if he’d stick to a president’s constitutionally authorized duties.
