 Obama Proves, Once Again, That Laws Don’t Apply to Him

7 March 2013 / 158 comments

President Obama has grown fond of saying that he’s “not a dictator,” “not a king,” and “not the emperor,” but is instead “the president.” Whether his tendency to clarify a seemingly obvious point reveals his inner desires or not, his actions in a variety of ways suggest that he doesn’t think the president shares his fellow citizens’ ongoing obligation to obey the law. To the contrary, he seems to view the president as being somewhat above the law.

The latest example involves Obama’s legal obligation to submit a budget by the first Monday in February. We’ve now passed the first Monday in March, yet there’s no indication that Obama intends to submit a budget anytime soon.

According to the House Budget Committee, in the 88 years from 1921 through 2008 (the year that President George W. Bush submitted his final budget), the president was a full week late submitting his budget only four times. Obama has now single-handedly matched that mark. In fact, Obama now holds the modern (1921-onward) presidential records for most times being a week late in submitting a budget (4, shattering the previous record of 1), most times being a month late in submitting a budget (2, breaking the previous record of 1), and most times being three months late in submitting a budget (1, breaking the previous record of 0).

If any of our so-called Representatives were not either cowards or conspirators in Obama's actions, they would be would have done something long ago the only way you can prove me wrong this to actually get off your backside and do something.
