[Ed. – He’s trampled the Constitution so often that it now has his footprints all over it.]
According to CNN’s Jim Acosta, Obama told his Cabinet, “We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we are providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.”
There were no phones in 1787 at the Constitutional Convention, so I need not break out my pocket Constitution to be 100% certain there is absolutely no provision in the entirety of the Constitution for the President to use a phone to bypass the constitutional process commonly known as law making.
And the only Constitutional law making power given to his precious pen is to either sign or veto a law adopted by CONGRESS, not his lobby friends (Article 1, Section 7, Paragraph 2).
Has this faux “constitutional law professor” ever even read the document?
