White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer sent an e-mail early Tuesday to preview President Obama’s plan to use his executive power in ways Americans have never seen before. “President Obama has a resolution for 2014: That this will be a year of action,” Pfeiffer said in the e-mail, pointing out that Obama would no longer be waiting around for Congress to get things done.
“Instead, the president will use his executive authority, both his pen and his phone, to work with anyone to get things done — whether they be leaders in business, education, Congress, states, or local communities,” he said.
And I think Congress should use its legislative authority, both pen and phone, to impeach this wannabe authoritarian dictator. But that’s me. Others might prefer alternative solutions: tar, feathers, like that.
