This president is done with Congress, writes Daniel Henninger in The Wall Street Journal. Henninger is talking about an administration with abusive unilateral authority. Henninger refers to Obama’s recent Jacksonville speech where, near the end, the president boldly pronounced, “So where I can act on my own, I’m going to act on my own. I won’t wait for Congress.”
Sounds like an approach leaning toward tyranny to me. Section. 2. of Article. II. in the Constitution clearly lays out the few and specific duties of the President. The list is real short. Article. II. says that the president shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed. No wording or interpretation says anything about the president acting unilaterally on making laws or having any part at all in the law making process.
