The royal “we”

On October 24, Presbo told a crowd at a campaign speech event in Las Vegas (in a state hit particularly hard by the downturn of the economy brought on by the policies of the lib/prog Congress for the last 5 years, but that voted for Harry Reid anyway):  “I’m here to say that we can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won’t act, I will,”

Pretty sure that the Constitution, in Article One, Section One says that “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

Pretty sure that this means that all the authority to make any laws or to do anything that is in the power of the federal government.  The authority of the people that sends their representatives to DC to act on their behalf.  So that  makes me really wonder…

Who is this “we” that can’t wait?

    Now we both know the answer to the query at the end of your post. What I would like to read are responses by the more, shall we say, liberal amongst us.

    I’m pretty sure you’re right, Drik!

    It’s a sad testament to the state of our nation when a president can talk about bypassing congress and the Constitution and it barely raises any eyebrows. It should be on the front page of every newspaper.

    Jefferson wrote that if a monarchist be discovered in the US government, and the president does not immediately fire him, then the president has violated his oath of office.
    Seems that bypassing Congress and the Consitution would fit the definition of a monarchist.
