The liberal news media ranted against Republican presidents for supposedly overreaching their powers yet are silent regarding imperial President Obama.
Obama granted himself unprecedented domestic powers and violated the Constitutional requirement to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed."
Congress refuses to pass a law? Obama imposed it via fiat (carbon emission restrictions via EPA regulations, card check via a stacked National Labor Relations Board, net neutrality via Federal Communications Commission, bailouts in violation of contract law, amnesty via executive order and more).
Don't like a law? Don't enforce it, ignore it or grant unauthorized waivers to political allies, (such as the Defense of Marriage Act, No Child Left Behind Act, War Powers Act, slow-walking permits for oil, gas and coal projects).
Obama defied subpoenas and declared executive privilege to prevent release of Fast and Furious gun-walking documents (so much for promised "transparency"), made "recess" appointments when the Senate was not in recess, created a political enemies list and publicly attacked them, sued Arizona for enforcing federal laws and other states who dared question voter registrations, and intimidated the Supreme Court into the judicial betrayal of rewriting Obamacare to make it constitutional.
Selective editing by news media to purposefully deceive their audiences about Obama's lawless usurpations of authority must stop!
