President Barack Obama recently said, “I think this is the nature of being president. What is frustrating people is that I have not been able to force Congress to implement every aspect of what I said in 2008.

Well, it turns out our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change that I would like sometimes.

Force Congress?

"This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency," said Obama. "The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed."

Obama apparently believes the Constitution is irrelevant, an outdated document that cannot be applied today’s society. He would love to be emperor and have a lifetime of presidency. This man is clearly a danger to our country.
