Barack Obama is frustrated with the Constitution’s separation of powers which is surprising since he ignores it for the most part. It’s so difficult dealing with congress, state governments, the private sector, it’s “like herding cats,” he told an audience in Argentina.
Mr. Obama has a lot of problems with our system of government.
Obama said the constitution has “deep flaws” during a September 2001 Chicago public radio program, adding that the country’s Founding Fathers had “an enormous blind spot” when they wrote it.
Obama also remarked that the Constitution “reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day.”
In March, 2011, according to a New York Times article, Mr. Obama told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, “No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.” One official put it this way, “No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.”
Never mind that there is no real president of China. The communists don’t elect, they select.
In 2011, he blamed the “big, messy, tough democracy” for his problems.
“It’s been a long, tough journey. But we have made some incredible strides together. Yes, we have. But the thing that we all ought to remember is that as much as good as we have done, precisely because the challenges were so daunting, precisely because we we were inheriting so many challenges, that we’re not even halfway there yet. When I said ‘change we can believe in’ I didn’t say ‘change we can believe in tomorrow.’ Not change we can believe in next week. We knew this was going to take time because we’ve got this big, messy, tough democracy,” President Obama said at a campaign fundraiser in Chicago in April 2011.
It’s March 2015 and Obama is frustrated with the the separation of powers. This is what he said in Argentina:
“I also think that one of the great advantages of the United States system, even though it is very frustrating sometimes for the president, is that power is distributed across a lot of different institutions – it’s what we call separation of powers and decentralization …it’s like herding cats…The advantage is that even if we end up with someone that I don’t consider a great president, there is a limit to some of the damage that they can do because — and I am sure Republicans feel that about me. They are glad that there is the distribution of powers because they imagine that I’d have turned the United States into Cuba I suppose. They tend to exaggerate a little bit on how I see the world. But that’s why I think the United States has been stable.”
Why is he frustrated? He ignores the separation of powers. There is no exaggeration by the GOP, he’s delusional and there has been little to limit his rampage through the constitution because he ignores it. He said that dealing with the separation of powers is like “herding cats” as if he somehow negotiates.
He is traveling to communist and socialist nations apologizing for the United States, insulting Americans and mocking the Republican party, all while he’s pretending he respects the “frustrating” separation of powers.
