Constitution? What Constitution?

Thank goodness we don’t have a Republican president! If we did, we would be in the midst of a constitutional crisis. Imagine this scenario: an American president announces that, rather than taking care that the laws be faithfully executed, as the Constitution requires, the federal government henceforth will enforce only those provisions of federal law with which he personally agrees. Not only that, if Congress declines to enact legislation that he demands, he will issue executive orders having the force of law as though such legislation were in effect. And if you oppose him, he will send the IRS to harass you and have his corrupt Department of Justice charge you with a bogus felony if he can come up with a pretext, or maybe even if he can’t. If that president were a Republican, he would have been impeached by now. Fortunately, he is a Democrat, so our “reporters” and “editors” can confine themselves to Chris Christie’s traffic jam, Justin Bieber and the upcoming Super Bowl.

A few observers have noticed, like Michael Ramirez:


Maybe one of these days the rest of our “free press” will notice, too.
