Obama taking over

Thank you Professor Turley, of George Washington University, for your courage and forthrightness in explaining to the House Judiciary Committee how Obama has knowingly and repeatedly violated the Constitution. Our Constitution gives the power to go to war exclusively to Congress, but Obama thinks he can make a unilateral commitment of our country to war. He shifts billions in money without asking Congress for a dollar. When millions of non-conforming plans were canceled, Obama unilaterally created one exemption or change after another without authority. Congress refused the Cap and Trade Plan, so Obama just created the new National Regulations of Greenhouse Gases that he wanted. Obama has ordered all U.S. attorneys to stop prosecuting nonviolent drug crime defendants. He changed the meaning of the Wire Act. He has refused to faithfully execute the Defense of the Marriage Act. He has instructed Attorney Gen. Holder not to defend DOMA in court. Then there is the exchange of the five terrorists in exchange for the young G.I. who walked away from his post. Ladies and gentlemen, the list keeps growing. We need to get this incompetent president out of office. Is it any wonder why John Boehner is suing the government?
