Obama in Burma: ‘I cannot just impose my will on Congress, even though sometimes I wish I could’

During a lengthy speech at the University of Yangon in Burma, President Obama signaled the important traits of American democracy, particularly his limited powers as president.

“As President, I cannot just impose my will on Congress — the Congress of the United States — even though sometimes I wish I could,” he stated. “The legislative branch has its own powers and its own prerogatives, and so they check my power and balance my power.”

Obama also mentioned his responsibilities as Commander-In-Chief of the United States Military were limited by civilians.

“America may have the strongest military in the world, but it must submit to civilian control,” he said. “I, as the President of the United States, make determinations that the military then carries out, not the other way around. As President and Commander-In-Chief, I have that responsibility because I’m accountable to the people. ”

Keep it up, Barack, and you’ll see who the military answers to.

    He can’t impose his will?! Then why in the name of sweet fancy Moses is he repeatedly imposing his will via Executive Orders? What a lying sack of shit.

    He can’t impose his will on Congress… so he is circumventing Congress.
    Obumbles is telling us in no uncertain terms what he intends to do… just like with Joe the Plumber. We ignore it at our peril.

    “… they check MY power and balance MY power … I would be able to save the world if it wasn’t for the Kryptonite that is Congress …”

    They are supposed to check and balance his power, but somehow that system has seemed to have failed.

    He does look more natural in front of a bamboo backdrop, don’t he?

    He’s at home there.

    That’s false modesty he is pretending to there. He has circumvented congress and has every intention of doing so as often as politically possible and with the Obama Fan Club parading as the press that will be quite often indeed.

    I hope his innoculations were administered at a low level. It would be hilarious to see him shock and awe cholera at the next international press conference.

    I’ll bet he admires Burmas dictator, and everything he’s saying about Congress is actually a complaint.

    May the manic TU fairy bestow many blessings upon the dicktaster comment.

    Can I get a second for nominating MJA for best comment of the week?

    That incessant troublemaer deliberately stirs up trouble wherever he goes.

    Watch: It won’t be long now before there will be events in Burma and Cambodia similar to recent events in Tunisia and Egypt.

    Remember, you read it here first,

    If I was a country’s leader, I would forbid that evil lunatic from ever entering my country.

    Rush mentioned something today on his show that Obama will be searching for a way to get a third term. I do not doubt that. I did not hear the rest b/c helping with my kids’ Catholic school to set up for a Thanksgiving feast tomorrow.
