    So obama is going to use executive orders to circumvent Congress again. He has decided that the omnibus spending package he signed, restricts him from spending willy nilly.

    Even though the Senate will not convict I believe if he breaks the law the House should Impeach him and every time he breaks it do it again.

    Further I think they should employ the Courts. If he violates a law take it court to stop it.

    The President does not control the purse strings nor can he chose which law to obey and which to break. But the Senate will do nothing about it. We need to high light this until the election. With specific facts charges and specific laws broken and how.

    Nothing new about his attitude. He feels the same way about the Constitution.

    I'm not exactly a liberal but compared to many on the far right on these boards,,I'm a raging liberal. So just to show this thread is the result of partisan magnification of something all presidents have done...by request!

    Do any of Bush's violate the law or Constitution?

    The President does not get to decide he does not like a law and ignore it. Nor can he spend money Congress did not give him power to spend.
