Today, during a visit to Thomas Jefferson’s home of Monticello with French President Hollande, President Obama jokingly stated, “That’s the good thing as a president, I can do whatever I want.”
Of course this was spoken as he was breaking visitors’ protocol, and walked to the off-limits Jefferson terrace. The real issue is about dumb luck and coincidence because the press pool report of this absurd “slip of the lip” came right as it was revealed that the White House plans to unilaterally delay the Obamacare employer mandate for businesses with 50 to 99 employees. And 72 hours ago, Obama unilaterally decided to change the immigration rules for those who have provided “limited material support” to terrorism — as we reported over the weekend.
So, let’s not go rushing around trying to use these words to condemn President Obama as a tyrant. We’ll play right into the hands of liberals as over-reacting and not realizing the “nuanced context” of his words.
However, these words are evidence of how absolutely stupid Obama is to say so — at a time when he actually is doing whatever he wants. This joker does a good enough job condemning himself.
