In 2008, Obama said, "I taught constitutional law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we're facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that's what I intend to reverse when I'm president of the United States of America." Lancaster, PA, 2008 town hall speech during Obama's initial presidential campaign.

Everyone knows now (even if they do not have the character to admit it) what wiser people knew soon after seeing and hearing B. Obama; he is a pathological liar.
"(Presidential) Executive orders have the full force of law when they take authority from a power granted directly to the Executive by the Constitution, or are made in pursuance of certain Acts of Congress that explicitly delegate to the President some degree of discretionary power...." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_order.
The President of the United States does NOT have the right to create or change law by Presidential Executive Order. The purpose of Presidential Executive Orders is to facilitate the President in carrying out the laws passed by Congress. The fact that Congress has allowed Obama to write Executive Orders that create and/or change laws is a violation of our Constitution and a violation of the trust we have place in our elected official. Obama wants to be King and he has used Presidential Executive Order to successfully position himself as a Dictator over America.
We all recognize that Obama hates our Constitution, however that does not give him the right to violate it. Congress fails the people of the United States every time Congress allows Obama to write or change a law. "No matter how frustrated and impatient with Congress a president becomes, he has no authority to circumvent the elected representatives of the people and act as dictator or monarch."

Obama wants to write legislation (create law) on Immigration by Executive Order.
Congress is charged with writing federal laws in line with the will and the interests of the American people. The President is charged with upholding laws, not creating laws. No one man should have the power to create laws for 316 million Americans. That is a dictator! If that is the case, why do we need a highly paid Congress? Pack them up, send them home and save the Country the multi-millions of dollars per week it is costing us to have them. Replace them with minimum wage employees who vote "Yes" via email to anything Obama wants. Anyone can say "Yes" to Obama. That takes no courage, no knowledge of our Constitution and no love of our Country. Minimum wage is plenty for such people.
Obama is abusing executive orders to the point that impeachment is warranted. He knows it. Congress knows it. However, the arrogant man in the White House thinks he is above the law. Sadly, so far, he is. The reason he is above the law is because Republicans in the House refuse to hold him accountable to the Constitution. Obama knows that and laughs. Most of the rest of the world knows that and is shocked. Americans know it and have moved past shock to mourning.
