Obama heads for Constitutional Crisis

Law Prof. Turley: Obama Risks Constitutional Crisis With Executive Action

President Barack Obama is acting like “a bad gambler at Vegas” by doubling down on executive actions less than a week after a stinging Supreme Court defeat, says George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley.

A defiant Obama promised to take even more executive actions on Monday because Congress has told him it will not pass any immigration reform laws this year.

“If House Republicans are really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, the best solution to that is passing bills. Pass a bill. Solve a problem,” Obama said in a Rose Garden press conference.

Turley, appearing on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report, ” called that “a pretty surprising statement” considering that “the ink is barely dry” on Thursday’s 9-0 decision saying Obama was wrong to have made recess appointments when the Senate had declared itself to be in session.

“For him now to double down makes him look like a bad gambler at Vegas,” said Turley, who agrees with many of Obama’s policies, but has warned of a constitutional crisis if Obama continues implementing those policies by bypassing Congress.

“At some point this is going to cause serious problems for his administration. He’s going to start to lose Democrats,” Turley said. “The president of the United States can’t say the solution to gridlock is you simply have to resolve it on my terms.”

There’s a reason the issues aren’t being resolved, Turley said: “Congress is divided because the public is divided in these areas.”

Turley said the past 10 days have been “abysmal” for the administration.

“He was found to be in violation of the Fourth Amendment on privacy, then another case found him in violation of separation of powers. Now he’s been found in violation of religious rights in the First Amendment” in the Hobby Lobby case, Turley said.

“It doesn’t get much worse than this for a president.”

    Constitutional crisis !!!!! Wait til he’s as old as I am – he’ll have one every morning – and it’s not bullshit – it’s the real thing.

    And Turley is a leftist saying this and has been about Obama. He sure is pushing the envelope and I hope he gets brought down again. Such arrogance after he’s been given a back hand from SCOTUS, all of them over his overreach of power. That man is incorrigible.


    • bullright says:

      We can only hope, in some way. They keep saying Obama is the Constitutional lawyer in the WH. Truth has no meaning anymore. Turley hasn’t disappeared yet, I wonder if he can expect an audit?


      • peppermintfarm says:

        Bull, I think Turley is in for the worst of treatments like a hatchet to his head. An audit would be too little for his “crime” against the emperor.

        That dumbbell never even read the Constitution I bet and he’s no expert. I guess he read enough to see where he might get away with anything and the lapdog media protecting him what’s the worry eh?


        • bullright says:

          Pepp, ” He read enough to see where he might get away with anything” – oh you’re so right there. And his crew of Scissorhands do the rest. Certainly no expert. I think you’d have to care to be an expert. All he cares about is what he wants.

          And I thought Cintons were bad. Plus now he has that shadow media/government that Hillzy helped create. What more does a usurping tyrant need?


          • peppermintfarm says:


            With this monster we have now, one almost wishes we had Bill Clinton back. Now not really do I want him back but the comparison is stark. At least Clinton worked with Congress or was forced to do so. This moron just plain refuses to work with them and then accuses the Repubs of being the ones who obstruct when it’s him doing it.

            The Emperor had all he wants and does what he wants. So I can’t figure why he keeps complaining except to make sure Hillary gets elected in 2016 and can finish us off.
