Newt Gingrich’s Presidential campaign should now be over, with his latest bizarre and ridiculous proclamation:
Newt Gingrich says as president he would ignore Supreme Court decisions that conflicted with his powers as commander in chief, and he would press for impeaching judges or even abolishing certain courts if he disagreed with their rulings.
“I’m fed up with elitist judges” who seek to impose their “radically un-American” views, Gingrich said Saturday in a conference call with reporters.
Another life long politician who thinks he is above the law and can use the power of the Presidency to threaten and coerce others to bend to his will.
What is wrong in DC right now is the fact that this same childish mentality is running rampant through out the political and bureaucratic elites. This is how we got Obamacare crammed down our throats. This is why there was a 2010 backlash vote against incumbents and the Democrats. This is the very cancer that has the Senate and Super Committee running around circumventing our constitution and laws and getting NOWHERE.
Congress has failed to fulfill their duty for going on 3 years now by not passing budgets. When has that ever been allowed? The President bypasses the Congressional confirmation process through recess appointments and creating Czars.. The Senate and House define bills ‘deemed’ (e.g., already passed) when the bill has never once had a vote logged on it. The list of infractions goes on and on. And that is just the normal day-to-day business crap.
There are kickbacks to political cronies all through the government. The fools that brought us the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac 2008 subprime implosion retired filthy rich after wiping out the savings of tens of millions of hard working Americans. Teachers have been caught cheating on tests to garner raises and bonuses.
The administration has been flaunting the constitutional oversight role of Congress by covering up their insane and deadly gun walker program. The administration refuse to release information on all the Solyndra’s out there, where tax payers bail out failed green companies – all with ties to the Obama campaign. The country is falling apart due to rampant disregard for the law – like trying to mandate people buy a product (health insurance) because the politicians don’t have the spine to fix their messes. The number one problem in America is the fact the federal government is out of control and running outside its constitutional limits.
And Newt’s idiotic answer is to flaunt the law and separation of powers even more?
