Obama: 'I Can Do Whatever I Want'

President Obama’s abuses of power are well-known and numerous, so when he said within earshot of the press, “That’s the good thing as a president, I can do whatever I want,” during a tour of Monticello, he was really just confirming what we already know.

The soundbite occurred as Obama and guest, French President Hollande, were bending the rules at Monticello by touring a normally restricted area.

It was a nothing maneuver, probably done deliberately so the press would run with the quote and get conservatives’ ire up on a day when the White House once again did whatever Obama wants by unilaterally and illegally altering the Affordable Care Act, and the Department of Justice announced it will violate states’ laws on homosexual “marriage” across the country.

Obama isn’t a tyrant because of what he said; he said what he did because he’s a tyrant.

The attitude of “I can do whatever I want” is typical of Obama’s clinical narcissistic personality.

The story of Narcissus is the tale of a young man who considered himself so handsome that he couldn’t stop gazing at his own reflection in the water of a slow-moving river. The gods, the myth goes, realized that Narcissus wasn’t good for anything else, so they turned him into a flower.

The problem with having narcissists in charge of anything is that they can’t see or acknowledge any value to anything outside themselves and what they want, including laws, traditions and ideas.

So for Obama, it’s only natural that he should be able to alter the law at a whim, especially when it bears his name.

On Monday, the White House announced the president is delaying the Obamacare mandate for medium-size businesses until 2016. Businesses with 100 or more employees will have to comply by 2015 — at least until Obama changes the law again for them.

The DOJ, led by henchman Eric Holder, also acted on “whatever” the president wants in promoting the homosexual agenda, one of Obama’s pet projects.

The DOJ has announced that it will offer legal protection to same-sex couples in all programs it administers. This will give homosexual couples a variety of legal privileges normally extended to spouses, including the right not to testify against each other, prison visitation and survivor benefits.

This will be the federal policy in all 50 states, regardless of the laws on homosexual marriages, and will inevitably affect the cases the DOJ will or will not pursue. As the Obama Administration has decided it doesn’t need to follow anybody’s rules but its own, it’s a sure bet the Administration plans to trample all over states’ rights in pursuing the further destruction of the American family.

You can also expect the feds to continue intruding on the education process by pursuing “anti-discrimination” cases intended to ease the indoctrination of children.

Think of Obama as the anti-Spider-Man, to draw a pop culture parallel. Spider-Man is known for his fundamental moral principle, “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Obama’s credo would best be described as “With great power comes great privilege.” The more power he is given, the more he will take advantage of it, and the more he will want.

Some people even on the Right still bristle at comparisons of Obama to Hitler or Stalin, but it’s clear that he is on the same destructive path taken by every would-be emperor since the dawn of human history. He doesn’t trust his “subjects,” he doesn’t care for their laws or traditions, he has turned potential allies into foes, and finally turned to eliminating his enemies (congressional Republicans) even if it means neutralizing his Democratic supporters as well.

Even though it was spurred by a seemingly innocuous event, it seems likely the phrase “I can do whatever I want” will one day be the final word on this Administration.

    I was watching Fox News when that segment came on screen. He was talking about “breaking protocol,” and said in a loud clear voice that “I’m president and I can do anything I want,” which was an in-your-face arrogant remark to rile up his enemies. I am very surprised that this guy has made it as long as he has without someone pulverizing his face into the ground. Those bodyguards must be on him like glue!

    • Mike Tanco

      This guy has his head so far up his ass he can’t see daylight. Does he really think the American citizens will tolerate a dictator?

      • robocop33

        So far so good Mike. Nobody has had the guts to tell him no yet! We need a Speaker who isn’t a coward or doesn’t have any skeletons in his closet that Obama knows about.

      • patriotusa2

        You know I actually think there are times when he actually believes the majority will do just that. He prides himself so much on his manipulation skills that he thinks he can accomplish anything despite all his blunders and failures. It’s like he’s out there in space somewhere.

        • pateboo

          There’s all this TALK, but no ACTION, of doing things to unseat him, so why SHOULDN’T he believe he can accomplish his agenda. He’s managing to do it SO FAR. We need to unseal his records, amend the Constitution so that no one running for office can seal them, make them provide irrefutable proof of eligibility, provide finger prints, and define once and for all what constitutes a NATURAL BORN citizen.

        • patriotusa2

          If there were any way I could do it, believe me I would. It’s those in power who are dragging their feet and doing nothing but talk. You’re right. This guy has gotten away with everything including the four deaths of those in Benghazi.

        • pineapple

          It’s called Narcissism.

    • catman

      I’m wondering when one of them is going to take as much of his crap as he/she can stand and does something about it. Probably never as they are brainwashed to feel the “King” (read president if you wish) is all powerful and is really looking out for the American people as he is a true blue American. If you believe that last sentence, I have an igloo in Yuma, Arizona I’ll sell you real cheap.

  • ste1021

    Unfortunately, many Republicans in Congress and many voters appear to agree with him.

    • ssims

      ste1021 – I see where you are coming from, but it is us “the people” who have to speak out and let “the Great One” and Congress know that they are not what is important. The greatness of this country is at high risk with then in charge, so we need to speak out, stand up and do something. Don’t really know what but we have to start somewhere to take this country back before there is No Country. Lord help us to do whatever we can, whenever we can to rid our country of OB and both sides of congress are doing to our country and the people.

      • ste1021

        Your attitude and reasoning are what’s needed throughout the population. We must make sure our friends, neighbors, and relatives are registered to vote. We must fight against complacency. If we can take back the Senate in November, we can at least slow down the madness. Thank you for your comment. It is very much appreciated.

  • teedoffatobama

    WHEN we allow a president to get away with breaking any laws then we become ruled by dictatorship instead of led by a leader

    • ssims

      You are so right. “We the people” should stand up and take back the US. Before it is too late.

      • teedoffatobama

        the way to do this is to elect representatives that listen to the needs of their voters and have a proven track record of what is in the best interests of their cities state and country and not of their own agendas like Obama is

  • robocop33

    November cannot get here quick enough so we will have a majority in both houses and maybe some representatives that have the guts to stand Obama tall on the carpet.

    • axmickl

      I hope you are right robo. Somehow I still don’t have a lot of confidence anybody will stand up to the evil scum. Even if we take both houses will there be enough real patriots to dump this garbage? Will they shiver in their boots and worry about a black uprising? Got news for you, that would probably be the best thing that ever happened to this country.

    • pateboo

      It starts with the PRIMARIES. People don’t vote in the Primaries like they should, then they don’t like who made it on the ballot so they don’t vote in the General Election either.

  • donl

    When did We The People start taking orders from the government? I now believe obama hasn’t a clue as to the seriousness of what a presidents job is! There is a BIG, BIG difference between the responsibilities of a community organizer and being a president. He just doesn’t get it !!

    • pateboo

      OH, he GETS it alright. This has been his plan all along, what he was groomed for since childhood. He has been out to destroy this country from the get go. He’s never had any intention of bringing down unemployment, or not running for re-election if he didn’t fix things in 3 years, or having a transparent presidency etc. He said what people wanted to hear just to get in office so he could DESTROY us. And the right people were gullible enough to believe him, and VOTE for him. He isn’t STUPID, or inept, he knows EXACTLY what he’s doing, that’s why he’s conveniently not around when the really big stuff goes down, that’s his ALIBI. That’s why he can say he found out when the rest of us did. He’s like Bill Clinton, people kept saying Bill is so charismatic. Bill could charm the venom out of a rattlesnake. Bill is just so charming that you didn’t notice him plunging a knife in your back with one hand, as he was shaking your hand with his other. Obama and the Clinton’s are one and the same. They all are so personable that you overlook their crimes, and they all have a trail of deaths and destruction behind them.

        Just Sharing Some Historical Facts.

        To: Obama:

        It
        was you who told an Islamic dinner – “I am one of you.”

        It
        was you who on ABC News referenced – “My Muslim faith.”

        It
        was you who ordered both Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges

        It
        was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

        It

        favor of infanticide.

        It
        was you who curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

        was you who refused to condemn the Ft.
        Hood killer as an Islamic
        terrorist.

        throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of
        hypothetical human-rights abuses.

        It
        was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of
        radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that
        is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.

        It
        was you who funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

        It
        was you who ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new
        commemorative stamp.

        Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim

        over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating
        in seasonal WH religious events.

        It
        was you who was un-characteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim
        Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally
        in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led
        slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

        It
        was you who appointed s your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett , who is a member
        of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

        Do we really need to go on?

        Barack, you may be a lot of things; but, for certainty, you are no Christian.

        Obama,
        who refers to himself as: “A man of Africa”,
        is precisely the type of ‘divided loyalties” individual that our Founders attempted to prohibit from ascendancy to the presidency when they constructed our Constitution.

  • axmickl

    If Mein Furor can do anything he wants, then so can we the people. I no longer see the point in obeying any rules anywhere since the top person in the land thinks that is the way to live. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander.

  • WhiteFalcon

    All this lawlessness happens because of a spineless Congress. They are supposed to be part of the checks and balances but because of the large number of commieonazicrats we have in the Congress, they do nothing. Harry Reid should be impeached and thrown out of office, and so should a big bunch of others, for violating their pledge and for their great malfeasence in office.

  • Faith

    Apparently he is correct. November cannot come fast enough. I hope our country can last that long.

  • afanaglenn

    This man is the most dangerous president ever. HAS TO BE STOPPED. He thinks of himself as a dictator as is progressing towards a dictatorship. HE HAS TO BE STOPPED.

  • ramesaz

    All these statements of why he thinks he can do whatever he wants are bogus! The fact is he can. And we gave him that right. In view of his dismal record in the first four years we, the people, gave him a pat on the back and said we want another four years of that. Remember we are his boss and he knows it, and when the boss says “that a boy” it gives him the go ahead to continue what he wants. Of course, the fact that the majority (almost) share holders are on his welfare roles probably doesn’t influence this a bit??? The same goes with Boehner et al. As long as their constituents continue to put them in office they think they are doing good. Never mind the few malcontents who raise their voices in protest. They are just Fox news lackeys. No, they aren’t the problem – – – we are. When the American people look to the government to take care of them, then we can expect this kind of performance. When and until the people wake up and recognize what the liberals are doing to us this country will continue to go down the drain. If so, God help us!

  • mathis1689

    The final word on his administration is found in Daniel 5:26-27 my paraphrase “God has numbered and finished the days of your kingdom and you have been weighed and found out as a lightweight.”

  • battle

    He’s demonstrated over and over again that he can do whatever he wants.
