Constitutional law professor on separation of powers: “Stop hatin’ all the time”

posted at 3:21 pm on July 30, 2014 by Allahpundit

It is indeed “hatin’,” not “hating,” as both CNN and ABC note, and that’s deliberate. His strategy in answering the GOP’s lawsuit in the court of public opinion is cynical and brilliant: He’s going to laugh the whole thing off as highfalutin nonsense, something the average joe shouldn’t spend two seconds thinking about. Obama the Harvard Law grad knows how significant the underlying separation-of-powers issues are and how weak his case is on the merits. So Obama the politician is going to reassure low-information voters who lack basic civics that the whole thing is basically a goof. That’s where the use of vernacular comes in — he’s as befuddled by this constitutional folderol as you are, America. It’s just “hatin’.” Needless to say, had George Bush responded to liberal worries about presidential signing statements by jovially accusing them of “hatin’,” the media would have dumped in its pants. MSNBC hosts would be demanding his resignation for treating matters of grave constitutional concern so dismissively and lefty bloggers would be wondering if Bush wasn’t showing symptoms of being a “dry drunk” in laughing off something this serious. As it is, hackery will prevail.

I’ve gotta say, pessimist though I am, I thought the public would be a harder sell on transitioning to a system of government by executive decree than telling them that the opposition’s just “hatin’” and don’t you worry your pretty heads about the details. Evidently it’s time to lower the bar of expectations once again. Here’s today’s clip followed by a blast from the past (2008) back when Obama thought checks and balances meant more than Congress “being mad.”

Ask the Hessians, who we attacked in their sleep on Christmas morning or the Japanese who we nuked. Twice.

VengeanceIsMine on July 30, 2014 at 3:27 PM

I do hate him. And I didn’t when he came into office in 2009. I hated the way he was coddled and protected by the media, but it’s not like he put a gun to their heads and forced them to sell their souls like that. They did that all on their own.

His behavior since becoming President however is disgraceful. He’s been petty, arrogant, intolerant, condescending, incompetent, lazy, dishonest, corrupt, and disrespectful toward his office, his responsibility to his country and the entire world, and anyone who dares to disagree with him.

It’s not hyperbole to suggest that what he’s done in 5 1/2 years(and will do in the next 2 1/2) will cause irreparable damage to this nation. What he’s been allowed to get away with in office has set a chilling precedent that will permit any future President(well, at least anyone with a D after their name) to pretty much do whatever they damn well please.

tho i hate to sound mad about kids on my lawn when i’m not even 30 yet, it strikes me that the level of wilful disingenuousness in political discourse today is unmatched by that of any other period in history.

it has become commonplace to tell outrageous, but politically expedient, lies, and i fear that the voting public has become too dissociated from political responsibility to even be able to distinguish base-baiting disingenuousness from intellectually honest politicking.

voting really should require a civic quiz. one should at least understand the ramifications of one’s vote. as it stands, politics has become a pop-culture popularity contest…for which we are all paying dearly.

Granted, his administration has been hostile toward anyone in the press who criticizes him(hell, he’s even spied on them), but again, they still have no one to blame but themselves. If they’d been critical of him since Day One, it wouldn’t have come to this. And BTW, they could still solve this problem overnight if they’d collectively decide to stop lobbing softballs, regurgitating White House talking points, and burying any story that reflects negatively on the regime.

Obama had to be dragged off the golf course (rumor is that Jarret did it) and they put a POTUS jacket over his golf shirt. He is clearly the smallest and least significant figure in the room. It tells the true story better than any other account of what happened that night, that far from being “the man who got Bin Laden”, the “mastermind” etc, that if anything Obama was the BIGGEST HINDRANCE.

Joffrey was cruel, arrogant, sadistic, and a tyrannical ruler. However, he was also incompetent, unintelligent, naive, petulant, cowardly, and prone to rash outbursts of violence. Much like earlier Targaryen kings, it was suspected that Joffrey’s psychopathy was a result of his incestuous bloodline. Nonetheless, Joffrey was consumed by megalomaniacal delusions of grandeur. Even though he was absurdly unskilled at ruling, making far more problems than he solved, he was convinced that he deserved praise and utter devotion from everyone around him. Despite the fact that at the start of the War of the Five Kings most of the realm rose in rebellion against him, to the point that his faction essentially controlled only the Westerlands, the Crownlands, and a narrow strip of the southern Riverlands between them, Joffrey was convinced that he was the greatest king in the history of the Seven Kingdoms. Added to what was an unstable personality to begin with, Cersei utterly spoiled and indulged Joffrey his entire life, resulting in him possessing a massive sense of entitlement which knows no emotional bounds. Moreover, his father-figure King Robert was largely absent from his life and a terrible role-model, with his constant drinking and whoring (though Robert, at least, lamented on his deathbed that he hadn’t been a good father).

The bamster is trying to project that hate onto us. If we show visible hate to this clown their delusion of us becomes reality. The Biden vs Ryan debate was my turning point in this philosophy. Watching Biden sneer at Ryan with contempt made me ill. If you hate them, I believe eventually that hate will catch up with you.

It won’t be Obama who can’t afford to pay the stead increases in the property taxes on his house, to pay for all the new schools and ESL and remedial teachers his district had to hire to accommodate all the new illegal alien students flooding their public schools; it will be the average joe.

It won’t be Obama waiting for hours (or more) to be seen in his local ER, while dozens of illegal aliens get their “free” medical treatment ahead of him; it will be the average joe.

Obama can afford to laugh about the Third World illegal alien invasion of our nation that he has coordinated and paid for with our money; the average joe can’t.

If one could feel hate directed at him, Obama would be flattened against the wall in agony. Too bad I can’t rub my temples and concentrate at him and get him to at least wince.

I can’t stand to look at the grinning, lying, monkey-a$$ POS, but hate? Maybe.

I love the background full of LIV props. Where does he manage to find so many willing tools?

Hey, King Obama, why don’t you stop lyin’, taxin’, an’ robbin’ our future.

the issue is not that we have a lying, elitist, american hating fool in the whitehouse, but that the american public has allowed to have a lying, elitist, american hating fool in the whitehous.

that’s exactly the point i was making: the real tragedy is that so much of the voting public responds positively to — cheers for! — what should rightfully be seen as unscrupulously misleading political shenanigans.

i watched a bit of the video and what i can’t stand is his stupid plastic smile. he’s so incredibly dishonest that he has this “used car salesman” / “snake oil salesman” / “hey it’s cool, you can totally trust me!!

“user-car salesman” is exactly what came to mind when i saw the picture of obama, sebelius, and pelosi used by reason to pic-caption an article (linked here) about the legislative language in obamacare.

how can anyone trust that joker’s smile? the man is a hyperpolitical charlatan.

Hiz Majesty is going to the well way too often with his po’ black routine and I don’t think it sells any mo’.

I guess THESE TWO GUYS know a little more about him now.

Taped just a few days before the 2008 election. Hellava job, there, “respected journalists”.

But Mr. President if the people who love to hate would stop hating on EVERYTHING you do, then what else would be left for them to do?

The indispensible David Burge, a.k.a. Iowahawk, has labelled him President YOLO McHashtag. Works for me.

The funny things is that if Obama was a conservative that was doing things to help the country instead of things that hurt the country, then leftists like you would be ruthless in their hatred of him.

corkie on July 30, 2014 at 4:05 PM

This is where we disagree, I do not think or believe that he is incompetent even in the slightest. I believe he has done an amazing job of doing exactly what he planned on doing. Which is to destroy the United States of America.

oscarwilde on July 30, 2014 at 3:54 PM

He has been allowed to get away with every whim that deigned to enter his mind all of his life, and his actions have always resulted in rapturous applause. He is, quite literally, a spoiled man.

There is no difference in the process of his threat to invoke an amnesty of epic proportion in an extra-Constitutional move and the 9 year old spoiled brat who threatens to hold her breath until she gets a pony. All of his life, Obama has received the pony.

It is not strategic thinking, or devilish master-minding of devious plots. It is pure juvenile thinking. And its worked for him. Why does anyone think he even considers the opinion of anyone else?

“But…but…Barry….we just can’t afford another pony now….”

“I don’t care. I’m awesome”

BobMbx on July 30, 2014 at 4:05 PM

my previous comment… i was holding back… lol. my comment isn’t enough to describe how i feel. i hate obama and i have so many reasons to hate him. he is repugnant. a worthless excuse for a human being, and that is an understatement. he is lucky that he happened to become president twice because it was definitely an accident and our country will look back on that in shame.

oscarwilde on July 30, 2014 at 3:54 PM

you’re right. he is not incompetent at all. he is very smart actually. he has managed to fool so many people in this country into thinking he’s a nice, honest man who legitimately cares about this country and its citizens. he just does whatever the f he wants and gets away with it because not enough people are willing to call him out on his bullcrap and actually punish him for his wrongs.

he thinks he’s a king, and i guess it really is true!!
