Words have meaning

If you are the head of any branch of the government of the United States of America, you shouldn’t declare that you’re going to go ahead and ignore the other branches. It’s kinda stupid. At least say you’re going to work with the others.

“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama boasted Tuesday as he convened his first cabinet meeting of the year.

I grant you, Congress has been mostly useless since about 1998, but that doesn’t mean you get to throw out the basis of our government in the name of “moving forward”, wherever forward is.
