@SenRandPaul – Living In The Past
From CBN News [tip of the fedora to The Right Scoop][emphasis mine]:
The Obama administration has suggested using an executive order to bypass Congress if it can’t get the gun control measures it wants.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told CBN News that members of Congress are prepared to fight such an order.
"I’m against having a king," Paul said. "I think having a monarch is what we fought the American Revolution over and someone who wants to bypass the Constitution, bypass Congress — that’s someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch."
"I’ve been opposed to executive orders, even with Republican presidents. But one that wants to infringe on the Second Amendment, we will fight tooth and nail," he continued.
"And I promise you, there’ll be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop him from usurping the Constitution, running roughshod over Congress," he vowed. "And you will see one heck of a debate if he decides to try to do this."
‘One heck of a debate’?!?
As Squid wrote in the Comments section over at Jeff Goldstein’s place:
Ooooh! Debate! That’s right up there with Strongly Worded Denunciations! I bet Obama folds like a debutante’s fan when faced with “one heck of a debate.”
Debate this — I got your debate right here [Bob makes obscene gesture].
The time for debating is over, Senator. Open your eyes.
All True Americans want actions taken by the Congress to protect our God-given rights and to protect the Separation Of Powers.
You all keep promising, but you never deliver.
You seem to understand that Barack Hussein Obama is acting like a dictator ['king' is the wrong term because George III did have to answer to Parliament; Obama answers to no one].
Do your damn jobs and protect The Constitution [or we, The Sovereign People, will].
We are your bosses.
That is an order.
