In the past, people have objected to me calling Obama a dictator. I hereby apologize – really. I looked it up and dictator doesn’t accurately describe Obama, tyrant does:
1a : an absolute ruler unrestrained by law or constitution
b : a usurper of sovereignty
2a : a ruler who exercises absolute power oppressively or brutally
b : one resembling an oppressive ruler in the harsh use of authority or power
So, why do I say that? Because of this story:
The Obama administration now says a special system of exchanges designed to make it easier for small businesses to provide insurance will be delayed an entire year — to 2015.
Obamacare is a law. As near as I have been able to tell, it would require Congress to change the legislation in order to put this off until 2015. The legislation reads “shall,” and that means the law cannot be altered by Presidential decree. Now, I’ve looked, but there seems to be ZERO evidence that Congress has even debate changing this deadline, so, if the deadline has been changed by Obama – without Congress passing a law to authorize the change – then Obama meets the description of both definition 1a & b. That makes him a tyrant.
Incidentally, Obama has “gone around” Congress on many occasions — more than enough to have established that he sees no restriant on his authority outside of that which HE chooses to recognize. The exact definition of a tyrant.
