Obama breaking his word and our laws

Three years ago, Mr. Obama became president of this great country. On that day he swore an oath on the Bible to uphold the laws of this country.

A year ago during an interview he stated that as president he did not have the authority to implement the so called Dream Act, which basically grants amnesty to 800,000 (some claim the figure is closer to 2 million) illegal immigrants. These people, regardless of how or why they got into the United States, are illegal aliens and under current law must be deported.

On June 15, he and his administration broke the law. They issued a regulation implementing the provisions of the Dream Act.

The president does not have the right to change the laws of this country! That can only be done by Congress.

As a senator in 2007 he stated that the president should not use the policy of executive privilege to shield information from Congress, however on June 20 of this year he used it to protect the Justice Department and his attorney general from releasing information about Fast and Furious. He did this now because he knows his administration is wrong concerning this program and he needs to hide their misdeeds. What happened to the transparency that he promised?

He has stated that his administration will not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act signed into law by Clinton because he believes it is unconstitutional.

He acts like he is an emperor.

President Obama has broken the law and his oath of office and should be punished accordingly. He did this just to garner votes during an election year. This man should be impeached and removed from office. If you break the law you are punished, as he should be. He is usurping the power of Congress and the Supreme Court. This man does not deserve to be the leader of this great country.
