Law Are Important Until They Get in The Way of What You Want to Do

That seems to be Obama's current philosophy:
Obama still above the law, says Obama -- Hey, remember the Constitution? Well, get over it. TheDC's Nicholas Ballasy reports: "White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said President Barack Obama will 'continue' to act 'independently' without congressional authorization to 'benefit the American people' as part of the White House's 'We Can’t Wait' campaign. 'He [Obama] fully understands that the kinds of things that are contained within the American Jobs Act require congressional action, require laws being passed, and that's why he's pressing for Congress to take action legislatively,' Carney told reporters on Monday at the White House. 'But he can also act independently or, rather, administratively, and exercise his executive authority to benefit the American people in other ways. And he will continue to do that.'" Rules are rules... until they keep you from getting what you want.
Every one of these executive orders can be immediately canceled by the next president, so for those who are counting on Obama's edicts to last a long time, better start making plans otherwise.
