John Podesta, who recently resigned his position with the Marxist/Progressive think tank, the Center for American Progress to take a special position in the regime said this when exclaiming Obama will continue making law and violating the constitution, "If he (meaning Obama) believes, and the Justice department (meaning Holder) believes, he (meaning Obama) has the authority to make progress, to strengthen the middle class, give people opportunity in this country, he (meaning Obama) will take it."
The constitution does not say provide for anything of the sort. The duties and role of the executive is clearly detailed in the constitution. What Obama has done and is threatening to continue to do is clear reason for his removal from office. We have learned from the Marxist/Progressives they have no concern about the rule of law or the constitution. Their only concern is implementing a Marxist society.
Here, according to the constitution, are the duties of the executive:
