President Obama ‘Swore An Oath To Uphold The Laws’ -- But Will He!

President Obama: ‘The Problem Is That I’m The President Of The United States, I’m Not The Emperor Of The United States.
My Job Is To Execute Laws That Are Passed’

“Congress has passed a $607 billion defense bill that bans moving Guantanamo Bay detainees to the United States — something Barack Obama has been trying to do since he was sworn in as president in 2009. The Senate’s vote of 91 to 3 gave final legislative approval to the measure. The House has already passed it with a veto-proof majority, 370-58.” (“Congress Passes $607 Billion Defense Bill That Would Ban Moving Guantanamo Detainees To US,” AP, 11/10/15)

JOSH EARNEST, White House Press Secretary: ‘At this point, I would not take anything off the table’ “White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, asked about the possibility that President Barack Obama could take unilateral moves to transfer detainees to the United States, said all options remain in play. ‘At this point, I would not take anything off the table in terms of the President doing everything that he can to achieve this critically important national security objective,’ Earnest said.” (“WH: Executive Action Possible On Closing Gitmo,” CNN, 11/4/15)

CANDIDATE OBAMA: ‘We're Not Doing An End-Run Around Congress’

OBAMA CAMPAIGN PROMISE: ‘We're not doing an end-run around Congress’ “Everybody’s got their own role. Congress’s job is to pass legislation. The president can veto it or he can sign it. … I believe in the Constitution and I will obey the Constitution of the United States. We're not going to use signing statements as a way of doing an end-run around Congress.” (Sen. Barack Obama, Campaign Event At Billings West High School, Billings, MT, 5/19/08)

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ‘There Are Laws On The Books That I Have To Enforce’

PRESIDENT OBAMA: “America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the President, am obligated to enforce the law. I don't have a choice about that. That's part of my job. … The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws. There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear … that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President.” (President Obama, Univision Townhall, 3/28/11)
  • OBAMA: “I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books … Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. But that's not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That's not how our Constitution is written.” (President Obama, Remarks To The National Council Of La Raza, 7/25/11)
  • OBAMA: ‘I can't just make the laws up by myself.’ “If Congress has laws on the books… there's a limit to the discretion that I can show because I am obliged to execute the law. That's what the Executive Branch means. I can't just make the laws up by myself.” (President Obama, Univision Interview, 10/25/10)
  • OBAMA: “I know some here wish that I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself. But that’s not how democracy works. See, democracy is hard. But it’s right. Changing our laws means doing the hard work of changing minds and changing votes, one by one.” (President Obama, Commencement Address At Miami Dade College, 4/29/11)
  • OBAMA: “I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. …the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce.” (President Obama, Remarks In An ‘Open For Questions’ Roundtable, 9/28/11)
  • OBAMA: “There is a notion that somehow if I had worked it hard enough, we could have magically done it. That's just not the way our system works.” (President Obama, Univision Interview, 10/25/10)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: ‘I’m Not The Emperor Of The United States’

PRESIDENT OBAMA: “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.” (President Obama, Google Hangout, 2/14/13)
