In 2014, President Obama has made much of his pen-and-a-phone strategy to accomplish his goals in the face of what he calls an “unprecedented pattern of obstruction” from Republicans in Congress. Apparently the president’s supporters are on board with the idea of unilateral executive action. At a meeting last Friday, a supporter of the president asked about the possibility of “a state of emergency.” The president relayed the story to another groups of supporters at a Democratic National Committee event later in the day at a private residence in Purchase, New York:
“I was in a meeting earlier today and somebody asked, you know, Mr. President, what can you do, these folks, they just — all they do is just oppose whatever you propose even if they used to be for it, now they’re against it; if you said the sky was blue, they’d say it was green; they deny the facts, they don’t have any ideas for growing the economy or helping the middle class — maybe you just need to announce a state of emergency. I said, well, now, I’m not going to do that, that’s not how the Constitution works.”
