Krauthammer: Obama’s Executive Order Threat ‘Sort of Pathetic’
On tonight’s On The Record, Charles Krauthammer weighed in on President Barack Obama’s threat to sign executive orders if Congress doesn’t work with him.
“This is how they do it in Venezuela, Cuba, and other places … What makes it sort of pathetic is it sounds like a tough threat and it is unconstitutional, it’s not how you ought to be the president of the United States, but in the end, there’s very little he can do,” Krauthammer said, noting that Obama’s executive order powers are very limited.
Krauthammer said Obama has been unable to work with the other side of the aisle. “He was unable to do to Washington what he thought he would do, and he couldn’t even do what other presidents have done, which he wanted to transcend,” he said.
