Not a new story (Jan. 2015) , but an important story.
Conservative hero Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who would be a top pick if he ran for President, came out swinging after President Obama’s disgraceful State of the Union address.
It was only a year ago since the President promised he would use his pen and phone to ignore the legislative branch and push through his agenda by extending executive orders far beyond what any other president has done. Since then, we have seen how dangerous a pen is in the hands of Obama, as he has wasted no time eroding the constitutional framework created by the Founding Fathers while acting like a tyrant.
Here is the statement Gowdy released. WHOA:
“Last year, the President promised he would use his pen and phone to ignore the legislative branch and push through his agenda by executive fiat. We have witnessed one executive power grab after another, setting a dangerous precedent and eroding the constitutional balance set forward by our Founders.
“As the President himself once said, elections have consequences. The most recent one being he must work with the Republican-controlled Congress, rather than spout recycled, failed ideas from past speeches. Americans are looking for leadership. They want solutions. The President has the opportunity to put aside politics and engage with the new Congress. We hope he will.”
This is why conservatives on Twitter love Gowdy. As a former prosecutor with a perfect conviction record, Gowdy has a unique talent to convey conservative principles in meaningful ways.
