“My Pen And Phone Replaces Ten Years Of Teaching Constitutional Law.”

Obama in 2008:

“I taught constitutional law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.” (Townhall in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, March 31, 2008).

“I am going to be working with Congress where I can to accomplish this, but I am also going to act on my own if Congress is deadlocked. “I’ve got a pen to take executive actions where Congress won’t, and I’ve got a telephone to rally folks around the country on this mission.” (White House, January 14, 2014.)
