President Obama “quipped” today during a visit to Monticello with the French president, “That’s the good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want.”
Via the pool report:
Monticello At 4:45 POTUS and president Hollande walked out from a portico and strolled in Front of your pool with Leslie Bowman, president of the Monticello Foundation. Looking at a terrace she said that Jefferson loved to admire the landscape from there. POTUS said that he’d like to take a look and seemed delighted to “break the protocol”. ”That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want” he quipped, walking to the terrace with his guest and Ms. Bowman. Pool now in the mansion as the leaders will come and visit Jefferson’s study.
The comment came around the time the White House announced it would be delaying the Obamacare mandate for some businesses unilaterally.
The French president is here in the U.S. on a state visit.
More notes from the pool:
Monticello POTUS and pres Hollande paid a short visit to the study as your pool was looking through an alcove over president Jefferson’s bed. They admired contraptions invented by Jefferson to read and write more efficiently such as a lectern and a “polygraph”. Hollande noticed that one of the books was written in French. [Weekly Standard]
This is so much fun. Think of it—it seems like yesterday I was a bum on the beach hustling rich guys around the men’s room door. Now I can hustle low-information voters, make or invalidate laws with the stroke of a pen, and use the full force of the United States government to target anyone I don’t like.
And nobody will do anything to stop me… because racist.
As Smitty over at The Other McCain responded:
I think it was Leon Trotsky who said — and I paraphrase — Terror is an effective instrument of policy…
To know that this guy has the power of martial law is truly terrifying.
