On Wednesday’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer warned that if President Barack Obama continued to disobey laws as passed by Congress and it becomes habitual, it would have an impact on future administrations and their willingness to enforce existing law.
“Obama may not be interested in working with Congress, but the Constitution requires him … it’s not just he’s negligent in executing his job,” Krauthammer said. “He’s being unconstitutional and if it becomes a habit, which it’s becoming and that’s the problem, it’s going to establish a principle that a Republican will come into office and he’ll say, ‘You know, I campaigned against capital gains taxes, so I’m going to order the FBI not to collect it.’ That’s not how you do it. If that were to happen, you could be sure that the liberals would be screaming … This is eroding the rule of law in a systematic way time after time.”
