Faster than a last-minute Obamacare reg! More powerful than the Tenth Amendment! Able to leap the enumerated powers clause in a single bound! ("Look! Up in the sky!" "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!" "It's Super-President!")...Yes, it's Super-President...strange visitor from corrupt Chicago, who came to Washington with powers and hubris far beyond those of the Founding Fathers! Super-President...who can change the course of the Constitution, bend the Bill of Rights with his bare hands, and who, disguised as Barack Obama, mild-mannered uniter who stops the rise of the oceans and heals the planet, fights a never-ending battle for redistribution, statism, and the French way!

Obama finally freed himself from the right's ball and chain and I'll take the do-something vs. the do-nothing any day no matter how big or small some talking head values it. Republicans think they are a shoo-in for 2014 if they keep their traps shut and do what comes naturally for them which is zip, nada, zero. Unfortunately for them, Americans have memories like elephants.

Go ahead and sign executive orders, your power is extremely limited, try it on anything big and the supreme court will be involved. So free the tree frogs, raise minimum wage for 2000 people or make bus stops cozier if you must.
