Last week the media focused on President Obamaâ€™s basic eligibility to be president while ignoring the unconstitutional manner in which he governs. For example, his recent use of a signing statement to affect a line-item veto on a bill he signed into law as president. The recent continuing resolution to fund the government through September had an amendment that defunded four of his czar positions as a cost-cutting measure. These â€œczarsâ€ are administration appointees who exercise influence on policy matters, yet because they are classified as â€œadvisorsâ€ and not cabinet officials, the President is able to avoid the Senate confirmation process.
