Since our “constitutional scholar” of a president can’t seem to understand the basic workings of governance, SteveDeace.com has often suggested Barack Obama watch the iconic School House Rock cartoon, “I’m Just a Bill.”
His latest usurpation of the legal system is so blatant, even Saturday Night Live took note. And they wrote a new version of the song to capture Obama’s extra-legal approach…in which Obama pushes “Bill” down the capitol steps.
After shoving “Bill” down the steps, which he does on three separate occasions, Obama explains “there’s actually an even easier way to get things done around here,” before introducing “Executive Order.”
“But don’t you have to go through Congress?” the little boy character asks.
“Oh, that’s adorable. You still think that’s how government works,” Executive Order says.

She delights in debating religion, politics, and all other subjects impolite at the dinner table. Her favorite time of year is Caucus season, and she’s an accomplished slam poet, ready to spit the truth…in mad rhymes, if necessary.
