"In Lawless, George Mason University law professor David E. Bernstein provides a lively but scholarly account of how the Obama Administration has undermined the Constitution and the rule of law. Lawless documents how President Barack Obama has presided over one constitutional debacle after another--from Obamacare to unauthorized wars in the Middle East to attempts to strip property owners, college students, religious groups, and conservative political activists of their rights, and much, much more. Violating his own promises to respect the Constitution's separation of powers, Obama brazenly ignores Congress when it won't rubberstamp his initiatives. "We can't wait," he intones when amending Obamacare on the fly or signing a memo legalizing millions illegal immigrants, as if Congress doing its job as a coequal branch of government somehow permits the president to rule like a dictator, free from the Constitution's checks and balances. President Obama has also presided over bold and rampant lawlessness by his underlings. Harry Truman famously said "the buck stops here." When confronted with allegations that his administration's actions are illegal, Obama responds, "so sue me. " Lawless shows how President Obama has betrayed not just the Constitution but his own stated principles. In the process, he has done serious and potentially permanent damage to our constitutional system. As America swings into election season, it will have to grapple with the need to find a president who can repair Obama's lawless legacy. "-- Provided by publisher.
