Exclusive: Barbara Simpson declares, ‘The chutzpah of Barack Obama has no limits’

May 31, 2015

The chutzpah of Barack Obama has no limits, and the man has no shame.

Clearly, he wants what he wants when he wants it, and the law and Constitution and tradition be damned.

The small article in my local paper, the Contra Costa Times, was headlined, “With new EPA water rule, Obama again takes executive action on environment.”

The fact that it was a small article on the inside of the paper is illustrative that the liberal media find nothing wrong with the president using the power of an executive order to bypass Congress and get what he wants. As I said, he wants what he wants when he wants it.

Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the article was taken from the Los Angeles Times – another bastion of liberal reportage in California.

The article presented the case from 1989, in which a Michigan developer was accused of violating the federal Clean Water Act, by filling wetlands on his own property. He faced prison time.

John Rapanos fought the charges, and his fighting the case wound up in the Supreme Court, and he won. The finding was that because his wetlands were some 20 miles from a river that drained into Lake Huron, it was a situation that didn’t meet the federal definition of discharges into “navigable waters.”

Property rights supporters cheered the victory, but the finding only fueled the determination of the EPA and the government to further clarify just exactly what is meant by a “connection” between “wetlands” and “navigable waters.”
