MSNBC pundit Michael Eric Dyson has called on Barack Obama to dispense with an “obstructionist Congress” and instead pursue his agenda via an aggressive raft of executive orders.
“Well the president has got to do this… Look he’s got three years left! Don’t be a lame duck! Stand up, show the kind of spine that you display when you’re sick and tired of being you know, uh treated and mistreated and the American people being mistreated. This president has the bully pulpit, he has the will of the American people, so many of us who stand behind him. And I think that he’s gotta trudge forward,” said Dyson.
“Now it’s true that this do nothing, obstructionist Congress on the one hand, can tie his hand, but there’s enough executive orders he can achieve on one hand. And also getting out there and rallying the troops so to speak. Using the brilliant oratorical skills he has to be able to enliven, edify and encourage American citizens to go to the polls, because he’s not on the ballot.”
If in Dyson’s mind having “the will of the people” translates to opinion polls that show popular approval for Obamacare at a record low, along with recent record lows in approval for Obama’s foreign policy, then he has a screw loose. According to a poll last month, Obama’s general approval rating also hit the lowest figure for his entire time in office. Obama is backed by “the will” of less people than ever before.
