Valerie Jarrett: Americans ‘hungry’ for Obama to act like an imperial president.
Valerie Jarrett says Americans “hungry” for Obama to rule like a dictator.
On Tuesday, White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Americans are “hungry” for Obama to take unilateral action, bypassing Congress wherever he can to get things done, CNS News reported.
According to Jarrett, Obama will “set forth very specific, concrete proposals that he thinks will move our country forward — create opportunity for hard-working Americans who want to succeed.”
Although Obama will prod Congress to act on his agenda, Jarrett said Obama “will make clear that he will take action on his own,” bypassing Congress when he sees fit.
“We’re going to do what we can, within the president’s own executive power, and working throughout the country with those who want to move our country forward,” she added. “And it is a lot of potential there. And I think the optimism that the president has comes from the grit and determination of the American people, our businesses, many of who (sic) are bringing jobs back to America, so we have some momentum going, and we just need to call on everybody to work together, and that’s what the president will do this evening.”
Jarrett, who is seen by many as the real power behind Obama, said the president “has never paid a lot of attention to the poll numbers” when asked about a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll showing Americans are losing confidence in him.
No, I wouldn’t think a dictator would follow the poll numbers if he is a dictator – duh!
