Thank goodness for our system of checks and balances.
Obama is recently quoted as saying, "If I had the power to raise the federal minimum wage on my own, or enact fair pay and paid leave for every worker on my own, or make college more affordable on my own, I would have done so already. If I could do all that, I would have gotten everything done in like my first two years."
Obama may personally think his ideas are great, but it's dangerous to think that one person could create laws unilaterally.
But that hasn't stopped Obama from pushing the limits of his executive authority on a number of issues ranging from immigration laws to welfare work requirements.
America does not have a King, and we should be grateful for the checks in place that ensure one branch of our government cannot become too powerful.

Sean Hannity is a multimedia superstar, spending four hours a day, every day, reaching out to millions of Americans on radio, television and the internet.
Nationally syndicated by Premiere Networks, The Sean Hannity Show has more than 500 affiliates nationwide. Heard by more than 11 million loyal listeners each week, Hannity is the second most-listened-to talk show host in America, according to Talkers magazine. Hannity has been the recipient of two Marconi Awards for "Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year," and is a three-time consecutive winner of the Radio & Records "National Talk Show Host of The Year" award.
Hannity is an accomplished author with three #1 best-selling books. His first book, "Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism," rode the New York Times Best-Sellers list for a remarkable 17 weeks. Hannity's second book, "Deliver Us From Evil: Defeating Terrorism, Despotism, and Liberalism," debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best-Sellers list and held strong for five consecutive weeks. Hannity's latest book "Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama's Radical Agenda" was released in 2010 and quickly became #1 on the New York Times Best-Sellers list as well.
Hannity has the unique ability to reach out and connect with his audience, proven during his highly successful "Hannitization of America Tour," which brought hundreds of thousands of like-minded Americans together. He has visited markets big and small from coast to coast since the tour began in 2001.
In 2003, Hannity launched the "Freedom Concerts" to raise awareness and funds for The Freedom Alliance, a charity which provides scholarships to children of slain U.S. military personnel. The 2009 Freedom Concert series was a huge success attended by over 80,000 people in eight major U.S. cities: Atlanta, San Diego, Dallas, Houston, Cincinnati, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Jackson, New Jersey.
A gutsy talk-show host who always lands on the "right side" of the issues, Hannity is the host of FOX News Channel's Hannity, which airs weeknights from 10 to 11 p.m. ET. Hannity, who joined the network in 1996, offers a mix of news, commentary, guest interviews and more on the program each night. Prior to the launch of Hannity, he was co-host of the #1 prime-time cable news debate show, Hannity & Colmes, for over 10 years, in addition to hosting #1 weekend program Hannity's America, both airing on the network.
