Fight looms between ‘fired up’ Obama and Trump over regulatory rollback

by FOXNews.com  |  published on November 15, 2016

ObamaA “fired up” President Obama vowed Monday that Donald Trump will find it’s not so “easy” to roll back his myriad regulatory policies, previewing a long fight ahead between his allies and majority Republicans taking control next year.

President-elect Trump has vowed to repeal and replace ObamaCare, while canceling “every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama.”

Trump also pledges to sharply increase oil and gas drilling on federal lands while opening up offshore drilling in the Atlantic Ocean and other areas where it is blocked. Further, he wants to repeal the Clean Power Plan, Obama’s signature effort to limit carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants. The plan — the linchpin of Obama’s strategy to fight global warming — is currently on hold awaiting a court ruling.

It is all but assured that Trump, together with the Republican-controlled Congress, will try anew next year to repeal or significantly change ObamaCare, formally known as the Affordable Care Act.

    We don’t want a vindictive type like 0bama “fired up”
    about anything. He can cause a lot of damage in the
    next 8 weeks. He was reckless Before he became a
    lame duck.

    Obama needs to be humbled. His arrogance and disrespect for the American people will cost him nearly all his legacy. He will be a footnote in the history books as the first black President, but little else will remain from his outrageous thumbing his nose at the American people and the laws and traditions of this land. Even Obama cannot escape the fact he has broken many laws and overreached his authority as POTUS. His divisiveness over the last eight years has set a horrific path of racism in this country, the like we have not seen in my lifetime. Those who govern poorly like Obama will be remembered for only that. He has even surpassed Jimmy Carter in that respect, though Jimmy Carter did not do it intentionally, while Obama did.

      Please provide proof to law breaking and over-reached authority. The President is the head of state – the face. The Houses make laws and policy – if they are failing it merely makes the President look bad. By your rationale’ I should blame my Mother for my football teams results, she’s not a player or the coach. Duh!

      • William R. Sullens

        Poohead- you obviously have not watched any news in the last couple of years. Much of the immigration scandals have been because of his overreaching executive orders. As stated previously, if you don’t like it in America, go somewhere else. You will find it much less pleasant in many of the other parts of the world than here in the good old U.S.A.. People like you are the ones who need to see and experience the harsh realities of life outside the U.S.. Maybe then you would appreciate what you currently have.

        • mrpoohead

          What immigration scandals? There are none – Executive Orders made finding serious criminals and terrorists a priority. Over the pool cleaner and melon picker that is surely common-sense considering current “issues”. Refugees are seriously vetted, but serious terrorists would also have serious organisation behind them to create better “refugee”.

          I have seen considerably more of the world than you have or ever will and I was an “independent” traveller so mixed with the locals. W Europe et al still thrash the US. That’s why we left – better society, by a long way.

          • William R. Sullens

            Since you no longer live in the U.S. and promise not to return, you are irrelevant and no longer worthy of dialog. Have a nice life.

          • mrpoohead

            Gloating, gloating, gloating! It’s fun – especially when you know you’re right. All the family that has visited said “Don’t come back, you’ve done the best thing”.

            Awwwwwwwww – kissey, kissey!

          • William R. Sullens

            Poorhead, I said you weren’t worthy of any further dialog, but after reading several of your posts, i realized I have met people like you in my travels. The poor rich kid who didn’t fit in and decided to traverse the globe to try to find himself, that is until Mommy and Daddy cut off the funds. I can picture you with a shabby t-shirt, shorts, sandals and a back pack making your way around the various countrysides, living off the fat of the land. Then reality hit and you realized you needed to figure out how to survive, but you did not have the coping skills nor the training to compete in the U.S.. So you moved to another country where the people were more socialistic and would accept your mediocrity without expecting too much from you. Now you can get on the computer and post, using Google as a reference to make yourself sound more intelligent than you really are and hope that nobody will figure you out. Well, I am glad you like your current life style. It seems to suit you and we are better off without your mediocrity as we have enough people like that already on welfare and food stamps. Enjoy your life to the fullest, as it won’t get any easier as you get older.

            Nice try, no cigar. Actually my parents indulging that sort of nonsense is quite amusing – very pragmatic people.

            So, left with a $1000 and the promise of a summer job overseas – at the end of the season travelled and then found two full time jobs, bought a car travelled some more and did the summer job again. Repeated and gradually worked my way around the world, took fourteen years but very sensible with money so returned with twenty times what I left with. Bought a shop for cash, had other savings too and have since bought a few more and residential properties. Could have retired at 50, but think I’d drive the wife crazy and the surf ain’t good everyday.

            Had worked out where the better place was but they wouldn’t let me stay, resident – then they wanted my skills, so we left. Da, dahhhhhhh! Don’t think we’ll qualify for welfare, I appreciate it is there but begrudge its abuse. And, you only qualify after five years and subject to how much you’ve paid in. Duh!

            Geography, history and politics always interested me so much already read and I guess the reason I had to go round the world. Well, that and Jack Kerouac – drug free though, quite like a cold beer and happy to share a bottle of vino with the Missus.

            Will await more of your idiocies – obviously “conspiracy” is the remit of the alt-right retard. So what did you do – some of us lived!

          • mrpoohead

            Nothing huh?

  • stgabrn

    we have to get the Muslims out of the Government. They are no loyal to the USA. They take their oath of office using the Quran, not the Bible. Anyone see anything wrong with this?

    • Karll

      A scary thing I found out is that there are only a few thousand exec branch employees that Trump can replace. The tens of thousands under them are largely protected by their unions.

  • Peter Smith

    Sorry Barack. You shoved these executive orders and presidential memorandum down “We the People’s” throat. We didn’t like it very much you disingenuous -SSHOLE. Let me know how you like it when President Trump shoves them up your -SS. You never know, your “change in stride” might turn Michael on ……….

  • Duane L Petersen

    Remember that any EO that Obamass writs now Trump will dispose of by 1/21/ 17 and there is not enough time for the agencies to get through the process of making new rules.

    • mort_f

      Not to forget. None of those ‘rules’ originate in Congress. And Executive Actions can cancel them from the gitgo.

    • Bowserb

      What is created by EO can be destroyed by EO. What I really want to see him do is act like a CEO. Tell every department head he appoints that his department is to be cut by 10% of the workforce and 15% of the total salary expense. Let’s get profitable!

  • Luke

    The ‘I’m the king” syndrome of the useless trash in the WH doesn’t realize the ramifications of this last election, his job killing American dream killing policies were what we voted against

  • Stephen Howe

    Your “legacy” or should I say your “leprosy” is OVER BO! Live with it! Even if you wrote all your unconstitutional executive actions in ebonics Trump will simply tear them up!

    As Trump will say on January 20th, “YOU’RE FIRED, BARRY!”

  • Rock

    Obama is DONE ! STFU !

  • justinwachin

    There is no need for President-elect Trump to waste his time debating these issues with President Obama. Mr. Trump needs to focus on hiring his team. Once he becomes president he can easily rescind many of these things with a stroke of the pen.

    The problem with governing by executive order is that a future executive can easily rescind the order. Rules and laws achieved by congressional action are generally harder to repeal.

  • Leslie Woodhull

    Not only will TRUMP succeed in repealing EVERYTHING the brown clown put in place BUT HE’LL DO IT WITH A SMILE ON HIS FACE BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE HAS OUR APPROVAL!!!! IT’S ALL GOING OBOZO!!!

  • Walter Flatt

    IT IS EASY TO ROLL BACK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS SIGNED OR ORDERED WHILE IN OFFICE. WHY?

    A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 BANNING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY AND SINCE OBAMA HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM, NOTHING HE HAS DONE IS LEGAL.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET, 1951/53, A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT MOST OF ALL A CHRISTIAN. I VOTED FOR TRUMP.

    PRAY FOR PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP EVERY DAY. HE WILL NEED US TO OVERCOME THE EVEL OF THIS WORLD.

    WE NEED TO MAKE JESUS CHRIST FIRST FOR THIS COUNTRY AND DO NOT BELEIVE EVERYTHING YOUR HEAR FROM THE BIASED MEDIA. KNOW THE FACTS.

    NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTIES, SUCH AS THE MASONIC LODGE, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS AND ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES TO GET OUT IN THE OPEN, FIND OUT ABOUT PEOPLE AND ADVISE THEIR PEOPLE THE TRUE STORY SO THAT THEY CAN VOTE FOR THE BEST.

    THIS IS WHAT 20 MILLION AMISH PEOPLE DID.  30 LEADERS MEET IN OHIO WITH 3 MILLION AND VOTED THAT ALL WOULD VOTE FOR TRUMP. 

    THIS IS WHAT GAVE HIM OH, PA, MICH, FLA, HELPED IN IND AND NEARLY GAVE HIM VA. 

    FOLKS IF YOU DO NOT THINK GOD WAS INVOLVED IN THIS ELECTION, I SUGGEST YOU THINK AGAIN. 

    TRUMP HAS PROMISED THAT HE WILL REPEAL THE JOHNSON DEAL THAT WOULD TAKE AWAY YOUR TAX EXAMPTION IF YOU TALKED POLITICS.

    IF WE HAVE NOT BEEN SET UP AT A TRY OF A MUSLIM TAKE, WHY ARE THERE A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIMS CAMPS IN THE USA, (5 IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC) AND A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO, TAKE OUR GUNS, BRING IN THOUSANDS OF YOU MUSLIMSE. GET READY FOLK. PUT PIG GREASE ON YOUR BULLETS.

    A LOT OF CHRISTIANS VOTED FOR THIS, GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN.

    FEEL FREE TO FORWARD TO ANYONE YOU WISH.

    Affordable Care Act is anything but affordable for Citizens who have to pay for it and it is barely affordable for Citizens that are subsidized by taxpayers. It was created to funnel money into the pocket of the Elite Establishment.

    Turn off the oven, Obongo, you’re DONE!

  • John Burks

    obamacare and obama’s EPA are the main cause of the slow economy.

    • David Stewart

      EPA’s a nation-destroyer WITHOUT a Marxist in the White House; should be abolished STAT!

    F Obama, 2 months from now that low life scum bag will be an esoteric historical footnote and Trump will rescind all of his exec orders get you a whole bunch of crying trowels, parasitical scum bag.
