Obama: 'I am Keeping My Czars,' Even Though Required to Relinquish them by Law | Video Added

President Obama has a potentially disturbing message for Congress:  he is keeping his czars and there is nothing Congress can do about it.  That's right, despite his czars being defunded in the new budget that he signed yesterday, the President has decided to "ignore" what the law says.

In a statement released to Congress, the President wrote in regard to his requirement to get rid of his czars (emphasis mine):
"The President has well-established authority to supervise and oversee the executive branch, and to obtain advice in furtherance of this supervisory authority.  The President also has the prerogative to obtain advice that will assist him in carrying out his constitutional responsibilities, and do so not only from executive branch officials and employees outside the White House, but also from advisers within it. 
"Legislative efforts that significantly impede the President's ability to exercise his supervisory and coordinating authorities or to obtain the views of the appropriate senior advisers violate the separation of powers.  Therefore, the executive branch will construe [the law as to] not to abrogate these Presidential prerogatives."
In other words, even though Congress has passed a law and he signed it, he intends to ignore it.  Let me repeat that:  he (the President) is ignoring Congress because it "violates the separation of powers."  Following that logic, no matter what the Congress passes, President Obama believes he can utterly disregard it.

And he was a Constitutional "professor?"  Even he should be ashamed to do something so illegal.
Listen to Congress and the American people?  *Ha*
No big shock:  Republicans were not impressed.  Michael Steel responded to the news:
"It's not surprising that the White House, having bypassed Congress to empower these 'Czars' is objecting to eliminating them."
Let me just say this:  if the President does not believe that he has to follow American law, that is exceedingly dangerous.  That goes without saying.

Update:  Oh, and go figure, another broken promise/lie:
