Nothing is ever his fault.

Via The Hill:

President Obama said he would prefer to accomplish his ambitious second-term agenda with the help of Congress, but that he would employ “a judicious use of executive power” where necessary to reach policy goals.

Obama’s remarks, made during an interview with the New Republic, come as many in Washington expect the president’s administration to push forward aggressively with a host of regulations in the coming months and years.

They also follow Obama’s proposal earlier to combat gun violence through an array of measures including 23 separate presidential directives that do not need congressional approval. The executive measures do not include a ban on assault weapons or other cornerstones of the plan, which do require legislation.

But they still came under fire from some on the right. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, for example, described Obama’s unilateral actions, which include an order directing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to study the causes of gun violence, as an “executive power grab.”
