But, to quote another Democrat/liberal/progressive (DLP) icon, Hillary Clinton: "What difference does it make?" By the way, Clinton made that remark when testifying about why the American people were purposefully misled about the Benghazi terrorist attacks. Some believe that the Benghazi cover up was orchestrated solely to protect Obama during his re-election. I include Clinton's remark here because it fits so well with the current situation.
What message is Obama sending? Well, if he can't be bothered with a law that he signed, why should he be bothered with a minor complication such as the law of the land, the US Constitution? He has shown his contempt for the Constitution with his "We Can't Wait" program. Obama, on October 24, 2011, said, "... we can't wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won't act, I will." Note that Obama offered no definition of what an "increasingly dysfunctional Congress" is. So I guess we are left with his definition of an increasingly dysfunctional Congress, one that won't give him everything he wants. Has Obama ever heard of the concept of "separation of powers" enumerated in the US Constitution? By saying, "I will," he trashed that concept. But, then, I guess Obama was too busy teaching constitutional law to bother reading the US Constitution.
What's next? Is Obama going to appoint himself king?
But that's just my opinion
