Obama plans to bypass Congress

It looks like the State of the Union speech this Tuesday is going to be a big deal:
White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday that President Obama will offer "practical" proposals to move the country forward this year and suggested the president will take executive action to advance his agenda when Congress doesn't cooperate.

"If Congress doesn't act, the president will," Pfeiffer told "Fox News Sunday."

Pfeiffer's comments mark the second time this weekend that he has attempted to prepare Americans for what Obama will say in his State of the Union address Tuesday before Congress.

On Sunday, Pfeiffer said those proposals will include efforts to increase the minimum wage, extend unemployment insurance and pass comprehensive immigration reform.

That is the language of a dictator, not a President. Obama has no power to take "executive action" on any of those issues.
