This article gives a good discussion on where Obama is going wrong and acting like Hugo Chavez.

Excerpt: The Obama Record: The chief executive who swore to faithfully execute the nation’s laws picks those he’ll ignore and makes up others through regulation and executive order. He sees no need for a Congress or Constitution. 

Maybe it’s because Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts stumbled a bit in leading President Obama through the oath of office that the president doesn’t feel bound by it. 

But through the awkwardness these words were heard: “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” 

It would not take Obama long to make clear he meant his interpretation of the Constitution, not the Supreme Court’s, a principle established in Marbury v. Madison, the 1802 case that formed the basis for the exercise of judicial review in the U.S. under Article III of the Constitution.
