The power of the presidency (or “because his lips are moving”)

If a presidential candidate, ANY presidential candidate from any party at any time tells you he will;

cut taxes

raise taxes

cut spending

raise spending

balance the budget

bust the budget

create jobs

or anything related to those

KNOW that he is a liar, lying to you and he knows it.

The office of the presidency has NO authority to do ANY of those things, all of those issues are the responsibility and duty of Congress.  The only control the office of the presidency has over those issues is that of veto, he can sign the bills or veto them.

If a candidate tells you otherwise he’s a liar, do not vote for him.


From the Constitution of the United States of America:

The President shall

be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states,

have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.

have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties,

nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States,

have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session.

from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient;

[may], on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper

receive ambassadors and other public ministers

take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.

Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation:–“I 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.”
