    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will propose legislation early next week to “nullify” President Barack Obama’s executive actions on guns, the senator announced on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday.

    Paul told host Sean Hannity that Obama’s executive orders are a breach of constitutional separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches.

    “Our founding fathers were very concerned about us having separation of powers,” Paul said. “They didn’t want to let the president become a king…In this bill, we will nullify anything the president does that smacks of legislation.”

    “There are several of the executive orders that appear as if he is writing new law. That cannot happen…The court struck Clinton down for trying this.”

    Paul also said it concerning that Obama seems to be developing some sort of a “king complex.”

    Talking Points Memo has reviewed a one-page summary of Paul’s proposed legislation, titled “Separation of Powers Restoration and Second Amendment Protection Act.” TPM has more:


    “We only have descriptions of the executive actions, yet many could be construed to describe an attempt by the executive to make laws in violation of the Article 1, Sec. 8 of the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment,” reads the one-page summary of the Paul plan shared with TPM by his staff.

    Paul’s bill will set out to nullify Obama’s executive actions, deny any federal funding for their implementation, and allow members of Congress and state officials to challenge the actions in court.

    Paul conceded that Democrats in the Senate, who hold the majority, would likely not back his proposal.

    “This idea of checks and balances and separation of powers should be a fundamental one,” he said. “I’m afraid that there isn’t much support on the Democratic side, but we’ll see.”

    I don't think anyone can take him seriously with that haircut.

    I know what you mean. Anybody with bad hair can't be taken seriously.

    He does need a new doo though....

    but I agree, I think it what's "inside" the noggin' that's important too. Sad thing is that many voters are going to base their stance on someone because of hair etc.

    Curly hair AND a comb-over is a bad combination.
