Dictator Obama May Issue Executive Order On Cybersecurity

(The Hill) -- Senate Republicans recently blocked cybersecurity legislation, but the issue might not be dead after all.

The White House hasn't ruled out issuing an executive order to strengthen the nation's defenses against cyber attacks if Congress refuses to act.

“In the wake of Congressional inaction and Republican stall tactics, unfortunately, we will continue to be hamstrung by outdated and inadequate statutory authorities that the legislation would have fixed," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in an emailed response to whether the president is considering a cybersecurity order.

"Moving forward, the President is determined to do absolutely everything we can to better protect our nation against today’s cyber threats and we will do that," Carney said.

The White House has emphasized that better protecting vital computer systems is a top priority.

The administration proposed its own legislation package in 2011, sent officials to testify at 17 congressional hearings and presented more than 100 briefings on the issue. In a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, President Obama warned that a successful cyber attack on a bank, water system, electrical grid or hospital could have devastating consequences.

The president urged Congress to pass the Cybersecurity Act, which was offered by Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine). The bill would have encouraged private companies and the government to share information about cyber threats and would have required critical infrastructure operators to meet minimum cybersecurity standards.

But Senate Republicans, led by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), worried the bill would burden businesses with unnecessary and ineffective regulations.

  1. What I'm saying is simple. The more you attack President Barack Obama personally, the more compassion he'll get from voters! They're already upset about the ways of the economy and Congress stalling on key issues for political gamesmanship. President Barack Obama is a likable person. Maybe to conservatives, he's the Kenyan, Marxist, communist, racist, Islamic dictator sent directly from the gates of hell to destroy the very livelihood of the United States!

    He inherited a mess. He's tried on fixing the mess with great opposition from Republicans and even Democrats from conservative states. They're sitting back waiting on him to fuck up so they get back into power.

    I hear, day in and day out, from Tea Party members and lifelong Libertarians here in AZ that President Obama is a dictator1. Here’s one fact among thousands that proves why he is NOT and why our grand experiment is alive and well.

    Knowledge is power -
    Since 2005, Ohio has had in person early-voting in the three days prior to the election. This year, however, the Republican legislature in Ohio eliminated early voting during this period, except for members of the military. The Obama lawsuit is attempting to restore voting rights for all Ohioans, not restrict them for the military or any other group.

    Man, you must really hate having a black man in office. The proof is in the pudding you're a racist like most rieth-wingers! reveal the dark racism of putative "conservatives" and many self identified Republicans. These latter comments often are chilling because they reflect an utter inability on the part of the writer to see the humanity in anyone who isn't a white heterosexual. And then there are the nutcases like the author of a comment I received yesterday that are obsessed with the lunacy that Barack Obama is out to "destroy America! Obama is no evil man.

    Romney unlike Obama isn't even Christian! You don't know a Marxist from a capitalist. Obama is NO Marxist! Really? IF he was Muslim, it would be pretty obvious right now during Ramadan as he would be fasting. You're fear mongering to close-minded individuals. Anyway...who cares? Separation of church and state! "Obama is a narcissist because he contradicts himself? Name one major philosophical/policy position Mitt Romney holds today that he held 12 years ago. Just one."

    Are you still promoting this.....misquote?

    \Finally,No, birthers say that they are fakes.
    But they are birther "experts"--who have not proven that they are experts and who certainly have not shown that they are fair and impartial. That's why no one believes them.
    Did you notice that the Conservative Secretary of State of Arizona, after checking with Hawaii, said that the latest confirmation from Hawaii was evidence that Obama was indeed born in Hawaii, and put him on the ballot.
    Two can play at this game. If you say that Obama's birth certificates are fakes, I will say that Mitt Romney's birth certificate is a fake. No one will believe either of us. making wild-eyed accusations that Obama is "anti-American?

    It's completely official. Conservatives are the Party of racist. This isn't about saving America, this was NEVER perserving to COnstitution. This was, is, and alsways will be, A triade by them to keep America Republican, Christian, and White.
