Bottom line: there is no (zero, zip, zilch) constitutional authority for Obama to have done what he did in this instance. Yes, it was a shakedown, he had his Attorney General in the meeting essentially browbeating the CEO of BP into submission (BP CEO deserved it, he poured huge amounts of money into getting PBHO elected, so there is some karmic justice there). A sane legislative branch would be howling over this. PBHO acted as all three branches of government in this instance, providing the BP CEO with no legal recourse. Obama declared guilt, Obama assessed a fine, Obama directed how that fine would be paid, and who would oversee the disbursement of the fine (one of his non-congressionally approved czars). This is not even close to constitutional. Barton may have been somewhat clumsy in how he brought out the facts, but the fundamental issue of this event is not the fact that someone apologized for government overreach to a corporate executive, but that the president of the US is being given a pass for exercising power not vested in the office.
