Dear Liberals, Democrats, and Obamaites across the fruited plain

What would you say if George W. Bush had boasted this:

 “One of the things I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting,” he said, “is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need.”
“I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” the president asserted, “and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.” here
Chirpity fucking chirp. Seriously, wouldn't we all be screaming about the President taking on dictatorial powers? This is ninth grade civics, people.

So David Rivkin was asked about this and he said to challenge this required "standing".
You have to be aggrieved.
The actions have to harm you.
I guess having your income confiscated and given to someone else extralegally doesn't qualify.
