Michele Bachmann, still doing her Michele Bachmann thing, accused President Obama on Tuesday of ignoring the Constitution and acting like a "dictator" and a "king."

Appearing on Fox News, Bachmann claimed the president's delays of certain portions of Obamacare were "clearly unconstitutional." Bachmann also said she and fellow Congressional Republicans had considered releasing a resolution on the floor telling the president, "You’re not a king, you’re not a dictator, you can’t do whatever you want.”

“Our Constitution limits the president’s power even though President Obama doesn’t act that way,” Bachmann continued.

Bachmann then went on to claim Obama has "rewritten the Constitution for himself as a part of his effort to fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

“But we are a constitutional republic and members like myself are going to fight to keep that, for the people, a constitutional republic.”
