(This post is just an excuse to gloat over the Patriots’ victory, but please read on, there’s a point here someplace.)

Has there ever been a more exciting Super Bowl final quarter than the one we saw during the Patriots’ latest win?

First, there was the improbable, amazing, super-stupendous “what the **** just happened” catch to put the Seahawks on the verge of victory:

Then, there was Bill Belichek playing mind games with Pete Carroll by not calling a time out, which caused “the call” and “the interception”:

None of that compares to what Obama has in store for his 4th Quarter, via RCP:

In terms of my own job, I’m energized. I’m excited about the prospects for the next couple of years. And I’m certainly not going to be stopping for a minute in the effort to make life better for ordinary Americans. Because thanks to their efforts, we really do have a new foundation that’s been laid. We are better positioned than we have been in a very long time. A new future is ready to be written. We’ve set the stage for — for this American moment. And I’m going to spend every minute of my last two years making sure that we seize it.

My presidency is entering the fourth quarter. Interesting stuff happens in the fourth quarter. and I’m looking forward to it. But going into the fourth quarter you usually get a time-out. I’m looking forward toy a quiet time-out, Christmas with my family. So I want to wish everyone a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year.

Well, at least Obama called a time out, unlike, you know, Pete Carroll.

ALERT – HERE IS MY “POINT”

The constitutional excitement Obama has planned in his 4th Quarter is explored in my column at The Daily Caller, Resist Obama’s Fourth Quarter Constitutional Power Grab:

We know what Obama does when he is frustrated with Congress: He ups the class warfare rhetoric then goes it alone.

The past is prologue.

Expect Obama to push regulatory authority to the extreme, coupled with executive action. There will be court challenges and congressional disgust, but Obama will create facts on the ground that he hopes will never be reversed.

You know the drill for when I write elsewhere. I give you a taste, you head over to the link, read the whole thing, then share it via Facebook and Twitter.

We have practiced this; you know what to do, so do it. Otherwise, Obama wins.
