Republicans need to launch a publicity blitz in a bid to stop President Barack Obama from using his executive powers, says Seton Motley, founder of Less Government.

"The only really two things Republicans can do is either cut off his purse strings or impeach him — and with a Democrat Senate, it's impossible to do either,'' Motley told Joe Concha, guest host of "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"If I were in charge of the House of Representatives . . . I would set up a committee and all they would do [is] . . . issue press releases. He did this today, he did this this week . . .

"Really focus in, hone in on and amplify all the different ways he's violating his oath of office in the Constitution."

Story continues below video.



Still, Motley, whose group works to "reduce the size, scope and sphere of influence of government," says Americans tried to put the brakes on Obama's policies in 2010.

"Lest he forget, he had both houses of Congress and the American people didn't like what he was doing with them. So the American people, in a sweeping historic 2010 election, put a House Republican roadblock in front of him," he said.

"That wasn't a green light to then just start unilaterally doing stuff. It was a red light to him from the American people to say stop doing what you're doing and temper it a bit, i.e. temper it by negotiating with the Republican-majority House, and he didn't do that."
