Lawless

Many left leaning bloggers are cheering the president's "bold move". It is a move that even President Obama described as was lawless.

President Obama:
"Believe me...the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting," he said, adding because that's not how things work with the constitution."

“I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true,” Obama declared. “And I think there’s been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetuating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It’s just not true.
There is a difference between what is right and what is legal. Try not following the speed limit or tax code because "it's the right thing to do".

Obama is refusing to enforce laws because of disagreements over policy.

Legally, President Obama has reiterated the principle that he can pick and choose which U.S. laws he wishes to enforce...

People who are anxious to give this president extra-legal power should remember that he is not president-for-life and sooner or later we will have a Republican president.

Do we really want any president to have that kind of power?

  1. Just after we have a rousing discussion on Authoritarianism and Totalitarianism.

    Just which is this, and for the next few months what will be the situation? Will elections be suspended?

    I guess we all best be figuring.

  3. It occurs to me that for each of his blatant attempts to buy votes from various special interest groups (War on Women, Gay marriage, illegal immigrants and who know shat next) that because these are controversial issues he runs the risk of losing at least as many voters as he gains. A lot of people voted for him in 2008 on the vague notion of Hope and Change. Now that his positions are "evolving" he is polarizing that very voting bloc. I think it will backfire.

  5. Good comments, all!

    This latest stratagem should serve as a wake-up call to anyone with a > room temperature IQ. His obvious desperation is convincing evidence that he knows his 'Hope and Change' ruse will not work again. While he may garner favor with some incongruous voters , I'm counting on the majority to: see through his "smoke and mirrors" scheme(s), oust him and allow America to once again rise to what we know it can be! Remember this: " A rising tide lifts all boats"-Socialism Sucks!!!!!!!

  7. Everyone with, as JonBerg says, a room temperature IQ knows this amnesty is a political stunt. It is impossible to implement, it is patently unfair and it is unconstitutional.
    Yet people are calling it bold. It is the same kind of boldness demonstrated by Al Capone. Maybe we should put Al's picture on the dollar bill?

  8. Maybe we should put B.O.'s picture on the $3 Bill!
