Amnesty: The Obama Who Would Be King

By Bob Parks Saturday, July 31, 2010

Most of us were obviously under the mistaken impression that as a representative republic, we send congresspersons and senators to Washington, D.C. to craft legislation the president either signs into law or vetos. We believed the president couldn’t just do whatever he wanted.

What were we thinkin’?

The Obama administration, unable to push an immigration overhaul through Congress, is considering ways it could go around lawmakers to let undocumented immigrants stay in the United States, according to an agency memo. The internal draft written by officials at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services outlines ways the government could provide “relief” to illegal immigrants — including delaying deportation for some, perhaps indefinitely, or granting green cards to others — in the absence of legislation revamping the system.

Note how cocky the president and Democrat leadership have been of late, despite the polls that universally show they’re about to be trounced in November. What do they know that we don’t? Are we going to even have elections?

If the administration believes they can “go around lawmakers“, what’s to stop them from staying in power indefinitely…?

  1. I can see Obama doing that. And once he has given 20 million illegal immigrants "relief" as U.S. citizens with voting rights, his ObamaCare would never be repealed.

    Instead, these illegals would bring their mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, dogs and ferrets here for health care, while baby boomers who paid for the health care the illegals are receiving are denied even life saving medications.

    Welcome to ObamaLand.
