After spending several years insisting that it is not within the President’s powers to rewrite immigration law, that that’s a power reserved to Congress, and a President is not an emperor, Obama has now done an about-face so whiplash-inducing, it even has the Washington Post editors rubbing their ne…
It is interesting that Obama cites Scripture as the justification for him taking unilateral action on illegal immigrants.
Funny how, for the first six years of his Administration, even the two years when he had unstoppable majorities in both houses, Scripture did not compel immediate action. But two weeks after the final election he'll have to deal with, suddenly, Scripture requires us to do this.
It's similar to the way that his Biblical beliefs led him to oppose same-sex marriage as a candidate for election. Then when he needed big campaign donations from gay liberals for his reelection, the Bible suddenly got rewritten.
I always thought that Scripture was eternal and unchanging, but apparently, now that Obama is President, Scripture gets rewritten more often than Bill Cosby's Wikipedia entry.
I just returned from a trip to England where I was reminded of why Americans fled the tyranny of King George, now Americans are subjected to the tyrannical actions of "Emperor Obama' with his wholly unconstitutional Executive Action on Immigration. Our Founding Fathers created a system of government with checks and balances and the president's repeated actions bypassing Congress are an insult to the American people.
As a former Governor, I understand that complex legislation requires working with both Democrats and Republicans, listening to all sides, compromising when possible, and ultimately executing the will of the consent of the governed. President Obama has never learned that valuable lesson in leadership. He is wading off into dangerous waters by acting alone yet again on something as important as immigration.
My sympathies and condolences to the family of the great stage and screen director Mike Nichols, who died suddenly last night at 83, and especially to his wife of 26 years, Diane Sawyer. Nichols first became famous as half of the comedy team of Nichols and May with Elaine May. He went on to become one of very few people to win a Grammy, a Tony, an Oscar and an Emmy (and more than just one of some of those awards). His resume ranges from “The Graduate” to “Working Girl” to the original Broadway version of Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple.” He was a man of extraordinary talent and versatility.
