Barack Obama has just pulled a play action pass. It is a play in football where the quarterback fakes a handoff, hoping to fool the defenders. The questions is, will it work?
Obama’s play action pass today was his announcement that he was granting amnesty to illegal aliens under certain circumstances.
The play was a shameless pandering to the open borders crowd.
That was the fake.
Many Republicans rose to the bait. They should have, as Obama’s act was absolutely outrageous.
Unfortunately many who are jumping to the fake are not realizing what is really going on.
While Obama’s amnesty is a serious issue, there is an even more important issue that we must be worried about.
Obama is beginning to act more like a dictator than a President. If it is bad now, what will happen if he is reelected and does not have to face the voters again?
Obama’s flirtation with dictatorship began with the Czars. Despite the constitutional requirements that senior administration officials be appointed with the advice and consent of the Senate, Obama simply appointed unaccountable and unconfirmed Czars.
Then came the Defense of Marriage Act. DOMA was passed by the Congress in the 1990’s and it was signed into law by Bill Clinton. Obama announced that he had decided the law was unconstitutional. So instead of going to Congress and demanding the law be repealed, Obama simply announced he would no longer defend the law. Thus, if he had his way DOMA would be repealed by fiat. The leaders of the House of Representatives hired their own lawyers to defend DOMA.
Now, Obama has decided he is going to ignore another law. The law mandates that illegal aliens be removed from the country. The law sets specific procedures for those who want to come to this country. For political reasons, he wants to pander to illegal aliens so he is simply ignoring the law.
Our founding fathers created a system where change would be difficult and where the President, with a couple of exceptions, was a weak chief executive.
Obama does not like that. He wants to be a dictator. He does not want to have to deal with the difficulties of democracy. So now, he is just ignoring laws he does not like.
What is next? Ruling by fiat?
Obama’s actions reveal an even more difficult problem. In America, we have two sides of the political spectrum. We have the Democrats and the Republicans. One of these sides believes in playing by the rules and following those rules. The other side does not care about the rules nor does it play by them. The other side only cares about power. It wants to obtain power and hold power, regardless of what the Constitution says.
For America, this is a situation that is very grave and must be resolved. The Democrats have been taken over by the hard left and unless they move back into the political mainstream, America will not survive.
it sounded like he wanted to get one more step to legalizing anker baby's.
that way it would not be a shoke to us when he makes them legal citicen's
I may be wrong but think about it.
I agree with everything about this article except the bottom line. I want to re-write that last line as follows:
"The Democrats have been taken over by the hard left and unless they move back into the political mainstream, America will not survive. "
That needs to be this instead:
"The Democrats have been taken over by the hard left and unless they move back into the political mainstream, THEY will not survive. "
The reason I say this is, my lifetime of experiences with the obvious "tough guys" who are occasionally "everywhere" and APPEAR to be completely in charge.
If you're a teenager walking around a city like Chicago and you see some Tough Guys giving you a dirty look and saying some nasty thing to you, you would tend to avoid them, right? However, deep down, you probably know that even if you get in a fight and even if they beat the heck out of you, somebody somewhere will back you up (eventually) and they will be sorry in the end. This may be less and less true in America, but it is mostly because the BIG DOGS are ASLEEP on the porch.
America has a fond tendency to "let sleeping dogs lie" and that is often a good thing. However, in this case, I believe Obama just 'stepped in it' neck deep and now:
THE BIG DOGS ARE AWAKE and about to get off the porch.
Deep down, every American knows that a President pissing on our Constitution to get re-elected and acting JUST LIKE a Chicago Mafia guy is simply NOT going to work. Oh it will work with the foolish groupies who follow him for the crumbs that drop out of his Limo(s)........ but it will NOT work when the BIG DOGS are off the porch. That is where we are.
I think he just guaranteed that every single Conservative, Republican and Independent WILL BE VOTING now, and he probably helped to assure that a LOT of Democrats will just stay home / to avoid any contact with the BIG DOGS.
Sadly, what was once a government of the people, by the people and for the people has been made into The United States National Institute of Treachery. We, the people, have been sold out by those in whom we placed too much trust. It has certainly not been all the doing of not-President Mystery Cipher, but he has taken actions that just about all of his predecessors had employed on rare occasions and has made them standard practice.
Who gave Congressmen, Public Employees, Supreme Court Justices, Presidents the right to tell the population of the United States to PISS OFF.
If nothing else, readers should be reminded that the following occurs in the 2012 Election.
1) To vote for Obama in 2012 is to vote against the Constitution of the United States which requires only “Natural Born Citizens” qualified to run and be elected.
2) To vote for RUBIO (on a ticket as VP) in 2012 is to vote against the Constitution of the United States which requies only “Natural Born Citizens” qualified to run and be elected.
Either way, the VOTER votes to install dictators in the Offices of the Federal Government.
You basically accept the fact that the Constitution of the United States has been crapped on, used as toilet tissue, and flushed down the commode.
Anyone that does not understand this problem had best download a copy of the Constitution, read it carefully, and pray that enough concerned citizens will fight before they succumb to a Dictatorship.
The Obama foot ball play is only trying to buy votes and #1 occurs to the stupidity of illegals not knowing that their vote was bought.
This is a straight out crime by the PRESIDENT of the UNITED States entailing VOTER FRAUD.
These people need to be taken down in NOV.
The Voter Fraud has started and these people sponsor it.
How could ANY country surviive with the biggest ALL-time Crooks, Frauds, Murderers, TRAITORS and Anarchists being tolerated for an "administration", and STILL after 4 years allowed to run our Nation into the ground with IMPUNITY and ARROGANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Between the Fed. and the Gov't. we could not have had a worse outcome had we put a Communist Muslim in Office----wait a minute!
