Obama: Screw the law. I won.


That’s the way I read this:

Facing growing opposition to his economic proposals and dimming prospects that Congress will pass other parts of his agenda, President Obama told a Hispanic group in Washington Wednesday that when it comes to the issue of immigration, “I’d like to work my way around Congress.”

“As I mentioned when I was at La Raza a few weeks back, I wish I had a magic wand and could make this all happen on my own,” Obama told a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. “There are times where — until Nancy Pelosi is speaker again — I’d like to work my way around Congress.”

As he continued, Obama conceded that “we’ve got laws on the books that have to be upheld.” But he quickly added there are different ways to uphold the laws on the books. “You know as well as anyone that…how we enforce those laws is also important,” Obama said.

Last month, the administration made a major, unilateral change in immigration law enforcement when it announced that the government will not initiate deportation proceedings against illegal immigrants unless they have committed serious crimes. To critics, Obama had indeed worked his way around Congress. To the Hispanic Caucus, Obama said his new policy will “prioritize criminals who endanger our communities, not students trying to achieve the American dream.”

No, you POS, you either enforce the law or you don’t, but there are not a lot of ways to do it. You only see shades of gray because you’re a Chicago thug who doesn’t care one whit for the law; you only care about your leftist agenda and your (doomed) re-election bid.

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

Naw, not really, but it sounds more interesting than the real bio, so there you are.

Thanks, Queen, for picking up on Obama doubling down on what he said to La Raza. He acknowledged what he said then and so ther can be no doubt he is trying to convey a message. That message can only be “If you folks think I am doing everything I possibly can to get around the laws of this country now, just re-elect me and wait to see what I will do when I have no more elections to face.” He was speaking to the Hispanic Caucus, but his message needs to be replayed in every corner of society. He… Read more »
