All signs are pointing to President Obama soon bypassing Congress and unilaterally granting amnesty to possibly five million illegals (if not more). Based on what Obama’s surrogates have been telling reporters in recent days, the strategy would appear to be one that involves the extreme use of executive authority, and then blaming it all on Congress for having been put in a situation where the president was “forced” to act with his infamous pen.
But POTUS was sounding a very different tone just one year ago. In a Telemundo interview with Jose Diaz-Balart back in September of 2013, Obama proclaimed, “My job in the executive branch is supposed to be to carry out the laws that are passed … if we start broadening that, then essentially, I would be ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally. So that’s not an option.”
What a difference a year makes. But Barry rarely cares about consistency. Are you as interested as I am to hear his new “legal defense” if and when amnesty happens? I guess he was against breaking the law before he was for it.
