I believe 0bama wants exactly that to happen. Look at his pattern, create a "crisis" real or manufactured, then pass some onerous "solution".
Look at his record:
1) Upon assuming office the cry goes up that 30 million people will LOSE their health insurance. This could have been relieved using free market solutions with minimum cost to the taxpayer. Instead we get this HUGE monstrosity rammed through using dubious procedures.
2) Car companies are struggling. Can't let them solve the problem, maybe go chapter 11 and renegotiate contracts.
Nope: The Fed needs to nationalize the car companies.
3) Oil spill in the Gulf. Don't get on the problem immediately, Don't allow other countries to help. don't bring in skimmers, instead play golf & party for a month.
Let the spill get out of hand. Now impose an unnecessary ban on drilling and shakedown a company.
Finally immigration: Don't enforce the laws on the books don't enforce the border, sue the state TRYING to do the job. Now instead of simply getting a fence on the border, enforcing the laws, and then once the border is secure and illegals are SELF deporting, then talking about what to do, NOPE we need AMNESTY.
Just as Hitler did after the Reichstag fire, govern in crisis mode, don't allow people to catch their breath and consider options, just ram your socialist agenda through.
