The Hill ^ | 6/17/12 | Ben Geman & Rachel Leven

Senior White House adviser David Plouffe insisted Sunday that President Obama’s decision to defer deportation of certain illegal immigrants who came to the country as children was "fully within" the president's authority and not made with the 2012 election in mind. “This is not a political move.

Perhaps if someone who were council to the President
made a qualifying statement like this it might mean
something. From Ploof not so much, not much at all,
zip.

This is what we are up against with a state run media......

GOP criminal Nixon = threaten to impeach and run out of office,
RAT Bubba = Impeach but leave in office,
RAT Barry = "Ignore the Constitution and issue his own laws after Congress voted them down is all good. After all little Barry is working to get things done for Americans against a GOP run Congress who want him to fail." /sarc

I have come to the conclusion that Obama just wants to be dictator. Hopefully, a majority of voters will be perceptive enough to throw him out of office.

Plouffe: "President Obama’s decision to defer deportation of certain illegal immigrants is fully within the president's authority."

White is black.

Plouffe: "This is not a political move."

Oh, and black is white.

Well.....one can say without argument or rebuke that Chancellor Herr Hitler was absolutely sure that the "final solution" was 'fully within' his powers too.....

...or that the DESPICABLE ACTIONS of any dictator or wanna-be dictator that there has ever been in the history of the world was 'fully within' their powers too.

...Plouffe can say it, but it don't make it so.

The ONLY thing that makes it so now is that there is NOBODY in our Congress which are willing to tell President Zer0 no, by, say cutting off Executive branch money.

Of course it’s all about politics. But it’s probably legal.

Please state the constitutional and/or legal basis that grants this idiot the "authority".

And BS this isn't a political move. How f'n dumb does this administration think we are?

So a president can issue “rulings”.

It’s a (so far fairly) bloodless revolution we’re in.

“Hopefully, a majority of voters will be perceptive enough to throw him out of office.”

Since he has the military training to go against our civilian population I fully expect him to declare martial law and cancel the elections in November and declare himself dictator!

Plouffe couldn’t be better named...

He couldn’t get off of his talking points and has no acquaintance with the truth.

For that reason alone, his assertions regarding the legality of Obama’s actions are of no value.
