Allen West on Obama: 'The Resurrection of an Imperial Presidency'
1:21 PM, Jun 18, 2012 By DANIEL HALPER
Speaking this morning to talk radio host Laura Ingraham, Florida congressman Allen West, a Republican, blasted President Obama's immigration plan to use prosecutorial discretion not to go after young immigrants who came to the United States illegally. Obama announced his new immigration plan on Friday.
"What country did we wake up in on Friday?," West asked. "It just causes people to ask, where are we? You know, the last time we had this was with King George III, and we didn't like it too much. And I think that youre seeing the resurrection of an imperial presidency, and the arrogance thereof. To think that you can come out and basically tell the American people that this is what we're going to do ... and don't question me."
The big hold up for West seems to be Obama's decision to bypass Congress and the law of the land. "America is not about ruling by verbal edict or just whims; the president has been elected to enforce the laws of this country. And he doesn't get to pick which laws he likes or dislikes. And I find it very perplexing and ironic that when he had control of the House and Senate, this did not seem like a very important issue."

West is getting better.
We are going to see more of him in the future.
Hussein is getting worse...
If obama gets another term, Allen West and others could be in danger of “dissapearing”.
I’ll put my chips on West to survive anything the Muzzlim throws his way.
I think the “rise” of the imperial presidency would be more accurate, even though he was comparing Hussein to George III. Or perhaps the resurrection of the imperial ruler. At any rate, I fully understand his point, and it’s a good one. West is a sharp guy.
That’ll serve them right for not doing a damn thing today.
Either put up or shut up — that’s what these critters are paid for to do.
Obama has dictatorial tendencies. He may not think so, but it certainly seems that he does.
I believe he thinks so, he just thinks he can get away with it. So far, he is right. He has gotten away with it, and will continue to get away with it. Nobody will do anything, and he knows it.
Hussein is what he is a bloody beguiling Marxist/Communist
Anti-American Muslim (more aptly probably more like Hitler a Pagan) But he is what he claimed to be when he and his ghost
wrote Dreams of my Father. We have been beguiled. I did not vote for him—nor did I attend any of the pagan drool love fests that marked his campaign for hope and Change. We’ve got the change-question is will the Lord raise up men will to lead us back to America —or will we die in our Sin?
