Obama: If I Could Bypass Congress on Immigration, I Would Do So
National Review ^ | 11/26/2013 | Andrew Johnson

Posted on 11/26/2013 6:02:33 AM PST by SeekAndFind

During remarks on immigration, President Obama was confronted onstage by a protester calling on him to use executive power to bypass Congress on the issue.

The protester, standing behind the president during a speech in San Francisco, was joined by others who began to chant “Stop deportation!” “If, in fact, I could solve all these problems without passing them through Congress, I would do so,” President Obama responded. “But we’re also a nation of laws.”

During his remarks, the president praised supporters of the Senate bill, including activists fasting on the National Mall, and encouraged House Speaker John Boehner, whom he said is “sincere” in wanting to pass immigration reform, to follow their lead.

The president is on a West Coast fundraising swing.

“We’re a nation of laws”... for now. But we’d all be better off if my word was law. /S

Mr. Obama, is there any law that you would respect if it got in the way of something you really wanted to do?

I thought not.

How DARE illegal invaders chant or demand ANYTHING!

They're lucky that they weren't rounded up then and there.
We should drop them off in North Korea and see how far they get protesting there.

Especially with the commie ‘RATS tanking in the polls for 2014, right Barry? America needs more low information voters who are dependent upon the government for the commie ‘RAT Party to survive.

Obama even lies to his followers. He has used executive power on immigration to change or ignore enforcement and grant temporary status to illegals potentially eligible under the proposed Dream Act.

Why now does the King not act? What we know is the King does not act on issues he knows is politically damaging and seeks cover through congress. GOP beware!

It’s the same tactic that Emporer Palpatine used to gain supreme power over the senate, he reluctantly accepted this great responsibilty... it’s the same scene played out at this staged Nobama event.

This is not the first time the Lyin’ King has cited that Pesky Constitution as an OBSTRUCTION to his ambitions, rather than the FOUNDATION of Our Nation.

Probably a “paid” protester by the Obama administration. You have to understand the’re like illusionists; they fabricate these type moments for the MSM while the cameras are rolling to make 0 look like a good guy. 0 probably even has a beer with his paid protesters after his speech is over.

“If I could be a dictator, I would but that damned Constitution keeps getting in the way!”

Since Woodrow Wilson was a young sophomoric Eurotrash wannabe the Progressives have seen the Constitution not as America's bulwark against tyranny but as America's Original Sin, a grand impediment to immanentizing the eschaton. Obama drank deeply from that cup.

Which is exactly why the founding fathers put in place the series of checks and balances, and why we have the 2nd amendment for when all else fails.
