Everybody knows that the children of Illegals didn’t have any say what so ever in coming to America. We also know that doing a blanket amnesty on any group of people via Executive Order is wrong. Just because, any President can withdraw that order.
In saying this, the Executive Branch is overstepping its bounds by intruding onto the Legislative Branch. In doing so, the Executive Branch will be sued and get the Judicial Branch involved. So what the President did was get all three Branches of the U.S. Government involved in the turmoil of immigration.
So instead of bringing the people of America together, the President again, has divided the country. The idea of keeping angry and divided, instead of all of us working together to fix the problems is working again.
The President did make a brilliant political move. Guarantee the Hispanic vote, make the Republicans look like fools and bypass Congress. But, also it will lose him votes with some independents that he ignores the rule of law. Time will tell if the President overall vote count will increase or decrease with this Executive Order.
Some people say to Impeach the President, get him out of office. But, in reality that will never happen. You just need a majority of house members to start the impeachment proceedings. Articles of Impeachment are handed over to the Senate. The Senate hears the evidence and votes. You need 2/3 of the Senators to agree to convict. As long as there are more than 34 Democratic Senators, the conviction will never happen. So the Republicans are stuck with the President doing things that he can never be successfully Impeached and convicted.
The only way to remove the President from office in reality is two ways.
(1) Vote him out of office
(2) Get 2/3 of the Senate Republican
Both of these two things can happen in the November 2012 vote. Otherwise, you are just wasting political capital, time and money.
There is a third way.
The same way we got rid of British rule.
Why do so many repeat this? It's an act of desperation plain and simple. It's akin to the scene in The Dictator when he shoots his opponent (Rubio) in order to win the race.
Look, he already has the majority of the Hisapnic support. I do not believe this will effect the turnout in that demo significantly. On the other hand he's ensured a near 100% turnout for the GOP. The target of this EO, technically, can not vote anyway. Small wonder the DOJ has been threatening states attempting to put some integrity in the voter rolls.
