Obama: I’m Not Acting Like An Emperor – WaPo Fact Checker: Yes, You Are…

Really, Obama? You do realize your ridiculous speech yesterday was broadcast worldwide, right? Obama flip flops quickly when he realizes he must go another way to force his absurd Amnesty – oops, I mean, ‘Immigration Reform’ policies through. Read on…..


Via Washington Post:

Question: Your administration has deported a record high number, 1.5 million, of undocumented immigrants, more than your predecessor. And I know your administration took some steps last year to protect unintended undocumented immigrants from being deported. However many people say those efforts were not enough. What I’d like to know is what you’re going to do now, and until the time that immigration reform is passed, to insure that more people aren’t being deported and families are not being broken apart.

Obama: Well, look Jackie, this is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is that you know I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed, and Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system. […]

The Pinocchio Test

The president has certainly been consistent on this issue—until he saw that the path through Congress was blocked. It’s clear from the interviews that the president was not being asked about executive orders that would have provided comprehensive immigration reform, but about specific actions that ended deportations of a subset of illegal immigrants—precisely the type of action he will shortly unveil.

Previously he said that was not possible, using evocative language that he is not a “king” or “the emperor.” Apparently he’s changed his mind. The president earns an upside-down Pinocchio for his flip-flop

Welcome to primary school, folks.

“No I’m not”
“Yes you are”
“Yea, well, I’m rubber, you are glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you!”

This was literally the exchange between my 7 year old niece and nephew one week ago as they argued over who was a ‘smelly pants’ in my backseat.

Seems like Obama took a page from the mouths of babes. Grow up and realize that your failed policies aren’t going to get anywhere, and you will be remembered as the President who tried to bring down America. Your ‘Executive Action’ is laughable.
