Boom! Rep. Marsha Blackburn: Barack Obama Has Gone from ‘Yes We Can’ to ‘Because We Can’
Posted: July 30, 2014
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) blasted the Obama administration this week, as she sarcastically wished Obama cared as much about our veterans as he does about spending $4 billion on amnesty for illegal immigrants.
The immigration crisis is now overwhelming, with Southern border cities facing massive expenses to take care of illegals who are literally dumped off in buses by the Federal government without warning.
Some key quotes from Blackburn’s speech (above):
Indeed the Administration appears extremely organized and eager when it comes to resettling illegal immigrants in the country. I wish they were as eager and organized about addressing the concerns of our veterans, some who have died while on the VA waiting list.
Sadly, the Democrats have moved from the party of ‘Yes we can’ to the party of ‘Because we can,’ she continued, mockingly referring to the Obama 2008 presidential campaign slogan so many Democrats were mesmerized by.
Rep. Blackburn went on to say that DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which Obama illegally and unconstitutionally implemented without Congress:
DACA provides yet another example of how the president is using executive action to circumvent Congress. Soon, if he continues on the path, we won’t need legislators or the courts. The president will make the law, interpret the law, and then if he chooses, enforce the law.
The Obama doctrine of lawlessness is cracking the foundation of our democracy. It is shredding the Constitution.
Blackburn took it a step further, and made the point that the Tea Party has been making for years: If Obama can create laws too, where does his authority begin and end? If he can allow illegals to stay in the U.S., then why can’t he force legal citizens to leave America too? When the Constitution no longer matters, Obama’s whims become mandates. But that’s not how a President is supposed to Govern- That’s more like a King or dictator!
There was a time when liberals hated President George W. Bush for his supposedly unconstitutional actions. Where is that same outrage today?
