You're right about that Chief. But Obama's painted himself into a corner now, and Reid by leaving town and letting the House pass a bill just may have handed the president the can of paint.
Obama can't paint himself into a corner. He'll just walk on the paint. What we see is another red line got painted. September. yawn. For what? Action! yawn. This President runs on his own time table. When he says "We need to end the Bush tax cuts," he means "Extend them, and extend them again, and then make some of them permanent, and then we Must end the Bush tax cuts!" I could easily see Obama coming back in Sep and saying a number of candidates have asked me not to nationalize this election so we've decided to postpone our action until after the elections. Feliz Navidad
I think this is just talk. September would be a terrible time to spring an executive order. If it fails to have public support there is little time to recover by Nov.
I think Obama is trying to goad the unhinged in our party like Rep Steve King to keep talking about impeachment and cantaloupes.
It's a stupid play. It gets money from the rat base but it also pisses me off and I'm assuming lots of other Republicans. There are 356 bills on SML Reid's desk. The House passed a temp fix for the border but Herr Obama says he wants to wave his magic wand and fabricate his own comprehensive law without Congress. Am I to believe things are so desperate for Obama that he would give up his biggest bludgeon before Nov. He's never been this desperate before?
Sorry. I'm long past believing Obama will keep a promise/threat. Obama has shown zero interest in the betterment of the black community, American's in general, much less the refuse of the 3rd world. If it doesn't better Obama it ain't worth it to him. An executive order amnesty is a high risk gamble for an unknown benefit.
Obama is at 40% approval. If he gets down to 25-30% even the rats will be talking about impeachment. Does he really think an overreaching blanket amnesty will add more rat voters than it will cost? I wouldn't take that bet.
An enormous backlash could erupt from an unpopular amnesty for hospital clogging, disease ridden, job stealing, welfare cheating, criminals who crowd our prisons and schools. The people outraged over this would likely vote for the squishyist RINO who suddenly realized a 20 ft tall reinforced fence with razorwire and spotlights might actually look kind of cozy around the land of the free and the home of the brave...ya know, if the sun was setting and there were some fluffy clouds.
Executive orders can be overturned by judges and legislation and elections and something else.
