What to do with a President who toils against the will of the American people?
Approval ratings of Barack Obama’s handling of immigration reached a low not long ago, reaching a 65% disapproval. Americans overwhelmingly oppose Obama’s current threats of unilateral action on immigration and overwhelmingly prefer that Obama work with Congress.
The GOP is now poised to control both the House and the Senate come January, so why not wait a few months to try to work with the new Congress?
I think it’s because he has no interest in cooperation. I think he wants to be impeached and there are two primary reasons. One, he doesn’t give a rip what anyone other than Valerie Jarrett thinks and two, any impeachment effort will be immediately characterized as a lynching- a lynching of the first black President.
For his entire career Obama has been described as a “loner” and “aloof.” despite his numerous policy failures he really does think he is the smartest man in the world. The only person to whom he listens is Valerie Jarrett, the Iranian slumlord.
The problem is, the truth is always the opposite of what he says. About the only honest thing Obama has ever said was his desire to fundamentally transform this country. As far as I am concerned he cemented it later by trying to walk it back. It is no different with immigration. He once said that he couldn’t bypass Congress:
“And so what we need to do going forward is to address some of the broader problems in our immigration system. And that means changing minds and changing votes, one at a time. I know there are some folks who wish I could just bypass Congress. I can’t. But what I can do is sign a law. What you can do is champion a law. What we can do together is make comprehensive immigration reform the law of the land.”
Let’s put that through Official Barack Obama Bullshit Decoder Ring and see what we get:
President Barack Obama on Friday defended his plans to use executive power to bypass Congress…
Americans don’t want Obama to act alone. They don’t want a rogue President.
Following the mid term election pounding, Obama said “I hear you.” The useful idiots at WaPo put it this way:
Uh, no he didn’t. Immediately after he said that:
Charles Krauthammer has said that Obama acting alone would be an “impeachable offense.” He’s right, of course, but I suspect that that’s exactly what Obama wants as he seeks a legacy. To Obama, everything is about Obama. The fist black President impeached? Now that would be quite a legacy. Impeachment of the first black President would be memorable and the effects lasting and could rescue the democrat party from its own stupidity. The good news is that left to his own devices, Obama could unilaterally lead to the extinction of the democrat party. The bad news is that, since the law and Constitution are being so greatly diminished, there might not be much of a functional country left when he’s done. The proper course is to sit back, let Obama continue to harm the Republic and then financially starve his initiatives.
Over at The Daily Beast, Doug McIntyre asks
“Didn’t Obama Hear Oregon’s Warning Shot on Immigration?”
That assumes Obama gives a damn what anyone else thinks. He does not care what you think, he does not care what I think and he does not care what America thinks.
Call his bluff
UPDATE for one of our commenters: Let Obama tell you why he could be impeached:
