There’s no question as to whether or not President Obama perpetrated unprecedented illegality recently after announcing his Executive Order for amnesty. Obama himself has explained in the past on several occasions that it’s unconstitutional for him to unilaterally grant amnesty – and a reporter recently decided to call him out on just that.
The incident took place during an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. Obama was asked, “How do you respond to the argument, a future president comes in and wants lower taxes. Doesn’t happen. Congress won’t do it. He says I’m not going to prosecute those who don’t pay capital gains taxes?”
Of course the scenario was hypothetical, but touched on the dangerous precedent Obama is setting by doing essentially the same thing here with regards to amnesty. In response, Obama mustered up this ridiculousness:
“The reason that we have to do prosecutorial discretion in immigration is that we know we are not even close to being able to deal with the folks who have been here a long time.
The vast majority of folks understand that they need to pay taxes, and when we conduct an audit, for example, we are selecting those folks who are most likely to be cheating. We’re not going after millions and millions of people who everybody knows are here and we’re taking advantage of low wages as they’re mowing lawns or cleaning out bedpans, and looking the other way.”
So we’re going to allow 5 million criminals who have broken the law stay in our country to pay taxes? I’m glad this had nothing to do with dying voter pools a bit more blue – that’s a relief.
Hammering Obama’s hypocrisy home, Stephanopoulos clarified by asking, “So you don’t think it’d be legitimate for a future president to make that argument?” Obama replied with a simple, “With respect to taxes? Absolutely not.”
Of course it wouldn’t be legitimate, since only Obama and his illegal immigrants can break the law while Americans are expected to look the other way. And this guy has the nerve to say that he’s not an emperor. He certainly acts the part. What do you guys think? Feel free to share your thoughts on Obama’s utter incompetence in the comments.
