VIDEO: Obama explains last year why he can’t do what he did yesterday on illegal immigration

Posted by: ST on June 16, 2012 at 6:53 pm

Our Panderer in Chief got it right last year in a televised Q and A on Univision (via @Nickarama1):

That was then, of course – and this is now … an election year where he’s floundering with almost all key voting blocs, so the strategy is to “win at all costs” – including at the expense of the US Constitution.

I can see November from my house.

    Like everything else he says, his take on anything constitutional has an expiration date – usually about 6 months before an election.

    The current resident of The Peoples’ House needs an expiration date, too. Hopefully, that will be given him in November.

    How on earth did anyone ever consider him a “constitutional expert”? The explanation for all this has to involve his incredible narcissistic megalomania.

    And with that in mind, I’m still dead certain he will create some sort of major national crisis where he suspends the Constitution, the Congress and the elections. With any luck, there will still be a few military leaders that won’t let that happen.

  2. As for Obhammud being “expert” at anything it is helpful to dissect the word. An “ex” is a has-been and a “spurt” is a drip under pressure. Desperate people do desperate things, exactly as we are seeing now. This detestable practice of pandering and pitting citizens against one another is straight out of the Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton Book of Hate. It is the only way they have of identifying their supporters.

    How’s this for a thought: Obhammud is desperately pandering for the criminal alien vote, but what about the 300+ Mexicans who have died as a direct result of either Obhammud’s or Holder’s, or both, actions concerning the prosecution of selling guns to those who would bring down the Mexican government? Are the criminal aliens so inured of feelings for their fellow countrymen that those deaths don’t count?

    How is it that every single news report on the president’s “new” position isn’t starting with this video?

    You literally couldn’t create a video that is more at odds with the current policy. Yet, no one is mentioning it in the MSM???
    What am I missing here? Can someone please explain this to me?

    And last week, students without immigration papers started a campaign of sit-ins and hunger strikes at Obama campaign offices in more than a dozen cities, saying that despite his promises, the president was continuing to deport immigrants like them.

    Wasn’t there another case (about 2-3 months ago) where folks started to protest outside Obama HQ and the Administration yielded ?

    I sense a trend .. or perhaps an opportunity.

    Yes ChicagoJohn, the MSM is nothing more than mouthpieces for those who live on the left. There is no concern for contradiction or no sense of honor amoung these who only take dictation. Investigative journalism is a rare bird who we only see on occasion, and mostly from those who have killed their own careers due to their impartiality. In order to be promoted, you must tow the party line, and that cannot be found on the right side of things…. politically speaking. – Lorica

    I am getting wistful remembering the good ol’ days at hotel Crawford…. Cindy Sheehan leading us in sit ins and sing-a-longs…. “those were the days”… LOL :o) – Lorica

    This is the guy who “evolves” and has “composite” profiles to reality and singular issues. He votes “present” in the senate and leads on decisions like taking out bin Laden by having an aide draft a CYA memo, just in case.

    He honestly thinks he can twist his relative thinking and position within any timeframe to suit his current circumstance and the people will shrug it off.

    Unfortunately, too many people do.
    Why anyone with common sense both in logic and just plain judgement of character would vote for this man is simply beyond me. It’s just sad that a group of voters are that stubborn that they would (even excluding politics) keep a lying asshole like this in office.
