Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham believes President Obama’s impending executive action giving work permits and deportation deferments to illegal immigrants exhibits “the closest thing I have ever seen” to a “soft dictatorship.” Ingraham made the comments Thursday morning on her radio show.
Ingraham: “Obama’s begging you to impeach him. At this point, that would be the only thing that would rescue Obama is an impeachment proceeding. But I’ll tell you what you can do: you can pass a short term spending initiative… the number one power you get to exercise is the power of the purse.”
“Obama is daring you to do a few things: ‘Impeach me, come on, come on, impeach me. Try. Get all those people hopped up to impeach me.’ And he’s also begging you to compromise– go to his position– because he knows that when you go closer to his position you are going to completely demoralize your base and you won’t get any additional Latino support. so you’re going to both tick off the people that you desperately need to turn out for you in 2016 — white working class voters, women, minorities who deserve a break who, frankly, have gotten shafted by the false promises of the Democrat Party. He needs you to demoralize the people you that you need to turn out and he wants you to think that somehow you get in this bidding war with him with the Latinos or illegal immigrants — that somehow there’ll be a mad rush of support for Republicans among these illegal immigrants and their family members who are legally here. But we know that’s no the case — you never outbid these people when it comes to distributing benefits…”
“Memo to the Republicans: You must resist homegrown tyranny. This is the closest thing I have ever seen in my lifetime to soft dictatorship.”
