Obama: ‘I Just Took An Action To Change The Law’

Font Size:

The great thing about Obama’s TelePrompter is that when he stops reading from it, he slips up and tells the truth.

Daniel Halper:

The White House has argued that President Obama’s executive amnesty order last week was made well within the existing law. But in remarks in Chicago tonight, President Obama went off script and admitted that in fact he unilaterally made changes to the law.

President Obama made the admission after getting heckled for several minutes by immigration protesters.

“Now, you’re absolutely right that there have been significant numbers of deportations. That’s true. But what you are not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law.”

And then the applause. Which is the whole point.

The President of the United States doesn’t get to make his own laws, unless he feels like it. What are you gonna do about it, teabagger?

Obama is right about one thing: It makes no sense to yell at him for sticking to his sworn oath to preserve, protect, and defend the United States Constitution. He hasn’t, he isn’t, and he never will.

Note that he just paid more attention to some woman yelling at him during a speech than to the millions of people who voted on Nov. 4. He has his priorities, and the will of the people is irrelevant.
