    2. It's called "prosecutorial discretion".

    Hers the thing. I think he knew...maybe even planned on democrats getting shellacked this year. Perfect for him. Now, he can blame every obstacle, block, and failing, on the GOP in the house and senate. Even the promised amnesty will be blamed on the GOP, both when he attempts it and when it is deemed unconstitutional. The president cannot grant citizenship.
    I think you are assuming he will consider himself to be bound by such a little thing as the law.

Same thing is happening to the White countries in Europe

    I'm going to guess the leaders in the Democratic Party are going to find a way to stop him from being petty and petulant. He will only damage the party even more than he has, and we all know they are already looking at 2016, as they should be.
    Who? Obama isn't running again - he's not dependent on anyone.

    Sure. And just because we say "entitlement reform" doesn't mean that because we are having the CATO institute do it that it's going to necessarily involve privatization......


    .....but yeah, that's pretty much what it means.







    And now he's insisting that it happens in 6 weeks, or he's just going to change the laws unilaterally. Because he's not willing to work with the congress that got elected. Since when does the Executive get to tell the Legislative how long they have to pass legislation?


    Wow. I'll admit, I'm a bit surprised by the gall of that. Even for him, that's... damn.


    What a narcissistic dick.

    Thats why God made the Supreme Court...

    He can write whatever EOs he wants. Doesnt mean they are enforceable. I think he is counting on chaos.
