Almost two years ago, Obama expressed his frustration with his lack of power to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.
(Let's keep in mind what the term "illegal" means. It means people have come into to our country in violation of our laws. They are lawbreakers. They are here illegally. Yes, we are a nation of immigrants, but not a nation of ILLEGAL immigrants.)
Flashback, February 2013:
Poor Obama. He has a problem that he's struggled with for years.Flashback, March 2013:
He's not the EMPEROR OF THE UNITED STATES!
From the Weekly Standard:
OBAMA: This is something that I've struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is, is that, um, you know, I'm the president of the United States, I'm not, uh, the emperor of the United States. Uh, my job is to execute laws that are passed.That's quite a problem.
If only Obama were free to dictate as he pleases, instead of being bound by the Constitution.
A couple of weeks ago, Obama informed the American public that he's not the "emperor of the United States."Katie Pavlich cites 22 times that Obama declared he did not have the authority for executive amnesty.
He cited that fact as a problem....
Poor guy. He says he has to struggle with that, not being emperor.
Today, Obama points out that he's not a dictator.
On several occasions, he's acted like one, ignoring the Constitution, stripping Americans of our rights. He's circumvented Congress. He declared the Senate to be in recess, completely disregarding the separation of powers.
Sometimes, Obama is a dictator. He just says he's not.
This could be Obama's "I am not a crook" moment.
OBAMA: I am not a dictator. I'm the president.Obama doth protest too much, methinks.
Apparently, whatever concerns Obama had in the past about his power no longer trouble him. He's decided he is the "emperor of the United States." He's decided that he is a dictator.
What he once considered a problem doesn't exist in his mind anymore.
As Mark Levin says, Obama shouldn't be called the president if he's going to act outside the powers of the presidency.
"Benito Obama" fits.
Obama doesn't need no stinking Constitution!
