The President Who Would Be King

A nobleman went off to a distant country to obtain the kingship for himself and then to return. His fellow citizens, however, despised him and sent a delegation after him to announce, “We do not want this man to be our king.” But when he returned after obtaining the kingship … [He said] “Now as for those enemies of mine who did not want me as their king, bring them here and slay them before me” (Luke 19:12,14, 27-28).

Despite the fact that the Democrats were lost on a large scale in the last election, President Obama has decided to take his "pen" and RULE by Executive Order.  
Once upon a time his highness said:  I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed. we’ve got three branches of government. Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws.
There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President.  I’m not a king. I am the head of the executive branch of government. I’m required to follow the law.
It appears that all that gobble-de-gook about following the law is now out the window.
Obama has invited senior lawmakers to the White House for dinner Wednesday night so that he can explain his plans to use executive authority to change the nation’s immigration laws.
His Majesty invited Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the leaders of the congressional Asian, Black and Hispanic caucuses, but did not invite Republican leaders to  the meeting.
The Emperor's immigration order would provide illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress has repeatedly rejected:  Social Security numbers, photo IDs and work permits--which will allow them to legally compete for the scarce number of jobs in this failing economy with Americans allowing him to fiddle while the US economy burns.
Then again King Obama sees all of us peasants as STUPID AMERICANS.  Just ask Gruber he'll tell you.
