As we all know by now, when Obama doesn’t get his way, well, he’s willing to do just about anything to remedy that – even if it means shutting down the country indefinitely. That being said, it seems that our president is taking to stomping his feet like a child again explaining that he is, “not just going to sit around and wait,” to write legislation and may evoke executive action.
Obama has been working tirelessly around the clock to gift those that break our nation’s laws with citizenship and he’s getting a bit testy that not everyone feels the same way he does. After all, his actions are politically motivated, and the right is fighting against not only its illegality, but that side of things as well.
As White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest participated in an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, he explained Obama’s frustration with Congress as they’re not simply doing what he wants. He explained:
“[W]e’re not just going to sit around and wait interminably for Congress,” he explained. “We’ve been waiting a year already. The president has tasked his Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson with reviewing what options are available to the president, what is at his disposal using his executive authority to try to address some of the problems that have been created by our broken immigration system.”
He then went on to explain that although it’s not in the immediate future, Obama has been exploring Executive Action should Congress continue to defy him. Sadly for them however, he did go on to admit that such a route would not be, “a substitute for robust Congressional action.”
As Obama continues to whore out our country in pursuit of a secured next generation of Democratic voters, how do you see this playing out if he doesn’t get his way? Will Republicans stand firm on the issue? Let us know in the comments below.
