RUSH: Now, here at TheHill.com: “Democrats: No bluff, Obama Will Go it Alone on Immigration.” So we had Josh Earnest, who told F. Chuck Todd (imitating Earnest), “Look, we’re not gonna sit around and wait for Congress to write a bunch of laws. If they don’t do it, we’re gonna do it ourselves.”
And now from TheHill.com: “The Obama administration is ‘not bluffing’ in its intent to take executive action on immigration policy if House Republicans don’t act soon, top Democratic leaders warned Thursday. … ‘We’re at the end of the line,’ Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. ‘We’re not bluffing by setting a legislative deadline for them to act. Their first job is to govern, and in the absence of governing, then you see executive actions.’ Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) piled on. … ‘I don’t know how much more time he thinks he needs, but I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today. And if he does not, the president will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration.'”
Borrow the power that is needed. So Obama is gonna borrow the power that the House Republicans have, he’s going to use it, and then, what, give it back? (imitating Obama) “By the way, John, here’s your power back. I used it, uh, for amnesty, and we got it done, and now I’m giving your power back.” Is that how it works? Listen to these arrogant people urging the president of the United States to just go over their heads, too, even though they have passed a bill. Look how eager they are for the executive. This is just further evidence they’re all-in for statism. They’re all-in for this kind of authoritarian pretend dictatorial kind of power.
Folks, there really needs to be some serious push-back against these consistent threats because that’s all these people are doing is threatening every other day. Some of these people need to be put on notice that there will be impeachment proceedings of some of these underlings if this kind of wanton disregard for the Constitution continues. And Obama should be put on notice, too, you don’t want to go there. You do not want to just do immigration reform with an executive order that is not gonna stand. But nobody’s saying that.
