Obama once said “I am not a dictator”, but that left the title of “king” open for grabs and all he needs now is a crown. He distances himself from all mistakes and negativity like a king, lies like a king, and makes and breaks the law like a king. Furthermore, his staff, supporters, and the media refuse (fear?) to tell him he wears no pants and treat his rhetoric as royal fiat.
Obama’s latest royal fiat granting amnesty to illegal aliens falls right in line with his disrespect for the law and the Constitution, his disgust with this country, and his intent to “transform” America to match his personal views. If you’re surprised by this action you had your head in the sand for the past 6 years.
The reason given for this executive order is basically because he’s tired of waiting for Congress to do what he wants them to do. That is one of the best examples of egotistical arrogance one can find. Unabashedly announcing that he would wait until after the mid-term elections to do this was another example of arrogance and it was the only “transparency” from his White House we have seen.
He is on a kingly ego trip many still refuse to see but one that will certainly end up as a subject for historians. His speeches are heavily laden with “I” and “me” regardless of the circumstances. All wrongs are blamed on evil Republicans or FOX News and he ignores military and other expert advice if it doesn’t fit his preconceived, personal agenda.
President Nixon was accused of acting like a king, raked over the coals, and driven out of office for far less arrogance. President George W. Bush was demeaned and accused of “going it alone” by a liberal media now applauding Obama for sidestepping Congress and “going it alone”. The hypocrisy here is pathetic as it will be again when a future Republican president follows this precedent.
Obama has “transformed” himself into a king and far too many people have their heads stuck in an idealistic cloud to see the danger. We will be dealing with the unintended consequences for a long, long time.
