This week, you gave a beautiful speech to the American people. And let me be clear: When I say the American people, I mean all legal citizens of the United States, regardless of their birth country. The speech was full of love and emotion. It would have been brilliant if you hadn’t delivered it while holding a gun to the country’s head.
What you actually said to the citizens of this great nation is that you are the imperial king, and you don’t care what we, the people, want. The action you are taking amounts to amnesty without the consent of our legally elected representatives in Congress, while claiming it’s for all the right reasons. After all, who would want to tear apart families?
Unfortunately, Mr. President, I don’t believe your intentions are sincere. You have taken action prior to the new Congress being sworn in. You fail to mention that you had two years to get whatever you wanted from Congress, and you didn’t act. You waited until after the midterm elections because you knew how unpopular it would be.
Mr. President, you talk about the House not allowing a simple yes or no vote, but you say nary a word about your commandant, Harry Reid, who wouldn’t allow any votes in the Senate that would put you on the hot seat. Votes on important issues like the Keystone Pipeline, for instance. Your speech was disingenuous, but you know that the majority of Americans are unaware of the truth. Like your friend, Jonathan Gruber, you believe the American voter is stupid and that they won’t get it.
However, there are those of us who will fight for this nation. There are citizens who will fight for our Constitution, those who won’t lie down any longer. This is where the line is drawn, Mr. President. You have usurped the law of the land too many times.
You, in fact, have said many times that you could not legally act in this manner because you are not an emperor. So what changed? Are you the emperor now?
Most disappointing is that you slapped legal immigrants in the face. You looked in the eyes of all those who followed the law and did things the right way, and you called them suckers.
You sold out your nation for political gain and to provoke Republicans into committing hara-kiri. It was done for all the wrong reasons, and you sold it to the American people as a noble action. Mr. President, you ought to be ashamed of yourself, but, unfortunately, you don’t have enough integrity to feel shame.
