Obama Is Acting More Like a Despot
Why am I not surprised?
With unfavorable economic winds, polls continuing to slide in favor of his opponent, his various communication strategies failing, and the mainstream media wavering, Obama seems to me to be acting more and more like a despot.
The latest executive order to enforce a revised DREAM Act on immigration gives this “legal immigrant” the impression that our president is desperate to find ways to get votes.
Obama could not pass temporary immigration reforms when he had the control of Congress and won a Nobel Prize, but now, as the election approaches, just like a despot, he uses executive powers to get more votes. Last year, the president said that he could not go against Congress by overriding their consent on immigration, and now he has decided to do it anyway.
I support the DREAM Act, but not done in this way.
First, we need to secure the borders and follow the laws.
A leader should be able to persuade. Obama is showing disdain for our representatives, and the Constitution. He continues to divide us instead of uniting us, while accusing the Republicans of opposing his failed policies that have created an unsustainable deficit based on class envy, or of being racist if they don’t agree with his actions.
Just like he did to sneak Obamacare through the back door, which cost him dearly in the 2010 elections, and his arbitrary order to halt the Canadian pipeline, which even many fellow Democrats wanted.
This president has not kept the most important promises of his campaign (transparency, civility and cooperation), and has polarized our country with his vision of creating a European economic system, which does not work.
He seems like a desperate despot to me.
