On immigration, a tale of two presidents
When George W. Bush couldn't get an immigration overhaul though the Senate, he gave up. When Barack Obama couldn't get a bill through the House, he changed the rules.Yeah, that's it. Bush just "gave up" whereas brave
Rewriting the immigration system was at the core of Bush's "compassionate conservatism" political brand and was dear to his heart.
Right. Pull the other one, it's got bells on it.
Congress isn't "refusing to act" - they're refusing to pass your ridiculous amnesty. They're doing it for a very specific reason - their constituency is telling them to do this. What proof do we have? Oh, I'd say a historic drubbing that returned the Senate to the GOP, heightened the GOP lead in the House, and turned a number of Governor's mansions - including MASSACHUSETTS, ILLINOIS, and MARYLAND - over to the GOP.
By any metric you'd care to use, the midterm elections of 2014 were a clear message: the party in charge - and make no mistake, with the White House and Senate, the Democrats were clearly in charge - wasn't getting things done to the satisfaction of the American people. So how does Barack Obama respond? He goes against all conventional wisdom and the express wishes of the party coming into power.
Yeah, that's a sign of a good leader, ignoring everything that doesn't fit into your narrow view. He's a visionary, at least according to CNN, who I'm surprised could take the kneepads off long enough to write this insane puff piece. Any wonder why people consider journalists to be slightly less trustworthy than used car salesmen or amoebas?
Apologies to amoebas; to my knowledge they have never intentionally shilled for an imperial doofus like Teleprompter Jesus.
That is all.
