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.
