Obama and the Election

Before the election everyone heard the following line from the President, Barack Obama.

“I am not on the ballot this fall,” said Obama. “Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”

Well Americans went to vote and voted against the democrats, and Obama’s own admission, his policies.  It appeared the more Obama pushed that he was, if not directly, indirectly on the ballot this election, the further behind democrats got.

In fact less than 24 hours after he said that many Republican campaigns used it against their democrat opponents. 

Now that the election is over the President is saying something different.  “To everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you,” Obama said.

If he truly hears what this country has to say then he has to take a hard look at his policies, including amnesty for illegals.  He has already said what he is thinking about doing.

“The best way, if folks are serious about getting immigration reform done, is going ahead and passing a bill and getting it to my desk. And then the executive actions that I take go away,” Obama said.

So much for wanting to work with Republicans.

The question is, where in the Constitution is he granted such powers to make so many people citizens?  It would be a power overreach, and he knows and understands it.  Its possible that he even hopes to push Republicans to impeach him over such an action.

What Obama doesn’t seem to realize, and what many ‘average’ citizens understand, is amnesty won’t solve the problem.
