All Obama does is lie, and his clueless supporters continue too blindly make excuses for it. Absolutely pathetic.

This is the final nail in the coffin of Obama's FAILED legacy.

Next up race riots in Missouri exacerbated by idiot Holder's meddling.

Whooptee-doo. You just proved the point that this EO has nothing to do with what the people want or what's good for the country and everything to do with POLITICS.

It's irrational to criticize a politician for using politics.The GOP has to put up or walk away. Like the old cartoon used to say " don't walk away mad, just walk away" They could of course make like he did nothing, which is what he essentially did, and proceeded to go to work on something substantive. If you say we don't need an immigration bill, why are they so consumed with an EO that has no teeth? I'm beginning to think they were elected by people who are consumed with hate for something or someone so they have to pretend like they are fighting something or someone instead of passing bills.

You can call it what you want;but in the end its Oking people breaking the entry laws and cheating; nothing more. The first encourage more law breaking and cheats ;the temporary so called dream ok sent thousands of children scrambling for the border encouraged by their parents .That last is pure crazy.Done by a president who can't take the consequences of a election ;in his own words.

Apparently immigration reform was not Obama's priority in the first two years of his presidency. Instead, it was all about Obamacare.

We won't need to cut any "deals" with Democrats. We have the power now (and the numbers). We'll be using the same techniques they used, and you can bet we'll be happy to have that "nuclear option" that Harry Reid gave us.

Lastly, there is no "working with" Democrats, because they are deceitful liars, and they'll say one thing and do another. We should not even attempt to compromise our agenda by giving them even an inch on anything.

They made their bed. Now they can sleep in it.

Lastly, Jay Sekulow of ACLJ was just on Cavuto, and explained very clearly why what Obama is doing is not only outside his authority as President, but is unconstitutional, and therefore, illegal. Also explained why it was different than what either Reagan and Bush had done (which had the backing of existing law). Obama, he pointed out, is making his own law. Too bad you weren't watching [Fox]. But I doubt you would have understood it, since you apparently belong to the class which were the subject of Gruber's ridicule.

Exactly, and think Obama likes this. We will become a third world, and think this was Obama's agenda all along. Care about most Americans, I think not.

I really do not think he cares one iota. He only cares about himself and his party.

Obama violating federal law is not a "smoke screen." It's illegal. Period. The president doesn't have the authority to violate federal law, at will.

You will be hard pressed to find very many reputable sources to prove that he is doing something other than what is allowed and what is available to every other president before him.

Other presidents didn't issue EOs that violated federal law.
