    This is what our flip flopping, liar-in-chief had to say about executive orders:

    “I taught constitutional law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that were facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.” Obama, 2008

    "With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed — and I know that everybody here at Bell is studying hard so you know that we’ve got three branches of government. Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws." Obama, 2011

    MSNBC host, Chris Matthews asked why Republicans in the House rejected the Senate bill on immigration. It's a stupid question because he should know House Republicans by now. The Senate bill gave the president discretion in enforcement; who in their right mind would trust this President to keep his word on anything? Reagan was similarly promised border security for his support of amnesty; that border security never materialized. Never, ever trust a Democrat politician; they're liars.
    Senator Rand Paul is alive because of modern medicine and because his attacker punches like a girl.

    Most anti-immigration arguments are bullshit. 99% of Americans are immigrants. The rest are native Americans, your ancestors killed most of them.

    For the sake of the rest of your post (which was good), don't go here.


    Taking a concept to it's logical end is rarely logical or relevant to the subject at hand.

    All executive orders are not equal.
    Quantity doesn't equal quality.
    A president could make a thousand constitutional executive orders and I wouldn't care.

    If you want, though, I'll gladly concede that Franklin D. Roosevelt was a worst president than Obama.

    I'm not a liberal, and I'm not a fan of Obama, but I do support full open borders immigration-- and I honestly don't understand why people get so up in arms over the idea. People want to come to america and work. Why prevent them? They work hard, they appreciate being here, and they're usually really down to earth. I propose we start kicking some of the unappreciative entitled american asshats out to make room.

    The trouble with america is that it's full of americans.

    Because they're closet racists and it's easy to blame outsiders for their problems.

    Completely different order of magnitude. Obama has told more lies than every president before him combined if we exclude Clinton (another big liar).

    There are several reasons why an open border is a terrible idea. There are people around the world who hate us and mean to do us harm. There are people around the world with diseases who are unvaccinated. Over 50% of the immigrants who enter illegally end up on government aid of some sort. Taxpayers have to spend money to educate these children. Taxpayers have to pay for their hospital bills.

    I'm a Republican and I oppose illegal immigration because 70% of them (when they become naturalized) end up voting for destructive Democrat policies. Also, these people are fleeing from economic situations that they've voted for and supported. Why would I want millions of socialists crossing the border when they've already destroyed their own nation? They should stay and fix their own nation.

    If true, Obama apparently does not represent all 'Democrat politicians'. Could it be your initial claim was hyperbolic? Could you, in fact, be biased?
