  • President Obama's Executive Amnesty -- Not so Fast

    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

    Not accurate: The CoA voted, as a procedural issue, not to allow DAPA to go forward before it makes its ruling on the merits later this month.

    But Heaven help 'em, Conservatives trying to win these victories through the courts are learning (or simply suffering) the consequences of riding roughshod over millions of voters. A favorable ruling in King v. Burwell is already shaping up to be a nightmare scenario for Republicans and SCOTUS overruling DAPA will prove the same ... right before the 2016 elections, making it really difficult for the GOP to turn this around:

        I was referring to Abbott's tweet but should have made that clear.

              I bet guys like you think that Obama's use of his phone and his pen to circumvent (or create) law is running roughshod over the constitution!
