Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Senate Republican Leader, was one limp wrist today when he took questions from Fox News’ Martha McCallum about Obama’s Senate run-around with his new immigration Executive Order. McCallum wanted to know what Congress would and could do about Obama’s latest lawlessness – allowing 800,000 illegals to become legal. McConnell indicated “legislative action” was necessary. He further explained “legislative action” results in “bipartisan discussion.” No. He really did. That’s what he said.
“Well, one thing — we thing it ought to require legislative action,” McConnell told Fox News anchor Martha McCallum. “The way you get these things done is to have a bipartisan discussion.”
McCallum persisted: “But if the White House has gone around Congress in a way that is not above-board, is Congress going to hold the White House’s feet to the fire on this and force them to go through Congress, is my question.”
“Well, that would require court action, I assume,” Sen. Mitch McConnell told Fox News on Monday. “But yeah, I think we’re pretty unhappy with the fact that they have now decided to do something they claimed they couldn’t legally do a year ago.” Source.
That sage, McConnell, also said Obama’s mandatory order “raises quite a suspicion” that it’s all about Hispanic votes in November. With such critical thinking and analysis skills, he must surely be the best we have for Republican leadership in the Upper Chamber. God help us.
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has announced he will sue the administration for this action which will allow any illegal brought to the U.S. at 16 years of age or younger, currently no older than 30, a U.S. High School graduate or person with U.S. Military service, to stay legally in the U.S.
Wouldn’t it make a huge statement for every responsible member of the House and Senate to stand with King and join his suit? Wouldn’t it send a clear message for Representatives and Senators to stand on the floor of their respective Chambers and say: “No You Cannot! No You Will Not!”
If you heard O’Reilly’s “Memo” tonight, you heard him say he believes Obama’s actions are against the law and unconstitutional. At the same time, he said those brought here by their parents are innocent victims and many believe something must be done to legitimize their life in the U.S. Not once did he mention that those same parents who victimized their own children, victimized mine as well, and they knew exactly what they were doing, when they did it.
