Reader Email: ‘Does this look like someone who feels there is ‘finally a chance to rescue our nation from six years’ of Obama? (Uh, NO)
Readers will agree that the answer is “no.”
From an emailer, responding to a plea for money from Arizona’s senior senator, throwing words contained therein back at him (bolds are mine):
(John) McCain is not the only voice of surrender. Referring to a TEMPORARY stay against the implementation of Obama’s Amnesty Decree that was recently issued by a federal judge, Senator Jeff Flake proclaimed: “Why don’t we just… declare victory and move on?”
Senator Lindsey Graham chimed in: “When the judge ruled, that was the way I wanted to end it.”
And Congressman Peter King went so far as to say that people who actually value the Constitution and who do NOT want Obama’s Unconstitutional Amnesty Decree funded are “absolutely irresponsible” and “have no concept of reality.”
McCain, Flake, Graham and King are advocating what is being called the “escape hatch theory” in Washington. It goes something like this… “Look, the courts have delayed Mr. Obama’s unconstitutional actions for now, so let’s just go ahead and fund those unconstitutional actions… since we really want amnesty to pass anyway… and when the dust clears, we’ll blame the courts for the evisceration of our Constitution.”
You can almost hear them chuckle.
But wait just a minute: Now that a federal judge has placed a temporary hold on Mr. Obama’s unconstitutional decree… is that not a reason why Congress SHOULD NOT fund it? Would logic not dictate that Congress wait for the courts to reach a final decision BEFORE funding Mr. Obama’s lawless amnesty decree?
Sorry gentlemen, but a TEMPORARY stay by a federal judge is not a “victory” and it’s not an excuse or an escape hatch that ALLOWS you to fund Mr. Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty decree. Rather, it’s the reason why you SHOULD NOT fund Mr. Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty decree.
We’re not that stupid, Sens. McCain, Graham and Flake.
As to Rep. King, the “reality” is that you, sir, are the one who is being “irresponsible.”
Speaking of money, isn’t it amazing how the GOP can come up with significant funds almost instantly to attack its own true conservative members but never, ever, ever consistently spends the kind of money needed to go after the Obama administration and the left and around the press?
