How anyone can trust this guy is beyond me. He is backed into a corner at this point and that makes him even more unpredictable. The Gun running investigation, the solar panel blow up, DOJ and NLRB getting looked into and his numbers tanking....hope like hell congress has a watchdog on Obama every second.


(Beltway Confidential) — Facing growing opposition to his economic proposals and dimming prospects that Congress will pass other parts of his agenda, President Obama told a Hispanic group in Washington Wednesday that when it comes to the issue of immigration, “I’d like to work my way around Congress.”

“As I mentioned when I was at La Raza a few weeks back, I wish I had a magic wand and could make this all happen on my own,” Obama told a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. “There are times where — until Nancy Pelosi is speaker again — I’d like to work my way around Congress.”

As he continued, Obama conceded that “we’ve got laws on the books that have to be upheld.” But he quickly added there are different ways to uphold the laws on the books. “You know as well as anyone that . . . how we enforce those laws is also important,” Obama said. Last month, the administration made a major, unilateral change in immigration law enforcement when it announced that the government will not initiate deportation proceedings against illegal immigrants unless they have committed serious crimes. To critics, Obama had indeed worked his way around Congress. To the Hispanic Caucus, Obama said his new policy will “prioritize criminals who endanger our communities, not students trying to achieve the American dream.”

"I’d like to work my way around Congress.”—Well we already knew this. I mean he has been doing this. What president wouldn't like to be able to do this. The whole idea was to check this impulse.

LaRaza is anti-American.

“I’d like to work my way around Congress.”

That must be the "change" part of "hope and change"...
