Time for a reality check. Conservatives are up in arms about Obama’s proposal to effectively legalize millions of illegal immigrants through executive action, despite his party’s overwhelming losses in this year’s midterms. However, a quick search of the New York Times archives has exposed them for the hypocrites they are. Reprinted with permission.
President Obama hasn’t always been in favor of voter suppression, but recent statements suggest his position has changed.
For example, White House press secretary Josh Earnest recently said that, despite the Democratic Party’s shellacking in the midterms, the president was “looking forward” to taking executive action to address illegal immigration. Never mind that many Republican candidates ran in explicit opposition to these proposed actions. “I’m pretty sure I’ll take some actions that some in Congress will not like,” Obama said during a press conference last week.
This year’s midterm elections produced a number of winners and losers. Among the losers we can count the likes of Hillary Clinton, Tom Steyer, Sandra Fluke, Wendy Davis, Ron Paul, Barack Obama (obviously), Harry Reid, and other enemies of freedom. Winners include: America, Mitch McConnell, moral progress, and, above all, the Koch brothers.
The Republican wave was a crucial step on the road to Kochtopia, which would be like heaven on earth for pot smokers, gay marriage advocates, bald eagles enthusiasts, art lovers, people who like hospitals and equality in education, and those who love America.
