First, there is this needless immigration reform via executive action. He is clearly seeking to me more divisive than ever and hoping somehow to come out on top rather than work with congress on real, actionable change.
I realize this issue continually fails to get traction and the list of reasons is pretty unsearchable. But if he were sincere about real change, he certainly would work with congress rather than compare penis size as he is choosing to do.
I think his ‘conciliatory’ speech on Nov. 5 was telling and it’s like nobody really paid attention to what he was saying. What he said in short was, ‘I don’t give a fuck who won, I am going to do what I want anyway’ and congress can go along or suck his dick.
“What stands out to me, though, is that the American people sent a message, one that theyâ??ve sent for several elections now. They expect the people they elect to work as hard as they do.” <- No dumbass we hate your policies.
“So, to everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too.” <- This one is particularly telling to me. As if not voting is a way of making your voice heard. What he is really saying is that the supposed “voice” of the non-voters are the silent majority who obviously agrees with him and everything he is doing. You don’t speak to the “voice” of those who didn’t say anything because they didn’t say anything. They had the opportunity to be heard and chose not to. In other words he has no intention of working with congress or listening to the actual voices of those who screamed to be heard with their resounding vote against him. Some how he just refuses to believe he is an unpopular president with unpopular policies. It is why, I suppose, he still considers ‘climate change’ a bigger issue than the rising tide of terrorism and the specter of its consequences in the world. I am afraid the only thing that will change his mind is a large mass of dead bodies on American soil.
Those are a couple of things I noticed. In other words where his predecessors at least tried to work with an opposing congress, this guy has no intention. The executive order on immigration is just the beginning of his ‘fuck you’ to congress and the people. I expect an unprecedented amount of executive orders the next to years. Hopefully congress will defund them.
