Obama in Las Vegas: Politics as Usual

The state of Nevada is where President Obama went to campaign for his plan to protect five million “undocumented immigrants” from deportation, addressed from a Las Vegas high school – the audience was mostly Hispanic students. He demanded that Congress pass a bill, but also announced he would enact this plan with executive order. He stated:
I told [Speaker of the House] John Boehner I would—yeah, I’ll wash your car, I’ll walk your dog—whatever you need to do, just call the bill,” Obama said, complaining that House Republicans refused to take up the Senate-passed bipartisan immigration reform bill. “That’s how democracy is supposed to work. And if the votes hadn’t been there, then we would have had to start over, but at least give it a shot. And he didn’t do it. And the fact that a year-and-a-half has gone by means that time has been wasted—and during that time families have been separated, and during that time businesses have been harmed.
The real deal is those children, part of the five million, were sent from Central American countries by their families, alone, knowing that it was illegal, knowing the Obama administration would not deport them and send them away; thus eventually joining their children after the Obama amnesty takes place. "Businesses have been harmed" - really, Mr. President? The federal government has done more harm to businesses than any other reason, and with the amnesty and continued policy of allowing illegal immigrants to remain and work - what about the citizens who do not have jobs?

What the president has done is that if the Congress doesn't pass a bill, his plan will be put in action anyway. This has been the Obama administration's attitude from day one in 2009. He professes to adhere to constitutional law, but his actions prove differently; and despite clear corruption and unethical revelations of scandal, his administration continues with business as usual.
After his speech, the president, of course, went golfing at the elite Shadow Creek golf club in North Las Vegas, his golfing partners being Derek Jeter, Stephen Cloobeck, and Las Vegas Sun owner, Brian Greenspun.
Obama has spent more time on the golf course than in intelligence briefings
Yep, politics as usual for the recreational president. This action has nothing to do with "democracy". It has to do with strengthening the Democrat Party's voting base to ensure that it continues its platform of socialism and corruption of constitutional law. BH Obama knows this being a constitutional law 'expert'. But that is what the new generation of lawyers do - spend more time seeking loopholes and skirting around the law, instead of upholding it.
Will not parliamentary Taxation, if established, raise a revenue unjustly and wrongfully? If this Revenue is scattered by the Hand of Corruption, among the public officers, and magistrates and Rulers, in the Community, will it not propagate Vices more numerous, more malignant and pestilential among them? ... And does not the Example of Vice and Folly, in Magistrates descend and spread downwards among the People?  -- John Adams; Revolutionary Writings, 1755-1775; page 303-304.
