    Rand Paul On Executive Amnesty: Obama Can’t ‘Defend The Indefensible’ [VIDEO]

    Rand Paul On Executive Amnesty: Obama Can’t ‘Defend The Indefensible’ [video]

    Republican Kentucky Senator Rand Paul told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Tuesday night on “The Kelly File” that he doesn’t understand how anyone could, “with a straight face,” defend President Barack Obama’s reversal on executive amnesty.

    “I don’t even know how you can, with a straight face, defend the indefensible. How do you defend against the president’s actual words twenty times saying he didn’t have the power?” he asked. (RELATED: GOP Senator: Executive Amnesty Would Be ‘Pulling The Pin’ Of A ‘Hand Grenade’ [VIDEO])


    “The president went even so far as to say he’s not a king, he’s not an emperor, that he can’t do this,” Paul noted. “And now we have a complete about face and everyone’s going to say, ‘Oh, well, the president changed his mind.’”

    Washington Post Fact Checker: Obama Flip-Flopped On Executive Amnesty

    Daily Caller
    11/18/2014

    VIDEO

    Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler ruled on Barack Obama’s recent claim that his “position hasn’t changed” on executive amnesty, calling it a clear flip-flop.

    In the lead-up to Obama’s planned executive amnesty, observers have pointed out that on previous occasions, Obama claimed he lacked the authority to do so. “I am president, I am not king,” he once told Univision, back in 2010. “I can’t do these things just by myself.”

    But Obama said last week in Australia that in those instances, he was talking about something else entirely. “When I was talking to the advocates, their interest was in me, through executive action, duplicating the legislation that was stalled in Congress,” Obama explained, “And getting a comprehensive deal of the sort that is in the Senate legislation, for example, does extend beyond my legal authorities.”

    Not true, says Kessler. He points out that on no less than four occasions, President Obama was asked only about halting the deportation of illegal immigrants. In all four occasions, and as late as 2013, Obama claimed it was beyond his power to do so.

    “The president has certainly been consistent on this issue — until he saw that the path through Congress was blocked,” Kessler concludes. “It’s clear from the interviews that the president was not being asked about executive orders that would have provided comprehensive immigration reform, but about specific actions that ended deportations of a subset of illegal immigrants — precisely the type of action he will shortly unveil.”

    Obama recieved an” Upside-Down Pinocchio,” which according to the Fact Checker rating scale represents “[a] statement that represents a clear but unacknowledged “flip-flop” from a previously-held position.”

    Hey Rand Paul, Obama believes he can get away with this because you and 14 other GOP Senators support the same path to citizenship for illegals he does! Wise up sellout!
