And whatever gripe the heckler has, it just happens to be an issue that Obama would love to address.
The fact is, Obama has more ‘plants’ in his audience than Michelle has in her garden.
This is the oldest gimmick in the book for dictators. Want to prattle on about some issue but raising the issue yourself would make you look foolish? Then plant some tool in the audience who forces you to address the issue (supposedly against your will).
In this case it’s immigration and Obama’s dictatorial power to make law by executive decree.
After being heckled Monday while delivering a speech on immigration reform in San Francisco, President Obama said he would solve the issue without going through Congress, if only he could.
“I need your help,” a young man standing a few rows behind the president shouted. “You have a power to stop deportations for all.” Some in the audience chanted with him, “Stop deportation. Yes we can.”
Obama told security to let the young man stay, then responded to the outburst.
“ If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so.”
Read the rest:
Oh please Obama, who are you kidding? You’ve halted deportations and border enforcement with a stroke of the pen before. Just recently we’ve witnessed how easily you postponed facets of ObamaCare when they became politically inconvenient as well as handing out waivers to unions, none of which is in your authority to do…that is, if the rule of law be sacrosanct.
This issue of Obama waving his imperial wand and granting amnesty has come up before. If he could he would or so he says. The obvious truth is, he really doesn’t want to. He’d rather lay the blame on the Republican congress.
He just has to keep reminding his illegal alien constituents, so he employs these phony hecklers to give him the opportunity to broach the subject without looking like it was his idea to bring it up.
His illegal alien comrades need not worry. They’ll get their amnesty, the fix is in. But only after El Presidente Obama has wrung every last drop of political opportunism out of it.
If he can get the ‘Weeper of the House’ John Boehner to fold like he has so many times before, Obama will take credit for it. If not, in the end Obama will find some cockeyed interpretation of his executive power to grant amnesty by decree.
The only question is whether he does it in time for the 2014 election or 2016. Perhaps he’ll abandon the usual time table if he needs a major distraction. But it will happen.
Update: Turns out this heckler was indeed an illegal alien, a South Korean who over stayed his visa named Ju Hong. As for how he got so close to Obama, he was a ‘special guest’ of the President. Read more about him:
