Charles Krauthammer Charges Obama With 'Constitutional Indecency'

“Beyond the pandering and the politics and the process, it's constitutional indecency. This is out and out lawlessness. You had a clip of a president himself saying months ago "I cannot do this on my own because there are laws on the books." I have news for president - the laws remain on the books. They haven't changed. He proposed the DREAM act of which the executive order is a variation. He proposed a DREAM act. The Congress said no. The Congress is the one who makes the laws. What the administration does is administer the law. In fact what it's pretending to do is use discretion. That's what the homeland security said. This is not discretion. That's when you treat it on a one-by-one basis on extenuating circumstances. This is declaration of a new set of criteria which is essentially resurrecting legislation that the Congress has said no to. This is not how you run a constitutional republic. This should be in hands of Congress. It's end run. What is ironic is for eight years the Democrats have been screaming about the imperil president, the nonsense about the unitary executive. This is out and out lawlessness, not how you govern.”
