Above The Post Update!!!!!
If Obama does not make his proclamation in front of his Greek columns from 2009 (or at least Caesar’s Palace), he’s a pussy.
Now, back to me being an unhelpful asshole!
Man oh man do they think we’re stupid.
Considering who we keep electing, it’s hard to argue against that.
Case in point.
Quoth Byron York
Then in January, with the GOP in control — and, presumably, Obama’s edict in hand — Republicans will work on crafting a new spending measure that funds the entire government, with the exception of the particular federal offices that will do the specific work of enforcing Obama’s order.
Yeah, that’s gonna be Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
A couple months after they’ve been legalized the GOP is going to make sure they can’t legalize….uhhhh… the people who’ve already been legalized.
But THEY’RE DOING SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Of course, even if they do actually try to do something useful (I’d bet against that), Obama will veto it and shut down the gov’t and the GOP will accept blame (as declared by Dems and their Minitrue allies).
But even if a move to counter Obama passes the Senate with 60 votes, the president will veto it. At that point, a shutdown battle could occur — but it would be a battle over shutting down the small part of the federal government tasked with enforcing the immigration order.
Yeah, that’s stupid.
They’ll have to have this in the continuing spending resolution they use these days instead of budgets (because CRs don’t have earmarks and other wet kisses to political operatives and hookers), so he’ll veto that and shut down the gov’t.
Of course, it’ll be useless because the GOP are a bunch of feckless assholes who are on Obama’s side on this one and he’s already shown he doesn’t give a shit for laws and Minitrue will be backing him up so the Republicans who might want to do something will be overruled by the “Commen Sense Coalition” of Boehner, McConnell, Graham, McCain etc.
We be boned.

Oh yeah, I mentioned Lyndsey Graham, you know what that means.
Some more shots below the fold.
