Now What?

by Michael Walsh

In the wake of yet more rule-by-fiat from the Emperor Hussein, I look forward to the inevitable impotent fulmination from Boehner, McConnell and other GOP stalwarts — Orrin Hatch must be around here somewhere — who are finally figuring out the true nature of this administration. Not that they’re going to do anything about it, of course. Instead, they’re probably thumbing through their copies of Gibbon, seeking guidance about how best to manage decline and fall.

Everything Obama does in his first term has always been meant to serve two purposes. The first is to soften up and undermine the nation’s basic institutions, including the Constitution itself; the second is to get himself reelected. He tested the waters earlier with his “recess” appointments and now, with the imposition of a form of the DREAM act, is openly mocking the Congress. It would be funny if it weren’t so tragic, and tragic if it weren’t so funny.

As for a second term, the outlines are becoming ever clearer. We can’t say we haven’t been warned.
