“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Obama's two most damaging XO's

Apparently Obama has given the republicans a rough deadline of Jan 1 to put a comprehensive immigration reform bill on his desk or he's issuing an executive order(XO), effectively granting blanket amnesty to the 11-20 million illegals here, not to mention the millions who'll invade the border in the years after. 

In addition to his I-Don't-Give-A-Shit lame-duck status XO's, DC democrats want him to go ahead and use the XO to increase the federal minimum wage to at least $10.10. 

By law, any future president can rescind an XO from a former president, but I'd wager there isn't a republican in the bunch of contenders that has the guts to take away either from the people after we've lived with them for the better part of two years. 

I don't think Obama cares about criticism in the short term, but he does think that these two executive orders in particular would cement his legacy as the transformational president he wanted to be.
