I Only Call Him a Doofus

Jonah Goldberg calls Obama a troll!

He’s right, of course. In a typically brilliant and insightful column, Goldberg says that Obama is “trolling Republicans” with his unilateral — and illegal — act to document undocumented aliens.

In so doing, he also manages to eviscerate the idea that what Obama did was legal, all while laying bare Obama’s true motives: (1) goad Republicans into over-reacting, and (2) make Hispanics permanent, dependent, members of the Democrat Party coalition.

Here are some illustrative passages:

I don’t like the president’s executive action on immigration. I think it’s constitutionally dubious — for exactly the reasons Obama has insisted more than 20 times in the past. “I’m not a king. My job as the head of the executive branch ultimately is to carry out the law,” Obama told Telemundo in 2013. “When it comes to enforcement of our immigration laws, we’ve got some discretion. We can prioritize what we do. But we can’t simply ignore the law.”

If all King Obama was doing was opting not to deport some immigrants here illegally, he’d be on safer ground. But his new proposal would allow an estimated 3.5 million “undocumented Americans” to get all sorts of documents — Social Security numbers, work permits, drivers licenses, etc. That’s not prosecutorial discretion, that’s a rewrite of existing law.

Needless to say, for the President to make, write, or re-write law is completely illegal, and a naked menace to our democratic form of government, based as it is, on the clear enumeration and separation of powers.

With the arrival in early January of a new Republican Congress — both the Senate and the House of Representatives — we will enter a new period of serious constitutional crisis. Obama has been usurping power for his entire term, and the one man who has allowed that to happen is Harry “Obama’s Lapdog” Reid. The criminality of which Harry Reid is guilty, for allowing Obama to be credibly accused of trying to be King Obama, is breathtaking.

Goldberg doesn’t mention Reid in his column, but he’s aware of Reid’s perfidy. When historians write the post mortem of the chaotic, rudderless, pernicious Obama Administration, Reid will go down in history as one of America’s great villains. Up there with Benedict Arnold.

Quick Prediction: After Obama, there will be at least a brief, if not longer than brief, period of “re-construction” or “re-alignment,” as Congress and the Presidency struggle to re-implement a normal power relationship after the Obama-Reid disease.

In the meantime, Barack Obama’s efforts have well earned for himself several dubious titles: (1) King, (2) Troll, and, of course: (3) doofus.
