Outrageous Statement of the Day

Lou Dobbs tells Steve Doocy that Obama is going to start ruling "by fiat" because "this has been too complicated, this democracy thing." This is just one of those disingenuous statements that is all to common in politics. Most everybody supports a President doing things by Executive Order or "fiat" as long as it is something they agree with. Some pro-lifers have been arguing for years that abortion could be eliminated by and Executive Order defining personhood. If Obama issued an Executive Order to build a wall 20 feet tall along the entire Mexican border, I doubt Dobbs would be complaining. Ahhhhhh politics. It's good to be Catholic and therefore able to think in a distinct way about these things.
