We’ll get to immigration. See, I Told You So! Big! I told you Obama wasn’t going to do it. I told you he wasn’t going to do executive amnesty before the election because he couldn’t find a way to blame it on the Republicans. I’ll play you the audio sound bite just to remind you, but he could have done this the first two years of his Regime. He could have done this the first two years, when he had Democrats running the House and Democrats running the Senate.
He could not be stopped on anything by the Republicans, and he didn’t do it then, did he? “Well, he had health care, Rush. He had a number of other objectives.” No, no, no. He promised the Hispanics. He promised Luis Gutierrez. He promised La Raza. He promised all these people, and he didn’t do it, did he?
He’s been tempting and he’s been threatening and he’s been assuring. I mean, Luis Gutierrez is fit to be tied! Luis Gutierrez, Chicago Democrat, was running around the week before last setting it up. “Oh, yeah, it’s gonna be big! It’s gonna be exciting. We’re putting systems in place now to be able to handle all the people that we’re gonna drag out of the shadows,” and blah, blah, blah.
And he didn’t do it! And do you know why he didn’t do it? To spare Democrats a disaster in the elections in November, because it’s not something the majority of Americans are for, and he couldn’t find a way to blame Republicans for it, and he couldn’t tease or taunt the Republicans into either impeaching him or threatening to shut down the government.
So his efforts to get the Republicans’ fingerprints on it failed and so he had to pull back. Now he’s gonna do it after the election. He’s gonna do it after the election, theoretically when the Democrats can’t be hurt by it. (interruption) As long as there’s a big border swarm, or what have you. But we’ll see.
