FactCheck.org, the respected nonpartisan watchdog organization, busted President Obama for trying to “rewrite history” by claiming his position had not changed on executive immigration power. When asked on November 16 of this year about his previous statements that he could not unilaterally suspend deportations and grant legal status to millions of illegals, for example, “I’m President. I’m not king. I can’t do these things just by myself,” (2010 statement), Obama said: “Well, actually, my position hasn’t changed.”
FactCheck.org cites chapter and verse, showing that Obama had repeatedly and clearly stated that only Congress can make laws, and that the Constitution prevented him from giving the amnesty he now plans to bestow.
