American Thinker: Obama and the five million illegals


In the aftermath of President Barack Obama’s address to the nation on Thursday evening regarding executive orders granting what amounts to amnesty for five million illegal immigrants, and prior to his signing those orders, news stories came out with headlines to the effect of “What we know so far.”

The sad fact is, nobody (outside President Obama himself, and possibly Valerie Jarrett) can ever “know” what Obama will do.

With regard to all the hubbub on Obama’s immigration “plan” as outlined by the “executive orders” he signed on Friday, allow me to invoke the venerable Steve Martin with his observations/reservations about cats: “Do you trust ’em?”

Even though some may agree with the supposed substance of what those executive orders entail, is there anything in Obama’s history of governance that suggests he is a man of his word – that he will stick to what he said in his address to America on Thursday evening, or to the letter of what those executive orders entail?

My point is, if President Obama gets his way, can you trust him to keep to the tenets of the “agreement”?

Harken back to the phrases, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.  Period.” and “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.  Period.”
