Unhinged Obama-hater Mychal Massie rants in his June 18 WorldNetDaily column:
Forget for the moment Obama bypassed Congress to arbitrarily grant amnesty to illegal aliens vis-a-vis what amounts to the Dream Act. Forget for the moment that for years he has said that without congressional approval he didn’t have the authority to do precisely what he did today. Forget for the moment that college students and high school seniors have just graduated into an employment market that has lost millions of jobs. Forget for the moment that unemployment amongst legal American citizens is 10.4 percent, and forget that as legal Americans are searching for jobs and students are looking for summer employment, Obama has granted amnesty to 800,000 illegal aliens up to 30 years of age who are now cleared to compete for jobs that millions of citizens desperately need. And forget for the moment that in arbitrarily granting amnesty to these illegal aliens, he micturated on the Constitution of the United States.
Obama did not "grant amnesty" to anyone -- he permitted prosecutorial discretion in delaying legal action against cewrtain undocumented immigrants. "Amnesty" has a specific definition, and this is not it.
Is Massie -- who loves to beat people over the head with his thesaurus -- really so ignorant of the correct definition of the word? Or is he simply so unhinged in his hatred of Obama that facts simply don't matter to him?
