Boenher: Obama is “damaging the presidency itself”

President Barack Obama’s insistence to use his executive power to fix America’s broken immigration system has enraged the Republican leadership in Congress.

House Republican John Boehner says President Obama has acted unilaterally like a king or emperor, and not through a democratic process.

“With this action, the president has chosen to deliberately sabotage any chance of enacting bipartisan reforms that claims to seek,” said Sen. Boehner, “and as I told the president yesterday, he’s damaging the presidency itself.”

Political exert Jay Gonzalez says President Obama choosing to take matters in his own hands on immigration will have a damaging effect on his relationship with Republicans.

Republicans have just filed a lawsuit against the president for reportedly overstepping his executive authority when it comes to Obamacare, and they have vowed to counter his move to provide relief to millions of undocumented immigrants with legislative action.

Beyond fixing immigration, Gonzalez says President Obama had to issue his executive order on immigration for political reasons. He says after an embarrassing loss in the midterm elections, the Democrats needed a feel good win.

In poker terms, Gonzalez says Obama’s move was an all-in.

And the demographics of the immigrants who will benefit from the executive order will support and vote for the Democratic Party. He says this is investing in political capital now and for the future of President Obama’s party.

Gonzalez also says that President Obama proceeded with his executive order on immigration because he knows that if the Republican-led Senate and House work together toward an immigration bill, it will go through. But it will be a Republican-initiated law and essentially they will get credit for it.
