“That’s Not How Our Constitution is Written”

I agree with every word that President Obama says in this excerpt from a speech to La Raza just under a year ago (July 25, 2011):

In case you can’t see the video, here’s the transcript:

“Some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. Believe me, right now, dealing with Congress, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you, not just on immigration reform! But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”


(In case you don’t understand why I’m posting this now, please read what the President did last Friday.)
