No Mention of ‘Constitution’ in Obama’s Amnesty Speech

No Mention of ‘Constitution’ in Obama’s Amnesty Speech

In declaring his executive amnesty on Thursday evening, President Barack Obama did not use the word “Constitution” once. He cited the supposed precedent of previous executive orders by earlier presidents, and he spoke about law enforcement, but he never once showed how the actions he proposed to take are constitutional.

Instead, he reiterated his insistence that Congress had failed to act–and invited it to pass a bill he would sign.

Update: While ignoring the Constitution, Obama referred to himself some 31 times.
