Columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that the president’s plan to implement immigration through an executive order “shows contempt for the system” and shows “arrogance and contempt for the voice of the people” on Thursday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“It [the election] was a repudiation of what the Democrats are doing. Stop doing that. And it was at every level, House, Senate, governorships, and that is a very clear unmistakable message. What impresses me is Obama’s arrogance and contempt for the voice of the people. This was a very unequivocal election. It was not nuanced. It was across the board. It was everywhere…we have had a verdict by the people of a kind that is quite unusual in American history and to go ahead and ignore it in spite of that, in spite of a rejection, in spite of a repudiation to say ‘I’m going to ignore the Congress and the will of the people I will do this regardless’ I think, shows contempt for the system.”
