On Friday, before President Barack Obama’s end-of-year press conference, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer declared that Obama’s executive amnesty is one of the reasons that made 2014 a “year of great progress” for Obama “and the progressive agenda.”
“President Obama’s executive action to fix our immigration system is the most meaningful effort in decades to make the system fairer, more transparent, and more predictable,” he spun. “It is a decision with legal, economic, and moral justifications, and its implementation over the next few years will be a boon to this country for decades.”
He also cited the economy, Obamacare, and Obama’s judicial appointments and actions on climate change for making 2014 such a success for progressives.
“It turns out you can get a lot done with a pen and a phone,” Pfeiffer wrote, declaring that Obama delivered on his promise that 2014 would be a “breakthrough year for America.”
Though constitutional Americans have marked 2014 as a year of unprecedented overreach by Obama’s White House, Pfeiffer also claimed that “years from now, people will look back on 2014 as one the most significant and successful years of this historic and tremendously consequential Presidency.”
“It turns out you can get a lot done with a pen and a phone,” he said.
