That’s right. Obama’s new counselor, the man in charge of saving his presidency, believes the Republican Party is a murderous cult and that this justifies Obama’s extra-constitutional use of executive power.
Every Republican in Washington, DC, should read this article on Podesta’s power grab, and those Republicans contemplating working with Democrats on immigration reform should read it twice.
Whatever legislation you write with Democrats, and Obama signs into “law,” will not be worth the paper it is printed on. Obama’s new counselor believes Republicans are evil and therefore Obama ought to be empowered to do whatever he wants no matter what the law says.
That is the new normal in Washington as long as Obama is still president.
