Is Obama our own Hugo Chavez?

The Obama administration is reportedly looking into ways to "legalize" the millions of illegals in this country by some sort of executive action, according to a former Bush administration official who has talked to several people involved in the discussions.

"The former official said it's unclear what specific avenues the administration is considering, but that one potentially feasible option would be to use either deferred action or parole to legalize at once the millions of immigrants who have overstayed their visas -- not necessarily those who crossed the border illegally.

Deferred action and parole would give illegal immigrants the ability to seek a work permit and temporary legal status.

Those two tools are usually used on a case-by-case basis. The former official said any move to broaden that authority and use it on a mass basis would be 'woefully inappropriate'"...

It was obvious from the first moment Obama appeared on the scene that he was a radical leftist, who was unfortunately able to bamboozle millions of Americans into believing he was some sort of moderate. But it wasn't obvious that he would be willing to go this far.

This is Hugo Chavez territory. Some commentators have termed his administration to be a "gangster government", and this would put him firmly in that category.

We can only cross our fingers and hope he really doesn't intend to go that far. Based on his track record, it may be a forlorn hope. If he does pull that trigger, the issue for the next election should be whether to impeach him.
