Do you understand that I am not talking about the dream act itself? I am talking about a president that is out of control in every direction that he
turns. He can do all the good deeds that he likes, but he must follow the laws of the country that he represents. What he did is illegal, and
nothing can justify this.
I apologise if I did not explain the reasons behind my post.
1) I doubt this was actually illegal. Obama knows the laws well. He has the degree from one of the strongest laws schools in the world after all. Even
if, from some viewpoints it might seem illegal, there are either loopholes or some extra conditions that make it legal. He is already having too much
scandals, so I doubt wants more of these. I believe it to be just a "made-up scandal" by some opponents. I do not know the laws of US well enough,
although the illegality of it seems to be questionable.
2) I have no opinion on Obama , although I dislike the current trend of trashing the guy for the actions done by others... It is like trashing the CEO
of the company for some stupidites a subsidiary across the world has done... I have run some big projects myself and even I had no time to deal with
all the departments. I had 4 deparments under me (4 deparment leaders with teams on their own). I instructed them and they reported back, although I
could not make them always follow my orders. If one decided to not tell me something happening downstairs, I could do nothing... as I was not aware of
it. Everything comes down to command-line, I had nearly 500 people under me (total), US president has thousands with hundreds of departments running a
300-million people country. It is impossible for him to be aware everything happening. I am not defending the actions his administration has done,
although I do not blame him as I am quite sure he had nothing to do with most of the scandals. Somebody in the bottom, f´´ked up, he gets the blame
from the media
3) ATS is full of different threads depicting stupid laws and people doing good things getting punished for their actions. Also there are many threads
critizing the government for not taking action and doing things necessary. If some person did something good and got punished because of laws, he
would be seen as hero who got punished. When the president actually doing something worthy (which I doubt to be illegal (but can be), look at point
1), then he is seen as a criminal... This seems as hypocritical...
