Obama: ‘I Don’t Prefer Taking’ Executive Action, But Congress ‘Forces Me To’Posted: June 30, 2014
Taking executive action to address immigration issues is a step President Obama said he
takes gleefully, because he prefers it to governing responsibly, and lawfully, as presidents have for two centuries reluctantly has to take because Congress was elected by the people, and has the authority to act on their behalf of Congress’s lack of action.

Following reports that John Boehner told the president he will not bring immigration reform for a vote this year, the president said he “would love nothing more” than to
take all my marbles and go home, because they’re all so mean to me not have to act unilaterally and be able to sign legislation instead.
“I don’t prefer taking administrative action,” he said in the Rose Garden on Monday.
“I’m lonely, and nobody likes me “I would greatly prefer to rule as an autocrat, or a beloved cult leader, and represent only those who agree with me, and make up laws as I please Congress actually do something.”
“I take executive action only when
I feel like it we have a serious problem, a serious issue, and the Senate refuses do do anything Congress chooses to do nothing,” the president continued. He chastised House Republicans for injuring his self-esteem and making him feel like giving up failing to “pass a darn bill.”
He has asked his staff to
help him subvert the constitution at every opportunity, and worry about the lawsuits later come up with a list of executive actions he can take on immigration before the end of the summer.
