Video: Obama goes from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I’m not’ to I changed the law, so what?

President Obama admitted Tuesday before a room full of supporters what he has never admitted to the American people as a whole:

He changes the law however he likes – and he doesn’t give a damn about Congress or the Constitution.

Speaking about immigration at a Polish community center in Chicago, Obama was heckled by pro-immigration activists who accused him of not going even further in his sweeping declaration last week that upended American immigration laws under the guise of “prosecutorial discretion.”

There was no discretion involved, Obama told the hecklers. He’s simply changed the law outright.

“I just took an action to change the law,” Obama boasted, clearly exasperated that he wasn’t being treated with the respect a man of his position deserves.

This is the same president who only a year ago was explaining to immigration activists that his powers were limited by the Constitution.

“This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency” he said in February 2013. “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”

Whatever might have changed since 2013, it wasn’t the Constitution.
