Stand by For Exploding Heads

If Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) is correct, we may be on the verge of a massive right-wing temper tantrum.

According to Gutierrez, the Obama administration may implement the executive orders recently struck down by a Texas judge in states that are not involved in litigation against the orders.

“That's absolutely something the White House is looking at,” Gutierrez said Wednesday during a press briefing in the Capitol.

“I think it's a great idea to look at the lawsuit and to say, 'OK judge, since you think the harm is to Texas, why can't we proceed in the rest of the states of the union and set that one aside?’” Gutierrez added.

A collection of 25 states, led by the state of Texas and their former attorney general and current Governor Greg Abbott, filed the lawsuit aimed at blocking the president's executive orders, but other states have actually supported the president's orders. Some states, such as California and Massachusetts, filed briefs with the court in support of the president.

If the White House determines it has the authority to implement the program in states not involved in the lawsuit, the program could begin in 24 states.

I can't even imagine what the right wing reaction will be if the administration goes through with this. They accused the president of declaring himself king for simply instructing immigration services to provide a greater number of work permits; the stuff of tyrants.

Will King Obama be succeeded by Dark Lord Obama?
