Obama's wrong way to do the right thing: Our view

USA Today Editorial: "Obama was well aware of the issues raised by such sweeping unilateral action. More than a dozen times earlier in his presidency, he told those pushing for such an order that he couldn't responsibly sign one. "Believe me," he said in 2011, "the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. But that's not how our system works. That's not how our democracy functions. That's not how our Constitution is written.""

Someone should ask him what other things he has felt tempted to do and what, if anything, stops him from doing them now? Of course, that would require a press core composed of vertebrates.

The editorial draws a good parallel with the possibility of a future Republican president suspending enforcement of Obama-care tax mandates.
