The tactic was crudely and successfully used Dec. 19 in his year-end press conference, when Obama waved away a reporter’s question about the economic condition of African-Americans in the sixth year of his presidency, and quickly shifted the topic to racial conflict.

posted by Leave a Comment

The Uphold the OATH Resolution is similar to Congressman Rice’s Stop This Overreaching Presidency (STOP) Resolution, H. Res.442, introduced last December.  WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Tom Rice (R-SC) introduced H. Res.772, the Uphold the Oath Americans Trust and Honor (OATH) Resolution.  This legislation would authorize legal action against the Administration for President Obama’s latest immigration overreach.

“Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution grants Congress the responsibility to craft our country’s immigration laws,” said Congressman Rice.  “Furthermore, Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution states that the President shall take care that our nation’s laws are faithfully executed.  President Obama has acknowledged these roles and took an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.  Instead of upholding this oath, the President has repeatedly chosen to ignore it.”

GOP leaders were hoping to have the text out today. The bill is expected to fund Obama’s amnesty and all the rest of DHS through March 2015, and GOP leaders including Boehner have not pledged to fight it even then.
