Keith Koffler over at White House Dossier posted “A Sad Day” the day the news broke about Obama and what he had planned to do on Immigration. He expressed my sentiments exactly.
As the news broke Wednesday that President Obama would finally do what he has been threatening to do for months, the emotion that gripped me was not the one I expected. It was not anger, not frustration, not sarcasm, and not contempt.
It was just sadness. It was a feeling that something had died.
This is a turning point. This is a new nation. Fundamentally changed.
If we are indeed to become a country in which the chief executive ignores laws and does as he pleases, then we are finished.
An excellent post, and worth the wander over for the full read at White House Dossier. This song came to mind. A bit maudlin as I think about it today, but expressed my feelings at the time.
It’s been a tough week for Conservatives and our dear Republic.
