Amnesty a Product of Obama’s Elitism

Victor Davis Hanson: “In 2008, [Barack Obama] bragged to an interviewer, ‘I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to think I’m a better political director than my political director.’ That same sense of superiority explains his campaign boast that, ‘We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.’ No wonder Obama believes that he can just give millions of foreign residents amnesty by executive order…. Progressivism has always assumed that the supposed noble ends of fairness and quality justify any means necessary to achieve them. Influential Americans also have developed a sick idea about higher education, equating wisdom and character with a degree stamped from an Ivy League or exclusive university. The media has abdicated its watchdog role. … Wealth and status assure elites that their own lives are never affected by the laws they pass or by the concrete ramifications of their own ideology.”
