Like most sitting presidents, Barack Obama enjoyed the opportunity to lead the country without the critical commentary of his predecessor as former president George W. Bush kept his promise to refrain from making public statements about him after Obama became president in 2009.

Bush left Washington D.C., retired to Texas and allowed Obama to govern his own way.

Apparently, Obama is unwilling to extend the same courtesy to his successor, as he seems unable to refrain from criticizing President Donald Trump for ending DACA – the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Trump’s action may have offended more than Obama’s political position, as DACA was never a duly-enacted law passed by Congress, but purely the creation born of the former president’s ego in doing something he repeatedly stated in public that he had “no authority” to do.

Obama told crowds, even of Hispanics and illegal immigrants, that no matter how much he wished he had the power to issue amnesty, he lacked the constitutional authority to do so because he was “not a king.”

Obama said he issued the Executive Order effectively giving amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants to spur Congress to enact immigration reform.

“It’s not a permanent fix. This is a temporary stopgap measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people. … Precisely because this is temporary, Congress needs to act.”

In fact, DACA fit in perfectly with the strategy of creating new voters of immigrants beholden to Democrats for their status.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the rescission of DACA that will be phased in over the next six months in order to give those affected time to make plans and Congress time to finally enact immigration reform.

Obama, like all other Democrats in D.C., wasted no time in publicly attacking President Trump for ending the DACA – a policy he himself admitted he had no right to create.

“Let’s be clear: the action taken today isn’t required legally,” Obama said, adding with ironic hypocrisy, “It’s a political decision, and a moral question.”

Do you think former President Obama is right to criticize current President Trump about his action rescinding DACA – Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals?
