Rep. Mike Kelly: Obama Dragging Us Into Civil War

Rep. Mike Kelly proclaims that President Obama is leading us into a civil war over immigration policy.

The Ann Coulter influenced GOP is spinning out of control with their silly talk of our shredded Constitution, impending impeachment and now Civil war. There is nothing in American history that tea party freaks will not soil and Rep. Kelly is right there with the best of them:

Rep. Mike Kelly reacted angrily today to President Obama’s indication that he will soon temporarily relieve some undocumented immigrants of the threat of deportation, telling Newsmax host Ed Berliner that such a move will push the country into an “internal crisis” not seen since the days leading up to the Civil War. Kelly told Berliner that House Republicans shouldn’t take impeachment off the table.

He also harkened back to the Civil War and recommended that the president read Rick Warren’s book “A Purpose Driven Life” to temper his ego: “Right now in the history of our country we have never had such an internal crisis as we’ve had, not since the mid-1800s, of what we’re going through right now. Why would this president choose this issue and cause a constitutional crisis? I really suggest to him, there’s a book out that I read years ago, it was really a turning point in my life, by pastor Rick Warren and it’s called ‘A Purpose Driven Life’ and the very first words: ‘It’s not about me.’ This is the president who everything is about him, it’s about his legacy or what he’s going to say is his legacy. I would hate to see him go down in history, or maybe he wants to go down in history, as the guy who tore America apart.”

What danger lurks for the U.S. if Obama issues an executive order similar to the Dream Act? Absolutely nothing. The overwrought response to any presidential action on immigration by Republicans is mind boggling, but since AM hate talk radio controls the GOP, it's not surprising either. Nothing. Their politicians sound like basic wingnuts trying to get themselves a Sirius XM talk show.
