Obama “respects the rule of law” when he isn’t too busy ignoring it

President Obama is some piece of work.  Audacity of Hope?  More like the audacity of a two faced hypocrite.

Obama has the nerve, the gall, to respond to a petition for his action in freeing US Marine Tahmooressi from a Mexican jail after he got lost in the desert and wound up on the wrong side of the border with his legally owned US firearms, by saying the White House “respects the rule of law.”

To wit:

“We respect the rule of law and expect the judicial process of sovereign nations to protect other U.S. citizens who might find themselves in similar circumstances in the future.”

So as one of our own Marines rots in a Mexican jail, Mr. Obama is taking a play out of Gov. Christie’s playbook and letting things “play out”.  Great.  Because Mexico is KNOWN as a bastion for judicial integrity and fairness.  Speaking of Mr. Obama’s LOVE for the rule of law, why exactly aren’t we deporting illegal immigrants back to their home country?

Ironically enough, a large number of these immigrants seem to be fleeing the same country that Tahmooressi finds himself unable to.  Perhaps if Mexico paid more attention to keeping their own citizens inside their own borders, or locking up the drug dealing, murdering and raping cartels instead of honest Marines, the country might not be such a cess pool that it’s own citizens seem so intent on fleeing from.

But like most things, President Obama doesn’t respect the rule of law.  Or rather, he only respects it when it suits him and will wantonly disregard it the minute it suits him.

For instance, his quote from 2012:

“And where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves.”

Or more recently when the Supreme Court ruled in Noel Canning v. NLRB, No. 12-1115, and found that President Obama had indeed violated the constitution in his recess appointment.

And from earlier this year:

I intend to keep trying, with or without Congress, to help stop more tragedies from visiting innocent Americans in our movie theaters, shopping malls, or schools like Sandy Hook.

Apparently the laws that govern OUR nation aren’t too high on Mr. Obama’s respect meter.  Things like due process, checks and balances, Supreme court rulings etc.  When it comes to his OWN countries rule of law Mr. Obama acts like a petulant child throwing a fit and pouting.  He will do it HIS way so THERE!

All the while, even though he broke the law when he traded away 5 high valued terrorists for an Army deserter and enemy syphathizer in Bergdahl, Tahmooressi stays in a filthy Mexican hovel of a jail, fighting off inmates and hoping he won’t have to die for Obama’s international respect for law.

I hope you find a way home soon Tahmooressi, but it will most likely be on your own for I don’t think our President respects YOU enough to help.

Good luck.
