But You Know He Wishes He Was

As more and more "progressives" demand King President Obama ignore existing laws and make up his own, Barack lamented that he just couldn't do that under his current position:

Although President Obama was willing to order the federal government to stop deporting young ‘DREAMer’ illegal immigrants last summer, he signaled in an interview with Latino network Telemundo that he couldn’t allow all illegal immigrants to stay. [...]

“Well, I think as– as you know– and I’ve said this before to you, Jose, but– I’m not a king,” Obama replied. “You know, my job as the head of the executive branch ultimately is to carry out the law. And– you know, when it comes to enforcement of our immigration laws– we’ve got some discretion. We can prioritize– what we do.

"I'm not the Messiah either, but sometimes I feel like it," Obama added.
