Wingnut Freakout!

President Obama’s decision not to kick millions of Hispanic kids out of the country is causing thousands of conservative heads to explode. Here’s a post from National Review Online entitled “Now What?”:

In the wake of yet more rule-by-fiat from the Emperor Hussein, I look forward to the inevitable impotent fulmination from Boehner, McConnell and other GOP stalwarts — Orrin Hatch must be around here somewhere — who are finally figuring out the true nature of this administration. Not that they’re going to do anything about it, of course. Instead, they’re probably thumbing through their copies of Gibbon, seeking guidance about how best to manage decline and fall.

Everything Obama does in his first term has always been meant to serve two purposes. The first is to soften up and undermine the nation’s basic institutions, including the Constitution itself; the second is to get himself reelected. He tested the waters earlier with his “recess” appointments and now, with the imposition of a form of the DREAM act, is openly mocking the Congress. It would be funny if it weren’t so tragic, and tragic if it weren’t so funny.

As for a second term, the outlines are becoming ever clearer. We can’t say we haven’t been warned.

NRO commenters, meanwhile, are ready to pick up their muskets:

But, hey, as usual the Democrats reset of the bar is going to blow up in their faces. I have no reservations about using every single means available to destroy liberalism. If the Democrats want to give us more arrows for the quiver, outstanding! We will use them, gleefully.

And this is supposed to be the “responsible” right-wing blog? Yikes! God knows what the extremists are planning.

Anyway, here’s the deal:

a) The Republican base wants all undocumented Hispanics out of the country, pronto.
b) During the primaries, Mitt Romney pandered to the Republican base.
c) Barack Obama is forcing Romney to flip-flop on his pandering ahead of schedule, and the Republican base has to sit there and take it without proper conditioning.
d) The Republican base will vent over Romney’s betrayal by supercharging the Obama hate machine with huge injections of paranoia.

Politically, Obama’s immigration move is a possible game changer. And the wingnuts can’t handle it.
