Oh my … Hillary Clinton has been caught speaking out of both sides of her mouth. Not just once or twice, but five times.
After President Obama’s speech on granting amnesty through executive actions, Clinton tweeted out her unbridled support for the power grab.
Thanks to POTUS for taking action on immigration in the face of inaction. Now let’s turn to permanent bipartisan reform. #ImmigrationAction

She would then issue a statement saying “I support the President’s decision to use executive actions” to alter an immigration system he disagrees with.
The GOP released a statement today highlighting five times that Clinton herself opposed the expansion of a President’s executive power. And you’ll never guess what the common thread in those statements was.
The President’s name at the time was Bush.
Here’s one example in which she accused President Bush of using “unbridled ambition to transform the executive into an imperial presidency.”
Clinton says something that most of America is saying today about President Obama.
“Unfortunately, our current President does not seem to understand the basic character of the office he holds. Rather than faithfully execute the laws, he has rewritten them through signing statements, ignored them through secret legal opinions, undermined them by elevating ideology over facts. Rather than defending the Constitution, he has defied it’s principals and traditions. He has abused his power, while failing to understand it’s purpose.”
Read the other instances in which Clinton claimed she wants to limit executive power here.
And remember this – If Hillary Clinton is hypocritical enough to say it’s okay for President Obama to abuse his power, think of what she’ll do when she gets in the White House.
You tell us – How much of a hypocrite is Hillary Clinton? If she wins in 2016 will we be essentially facing four more years of Obama?
