Krauthammer: Democrats Will Rue Day They Ceded Power to Obama

Democrats who refuse to stop President Barack Obama's excess use of executive power will be sorry when a Republican president decides to make use of the same power, says conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer.

Appearing Thursday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File," Krauthammer compared Obama's threatened executive action on immigration to the system in Venezuela, where if the president can't get laws passed through the legislative branch, "he issues a decree and that's it. And he'll arrest anybody who gets in the way."

In America, he said, "Congress has to pass it, he has to sign it. That's the way the damn thing works."

"The Democrats will rue the day when this kind of invasion of the territory of Congress was allowed to pass," Krauthammer said. "There's going to be a Republican administration one day and they will be on the receiving side of precedents that they themselves have set and did nothing about."

Krauthammer said Republicans should not shut down the government in their fight against Obama because that method is a proven failure. He said that although Obama's actions are an impeachable offense, he doesn’t favor going that route either since Obama has only two years left in his term anyway.
