    Here is a civics lesson folks. Every individual in an executive position has to make decisions on how to enforce the law. The city mayor tells the cops, “Don’t write parking tickets”. A state governor tells the state police, “We don’t have the resources to conduct seat belt road checks every month like the law says we have to, do them every other month.” And yes, every American president since Washington has had to make the same decisions. It’s what we pay them for. We pay Congress to make the stupid laws, we pay the president to do his best to figure them out.

    There’s a difference between choosing, on a case by case basis, whether to enforce particular laws in individual cases, and choosing, as a categorical basis, not to enforce laws because you dislike their political application – or, as President Obama did with the ACA, unilaterally change sections of the law on the fly to avoid the inconvenient political fallout of a law he had championed. The former is a necessary application of prosecutorial discretion. The latter is a violation of our separation of powers and constitutes an attack on our Rule of Law.
