In a rare moment of almost-lucidity, Pat Robertson is warning Republicans not to overreact to Obama’s executive order on immigration by shutting down the government or trying to impeach. In fact, he says that Obama is only doing to provoke just such a reaction.
“It’s just incredible because it’s a political grab and you wonder what are they playing for,” he said. “I said yesterday and the day before that it’s no question it’s a set-up on this immigration thing, it’s a set-up to trap the Republicans into making some extreme move or to build a constitutional crisis where it looked like they have shut the government down.
“We can’t have that happen, so they’ve got to take a very cautious approach to how they stop the president. But they can shut him down in a number of other ways, and they have got to do it.”
