Watching President Obama's news conference with Mexican President Calderon today was an infuriating experience. I expected the pandering and insincere promises and I even expected some indirect criticism of Arizona's new illegal immigration legislation. What I did not expect was Obama to be so ideologically blinded that he would make the political blunder of criticizing an American state and its lawfully elected legislative body at a press conference in lock step with a foreign head of state. I should have known better.
Obama sided with a foreign power that sees the US as a cash cow and entitled to our money and our jobs. The billions of dollars from illegals working in the states keeps the failed government of Mexico afloat. The ruling elite in Mexico know that without the US absorbing the energies of millions of young Mexicans, their country would collapse into revolution. We are the pressure vent for the discontent that would rightly fuel that revolution. Corruption defines Mexico; drugs are a symptom of a criminal pathology that has infected the very bones of the country. Rather than fully address that, it is easier to cast dispersions at the US, especially now that we are emasculated by a leftist administration.
Mexican President Calderon's criticism of Arizona is thoroughly hypocritical and opportunistic. Like Obama, he's pandering to his radical fringe who view the US as stolen territory, the La Raza racists and Reconquista cultural insurgents. Mexico's official policy is to treat the border problems as something we created, as if our success is something for which we should apologize. Obama agrees. "We are not defined by our borders," our post-modern socialist President told the assembled news people and Mexican dignitaries. Whatever utopian claptrap inspired that nonsensical comment will not resonate with the American people who are sick and tired of apologies to every foreign despot and fool.
Obama's behavior is nothing less than a betrayal of the United States and our system of government, a slap in the face of law abiding citizens who believe in states' rights and the Constitution. Obama just acted like what he is, a perpetually adolescent ideologue from the fever swamps of leftist academia. He is faithless, neither patriot nor revolutionary, an opportunist at the beck and call of special interests and radicals without an original idea of his own. He will happily sell this country down the river, a "post-American" President with no love or affinity for the people he supposedly leads.
Obama is congenitally incapable of understanding that the President of America has a duty and responsibility to all Americans, not just black Americans or Hispanic Americans or poor Americans or transgender lesbian cross-dressing Americans. He hears only the minority and the radical. We want "our" borders secured, illegals sent home and the federal government to do its job instead of trying control our lives. With unemployment above ten percent, we can use the jobs done by immigration lawbreakers. I can make my own burritos, thank you very much.
Easy, he’s not our president. He never was, he never will be.
Why in red? It’s hard to read...
In honor of our red diaper doper baby present_ent, of course. Actually, I have no clue how that happened.
So what video box set did he get the President of Mexico?
Thanks Vet for posting such an articulate well written article by Fairchok.
Calderon criticizes AZ on the White House lawn while the “President” looks on??? WTH???
Meanwhile Mexico’s own immigration laws are far worse than ours. P!ss on both of them.
Obama is a tar ball that washed up on the shores of the body politic.
This sentence should have been set out as its own paragraph, and printed in bold. It is the key to understanding Obama's pathology.
He is so radical, that he doesn't even attempt to thread his public comments down the ideological middle, as most presidents would - especially during a flap of such enormous socio-political implications as the Arizona law has brought to the fore - and with his party facing annihilation this Fall.
Unbelievable. This, my friends, is the very picture of a 1,000% committed ideologue. I have never seen a president ignore the clear will of the American people the way Obama is doing.
The man is an oligarch. It's clear that he patterns his style of governance after dictators and other oppressive potentates who rule over their people with the iron fist of pure force.
Obama really must go. He's a sick individual who has no business in government, let alone the presidency.
We are not defined by Obama.
Erasing the world’s borders during this age leads to one specific result.
An exiled prisoner’s vision on the Isle of Patmos long ago tells us all we need to know.
Free trade is one thing; uncontrolled open borders is another.
well, yeah, or at least a pox on both their houses.
"Are we.... awake?"
"I'm not sure. Are we... black?"
"Yes, we are."
"Then we're awake; but we're... very... puzzled."
I will BUMP .....
“We are not defined by our borders,” our post-modern socialist President told the assembled news people and Mexican dignitaries.”
Then what are we defined by? Obama has already declared our system of “negative rights” antiquated, so there goes limited government. He has personally threatened Fox news, and has favored limitations on freedom of speech. Obama is replacing rule of law with “social justice” and thinks capitalism is evil. He has had his eyes on the savings of the retirees who worked and sacrificed so as not to be a burden on others, so that leaves out our former right to the pursuit of happiness.
Now we are not even defined by our borders? That implies that we are no longer a nation even in a political or linguistic sense. You still have the right to an opinion, Barry, even if nobody else does. So tell us. What is left for us to be defined by?
The last straw has LONG since been put on the camel’s with this Obama character.
