Obama's Naked Pandering To Illegals
IBD ^ | June 15, 2012 | Editor

Posted on 06/18/2012 3:05:56 AM PDT by yoe

Election '12: In his most brazen act of pandering to date, President Obama has dangled de facto amnesty to 800,000 illegal immigrants in a shameless bid to win Latino votes. This is pure banana-republic electoral politics.

There's zero doubt Obama's Friday order to hand work permits to hundreds of thousands of illegals who claim they were brought here as children is merely an embattled and unpopular president's bid to gain an electoral edge.

Politics trump all other factors that a responsible president would consider, such as the wisdom of dumping nearly a million new job seekers onto the market to compete for jobs with America's 26 million unemployed at a time of sky-high unemployment.

[snip] Obama has told his supporters in the past that he couldn't take such a brazen step, knowing that its legality and clear usurpation of congressional authority would be questioned.

[snip This is no different from banana-republic politicos buying votes for bags of beans. Obama's gambit is in fact straight from Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, who, facing a tight recall referendum in 2004, handed citizenship to 2 million illegal immigrants in Venezuela to secure votes, and with Jimmy Carter's help, won.

It's also been done in that other banana-republic, California, where in 2003, Democratic Gov. Gray Davis offered drivers licenses to millions of illegals to secure Latino votes for his own recall referendum. It maddened California's voters and Davis was booted. ]

Mr. RomneyCARE has said yesterday that he agrees
with Obama on this. As usual, the RINO Romney
has the Tyrant’s ‘back’.

No high ranking Republican is making strong criticisms because they don't want to alienate the Hispanic vote. POS Obama and his cronies know this. Romney said something inane and same for the other. McCaine said some nonsense and same for Miss Lindsey Graham

San Francisco Chronicle‎ - 3 hours ago
Mitt Romney refused to say Sunday whether he would overturn President Obama's new policy allowing some young illegal immigrants to stay ...

How in the hell are these illegal “children” going to PROVE when they were brought over?

I guess you simply ask them or their parents/parent/uncle/aunt/friends etc... and that’s all that is needed.

Kind of like voting without an ID. You have to believe what they tell you; and of course, we know these law abiding illegals tell the truth every time don’t we?

All of you Romneybots got what you ordered....a flim-flam man.

Everyone knew his record and even Jim Robinson tried his best to defeat him in the primary by censoring this website of pro-romney posts.

We have been warned as to what a “change artist” he is and now he clearly shows his colors by not taking a stand of this horrible grab of power by the current dictator in power and ruler of all.

The future has been exposed and Romney is clearly one of the enemy too.

It's not 800,000.

It's 10 million, easy.

When the illegal alien children are given green cards (lawful permanent residency), they can then sponsor family members to live in the U.S. with them.

So a couple million illegal aliens (remember, we're talking adults up to 30 now) will be able to sponsor on average 3 - 4 more people.

10 million, easy. And they all get special privileges under Affirmative Action, since they're "victims" of whitey.

He's very desperate for votes.

The real issue here is how Congress (remember THOSE guys?)sit around like a crowd of atrophied dummies while this bounder does ‘fast and dirty’ with the rules!

We Republicans do not have a party.

We have a group of cowards.

I believe this election will be my last as a Republican.

School records would do it. However, nobody will ask them to prove anything.

Here we have an open Drug War along the Mexico Boarder. And Barack Obama and Janet Napolitano state that Young Mexican Males, between the ages of 16 and 30, pose No Security Risk to the United State of America. Mean while we have UAV’s Patrolling the Sky's of the United States Spying on all of us because we represent a Security Risk.

School records huh? I’ll bet that the old computer printer is smoking hot making fake school records as I write this response.

Haven’t you learned anything about the credibility of our public schools (socialist indoctrination centers)?

An Executive Order is NOT a Law. They just need to refuse to follow it. He can’t do anything about it if they do

If this doesn’t outrage 800,000 “legal” youths between 16 and 30, then the “kids” really are as stupid as the seem. They vote FOR this Obamanation, let’s see if they’re learned enough of a reason to vote against it now. Obama cares more about illegals than legals? Yep, here is the proof.

I don’t think “pandering” is an appropriate euphemism for high treason.

One of our many problems is that our legals are sympathetic to the illegals.

Hopefully the voters will apply some critical thinking and understand this to be a blatant act pandering, just like they saw right through the vapid "Hope and Change" BS in 2008....

Oh, wait...

They employ the illegal aliens and show them the ropes on how to scam the system. These days we have millions of poor legal immigrants as well as the poor illegals. They talk to each other about stolen SS numbers and legal IDs etc

Yes millions of legal immigrants are anti-illegal immigration but a lot more enable illegals here, house them, married to them, or just shack up with them, work with them and employ them as slave labor in their taco restaurants, Chinese buffets etc

What's to stop this Marxist from coming out in July and creating an edict that EVERYONE on US soil can now register to vote in Nov 2012 election? Who will stop him? NO ONE. It is way past time for the pitchforks..........

He didn't even issue an illegal Executive Order for the illegal aliens - just a speech is all it took and illegal aliens are now "LEGAL" Even mittens wouldn't touch this one - can you say McLame 2.

That should be Romney’s immigration policy, right there. Bulletproof if he had the guts.

The GOP deserves as much blame for our problems with illegal immigration over the years. I thought after 9-11, Bush would at the very least secure the borders. Even Reagan granted amnesty.

Big business loves cheap labor and as long as big business continues to bribe the GOP not much will be done.

He should state since the president of Mexico and many Mexicans living illegally within the borders of the US are so against our current and existing immigration laws, then we propose to enact immigration IDENTICAL to that of Mexico in the pursuit of FAIRNESS.
