    GUTIERREZ: I am so excited, Rachel. I told the president last night after having dinner, he made the presentation to us about what he was going to say tonight. I said Mr. President, I think it's so bold, so generous and so courageous of you. I'm going to go and my job now is to sign people up. After you issue this executive authority and you tell us who it is qualifies, I'm going up and sign them up. You know, back in July when I was talking and five million people, people would say, really? And they thought it...

    RUTH MARCUS, WASHINGTON POST: I think that's a really important point because I went back for purposes of writing this column that appeared in yesterday's paper and you can find it online at WashingtonPost.com and decided it was a little too cheap to use those words against him because we don't know what the president is saying he can't do versus what he is going to announce he is going to do. So, I'm really happy to hoist him on the petard of his words once he acts , if that's appropriate.

I would tell you to look at this as to who President Obama is. He is a president who is unable to get anything done with Congress, sees immigration as a national security issue and like really a Theodore Roosevelt or FDR is going to lay down this heavy marker on history right now and become in doing so a folk hero to Latino Americans.

    Pro-amnesty activists are declaring victory on Barack Obama's Facebook page. And more than that, similar to their actions on the White House's Facebook page, they are specifically calling out white people. This is the Barack Obama's real page, which has on it his official video announcing executive amnesty plan. And President Obama is allowing racist antagonism like the comments below. Racist comments by pro-illegal alien activists are all over the page. Here are just a few, which are still up at the time this article was written:

Hunt the Hilarious made his curious claim on today's Morning Joe after a clip was rolled of President Obama, just last year, saying that were he to grant amnesty to illegals "I would be ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally." Responded Hunt: "I don't agree with his analysis back then. I think...

    President Barack Obama is a liar. That’s the takeaway from Massachusetts Institute for Technology professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s video oeuvre of narcissistic honesty. “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure the CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies,” Gruber said in one of several videos recently uncovered of him explaining at forums and panels over the last several years how Obamacare was dishonestly sold to the public. “In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are...

    No kidding. On almost every measure, the Democratic Party has lost significant ground to Republicans during the Barack Obama era. Six years ago, they seemed ascendant, on the verge of the mythical “permanent majority” not just on the federal level but in state legislatures, politically and culturally, and certainly demographically. After suffering through not just one but two historic midterm debacles, Republicans are now much stronger than they were during the peak of the George Bush era — or even the Ronald Reagan era, in all places but the White House. Politico reports today that former Clinton advisor Donna Brazile...

    It’s hard to overstate how irresponsible President Obama would be to go forward, as he almost surely will, with his sweeping executive order on amnesty. Ross Douthat of the New York Times has written a fine column on why doing so would be, in his words, a “disgrace.” What the president is on the verge of doing would do tremendous, long-term damage to our political culture and our constitutional order. It would set a dangerous precedent. And it would be an act of extraordinary selfishness. By now none of this should surprise us. Yet on some level it’s hard to...

    What’s the textbook definition of “detached” from reality?

Excuse me? How does pardoning millions of trespassers, those who defiantly broke the law, equate to freeing millions who were brought here as cargo and left to languish and die under the vile auspices of slavery? How utterly myopic, insulting, and yes, detached from any sense of reality or decency! Is it therefore of any surprise this same cultist proclaimed that Barack...

    A Republican congressman known as a pit bull in Washington said Thursday that he doesn't support the idea of impeachment proceedings against President Obama because winning that fight would elevate the vice president to the Oval Office. 'Have you met Joe Biden?' South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy asked during a Fox News Channel interview. Impeachment talk has swirled around Washington since the president announced that an executive order overhauling America's immigration system is imminent. But some in the GOP see Biden as Obama's hedge against removal from office, since much of his public exposure has come in conjunction with a...

Obama went so far as to push out a video demanding unilateral action from the FCC on Net Neutrality, the latest White House distraction from the disastrous midterm elections and an attempt to show that Obama is still relevant: “As long as I’m President,” Obama says into the camera after cheesy, 1996-style buffering graphics, “that’s what I’ll be fighting for, too.” He may be fighting for it, but Obama clearly isn’t managing for it very well.

Nevertheless, knowing that closing the borders to air travel will almost certainly lead to closing all of our borders, a group of power hungry, Obama worshiping Democrats are mocking the idea.

At present it's hard to get infected — healthcare workers and family members caring for victims are at highest risk — but that would change if the virus were to mutate so that it could be transmitted through the air while keeping its present lethality. That's a nightmare scenario. But it's more the stuff of bad...

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats,...

    Buyer’s remorse for twice electing Barack Obama is taking hold. The first stage of grief is denial, after all, according to Kubler-Ross. USA Today has just conducted some revealing polls in six states with competitive Senate races: Now USA TODAY/Suffolk University polls in a half-dozen states with key Senate races underscore just how much times and political fortunes have changed for the president. In five of the six states, the percentage of likely voters who say they voted for Obama in 2012 has dipped from the actual results. Of those who say they did vote for him, as many as...

    If you caught any of this Sunday morning’s panel segments, you probably saw the left-of-center guest lamenting the scourge of Republican fear-mongering surrounding the spread of the Ebola virus overseas and in the United States. It is a theme echoed on Sunday by President Barack Obama who returned to the campaign trail this weekend after taking a week to directly oversee the government’s response to this crisis of Republican invention. He did not go as far as some on the left who have determined that voicing concern over Ebola’s spread from West Africa to the United States is, like virtually...

    The cleansing of all bodily orifices of dead Ebola victims by relatives of the same gender is a big factor in the uncontrollable spread of this deadly disease in West Africa. Yet our corrupt media refuse to fully vet this principle cause of contagion thereby allowing silence to spread the hemorrhagic disease. Ancient burial traditions, so deeply rooted in the native culture that government authorities are unable to bridge the gap of distrust, really are big factors because healthy relatives are required to put their hands into the Ebola bodies, still warm, just after death. And commonly known is the...

    Don't know what Dorian Warren's been smoking, but we can guess what he's been reading: Rolling Stone, and in particular a recent column in which Paul Krugman claims that Barack Obama is one of the most "successful presidents in American history" [ed.: not a typo]. On today's Morning Joe, MSNBC contributor Warren said he'd be happy to call his Vegas buddies to bet that "history will be very, very good to Barack Obama." Warren was responding to Joe Scarborough's suggestion that history will lump Obama and George W. Bush together for their lack of effective leadership. View the video here.

    Non-political junkies might not have noticed, but Reince Priebus got in a real zinger against Debbie Wasserman Schultz today. In a joint appearance on Fox News Sunday, DNC Chair DWS claimed that the key question for voters will be "who has my back?" Shot back RNC Chairman Priebus: "the President hasn't had anybody's back: not even your back." That was a reference to the Politco story "Democrats turn on Debbie Wasserman Schultz" reporting on President Obama's disdain for Debbie. Since 2012, the White House has wanted to dump DWS as DNC Chair. She is so shut out of meetings with...

    The problem with voting into the presidency an internationalist is that his oath to “protect and defend” the Constitution (and by implication the nation) doesn’t apply to this nation. He sees it as his duty to protect and defend some undifferentiated poor folks in the Third World. You suckers just pay the bills and suffer the consequences of his actions. Proof is overwhelming that this represents Obama’s mindset. This week is no exception. From a review of the expenditures made by this administration with tax revenues meant to protect our health and safety and his immigration policies, we can see...
