He Should Have Started With The Easy Stuff

Like closing Guantánamo...

"The border’s too big. The hole in the Gulf is too deep. The recession is too stubborn. Maybe we should find the president a smaller, easier-to-manage country to govern."

"What's wrong with enforcing the law?"

An apt question from a reporter.

Bambi and Holder's law suit against Arizona is classic cherry picking by ideologues. If Barry is so concerned about state intrusion into federal areas of jurisdiction, why has he not acted before now against sanctuary cities? They actively and openly flout federal immigration laws, effectively over-riding them.

This law suit is not about jurisdiction, It is about politics. Barry is trying to build a coalition of minorities who can save his sorry ass in 2012. It won't work but in trying, he will do serious damage to the US.

BO is amistake the voters made that was almost instantly regretted. "Voter's remorse" has set in permanently and short ofBo declaring himself dictator for life, he will be hurled into political oblivion in 2012. After the elections of 2010 he will be a lame duck president and the neo-fascist take over of the republic will start to recede.

I hope Americans vote out all incumbents and choose a tea party candidate. It's going to take a lot of uncorrupted nonpartisan congressmen to roll back the damage done by BO's Fascist economics.

It is surprising that Fox News commentators and others can't seem to pick up on the marxist and Mexican logic involved. Beck comes close with his "slavery exploitation" cheap labor analogy as to why immigration enforcement against the unskilled Hispanic illegal alien is not a priority with exploitive businesses and the leftist unions looking to collar dues payers and Democratic Party future voters.

The Mexican mindset is very interesting because it closely resembles the destroy Israel scenario of the Palestinian policy regarding their "lost territories". The southwestern states are deemed to be illegally occupied by gringos as the result of unfair treaties ending unfair aggressive wars. So Mexican illegal aliens and in fact all Mexicans are the rightful collective owners of these lands and should be allowed unfettered access just like the members of First Nations can cross the Canadian/USA border unhindered as a treaty right.

The Obama crowd no doubt have seen this as closely fitting into their plans to build ethnic political patronage voting blocs leading to eventual one party permanent rule.

The Chinese built the great wall beginning in the 7th century BC. It was aproximatly 6000km long.
the Great Wall's purpose was to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire from invaders.
What century are we now in?

Another blind spot in the coverage of the Arizona controversy is that the Federal Government has been clearly guilty of racial profiling in failing to secure the Mexican border. The false accusation of racial profiling against Arizona for enforcing federal laws is a cover for the real racial profiling in not enforcing the laws. Obama has lost the voters in the centrist and independent camps and is now relying on the Hard left, Blacks, Latinos and the brain-dead. As predicted, Obama's turning out to be the most racist president since Woodrow Wilson. The dropping of charges of voter intimidation against the Black Panthers confirms this. By the time this administration is done, race relations will have been put back decades if not centuries.

There is a lot of whining and sniveling on how hard it is to be of POTUS - things would have been so much simpler if only there had not been GW Bush. Obama and this administration wanted frat house parties and 9 - 5 hours. Well you wanted the job, now reap the whirlwind, otherwise go back to Harvard. Cheers.

After almost 2 years of Bambi's socialization of America, the best quote still remains Sara's:

"The border’s too big. The hole in the Gulf is too deep. The recession is too stubborn. Maybe we should find the president a smaller, easier-to-manage country to govern."

Probably the most incisive comment yet on BO's management ability.

Delicious irony; Tea Party lynch mobs flailing wildly at the Only peoples that can save the culture they so vociferously claim to be fighting for... Fortunately, they remain on the fringe as Republicans balance their lunacy with the desperate need for their vote. Much like Ms Alaska, the reward will most assuredly spoil the plot~

"Maybe we should find the president a smaller, easier-to-manage country to govern."

That's the U.S. for ya. Always exporting their problems to other countries. Well, we don't want him.

I'd say he picked the wrong state to mess with, myself. Lots and lots of people in Arizona haven't lost their inner cowboy, know what I mean?

I got a suggestion. Zimbabwe, as Mugabe's successor.

OKay, ... now I understand why American Republicans and their subsidiary organization, the Canadian Conservatives, are so wildly in favour of the Arizona law.

Think about this? If this article is being ran in Boston, one of the most democratic states going what does that say? Man, he really must be tanking big time!!! Will he even make it to the end of his first term?

Definitely the quote of the week.

Posted by: TJ at July 8, 2010 5:01 PM

This guy pretty much puts things like this in perspective. America's day may be over because of the Marxist. Than again it might become like China.
staying a Republic is looking less likely every day Obama sits in the White House.

When Nations Die:
Nations and empires actually do have "life cycles." This has been studied by many historians throughout the years and they all have come to about the same conclusion: a lifetime of about two centuries. Nations all seem to go through the same life cycle: "from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependence back again into bondage." - Alexander Tyler, 1750

If only there was a problem for which the correct solution was to play more golf.

What is easy (and quick) stuff for Obama?

releasing the Russian spies!!!

It took 10 years of hard work for the FBI to catch those Russian spies but Obama released them after only a couple of days.

Yup.

10 years of work down the drain...

Even the News Hour on PBS is second guessing Obama's decisions...

If you live west of Quebec you can catch Rham Emanuel on PBS this evening being asked questions such as;
" Did Obama approve of this ? "
or relating to the economy;
" Does it still work to blame the Bush administration ? "

Rham was being condescending (if not plain insulting )to Jim Lehrer, he said "I feel like I am a kid doing his homework"

PBS usually leans left but not today.

Watch it on your local PBS station!

"Undocumented Democrats"

THERE is a phrase that needs to catch on.

Posted by: Angilbert at July 8, 2010 11:15 PM

There's a very large difference between reporting illegal immigrants discovered during a justified and lawful inspection (such as a traffic stop) and stopping people purely under the suspicion of being an illegal immigrant.

Zimbabwe for Obama. Give the poor Zim people a break. They have suffered already for too long under Mugabe.

Posted by: tranio at July 9, 2010 8:32 AM

No, the problem isn't that the issues are too big, the country too big...it's that Obama's desires are off-set by these pesky things known as the "Constitution" and "checks and balances."

Do you really think Obama'd have any problems saying, "Do X, Y, Z" if he could rule unfettered by the rights of us peons?

I don't.

Posted by: Amy P. at July 9, 2010 9:43 AM

Actually it seems esin - sorry, that should have read ESTONIAN, not Latvian - has done the 1-post hit-and run, but I do wish he/it would return just once more to translate this ESL crap into English for me:

"Delicious irony; Tea Party lynch mobs flailing wildly at the Only peoples that can save the culture they so vociferously claim to be fighting for... Fortunately, they remain on the fringe as Republicans balance their lunacy with the desperate need for their vote. Much like Ms Alaska, the reward will most assuredly spoil the plot~ "

Whaddaya say, esin? "The reward will surely spoil the plot~" might be a fine old Estonian parable, but we need an English equivalent.

Or, you could just FOAD as you seem to have done...

Posted by: Michael H Anderson at July 9, 2010 1:11 PM

Michael H Anderson - how culturally insensitive of you. Allow me to put you some edumacation. Latvia is not the same thing as Estonia; it's the same thing as Lithuania.

In future, try to care more.

Until the powers that be have lobotomized his replacement, Obongo will stay where he is.

Apologies to people of genuine Baltic descent; it appears esin's first language would actually be Turkish:
