Skip to comments.Preston's Politicals: Obama cuts to the chase, swooping in Hispanics and Gays by the millions

Today Barack Obama came out the gate looking like the horse that wants to win the double crown. It's only June but the man is nasty and mean! I don't remember the name of the man who is running against him, but he's got his you know what cut out for him.
Obama, according to most ultra-conservatives slapped legislative and judicial in the face today and announced immigration amnesty to some who are in the U.S. and considered illegal.
Although the conservative airwaves are screaming Constitution and how can he, the fact is he can. Almost all executive officers of state have extreme privilege in the field of amnesty. Even on a state level the out-going governor of Louisiana recently cleared the names of dozens of convicted and literally freed dozens in prison - including some convicted of murder.
It is called Executive Privilege. Obama stayed legal by not granting citizenship, which he cannot do based on Constitution. Also, on the gay side he is front and center - excuse the analogy. Obama is not only nodding to civil rights for gays and lesbians, he is showing he means it.
Obama looks like a man who wants four more years in office. He has a large block of black voters, he has a large block of gay voters and he has a large block of hispanic voters - that's more than half of America. Who do you think is going to win?
All 1% of them?
“He has a large block of black voters, he has a large block of gay voters and he has a large block of hispanic voters - that’s more than half of America. Who do you think is going to win?”
What a moron. If he was a dozen times as intelligent he could probably write for a paper someone has heard of.
At best thousands. Most Illegals will be reluctant to buy into this and all the queers that will vote for him were going to vote for him anyway.
Absolutely correct. Gays vote, but what are the real numbers?
...and how about the “young illegals”...
will POTUS put them on the voting roles???
Those actions would be useful if they were less inclined to vote for 0bama before. That gays and illegal Hispanics already were voting for him, what he did simply alienated the rest of the voters—particularly those who don’t care much about identity politics.
I like letting them think that they’ve just performed a miracle that’ll get BHO re-elected. They’re delusional. Do you know how much of the union household vote he just lost on this? Look how his “gay marriage” move has cost him black votes all over the place!
Refocus the message - JOBS!!
we don’t care about better loan offers for students or home loans, what we care about are jobs!! Those young people won’t have a better job when the graduate, because 30% of all grads don’t have a job. Stay on the message - It the eonomy that is ruined. Student amnesty will be one more reason for fewer jobs for your kids with 60,000 in college debt!!!
I think, no I KNOW, Obama is NOT going to win. This nation is not outnumbered by fags (2 percent at best) nor leftist Hispanics (8~9 percent of total 14% of Hispanic population) nor Blacks at 12.6% of total population, many of whom are conservative. At total of 28% percent MAX for these groups, many of which are abandoning Obama - leftists within the combined group total nowhere near 'half of America.'
These “young illegals” can be up to 30 years old. And we can expect a flood of them to follow.
Preston’s cute, but I like the spouse’s blue shirt.
they’re assuming hispanics and gays don’t care about economics?
Preston needs to look up the word "minority" in the dictionary.
For example, sweetie, hispanics comprised 6.8 of the electorate in 2010. Their percentage of the electorate was lower than their percentage of the population because so many of them are not citizens and are ineligible to vote.
Blacks are about 14% of the population, and gays about 2-3% of the population.
And there's significant overlap between those three percentages.
Maybe I’m wrong, but Obama already had the black vote, the gay vote and the illegal alien vote - all these acts by him are simply pi**ing off everyone else and highly motivating his opposition to go out and vote (and get everyone else they can as well to vote against him).
Granted that the blacks will still vote for him in ultra high numbers, but if even a small percentage either vote against him, or more likely, don’t vote at all - this will definitely hurt him at the polls.
The majority of this country are OUT-RAGED with this president. I think we’re going to see blue-collar democrats, southern dems, and independents, all come out and vote against Obama and the democrat party like we haven’t seen in 30 years.
I think Romney will win simply because people are not so much voting for him, but because they are voting against Obama. This is what happened to Bush W back in 2008, but I think Obama will lose in a huge landslide.
Most Americans do not want a president to rule by fiat. We do not want a King and Obama thinks he is one.
Where does our dictator leader get his numbers.
Obama might not have Hispanic Catholics, or Hispanics who want their children who are here legally to get jobs. Gays, ...please, no matter how you add them up, you don’t have a demographic that turns things at the polls. Blacks, yeah, he has them, but not the ones who don’t like gays, or the blacks who don’t want to compete with 800 thousand illegals for jobs and educations. Not only that, Obama just kicked a few discontented conservatives in their non voting butts, and they don’t like it. He might have encouraged as many votes against him as he is going to pick up for him. He is going to lose worse than Carter did.
They can grant amnesty for crimes committed, but can they make it "perpetual amnesty" if they keep committing crimes?
I don’t understand what he is doing. He already had the gay and hispanic voters. Why then is he pandering to them? All he is doing is losing the independent vote, and the vote of some lukewarm conservatives. For those of us who are watching, this is good.
