Obama slams Arizona immigration bill
CNN ^ | 4/23/10

Posted on 04/23/2010 9:46:13 AM PDT by Kartographer

President Obama on Friday criticized a controversial new immigration bill in Arizona, calling it "misguided."

"Our failure to act responsible at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe," the president said at a naturalization ceremony for 24 members of the military.

Why does he think anyone cares? This is none of his business, end of story.

he also said that if enacted, he would ask the Justice Department to look into its constitutionality. That means the DOJ will find a Federal Judge to throw it out. This is the opening round of the 2010 immigration fight. I predict that starting next week, this will be all over the talk shows as Financial regulatory reform draws a snooze.

If Obama and LaRaza are very unhappy and against this we are definitely on the right track.

More than an “excellent bill”.....it goes to States Rights which must be enforced. The Feds have nothing to say about what Arizona or any other State does inside of their borders.

So, Mr Obama [if that's your name] Common Sense is now IRresponsible?

So am I but what are you?

Obama added, "As a nation, as a people, we can choose a different future, a future that keeps faith with our history, with our heritage, and with the hope that America has always inspired in the hearts of people all over the world."

Saul Alinsky would be so proud. Rule #11. "If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside."

OBAMA LIES [or he never read a History book he couldn't revise] AND A NATION DIES.

"Our failure to act responsible at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others.",

You got that partially right, Hussein. Allow me to rewrite it for you:

"Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level has opened the door for individual states to act responsibly."

State Senator Russell Pearce, the author of the bill, had these comments in response:

“Apparently this bill must interfere with his amnesty program. It’s too bad he sides with lawbreakers rather than lawkeepers.”

That’s approximate - I just heard it on Phoenix radio station KFYI. We need a thousand Russell Pearces in legislatures across this country.

FAIRNESS to obama is anything that hurts America, destroys heterosexuals, attacks Christians and hurts or kills any white person.

Zero needs to grant amnesty to all illegals because he needs their votes in 2010 and 2012. He is concerned that if Arizona continues to do what needs to be done to protect its citizens, then their strategy may become viral and spread to neighboring states along the border and beyond. He is afraid. He is very afraid.

It is way past time for the states to begin to take control of their immigration problems. It is apparent what the federal game plan is. Grant them amnesty, then citizenship, so that millions more will be encouraged to cross the border and reap the benefits at no cost to them. Where in the Constitution does it say that the U. S. exists to provide jobs, housing, food, education and health care to Mexico’s uneducated, illiterate masses that can’t speak
English.

Enough is enough. We must defeat any and all efforts relating to amnesty.

For all we know, Zero may need amnesty to obtain U. S. citizenship for himself. WHERE IS THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?

I give it a 50/50 chance that Obamoron escalates this to the point of mexican invader violence. You can take the homey from the street organizing but you cannot take the street organizer out of the man, and I bet he slips into that violent tone the “civil rights” nazis have used for decades. “NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE”

It becomes increasingly galling to hear this ridiculous poser talk about what we cherish as Americans. Shouldn't Obama try to be a little honest now and then and just talk about what he as a 'global citizen' cherishes. There's not much American about Obama, and I'm not referring to the birth certificate issue.

Damned few Americans cherish foreign lawbreakers who have no respect for US laws, and we probably cherish even less a deliberately negligent and irresponsible federal government which has allowed this situation to develop once again since the 1986 amnesty. And we cherish even less presidents and members of Congress who want to grant another amnesty which will instantly set the stage for the many millions of illegal entrants, waiting around for the next amnesty.

Check many years of polls, Obama. They sure as heck don't agree with you.

Hey OBastard: you're not bright enough to know what "basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans". Allowing ILLEGALS free roam of our country, pushing drugs and committing various other crimes, taking jobs without paying taxes, using our infrastructure, getting healthcare, etc...all while sucking up MY tax dollars is as far from "fair" as it gets.

STOP trying to speak for me you F#CKING A$$HOLE!

“basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans”

When a Democrat says “fairness” he means “favorable to the Liberals and Communists”.

Hello, Retardo!....You have it backwards as usual!....Your three ring P.C circus in the White House is as irresponsile as it gets in the colossal failure to protect the American people which was in your oath of office...remember? Since you won’t do a damn thing to secure or even defend the borders, people with some balls will do it for you!
