Obama: Arizonans “irresponsible” for immigration-enforcement vote
Hot Air ^ | APRIL 23, 2010 | ED MORRISSEY

Posted on 04/23/2010 12:57:52 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Border states have become frustrated beyond all patience with the federal government’s inability — and reluctance — to enforce immigration laws. In Arizona, voters passed a law authorizing local and state police to investigate potential immigration violations, a measure that had overwhelming and bipartisan support in the state. Instead of acknowledging the failure of several administrations to deal with immigration violations, including his own, Barack Obama lashed out at the state’s voters instead — and threatened to pursue civil-rights legal actions against them:

Yeah, Hitler wasn’t particularly excited about that Churchill speech either. Deal with it.

Is there such a thing as an illegal alien? If so, then we should be able to arrest them for being here illegally. If not, then we don’t need borders.

Look, every visual ethnicity in this country might one day have to pay in police suspicion for what their similar-looking brethren did. I know a million Jewish, Italian, and Hispanic people who have been profiled during plane travel because they look like they might be Muslim men. Anyone looking Hispanic might get profiled for appearing illegal. GET OVER IT.

When a blonde woman blows up a tower or kidnaps a kid, I might get pulled over. I can deal with it.

People who look Hispanic might get mistaken for an illegal in Arizona. So? If you are an American or legal resident in Arizona, and you have a Mexican or Latino background, I’d advise you to learn English, dress American, or deal with getting pulled over. Your cousins from across the border are the problem, NOT the cops.

Did I hear this correctly? The President of the United States, refusing to direct his own bureaucratic apparatus to enforce the laws of the United States, has stated that it’s “irresponsible” for state and local authorities to enforce those laws he won’t?

What kind of nuthouse are we living in?

Well, OK, I’ll accept that. I would certainly hope that state and local authorities also find it “irresponsible” to cooperate in any way with the IRS in confiscating my money.

Hopefully we can start “hitting back” just as Barry is doing to the American taxpayer and business owners. Every day is something knew. They are trying to wear us down, pass as much as they can to permanently destroy America, before they get exiled to some socialist country. Let’s hit Barry back. State bills from every Border state.

That’s true. Since I’ve been alive and conscious, he’s the most arrogant SOB to be President. Although, I think he should be in the top 5.

Obama desperately needs more illegal immigrant voters to keep the rats in power. His standard leftist base isn’t multiplying fast enough (too much baby killing) and indoctrination only works on kids who pay attention to the leftist teacher.

It is “irresponsible” to fail to do one’s duty to Obama. He really believes that he is a monarch.

Every one send a letter to the Obama ass in chief, letter simply states - STATES RIGHTS DUMBO.

The Civil War (north) or War Between the States (south) was not fought to end slavery it was fought because the Feds wanted to dictate to the states what to do. The states that seceded did so because of States Rights. It was not until 1863 with the Emancipation Proclamation that slaves were to be freed by the states that seceded and when they rejoined the union they had to allow the slaves to be freed

The tenth amendement allow the states to pass legislation that the people of the state desire. For example in the State of Michigan - medical marijuana was legalized by the voters in November 2008 - but wait the municipalities have decided to review the states jurisdiction, because many of the municipalities are saying no to medical marijuana.

Did Barry O say anything about that rancher who was killed last week in southern Arizona or New Mexico (possibly by illegal border crossers)? Perhaps certain types of US citizens don't count too much in the O's book.

He is painful to behold. . .

Obama;s message alway on target; save for whom he thinks he is addressing it to.

The truth 'must out' no doubt; and so it is; it does. . .if only miscast and misdirected at those who Obama needs to make villainous; by his own pathetic lack of virtue.

Which speaks to that 'responsibility'. Imagine had Obama assumed any. . . and responded with real solutions per Arizona's many requests.
