Obama: Being American is Not a Matter of Blood or Birth
New York Post ^ | July 1, 2010 | Staff

Posted on 07/02/2010 9:35:19 AM PDT by lbryce

President Barack Obama said Thursday that being American “is not a matter of blood or birth,” but said that “no matter how decent” the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. are, they should be held accountable for breaking the law.

Speaking at the American University School of International Service in Washington D.C., Obama expressed an understanding for why states would pass individual anti-illegal immigration laws, but said taking such action is “ill conceived.”

The president said laws, such as the one signed by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer in April, are “divisive,” put pressure on local law enforcement, burden state and local budgets and could potentially violate the rights of innocent American citizens and legal residents.

The Obama administration has come out against Arizona’s immigration law, which requires police officers to question a person’s immigration status if there is reasonable suspicion that the person is in the country illegally. The law takes effect July 29.

Obama said Thursday that while America has always defined itself as a nation of immigrants, and while the “overwhelming majority” of illegal immigrants come to the U.S. in search of a better life, “The presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are going through the process of immigration legally.”

“Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its borders and set laws for residency and citizenship,” he said. “And no matter how decent they are, no matter their reasons, the 11 million who broke these laws should be held accountable.”

Who is this fetid pile of Satan droppings, this fecal OBAMAnation, this blasphemous incarnation of America's worst nightmare to dare define what is or is not American?
Not by blood, not by birth, you say? by what then? Falsified documents?

For what you are doing to America,laying waste this this great glorious land of ours endowed by divine countenance as shining city upon the hill, I say to you
Damn you, Obama, damn you forever in hell!

Obama speaks as if he’s not a real American.

Well, whatever he is, he refuses to produce his Long Form Birth Certificate with doctor and hospital of record.

Why is that, if there’s no problem?

For him it’s not even a state of mind.

The Mexican government encourages Mexicans living in America to vote in both nations’ elections.

“being American “is not a matter of blood or birth”

It’s sure as hell not a matter of crawling over the border illegally either!

About those Obama comments that we MUST have a ‘guest worker’ program...

Obama said yesterday that we NEED a guest worker program & amnesty!)

“NEW PERMANENT & TEMPORARY WORK PERMITS — 160,000 PER MONTH

951,247

That is the number of PERMANENT work permits given in the form of green cards to working-age immigrants over the 12-month period.

(SOURCE: U.S. Office of Immigration Statistics) “

Another quote from Obama, “The United States is not defined by its borders.”

???

How exactly is a nation defined except by the space it uniquely occupies?
To Obama, who has a foreigner’s point of view on our country, he is engaged in some social scientist socialist experiment.

The United States is the exception. Our liberties and freedoms are unique. We can quickly fall to third world status and civil war.

Obama is a post-American world order president. He’s a symbol of Americans willing to self destruct and cede sovereignty to some née global order.

Republicans, too, controlled by corporate interest and greed engaged in a stand down order to allow the slow invasion of our country from the southern border.

Not once has Zero or the MSM pointed out the HUGE unemployment of American citizens isnprecisely because those 10-20 million jobs are filled by illegals.

All it takes to be an American is to be born in the Western Hemisphere. If you want to be a citizen of the United States, it takes being born in the U.S., or granted U.S. citizenship through legal process. It’s that last part that The One wants to manipulate. The Democrat Party DESPERATELY NEEDS the illegal alien vote...otherwise, short of martial law and a cancelled election this fall, they’re TOAST.

but (Zero) said that “no matter how decent” the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. are, they should be held accountable for breaking the law.

Well, then...let's see Obama start with his Auntie from Africa...wherever she now is hiding here illegally. Of course, not really hiding...she probably is working, living in a rent compensated apartment, and getting food stamps. Let's see Obama hold her accountable for breaking the law before he acts on any of the rest of the illegals. Give us an example, oh wise one! Practice what you preach for a change.

And, Obama, don't slough it off on local officials and other courts. You told us they should be held accountable...just how accountable does that mean? Paying a fine, serving jail time, being sent back...what does being "held accountable" really mean? Sounds like more empty words that you spout without any intention of doing anything or believing them yourself. Just your twisted double talk that you have practiced all your life (like the liar you are) and for which you are so famous. So typical.

Sad state of affairs that it took 25 posts before this point was brought up. If it takes that long on a place like FR, then how can we hope for an uninformed person to even have the thought cross their TV addled mind?

I wonder how many illegal “immigrants” have come into this country since we applied for immigrant visas for my wife’s brother and sister over 10 years ago. We are in the final stages, though it could go south due to financial guarantees. Yep, we have to guarantee that they won’t go on the dole unless they’ve worked for 10 years or become citizens. I should have bought them tickets to Mexico and given them cab fare from there.

Get good and angry and remove this vermin from the White House...keep focused, have a plan, and unite with like minded people who will support and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC. Remember November..work toward victory through the election of conservatives locally and state-wide..a vote for a conservative senator is a vote for us all, no matter where we live. Support them with funds, go door to door and get the word out. Become involved in the voting process, be a poll watcher, and have a plan in place to deal with any acts of intimidation. REMEMBER, THE COMMUNISTS IN THE WHITE HOUSE WORK NIGHT AND DAY TOWARD THE DESTRUCTION OF THIS COUNTRY AS WE KNOW IT...THEY HAVE BEEN PLANNING FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY FOR YEARS. PUT AWAY THE ELECTRONICS, GET OFF YOUR DUFFS AND JOIN OTHERS WHO ARE WORKING TO REMOVE THESE VERMIN FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. COMMUNISTS PLAY FOR KEEPS, AND SO MUST WE. BE PRO-ACTIVE AND NOT REACTIVE. WE ARE AT WAR, AND IF WE ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL IN NOVEMBER, THIS COUNTRY IS DOOMED.

being American “is not a matter of blood or birth,”

This is a phrase dropped to create an impression just like the style in which his books were packaged, to get his audience to forget about insignificant things like birth credentials. It’s all about him. Then after being excused in the minds of his believers he shifts back to ‘other’ illegals in his ‘above it all’ aire, “...they should be held accountable for breaking the law”. Vintage Clinton, say one thing in a clause, finish the sentence with a contradiction, committing to nothing.

All of you people are completely wrong and unrealistic. You see, for Obama to say that being an American is a matter of blood or place of birth would be like the pot calling the kettle “black.”

Oops, I must be a RAAAAAAACIST (and ask me if I give a rat’s arse if anyone thinks that I am).

While I detest Obama, and realize what he’s doing, we should consider what makes an American. Are only those that are born here Americans. Some of the most patriotic committed Americans that I have met are naturalized.

What is good, though, is that Obama is actually speaking about the BC controversy.

The political heat is forcing him to address it.

And the BC controversy is the main reason he wants the power to shut down the internet.

You can take that to the bank.
