'I am not king': Obama tells Latino voters he can't conjure immigration reform alone
Los Angeles Times ^ | 10/25/10 | Michael Muskal

Posted on 10/25/2010 5:44:54 PM PDT by Nachum

The president, in a push to get out the Latino vote, says Republicans in Congress have been a stumbling block. A recent poll showed Latinos generally unenthusiastic about the coming elections.

In an effort to energize Latino voters, President Obama defended his administration’s efforts to work for a comprehensive immigration plan, while adding that he was frustrated by the failures of Congress to deal with the issue.

In an interview with Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo, recorded when Obama was in Los Angeles last week, the president blamed Republicans for refusing to work on the needed legislation. As he has in the past, Obama noted that 11 Republican senators voted for immigration reform four years ago but walked away from the issue in this midterm-election year.

King Barack the Kenyan is trying to pump up the illegal alien voters. They might sit this one out since he hasn’t given them amnesty yet.

In Nobama succession, that would be a demotion . . . Only a god is higher than a king.

Not passing terrible legislation is dealing with an issue, and Congress has dealt with this one since 2006 and before. Obama and others need to stop trying to buy future votes with US citizenship and deal with the issue by enforcing the law.

Nachum, he didn’t say “not A king.” He said “not king.”

Not using ‘a’ is Freudian.

Latinos best understand that if they don’t get on the side of the Republicans, they loose. Democrats will use them as often as they can, as long as they are willing to let them. If they keep the Democratic politicians in charge in California, nothing will change for them.

In FACT Obama and his dem majority House and his 11 GOP Senators coulda just done it, in the previous two years.

Then they alone woulda owned it.

And in FACT the dems don’t want that result.

They want to be able to say it was bipartisan (downside avoidance) but they led (upside credit with hispanics).

Enforce the law. IMHO the failure to come to terms with massive illegal immigration has profoundly undermined the authority of the government and rule of law on every front in this country. People see the cynical calculations on this issue and are loosing what little moral authority the govt has left.

In any case there must be an absolutely secure border before the issue of the millions of illegals already in the country can even be discussed in this or any possible universe. They don’t just want an amnesty for a few illegals they want permanent open borders. The politics of bad faith. Our border is wide open. Mexico is descending into chaos even faster then we are. Drugs. Violence. Organized crime. Mass migrations of illegals.

This nation is being led by men and woman who care NOTHING for the life and death of its citizens let alone their will in this matter.

Not a King? Not for the lack of trying

Precisely. . .'on the mark'.

No 'tween the lines' here. Plain, up front, per what is Obama's Second Wish. . .

Clearly; Obama does protest TOO much, his lack of 'total power'.

We have here, a text book classic, psychopathic, narcissistic, 'dictator' as in totalitarian wannabe. . .and the typical 'why cannot you understand. . .how better your life would be - if only. . .

Save for the stupid people - of God, guns and Country. . .

ObaMao is the most destructive to the republic of any president in American history. He even called those who sdisagreeed with his policy ENEMIES! Can you imagine that? A president of the United States calling tens of millions of Americans the enemy? This guy is the absolute worst.

Since he had a majority of senators and representatives in the Senate and house, there was no way the Republicans could block anything, and they didn’t. If something was blocked it was because some Dems jumped ship. I don’t know why the republicans are not screaming about these lies day and night.

That's entirely true, actually they have no moral authority, only the authority that comes with their positions. And their reckless and irresponsible fiscal shenanigans puts them into a serious deficit of moral authority. After this election, the Tea Party movement and others need to elevate immigration enforcement to their top few reasons for outrage and become much more vocal about it.

Whoever is in Congress in January, citizens will have to watch them like hawks and start working on the next members who need to be ousted.

I think the key in getting traction on the immigration issue is breaking the matter up into its logical parts. Step #1 is building an effective border fence and ensuring that the legal and law enforcement foundations for preventing future illegal immigration are firmly in place. Obviously this is the ultimate case of closing the barn door after the cow has escaped but its an absolutely necessary first step.

Its amazing how utterly "issue free" the public sphere has become in this country. All cynical name calling and mud slinging. Fiddling while Rome burns. All the real issues are just ignored.

In a very real way that is why we are in the mess we are in now. Forcing the debate back onto the actual issues is not only essential in and of itself but the key to future electoral success.
