Obama: I've got 'five years' left to solve immigration
Politico44 ^ | 2/23/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 02/23/2012 11:28:49 AM PST by ColdOne

In an interview with Univision Radio, President Obama said that he has 'five years' left in his presidency to figure out issues like comprehensive immigration reform. Striking a confident note about his reelection prospects, Obama assured a largely Hispanic audience that he has not given up on getting an immigration bill done — one that would provide a pathway to citizenship.

"My presidency is not over," Obama told Univision's Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo "I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done."

Obama also said that Hispanic voters would ultimately face an easy choice in deciding between him and the Republican nominee in November — emphasizing his support for comprehensive immigration reform and a pathway to citizenship.

Cool. Call your representative when you figure it out, BO.

Hopefully he'll be the kind who actually votes up or down on important issues like immigration.

If he can do that while back in the job title of a Chicago Community Organizer, then good for him.

One of two things are evident here:

1) He’s either absolutely deluded into thinking he’s going to get re-elected.

OR

2) He knows for whatever reason that it’s in the bag and he’s got no worries (as in he KNOWS there’s gonna be fraud/fixing and there’s nothing We The People can do about it).

Which one’s more likely?

Please don’t try to “solve” anything because anything you “solve” makes the problem worse. JUST GO.

Here is my blessing for you ( with apologies to Fiddler on the Roof ) :

“May God bless and keep Barry...far away from us.”

Simple, electron brain:

Enforce the existing laws on the books.

I know they don’t teach some crucial fundamentals of American law at Harvard, but that IS your clearly stated Constitutional function.

Deportations of hair dryers from Mexico, that is.

This Psy-Ops ‘power of suggestion’ thing is wearing thin on me. Nancy Pelosi is the queen of such tactics. Unfortunately, half of America thinks they now must vote for 0bama simply because he predicts he’ll get re-elected.

Striking a confident note about his reelection prospects

Yeah right! Can you imagine what the MSM would be saying had George W. Bush said this? They would be screaming about the sheer arrogance of assuming victory before a vote was cast and saying how this was going to turn off independents and swing voters.

When he is defeated in November, perhaps they will deport his silly backside with his borther, or uncle, or aunt, or whatever...and then he can solve it from the other side.

” He KNOWS there’s gonna be fraud/fixing and there’s nothing We The People can do about it” “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” Or, “If you want to hear him laugh even louder, tell him how much you know. ” Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. Proverbs 27:1 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’ Luke 12:20

0bama has no intention of leaving the White House. EVER. He will start a war with Iran soon, declare a national emergency, cancel the election and hide in the new ‘underground White House’ currently under construction. The government also yesterday announced upcoming security procedures where the Capitol, it’s staff and all Congressional members can be quickly isolated from public exposure at a moment’s notice. More bunkers, gates, impenetrable steel walls to protect our insurgent government as they steal America away from WE THE PEOPLE who are now powerless to do anything about it.

We knew he was good when he tabulated each state in the union and came up with 57, but we didn’t know he was THIS good.

Easy, Sparky. SLOWLY enter the forum. I don’t know if Obama will or won’t play stupid like that, but because I cannot do much if he does, I proceed like the election will be free and fair.

I guess it is a hopeful sign that he intends to abide by the 22nd amendment, even though he treats the rest of the Constitution with contempt. To run for a third term would require amending the Constitution, and even all-out use of the race card won’t get 3/4 of the states to ratify repeal of the 22nd in time to benefit him.

The 57 states reference is worse than bad math, it's a Freudian slip. There are 57 states in the Organization of Islamic Confgerence.

BO is going to live the life of luxury for the rest of his life. while the people he “helped”, especially their children, will be in far worse shape in the long run then they would have been had they never elected him in the first place.

Oh please, you give that dumba$$ skinny little like punk WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY more credit than he deserves. Do you really think he wants to hide in some secret WH beneath the WH? Who would feed his malignant narcissism? Also, how big is DC? How many people in the government in DC? Now how many people in the US? Do you seriously think the military would stand by him? You have to assume that for your plan to work. Sure, some will, most won’t. If a handful of people in DC can steal a country from 300+ MILLION, then the millions deserve what they get.

Another five years? His math skills stink.

The illegals are still all over northern NJ, and at this rate we’ll be 50% Hispanic in five years. If you don’t believe me go to any maternity ward; for all intents and purposes Americans (of any color) have stopped breeding. The “graying of America” is being replaced by the “bronzing of America”.

Of course the military would NOT stand by him, YET.. HENCE, THE NEED FOR A BUNKER with a command and control center wired to the other Marxist thugs in control of Capitol Hill. By the way, the CHANGES currently underway in our military are designed precisely to turn the military against US. Whose side do YOU think the generals with gay agendas will be on HUH? Surely not yours or mine. It’s all part of the “CHANGE”, remember?

P.S. That “dumba$$ skinny little punk” to whom you refer has practically destroyed America in UNDER 4 YEARS. I wouldn’t give him “credit” for doing it but I would surely BLAME HIM FOR IT.
