To call for immigration reform implies there is something wrong with the current laws. The existing laws are fine; rather, it’s a failure to enforce the laws which is a problem.

Wasn’t immigration reform promised in hope, version 1.0 (2008)? I thought around late summer of 2010....this came up for about two weeks via the media and the Democratic leadership, and they just admitted that they couldn’t pass it (this was when they still had a majority in the Congress).

Seems foolish to promise it again...when you know you can’t get a another majority in the Congress.

Yes, but this time the 0bama0 says, “He, don’t worry. The check’s in the mail.”

Anybody willing to believe that doesn’t deserve a second chance.

Ethnically speaking, Africans and Latinos are enemies in this country.

Only the tiny minority of Leftards from either ancestry is in apparent agreement, even though they secretly hate eachother’s guts.

It is very clear to anyone paying attention that Obozo believes he can be reelected by the DUMB SHEEPLE that reside in the USA. He ain't going after people that think with their brains - he has no record.

This is nothing more than an American Idol contest.

Barack Hussein Obama agenda for 2nd term:

1. Amnesty to 28 million illegals so they can vote in future elections.

2. Abortion on demand, and FREE to any one at any time.
If the fetus is born live, the abortionist can kill it
(that is the law Obama sponsored in Illinois legislature)

3. All gun owners must register and pay a hefty annual fee to keep the gun.

4. All taxes will be paid by people making over $50,000.
People making less than $25,000 will get a check.

5. Free healthcare, free contraception, rent allowance, food stamps to 50 million, free breakfast & lunch at schools, rent subsidies, heat subsidy, free college to poor, free transport to poor, free translators for non-English speaking, free daycare for poor children, and the list goes on.

6. Military to be cut 10% every year. We do not need to be stronger than our enemies.

7. No ID will be required to vote.

8. 3 new justices to replace retiring, Van Jones, Bill Ayers and Anita Hill.

And their “demands” are going to be HUGE once Barry amnestitizes them. Union membership will skyrocket and Americans are going to have to do the jobs that they didn’t want to do. These illegal aliens aren’t going to come cheap. Americans are going to pay bigtime for this. More than they are paying now.

We aren’t supposed to think about that.

We’re supposed to act like liberals and look the other way when our guys are no different than theirs.

Bring it on now Hoss. Let’s see what you have in mind.

If Obama couldn't get the immigration and illegal alien issue solved in 2009 when he and the Democrats were the majority, it will be impossible in 2013 even if he is reelected.
Sorry but Obama is spreading more of the Bovine Scatology.

Funny, I remember W and John McCain trying to push "comprehensive immigration reform" and Democrats wouldn't help and then Obama got elected and ... Democrats wouldn't do it then either.

Why should Obama be believed?

If there is proof Prince Noobama of Kenya was actually born in Kenya, we better find it and find it fast because I don’t think RINOmney stands a chance against that guy. All Noobama has to say in a debate is “But Gov. Romney, you did the same exact thing you are now criticizing me for.” Repub-elities effed up massively pushing that idiot as the nominee. The only thing that’s going to prevent the Marxist Muslim doing a 2nd term now is solid proof he’s a foreigner or some miracle candidate suddenly showing up, otherwise we are headed towards another civil war which is going to make the first one look like a pillow fight.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA

More brazen vote pimping!
If he had intended to do anything he would have done it when he first got into office.

I hope people aren't fooled again.

Under the move, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice will review and clear out low-priority cases from 300,000 backlogged deportation proceedings.

Continued focus of immigration enforcement on those with criminal records would effectively leave alone those who came at a young age and have spent years in the United States.

Republican critics say directing immigration authorities to use prosecutorial discretion to administratively implement such changes ignores Congress and existing federal law.

Obama pledges immigration reform early in 2nd term

Best or worst news, depending on your spot on the IQ curve, or geographical location (outside the U.S.)

First of all, we now have three years of hard unequivocal experience.

No pledge by that horse's south end is worth a bucketful of spit. Whether due to incompetence or design is irrelevant.

Delivering an immigration reform speech in a foreign country borders on treason.

We now know beyond reasonable doubt what he meant by "Change."
Quadrupling the National Debt.
Unemployment not seen since the Great Depression."
Inflation not ever seen for decades, increase in the price of necessities not included in the official "Cost of Living."
Increases in taxes, but only for working Americans.
More than doubling the number of government employment at all levels (GSA abuse, anyone?)
Doubling the number of parasites on food stamps and other government "entitlements."
Attempting to redefine the English Language. Among the abused and perverted words : Insurance; investment; Fairness; Justice; unprecedented; unique; obligation; duty; truth.

From my perspective, his chances of reelection are somewhere between zero and minus 1. In fact if it was up to me, he would be impeached for criminal incompetence.

I’m with Sarah-

I believe a first Mitt term will be better for the nation than a second Obama term.

I agree....but it will also empower GOPE to continue pushing liberal/socialists like Mutt in the GOP while keeping conservatives out of power.

The rookie has about six long months to go. Why not just do half of it?
