Skip to comments.President Obama Is No Transcender—He's The Divider In Chief
Posted on 05/03/2012 5:39:48 PM PDT by Kaslin
Poor Solicitor General Donald Verrilli. Once again he's been pilloried for fumbling a historic Supreme Court case. First shredded for his "train wreck" defense of ObamaCare's individual mandate, he is now blamed for the defenestration in oral argument of Obama's challenge to the Arizona immigration law.
The law allows police to check the immigration status of someone stopped for other reasons. Verrilli claimed that constitutes an intrusion on the federal monopoly on immigration enforcement. He was pummeled. Why shouldn't a state help the federal government enforce the law?
"You can see it's not selling very well," said Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
But Verrilli never had a chance. This was never a serious legal challenge in the first place. It was confected (and timed) purely for political effect, to highlight immigration as a campaign issue with which to portray Republicans as anti-Hispanic.
Hispanics are just the beginning, however. The entire Obama campaign is a slice-and-dice operation, pandering to one group after another, particularly those that elected Obama in 2008 blacks, Hispanics, women, young people and for whom the thrill is now gone.
What to do? Try fear. Create division, stir resentment, by whatever means necessary bogus court challenges, dead-end Senate bills and a forest of straw men.
Why else would the Justice Department challenge the Texas photo ID law? To charge the GOP with seeking to disenfranchise Hispanics and blacks, of course. But in 2008 the Supreme Court upheld a similar Indiana law. It wasn't close: 6-3, the majority including venerated liberal John Paul Stevens.

Besides being the Divider in Chief Obama is a bully and a braggart, a pretender and prevaricator.
The people know they’ve been hoodwinked.
I had to read the title to your post twice. I thought it said “transgender”. ;-)
Oh my, I misread your title. I thought it said Transgender.
LOL! At first look I thought the title said transgender.
But when he says things like "unity" or "empathy", he's lying, because he believes in neither.
He's the sadistic zookeeper. Get all the different animals in a cage, and poke them with a stick, get them all fighting with each other. Then, offer to come in and be the Savior. It's what statists do.

If I recall Krauthammer in 2008 said Obama had a first class temperament. Better late than never, but I’ll never understand how people like Krauthammer and Noonan failed to see Obama for what he was back in 2008.
I’m making a bumper sticker....
“FIRE THE LIAR” Obama
Their environment is an echo chamber, easy to get on the bandwagon. Much harder to be a fly in the ointment. That’s one thing I like about Pat Buchanan. I might not agree with him always, but he doesn’t seem to give a rat’s *** what anyone thinks of him.
somehow, I first read this as “transgender” and almost doubled over...
