LAS VEGAS Sarah Palin on Friday condemned President Barack Obamas new immigration policy as both unconstitutional and cravenly political.
Hes absolutely pandering to a specific demographic that no doubt polls have shown he would be helped in this demographic if he just makes this move, the former Alaska governor told POLITICO late Friday as she left the Venetian hotel after a speech to the RightOnline conference. And I say that because all of President Obamas actions are based on polls that are provided him that would lead him to believe he can garner support for his reelection bid.
She decried the executive order declared Friday as amnesty that violates Congresss constitutional right to pass laws.
Our president still doesnt understand the three branches of government, she said. He thinks he can usurp the Congressional branch of our government and dictate and mandate a policy like this.
The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee said it will make the borders more porous.
She took umbrage about an explanation she read in the press that said the law would only affect law-abiding illegal immigrants.
That is a contradiction right there, she said in the interview. I think we need to characterize it and describe it more accurately. Its called illegal for a reason.
THIS is the proper response.
Damn McCain & the Left for ruining Palin’s chances of being President.
That, and our joke of a legal system in this country.
That’s because Sarah has something Mitt does’t have. Actually she has a pair of something Mitt doesn’t have. Can you guess what that is?
If Mitt wants to win he needs to take the gloves off and fight like he really wants to win. He keeps trying to be a nice guy ... in politics, nice guys never win.
Mitts “prevent defense” as they use to say “prevents you from winning” in the end. He thinks he can ride out the clock
I do not have to guess... she has BRASS BALLS that would fill a number 9 wash tub.
Precise and concise...
Do you think she was set up?
Gov. Palin is doing exactly as she said she would. She is supporting Constitutional conservatives. She is an articulate spokeswoman for conservative values. She will continue speaking truth to power until the convention.
By doing so, she will force Romney to take positions, either pulling him to the right or if I’m right, allowing him to define himself as an acceptable alternate to Obama for disgruntled Democrats.
By convention time we will have a clear picture of Romney’s Republicanism and Palin’s. It will be up to the delegates to decide if Romney represents most Republican voters and how badly they want to commit suicide by staying on the Romney express.
We have a list of links around here from conservative reporters in 2008 saying that the anonymous sources in the McVain camp that were ripping and telling lies on Sarah came from staffers of Romney absorbed into the campaign because they wanted to bring Sarah down for Romneys future ambitions
Of course he’s “pandering.” And as the Democrats seek to block the purging of voter lists it’s perfectly clear why: votes, votes, votes!
And all of those votes illegal.
But, then, who cares? Certainly not the Attorney General, for whom the word “illegal” is not an item of vocabulary.
The message the Democrats are sending to the nation is clear: Hey, if you can’t win according to the law, cheat!
And the Republicans are just rolling over and sleeping through the whole thing.
The left and pro-Amnesty crowd just love that we use their term "immigration" when discussing "illegals"
WE are the results of immigration.
Illegals are the results of breaking and entering.
This is not an issue of immigration.
He is doing much more than “pandering”, he is breaking the law.
And, these people are not “immigrants” they are criminals, also breaking the law.
Romney blows in the wind and when there's no wind gravity tends to pull him leftward.
He is no conservative. That's for sure. I do think he can be pulled to the right with the right people leading Congress. John Boehner is NOT that man. Bad idea to have both Romney in the WH and John Boehner as the leader of the House.
John Boehner has a way of blocking the wind of the people and allowing the President to walk all over us.
