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.
And, these people are not immigrants they are criminals, also breaking the law.
We certainly do have a mess. In order to avoid confusion amongst the shallow minded public schooled American population we need to take it one step at a time.
Usurping Congress should be the issue here. It's not the first time Obama has done it and it will NOT be the last. What's next?
Another thing to keep in mind. It's more than pandering. It's another trick to get the economy OUT OF the news. There was the "Republican War On Women" then "War Against Gays" and now the "Republican War On 'Immigrants'".
Until we get the pResident to prove his own citizenship we are ALL Americans until proven otherwise. So, who are we to tell an Illegal they cannot live in this country when we may have one living in the White House? It's a non-starter. Tied in with the economy it may cost Obama more votes than he hoped to gain.
The REAL issue is not what Obama did but HOW he did it. And that's what we should focus on. The executive order protects those illegals until we can prove that it's not a legal move a pResident can make.
Neither am I. Especially is John Boehner is leader of the House and worse if the Democrats win control of it.
John Boehner will be kissing the feet we're trying to hold. Everything Romney wants will be rubber stamped by Boehner.
There is no doubt... you are 100% correct!
God, how I hate that both parties set out to destroy this woman as a viable Presidential candidate, it was Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas and Dan Quayle all rolled into one big stinking pile of self-serving BS.
She speaks for me. I’d not just vote for her in a heartbeat but proudly, for the first time since my first Presidential vote for Ronald Reagan.
Unemployment is over 8%.
DEFLECT TO FUNDRAISING.
Holder is about to get cited for Contempt of Congress.
DEFLECT TO IMMIGRATION
Get the picture?
Complete, concise and CORRECT response. Way to go, Sarah. Again.
Sarah is ahead of the pack, AGAIN-Ping
You know that Sarah called those illegal immigrants actually illegal in this interview? Not undocumented workers or undocumented Americans but illegal
It is not surprising.
Romney doesn’t like conservatives, and does what he can to lie, distort and destroy those that get in his way.
He also doesn’t like people who are prettier than he is.
please add me to Sarah Palin’s ping list ...
can you help me with a list of those links ? “thanks” ...
Wasn’t McCain and the Left. Was Romney handlers then and now.
Mitt was the puppet-master in the 2008 sabotage-Palin campaign.
Where is Onyx? Is she okay?
I’m so glad she is our Sarah! She holds no punches, tells it like it is and she is a WONDERFUL breath of fresh air in this “becoming more and more crappy” world of ours.
God Bless America......PLEASE!
Good question. Her grandson Brady was in a terrible accident and fighting for his life earlier in the week but I haven’t seen any updates. Brady, Onyx, Brady’s father (also injured but not life threatening) and their entire family has been in my prayers.
