Skip to comments.Palin: Obama 'pandering' on immigration
Posted on 06/15/2012 9:47:08 PM PDT by Bratch
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.
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.
I dont want to hijack this thread so here is the link FRiend. It has been updated and it seems that he is healing. :-)
OMG, I did not know that! Prayers up for her and her family.
Star....any update on onyx and her family?
Thank you FRiend.....and (((hugs))) as well! =)
Democrats tried to pass the Dream Act which is Amnesty for illegals. Republicans blocked it in Congress. Now Obama passes the Dream act by decree against the will of congress and of the American people. Obama is illegally aiding the invasion. This act by Obama is treason, illegal, and an injustice. Obama must be impeached. Now every 3rd world moron who is under 30 will move to America.
Mittens cannot help it, he’s gotta pander to illegals. He has no core and is without scruples. Pander, pander, pander — that’s all he knows to do. What a worthless POS he is.
Yeah damn that Romney, why he just passed the Dream Act by a dictatorial edict. That Romney is such a dictator.
Now back to reality:
Obama just passed the Dream Act by decree . Democrats tried to pass the Dream act which is Amnesty for illegals.We all fought hard to defeat it. Republicans in Congress blocked it. But now Obama passes the Dream act by edict. Now Obama became a dictator .And the media covers for it and even those here will move on to other important topics like Rodney King. The media will definitely focus on Rodney King , anything to hide the high crime Obama just committed.
The liberal media rules the U.S.A. . The media support this dictatorial act by Obma. They are statists/socialists who are for enslaving all of us.
No one is pitching a bitch about the ILLEGAL act Obama has done. The political class on both sides are considering illegal aliens as potential voters! They don't give a damn about the Constitution or rule of law; it's all situational ethics with a purely political motivation.
Can you believe the choice we have this year. The guy of started obamacare in Mass. or the guy who started it in the USA. The guy who has always been for abortion or the guy who changes his mind every four years. The guy......
Has anyone done the math on how much 800,000 less jobs will effect the unemployment number? It seems it would go up between 8.7 to 9.0. ....and thats with 800,000. But anyone can claim they are under 30 and have been here 5 years and were brought here before they were 16. I’d be surprised if there is a single Mexican under the age of 30 without an American Work Permit before November rolls in.
ummm, shall I assume you think the liberal Supreme Court Justices are the same as the conservative ones? For whatever it's worth - the liberal talking points about 'their all the same - only our guy is more likable' is bullsh*t...
