Obama's immigration ploy gains him nada

To help smother the dismal reviews of his economic reset speech last week in Cleveland, President Obama scheduled a last-minute Rose Garden appearance Friday morning to add some presidential heft to his executive order about immigration.

Whenever he's in trouble, the one-time Real Good Talker throws another speech out there. Until this spring's troubles, everybody always said speaking was his strong suit. His Fidel Castro-length economic remarks blamed Europe, Congress and the usual Texan for the nation's re-sinking economy.

But -- are you sitting down? -- it contained no new ideas. He's still waiting for Congress to do something, you see.

So, the 6,300 words ended up merely calling more sustained attention to the administration's idea bankruptcy, to the dim outlook for job improvements and to how bad the economy remains, despite all the promises more than 700 days ago of a magnificent Recovery Summer. Two-thirds of Americans remain convinced their country is still mired in recession.

So, to change the subject quickly, Obama's Friday schedule was amended for him to get some news coverage about what he'd already told Homeland Security to do: Permit illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children to remain here under certain conditions, not including citizenship.

The Kenyan is desperately grasping at straws to cling to his power, we saw that BIG time today.

I think the EP claim is going to be the stun that starts his undoing - he now has to explain and justify it, and there is really no way he can do that without incriminating himself.

So long, Barry, nice to know ya!

He will go down as the biggest threat to Liberty America has ever faced, and the most inept occupant of the Oval Office. I believe that it will be proven that he is not qualified under the provisions of The Constitution, but this will be kept hushed up, much like the facts of JFK’s assasination.

He lost big with his ploy, mostly because the coverage of the reporter’s question (which quickly disappeared from “news” once they realized it resonated with Americans). Whatever pandering he wants to do with the millions of Hispanic “replacement Americans”, it won’t be enough to offset the votes lost by voters who can now see more than ever that he has no idea what is happening in the job market in this country, and he has no understanding of what average Americans have been dealing with for years at this point.

November is going to be an opportunity for every real American to go into a voting booth, and bitch-slap this foreign communist Muslim onto the unemployment line. Every election held since his ascension to the throne indicates this is going to happen in a landslide.
