Skip to comments.Obama: I'll get immigration reform done next year

President Obama says he is "confident" that, if reelected, he will oversee passage of immigration reform next year, in part because Republicans will have an interest in reaching out to a growing Latino voting bloc they have "alienated" in recent years.
Mr. Obama made the comment in an off-the-record phone conversation with the publisher and editor of the Des Moines Register days ahead of that newspaper's scheduled announcement of an endorsement in the presidential race. After the Register's editor publicly argued that the 30-minute conversation should be available to all voters, the Obama campaign released the transcript.
"The second thing I'm confident we'll get done next year is immigration reform," Mr. Obama told the newspaper. "And since this is off the record, I will just be very blunt. Should I win a second term, a big reason I will win a second term is because the Republican nominee and the Republican Party have so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the Latino community. And this is a relatively new phenomenon. George Bush and Karl Rove were smart enough to understand the changing nature of America. And so I am fairly confident that they're going to have a deep interest in getting that done. And I want to get it done because it's the right thing to do and I've cared about this ever since I ran back in 2008."

Well, we know how much “flexibility” Obama would have in a second term. Basically, he would operate with total impunity, trampling Congress and the Constitution.
He is on a roll after his spectacular success lowering sea levels. Next he will promise to stop earthquakes, repel hurricanes and prevent volcanoes from erupting.
“...if reelected, he will oversee passage of immigration reform next year...”
And more cake and candy for FAT kids...and more alcohol for alcoholics...and more pot for lazy basement dwelling freeloaders...and more TAX PAYER DOLLARS for lazy welfare recipients...and more abortions, and more gay marriage, and more bail outs, and more spending on failed green jobs, and more radical communists and socialists in the white house. And all while being unopposed and unaffected by voter opinion and with a wink and nod for the press corpse(/s).
New odumbo campaign slogan: “more of everything for everyone for free”
He was going to close Gitmo “next year”, when the year was 2008.
There is only one thing you can't have for free: Your Freedom.
The Kenyan is desperate
“There is only one thing you can’t have for free: Your Freedom.”
How Obama ? You won’t be in office.
I bet! Translation: Amnesty. If 0bama steals the election, he'll rule like a dictator and to paraphrase him: "after his election he will have more flexibility".
