Biden: If today’s tough laws on immigration existed in the past, Obama would not be president
Washington Examiner ^ | June 20, 2013 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 06/20/2013 7:56:39 AM PDT by theruleshavechanged

“Isn’t that amazing?” Biden asked. “Barack Obama and I are now the president and vice-president of the United States of America. If we applied the same standards that we are applying today, it wouldn’t have happened.”

That's one of the best argument in favor of tough immigration laws I've heard so far.
Finally Uncle Joe got something right.

While I agree...I often wonder if these are intentional statements meant to divide and anger.

The traitors and brain dead hacks in DC are sick of this electorate, we are too rambunctious, too capitalistic and know The Constitution. They decided a while ago to bring in a more compliant electorate from Hispanic nations and the third world. One that would be grateful for the goodies and welfare the Federales hand out to buy their votes

A pig-ignorant ahistorical-oriented electorate is the best friend of the thieves in DC

What the heck is he talking about?

Obama’s father was a foreign student. He studied, hooked up with Obama’s mother, then went back home to Kenya. His father was not an immigrant to America. What does immigration law have to do with Obama’s father coming to America as a foreign student? This makes no sense, but I’m sure will be duly reported as inspirational by the liberals.

Yes. It is his and Obama’s way of twisting the knife.
They know exactly what they say. However, Biden’s complicity is one born of idiocy. Everyone but him knows he isn’t going to be the Democrat 2016 candidate for President. He deserves every fricking bit of the crow he’s going to have to eat when that happens.

Thanks, Joe. Good point. That might work well in an add next year.

Biden is Impeachment Insurance. Would we rather have a 6 year old driving the bus or no driver at all? That’s a tough one. Right now we have no driver at all (Obama).

reminding the audience that both he and the President were both the children of immigrants

Uh, Joe, Barack Senior was here on a temporary student visa and therefore not an immigrant.

It’s too late. Our current LEGAL immigration policies will make the Dems the permanent majority party—if they are not already.

Is Drunken Joe Biden saying that ICE should take note of his own origins? As in, Drunken Joe himself is an illegal alien?

We know he can't be talking about Barry the Boob, since it's now common knowledge that Barry the Boob was born in Hawaii, as shown by his birth certificate. ;-)

Biden revealed to the audience that his great-great-great grandfather came to America from Ireland in 1850. He also pointed out that President Obama’s great-great great grandfather left Ireland from the same Irish county for America.

“Isn’t that amazing?” Biden asked. “Barack Obama and I are now the president and vice-president of the United States of America. If we applied the same standards that we are applying today, it wouldn’t have happened.”

The administration's supporters speak of jobs those otherwise-illegal immigrants would do where industry titans (cronies) could count on their labor and tax payments to lower the deficit for "US persons." Those would also lower the wages of the existing middle class, decreasing our standard of living for all but the crony-elites [nomenklatura].

We know they want to give further cover to illicit voting, but I think they also intend to use these as cannon fodder against Christians and a capitalistic society (bitter clingers to guns and religion and antipathy to [communists and Islamists]).

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Before the last election jobama was ‘kept in the basement like the crazed aunt’ and when things started ‘going bad’ for BO, they wheeled jobama out and he started making foolish, outlandish statements, that - IMNSHO - were designed to take our mind OFF of BO and ‘laught’ at ‘loony Joe’.

Guess we can expect MORE pix of jobama ogling biker chicks, ordering from the childrens menu and all those ‘lovable’ things the demented relatives do.

ANYTHING to keep the attention off BO.

Was ‘amazed’ etc when the WH reported part of BO’s ‘bad speech in Germany’ was attributed to the sun glaring on his teleprompter. It is pretty sad when a ‘public figure/public speaker And a (ex)lawyer to boot can’t ‘wing it’ when his ‘task’ is supposed to be to ‘honor Americans that Gave All and are Interred in a Foreign Land’.

Yeh...because Obama is NOT an American citizen. He’s an Indonesian citizen, because he never rescinded that citizenship when he moved here.

And there’s still very much doubt if he ever WAS born here too.

Hence the reason all his school, medical, birth and other such records have been hidden and classified.

"He also pointed out that President Obama’s great-great great grandfather left Ireland from the same Irish county for America."

And how does he know that? Likely from their applications for citizenship that they got through the ...wait for it....legal immigration ports. Illegals do not have these papers or applications. (I'm sorry but...what a dim wit)

The Constitution and the Republic would be safer if that had been the case.

Things might have been quite difference if the democrat party had been outlawed in 1865 and its leadership north and south had been hanged.

Oh well, what-ifs are great but at some point the criminal National Socialist Democrat Party will have to be dealt with or the Republic is done.

I think he's referring to Obama, himself: Having been born in Kenya, Obama would not have been able to immigrate to the United States under current law. The again, who really knows how the gerbils work inside Biden's head.
