Obama: End Shutdown So We Can Pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform (double backstab?)
Brietbart ^ | 10/12/212 | Tony Lee

Posted on 10/12/2013 2:19:42 PM PDT by amnestynone

In his weekly radio address on Saturday, President Barack Obama said the government shutdown needed to end so Congress could work on comprehensive immigration reform. Obama rejected a House Republican proposal that would have re-opened the government and raised the debt-ceiling for six-weeks in return for an agreement on a "framework" on negotiations on more long-term budgetary issues. He said "this Republican shutdown" had to end "because there is so much else we should be focusing our energies on right now" and cited immigration as one of the things the government had to "fix." "We’ve got to create more jobs, and kids to educate, and an immigration system to fix," Obama said. Obama has recently said that comprehensive immigration reform was his "number-one priority." On Monday, his administration allowed thousands of pro-amnesty protesters to use the National Mall, which was supposed to be closed due to the shutdown, for their rally. The Obama administration has barricaded other open-air spaces like the World War II Memorial.

Keep the government shut down, they cannot do amnesty for illegal aliens. Sounds like a good plan.

No, more like 5 times (immigration, debt limit, leave O-care along, no debt or spending reductions, new tax increases)

I’m sure Bonehead, Cantor and McConnell are ready to bend over
again. They must like it, because they bend over frequently.

The government can’t reopen if the Zero King refuses to “negotiate” and rejects everything the Congress proposes. Repubs need a stiff spine and not give the idiot everything he wants and expects. Let him whine and cry some more.

I guess fixing the nation’s economy that is 17 trillion dollars in debt and getting tens of millions of unemployed Americans back to work isn’t a big priority compared to giving legal status to illegal aliens. Wow, I’m glad to know that Washington is on top of the things that really matter to the American people.

I'm so angry about this "deal". How is it a negotiation if one side gets everything and the other side gets nothing but the blame? I'm actually relieved O turned it down. What the hell s wrong with the jelly spined, lily livered, mush brained idiots we call Republicans? The idea here is to spend LESS money!

Also, I'm sorry to say it, but California just created de facto amnesty with driver's licenses for illegals. We have such a large percentage of them here, and others will come here just for the license. They have to have them to sign up for California Care, dontcha know.

Your statement is true but an oxymoron of sorts.
Because the problems you list can only be solved by SHRINKING the government. Will government shrink itself?
NO!! We need to win some elections first! Conservatives blew 4 senate seats by nominating Akin, Mourdock, Sharon Angle and what’s her face in Delaware. All those senate seats were winnable with better candidates, even if they were not pure. Instead we got Reid for majority leader.

As we’ve seen today with the EBT “glitch” we have an entire sub-class that has to be fed, housed, educated and now medicated at the expense of the productive class.
But that isn’t enough for Barry, Juan, Bush & Co. They want to saddle us with Mexico’s ‘deadheads’ as well.
Keep it shutdown! They’re cheaper if we pay them for sitting on their collective azzes.

Obama: "there is so much else we should be focusing our energies on right now" and cited immigration as one of the things the government had to "fix."

Actually Boehner and McCain would agree with that statement.

Clearly an upside to the “shut-down” (which really isn’t).

Energy focused on protecting the badly mis-named “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010” is energy and concentration that is not available for promoting amnesty.

Note to the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut - you ain’t got all that much political capital left.

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

[but he’s not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]

I am sooo happy we have a president that supports illegal mexicans who rape 9 month old babies to DEATH and 93 year old grandmothers. Doesn’t that make you feel warm all over?

Don’t forget the ones who booze it up and run down nuns and other assorted citizens!

Happy Happy Happy!

I guess there are enough IGNORANT SLUTS in the con-gress who support it to.

Sorry to you ignorant sluts out there but I don’t want to diss whores.

Why do you congressman support the raping of babies and old women by illegal aliens who broke into this country. I bet if it was your house they broke into and raped to death one of your family members you would think differently, OR WOULD YOU? Sometimes we wonder what it would take.

Or are you just getting PAID too much to care?

I don’t know of any Republicans that are against legal immigration. But too often the term legal immigration means legalizing millions of Mexicans (mostly) that are here illegally.

That is true Obama is stabbing us in the front. I meant that the GOP leadership is stabbing us in the back. Everyone on this thread misinterpreted my backstabbing remark. I just think that maybe (just maybe) the GOP leaership will stop promoteing amnesty just to keepus peasants from revolting.

How more comprehensive could it be than to place a moratorium on all immigration until the US can stop borrowing money from foreign countries to take care of the citizens now inhabiting America? Overhaul of our immigration laws and policies is the key to cleaning up a lot of the corruption that has saturated our political parties. The Obamacare takeover of our health care system is another magnet which will be used to bring in more fraudulent votes for the traitors now in control of this Republic. Not a lot of upside to giving Obama more leverage to use against the citizens of this country.
