GOP left Obama no choice but to act on immigration (CNN editorial)
CNN ^ | July 3, 2014 | Maria Cardona

Posted on 07/06/2014 9:22:47 AM PDT by Innovative

Since Republicans in Congress refuse to do their job and allow a vote on comprehensive immigration reform this year, Obama, on behalf of the American people, is acting on his own to address this important issue -- for the well-being of our country, our economy and the immigrant community that has contributed so much to our economic growth and prosperity and is suffering greatly from a badly broken system.

Pure horse manure. It is Obama, the liar, who has done nothing.

Only if one considers it the job of Congress to rubberstamp whatever the tyrant wants.

Calvin Coolidge speaks against radical change in his Independence day speech from July 5th 1926.

Under a system of popular government there will always be those who will seek for political preferment by clamoring for reform. While there is very little of this which is not sincere, there is a large portion that is not well informed. In my opinion very little of just criticism can attach to the theories and principles of our institutions. There is far more danger of harm than there is hope of good in any radical changes.

Speech on the 150th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence: Calvin Coolidge July 5, 1926

Coolidge was confronting the progressives of his day and the whole speech is really quite Amazing in how timeless it is.

Congress is acting by not changing the law. Until such time as the law is changed Obama is required by the Constitution and his oath of office to enforce the law as it now stands.

Tell me one thing that will be “fixed” or “reformed” when they have their amnesty.

We all always have choices. “The Republicans made the president do it”is the penultimate victim mentality.

Uh, Obama chose to ignore existing immigration laws. He would no doubt do the same with any new legislation. What, then, is the point?

What’s Kon-sty-two-shun?

We don’t do Kon-sty-two-shun here. It’s racist, sexist and homophobic.

Besides we have a greater good.

Now shut your bigoted faces and go pay your taxes. These people coming over the border in violation of your laws need the money. :)

No choice?
Funny, the law still says it is against the law to be here illegally, and the oath of office for President STILL says to faithfully execute the laws.
So NO, CNN, Zero doesn’t HAVE to do anything but UPHOLD THE LAWS ALREADY IN EXISTENCE.

Why the h*!! does no one confront this CNN bimbo and ask her about the Harry Reid embargo on every bill that the House Pubbies propose. Blame on both sides maybe, but CNN are pushing the idea that it is all on one side. Where's the push back.

From Wikipedia:

“While at [Dewey Square Group], Cardona served as a Senior Advisor to the Hillary Clinton for President Campaign,[3] serving as a campaign surrogate and spokesperson and representing the campaign on major national TV, radio as well as Spanish language television news and political programs.”

No bias here folks, move along.

“Obama, on behalf of the American people”

No, that should read, “Obama, on behalf of the Democrat Party”.

Bull Shit!!!!!

Obama and the Dims could have agreed to vote on individual true immigration reforms WITHOUT amnesty and they chose not to. That was their choice and by that choice it was their choice to not get any immigration reform.

Reagan started this. The immigration system is “broken” only because Bush and Obama have refused to enforce it.

Enforcement with severe e-verify fines would send illegals back to the homes they still have.

Ah ha! Is the Communist News Network saying Obama is behind the `surge’ of illegal central American young people?
If the WH admits it, well, that’s a `high crime’ and that’s an impeachable offense.

Imagine reading this in the sports columns:

Because the Cowboys held the Patriots to 9 yards, Brady had no choice but to play a 5th down.

Because one side uses all the legal tools at their disposal, that allows the other side to break the law to get what they want?

Obama, who REFUSES to ENFORCE our present laws on immigration; now promises to enforce NEW laws on immigration.

This old bus sits in front of The Broken Spoke in Austin, TX, which is a country and western dance hall down in South Austin.  It was built in 1964 and seems like it has been around even longer than that.  I am not sure about the history of this old bus, but I am certain it has its share of miles.  The Broken Spoke is an icon of sorts around here, and has been rated one of the best dance halls in Texas (and I am sure there are many to choose from).
