Recently President Obama, during a speech in the Rose Garden, announced that he did an end run around Congress on the illegal immigrant issue. He says he did it because “it’s the right thing to do.” There are a lot of people who believe it was a cheap ploy to get some love from Hispanics and some votes and highly illegal. I happen to be one of them.
If this was really a front line issue for Obama or the Dems, they would have done something about it during the first two years of Obama’s presidency. I’m sure you remember those days. You know, when the Democrats had control of the Senate, the House of Representatives and the White House. They had enough of a majority that the Republicans couldn’t stop any legislation…that’s right, without some Dems changing sides and going with the Republicans, NO Legislation could be stopped!
Where exactly was the immigration legislation that Obama now seems to think is so important?
They (the Dems) didn’t worry about it then because they had no need for the extra “goodwill” and votes. They felt as if they already had enough of both and were busy running around the world trying to impress upon the other world leaders that they were there! The extensive and obnoxious motorcades and entourages should have been more than enough to alert the world of exactly where they were. Too busy running victory laps to keep the base shored up and to keep your promises is what appears to have happened.
So, remember this, dear Hispanic voter, if you were really all that important to Mr. Obama and the Democratic party, they would’ve taken care of this issue (the entire immigration issue, not just the children) long before now, when they could not be stopped.
That was when they really felt like they didn’t need you, but you needed them. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, and they have figured out that they needed you all along, they are willing to ignore the Constitution to get you back in the fold. In the long run, that will just create more problems for Hispanics, others trying to immigrate to the U.S., the Democrats, and Obama…History will be the final judge.
He understands that without your vote and monetary backing he has a much slimmer chance of winning the 2012 race to be America’s Next President.
