Without a doubt. It's a fairly brilliant move. The only people really p-d off by this are mostly GOP voters. Thus, he likely gains more votes through this move than he loses.

Liable. I did not report such a thing and I will report you if you continue to lie.

Doing things like this for votes is no better than bribes or payola.

Oh yeah, it's the Chicago thing rearing it's head.
Brilliant?
No under handed, sleazy, and unbecoming of a leader and indicative of a ruler.

Like he's got a bag full of "party favors" to hand out.

These next few months are going to be hard. With Obama likely to lose political power in January, he's going to do a lot of his crazy stuff in the next few months.

Why would someone who cares about the working man dramatically increase the supply of labor during a period of high unemployment?

Really, what about these people? (From the Bureau of Labor Statistics Database - May data released in June)

Unemployed: 18 - 19 years old 23.5%
Unemployed: 20 - 24 years old 12.9%

A-10. Unemployment rates by age, sex, and marital status, seasonally adjusted

Unemployed 25 years and older with less than a high school diploma: 13%
Unemployed 25 years and older with high school diploma, no college: 8.1%



Old enough to vote. ^

Or this group:

Black unemployed 16 - 19 years old: 36.5%
Black 16 years and older: 13.6%

(Interestingly, this table has just disappeared)


See, this is what rude guy wanted to know.

The issue that neither wing wants to touch is - WHY are the TAXPAYERS required to pay for benefits that illegals enjoy but do not pay for?
Ex: "free" Emergency room care, "free" public education, etc.

And when they take jobs "under the radar", they aren't paying the same socialist overhead that the "legal" workers have to, so they have an additional advantage - more take home pay.

"No one should suffer because they lack legal standing to be in America" should be prefaced with "No one should be compelled to labor for the benefit of another, so that..." because slavery is not an acceptable solution to the ills of mankind.

King Barack Hussein Kardashian has stuff to do.
He ain't gonna let insignificant trivialities like
Congress or Federal Courts get in his way.

Wait for him to overrule the Supreme Court
when they trashcan Obamacare.
