Obama has an agenda and Congress is a nuisance to be ignored by him.

He had said he was going to do with even with a Dem Senate.

Default We don't have a immigration problem, we have a criminal entry problem.

We don't need no stinkin' package. We have fine laws in place, we just need someone with cojones to enforce those laws,
and kick those criminaliens out of our country.

Immigration dispute erupts at White House lunch

Uh; Mr President; you may be the POTUS but, you really need to listen to the American people. Most of us DON'T want any kind of amnesty for illegal aliens.
The heck with a "dispute"...I'd like to see a fistfight like they do in the Korea.

That all depends on our dictator Obama, Obama is not a king and can't do whatever he wants.

We have checks and balances in our government, and Obama is going to be checked, balanced AND IMPEACHED if he continues down this absolutely stupid path to benefit foreign CRIMINAL invaders.

Bring it !!!!

IMHO Obama won't last out his term as POTUS. Either he's step down or he'll wind up sick and be forced to hand over his powers.

Oh, I want him to finish. The last thing needed is to turn him into a martyr. Plus that means giving Uncle Joe the keys to the helm.

If the Neocons have their say they won't do the right thing. They mistakenly think they will garner more of the Hispanic vote by passing amnesty aka CIR. I just hope that the anti-amnesty GOPers over rule them and do the right thing. Put forth a bill that mandates e-verify across the board, deny illegal aliens any taxpayer benefits in this country and get to work on getting birthright citizenship re-defined. Now that's reform that makes sense.

Turning off rhetoric for a moment:

Obama has the ability and the tools to turn his Presidency around this last two years for the better of the Country and quite possible the world.

I suspect however this Greek Tragedy that is his Presidency will continue given his displayed behavior.

Can he be the bigger man by rising above it all and turning over a new leaf? I doubt it but stranger things have happend.

He is too entrenched in his own ideology and the current yes men whispering in his ear will advise him no differently.

Obama already did that all on his own. He instructed Homeland Security not to deport any illegal aliens unless that were "convicted" of a crime. So, just what is it that he is asking of the Republicans? Does he want criminal illegal aliens to be able to remain here to now?
He wants his democratic (losing) supporters to force something through prior to the republicans actually taking power or presenting him with a bill that he would have to veto. Hence his insistence on going around congress. If a bill is presented to him, no matter how much support it has, that does not meet his egotistical choices, he will veto it. If it not his way, no way.

Perhaps he should remember what he said. Elections have consequences and he lost.
