I suspect that posters in this thread would like to charge him with treason for fa*ting in his bathroom and then hang him from the nearest tree, just like the good old days.
No need to throw the race card out there just because Obama is HALF black. Of course Obama isn't totally responsible for the presence of illegal aliens in our country, not by a long shot. Several administrations in the past are also responsible for turning a blind eye to this mess. But he is our current president and he is still promising them amnesty and that is where he is going wrong.

Good post, that puts things in perspective. It's congress that makes the laws. Without congressional support he is a lame duck. I agree that as captain of the ship he is held accountable. I don't believe that his actions amount to treason as the OP suggests.

For your throwing the race card into this mix, rightly, I should not even respond to you . . .



But, I CHALLENGE you to DISPROVE - with absolute and indisputable substance - anything stated in my original post.

If you are going to charge the Obama administration, then why not charge the Judges of the Spupreme Court-past and present? Why not charge all the state representives of each State that have voted to allow aliens benifits in their state? Charge every CEO,CCO of companies large and small that knowingly and repeatedly ignore immigration hiring rules.

To pick and choose is playing games...To not recognize all the participants in your dilema is short sighted.

I wish we could try them for treason and deport them as they are more dangerous than the illegals themselves. Unfortunately, only the former is possible but not the latter and our government lacks the balls to prosecute the former.

I say hold them all accountable each and every one of them.
