Truthfully, after all of the B.S he has to go through with some of these buttwipes in order to get things done. Sadly, in some cases you really cannot tell if it is racism, politically motivated BS or just the good old fashion manipulation of the dumb masses. If he did like the previous one did and come in and made a fortune for him and his freinds half of these morons would not have a probelm with that.

The problem as I see it is we are such a fractured and unfocused country right now.

And what I say now doesn't mean it's wrong:

You've got people that hate Obama so much they will do anything that gets attention-the birthers, the Sestack issue and it goes on. Credibility is a serious issue here.

The other side pulls out the race card against the Tea Party.

You've got Nancy Peolsi talking about religion.

We've got the oil spill and the blame game.

We've still got wars going on.

We still have a stinking economy.

We are distracted. So all the left has to do is pull the race card again. Those against illegal immigration are racists.

Well I'm not a racist. I'll even admit my hackles were up when I first heard about the Arizona law. "Racial profiling" popped right into my head. And I have too many Hispanic friends and that upset me. Until I read the law. Even before the changes. I wasn't thrilled but logic kicked in and I realized that law enforcement in Arizona couldn't possibly pull over every "brown" person. Then they changed it. I support it because the feds have done nothing. We have issues in North Carolina where I live. My county is the staging area for the Midwest and Northeast drug trade coming from Mexico. So much fun living with that.

I know too many people that did it the right way when they came to this country. It's a slap in the face of everyone who followed the rules.

We need to get over a lot of this other garbage and focus on this issue because I have a horrible feeling amnesty will be granted and we will all be so very very sorry.

I bet Obama was scared to be so close to such a scary looking face.

I'm pretty sure he's used to being up close and personal with scary looking ugly women by now.

Amnesty again.. about every 20 years or so. Will the Fed's EVER keep their word and stem the flow?? you know what, I was reflecting on the amnesty issue over the past couple years and have come to the conclusion that it is only proposed every few decades or so, due to the fact that the only promise kept is the amnesty one, and the Fed's need younger voters that will be gullible enough to buy into it (they don't know better). We should open our borders and absorb Mexico into the United States.. let's get it over with. We are being colonized at a very fast rate- 22.4 million in 1990.. currently 46.9 million, 132.8 million projected by 2050.

Can't wait until the first anchor baby with questionable loyalties runs for POTUS.
