They have called liberals a whole bunch of other nasty names. Don't even try to act like the right wing is innocent when it comes to name calling.

The subject was being called a racist for objecting to Obama when it has nothing to do with his race for most but his policies. As for plain old nasty name calliing, yes both sides do it.

Why doesn't anyone in Washington take a stand on this issue? Are they all afraid of being called racist? Are they all afraid of the new political clout of Hispanics?

This whole thing was happening, under the radar 20 years ago, illegal students were given fat jobs on campus, and considered "international students", eligible for all types of grants...it is just lately that now people are paying attention to the situation...

Let's just open the borders completely, and make all of Mexico, Central America, and South America our 51st state. It is happening anyway. Laws don't matter any longer. Nothing does.

I just can't wait until all these illegals become eligible for Social Security benefits, and get them, because they "paid" into them....and we think our country is a train wreck now...you ain't seen nothing yet.....

I love it how everybody ignored the topic and started the good old, partisan fight. Because that's exactly what the US needs, in a time of crysis - more fighting over the same old issues.
