Stunner. Obama White House Takes Credit for Immigration Deal

si se puede sticker

The White House took credit for the immigration deal that was announced today by a bi-partisan group of US Senators.
The Politico reported:

White House press secretary Jay Carney on Monday welcomed an immigration deal reached by a bipartisan group of senators and gave credit to President Obama for pressing the issue.

“I think it’s important before we let the moment pass to acknowledge that the progress we’re seeing embodied in the priniciples put forward by this bipartisan group is happening for a reason: I think it’s happening because consensus is developing in the country, a bipartisan consensus, and it’s happening because the president has demonstrated significant leadership on this issue,” Carney said.

He said that when immigration reform failed in 2010, Obama continued to press for it, giving speeches repeatedly and putting out a detailed blueprint for reform.

“He made clear in the campaign last year that this would be a top priority of his in a second term, and he is keeping that commitment by pressing forward today,” he said.

Carney declined to address a key difference between the White House and the senators’ plan, which would allow a path to citizenship only after increased border security.

    Obama has taken credit for things he had nothing to do with.
    Has Obama EVER taken blame for anything?

    The consensus is that ILLEGAL immigrants do not deserve anything but a one-way ticket home and a permanent ban from the country.

    We will get the amnesty and all the new welfare but will never get the secured border.
    Don’t forget that we were already promised a secure border seven years ago and never got it.

    Earth to the Bush bashers, he was right about Kyoto, he was right
    about Social Security, he was right about Immigration, he was right
    about Fannie & Freddie, he was right about Might against terrorism
    and several other issues, however..

    i’m afraid that “we the people” won’t be recognizing it for some time to
    come, but GWB was the last American President, a man who albeit was
    like a Salmon swimming upstream against both “foreign and domestic”
    political tide, put “we the people” first..

    My guess is that we’ve been sold out by the Republicans yet again.

    …which would allow a path to citizenship only after increased border security.


    The path to citizenship will happen, but the increased border security won’t.


    I think he should.

    “A bipartisan group…”

    FYI: A group of d-cRAT socialist extremists and socialist-butt-kissing RINO TRAITORS is NOT “bipartisan” – it’s just a group of 100% socialist extremists.

    [R.J. Pestritto writes that the Progressives “detested the Declaration
    of Independence, which enshrines the protection of individual natural
    rights (like property) as the unchangeable purpose of government;
    and they detested the Constitution, which places permanent limits on
    the scope of government and is structured in a way that makes the
    extension of national power beyond its original purpose very difficult.”
    Given their contempt for those documents, the progressives’ mission
    was to progress, or move beyond, the principles laid out by the

    Whereas classical liberalism saw government as a necessary evil whose involvement in social and private affairs needed to be limited wherever practicable, progressivism saw the state as the rightful overseer and regulator of significant portions of American social and economic life. To compensate for the inequities of capitalism in industrial-age America, Progressives favored a government empowered to redistribute private property under the banner of social justice. R.J. Pestritto compares and contrasts progressivism and socialism:

    “Since the Progressives had such a limitless view of state power, and since they wanted to downplay the founders’ emphasis on individual rights, it is only natural to ask if they subscribed to socialism….

    “[We must] bear in mind that there was an actual socialist movement during the Progressive Era, and prominent progressives such as Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt were critics of it. In fact, Wilson and Roosevelt both ran against a socialist candidate in the 1912 election (Eugene Debs). The progressives were ambivalent about the socialist movement of their day not so much because they disagreed with it in principle, but because the American socialist movement was a movement of the lower classes. The progressives were elitists; they looked down their noses at the socialists, considering them a kind of rabble.

    “Keeping these points in mind, it is, nonetheless, the case that the progressive conception of government closely coincided with the socialist conception. Both progressivism and socialism champion the prerogatives of the state over the prerogatives of the individual. Wilson himself made this connection very plain in a revealing essay he wrote in 1887 called ‘Socialism and Democracy.’ Wilson’s begins this essay by defining socialism, explaining that it stands for unfettered state power, which trumps any notion of individual rights. It ‘proposes that all idea of a limitation of public authority by individual rights be put out of view,’ Wilson wrote, and ‘that no line can be drawn between private and public affairs which the State may not cross at will.’ After laying out this definition of socialism, Wilson explains that he finds nothing wrong with it in principle, since it was merely the logical extension of genuine democratic theory.”]

    And Boner and the wimpy 3 plus the token 1 of the gang of 8 will keep marching on hoping to keep their glory, then whine and wipe their noses when they aren’t invited to the parade in honor of the GOP’s demise.

    Any bill that doesn’t have “First a X,XXX miles of XX foot high wall/fence shall be built and manned, with an x mile must-deport zone next to it, and enforced for six months, AND no EBT or social security payments shall be made to illegal aliens or in foreign countries, or to people who have used fraudulent or stolen SS numbers, THEN”… Is a complete sell out.

    Obama, Janet Napolitano, Sen. Dick Durbin, and others are all guilty of violation of the immigration laws. Obama needs to be empeached, Napolitano and Durbin both need to be forced to resign and face charges of crimes against the Constitution and the immigration laws by Obama’s cherry picking the Dream Act which was dead, voted down, and was not the law in order to redefine who is eligible for amnesty and who is not. The Dream Act was designed by the Socialist Communist Democrats to do exactly that, cherry picking who could be given amnesty and who couldn’t. Like illegal Mexican aliens are criminals to begin with, guilty of committing a serious crime by sneaking across our established border with Mexico, violating our national sovereignty. Is that serious enough of a crime to be considered NOT eligiable for being given amnesty? I do.

    But we don’t live in a lawful society anymore. Especially since we hear from some little twerp from Georgetown University on TV yesterday who claims that the Constitution shouldn’t be looked at anymore because we’re giving allegence to a bunch of old men who’ve been dead for two hundred years, and this is “our” country now and we should have the right to run it the way we want to and not how these dead men said we should.

    Does that sound like what Obama is doing? Does that sound like what his administration is doing by trying to take our guns away? Does that sound like what we see happening on the Supreme Court when the Chief Justice agrees with a Communist law taking all of our healthcare choices away from us and giving us death panels for grandma? If you think that what Obama is doing is correct because you think the Constitution is pas sa, then you are part of the problem and not part of the solution. The solution is for us to act on our Constitutional right to take our government back by force of arms and “remove” these usurpers like Obama and every liberal Socialist Communist in the government and “replace” them with conservative constitutional individuals who understand how America should be run and what it should stand for.

    (And the parenthesises around the words “remove” and “replace” are quotes from the Constitution where it declares we have the right to have the kind of government our forefathers enumerated we should have.)

    The Demon-rats can’t wait to give these people who came here unlawfully a short cut to Citizenship. Subtract their kids, and you’re looking at about 7 million more low information voters that are hostile towards the U.S. Constitution.

    is this the immigration deal to impeach then deport 0bama and his family from the US?
    ….that’s the deal I would like to see reached…
    and a reverse-immigration deal… as in people coming over the border are just shot on sight with an automated heavy gatling guns. …or they are waterboarded then shipped to a random foriegn country like africa or china.

    it would be helpful to deport liberals/democrats too …since they should be considered foreigners’ and ‘marxist anti-americans’
