Obama cautioned supporters that Republicans will “spend more money than we have ever seen in the history of the Republic” on political ads “telling you that the economy is bad, it’s all my fault, and I can’t fix it because government is always the answer, according to me.”
Truth hurts dude. But since when did a Liberal every care about the truth…
“Or because I didn’t make a lot of money in the private sector, or because I’m in over my head, or because I think everybody is doing just fine,” the president said, eliciting laughter from the crowd.
“And that may be their plan to win an election, but it’s sure not a plan to create jobs,” he said. (UPI) (The unemployment rate over 8% for 3 1/2 years is a sterling example of how well he has done, right?)
Obama Asks People Getting Married To Forgo Gifts, Ask Their Guests To Donate To His Campaign Instead…
You can even register your wedding on his campaign website. Could he be any more pompous?
So, on your wedding day, give everything to him so he can take it again from you in higher taxes and more regulations and fewer jobs. But it’ll make you feel good!
Next thing you know it’s going to be instead of giving your kids candy give it to Obama. (taking candy from a baby…get it?) 🙂
When in doubt, give him all your money. Got any loose change in the sofa, give it to Obama!
Documents released June 15 said the amnesty would exclude people who had been formally found guilty of committing a felony or a “significant misdemeanor.”
Administration officials told immigration lawyers in a subsequent telephone conference that a drunk-driving conviction would disqualify applicants, but did not explain what they meant by “significant misdemeanor.”
“Significant misdemeanor” is not a legal term; it has no statutory definition,” said a statement from the Federation for American Immigration Reform. “It is simply a term that has been made up by the administration… [which] could change its mind at any time and make the term more or less inclusive.” (DC)
“What if an individual committed crimes in another country? Or was booked or convicted under a different name? Or an alien comes forward and applies for deferred action under a different name,” said an immigration activist.
“It’s not as if the alien will be producing a birth certificate from a U.S. hospital. They are illegal; that’s the whole point. They may have used multiple names, aliases, SSNs, etc. They may have used multiple fake documents.”
The administration provided vague details about the documents that would be deemed sufficient to prove an individual met the government’s rules. “Documentation sufficient for an individual to demonstrate that he or she came to the United States before the age of 16 includes, but is not limited to: financial records, medical records, school records, employment records, and military records.”
But after the 1986 amnesty, federal officials accepted many fraudulent documents, boosting the number of immigrants way above the forecasted numbers.
“I would assume, given the mood of the government, and the precedents, that various bits of evidence… would be considered and unless grossly phony would be accepted,” North said.
The likely acceptance of fraud could allow many people older than 31 to get work permits, he said. “I worry, particularly, at the older end of the spectrum, of highly questionable foreign birth certificates dated the last half of 1982 and 1983,” said North.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association declined to respond to TheDC’s request for information. The association’s members stand to gain from the new policy, which creates many new legal clients.
“The overarching point I would make is that this policy for granting deferred action, is … policy and not statutory language,” said one immigration activist. The government “could change the [rules and details] at any time.”
“This is a classic political strategy: set forth what appears to be a solid rule, and then undermine it with tons of exceptions,” said the activist. “Politicians know that neither the media nor the average American will have the time or patience to sort through it all.” (DC)
“What we have seen is a shameful display of abuse of power by the Republicans in the House of Representatives. Instead of bringing job-creating legislation to the floor, the transportation bill, they are holding the attorney general of the United States in contempt of Congress for doing his job. It’s really important to note how this is connected with some of their other decisions. It is no accident. It is no coincidence that the attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country, that issues that relate to the civil liberties of the American people are upheld,” Pelosi told reporters at the Capitol during her weekly press briefing.
“These very same people who are holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote. They are closely allied with those who are suffocating the system with unlimited special-interest secret money, and they are poisoning the debate. They are poisoning the debate with that money.”
Speaker Boehner, however, said the American people “deserve the truth” about Operation Fast and Furious.
Just like Obama said of Bush repeatedly. But you aren’t supposed to remember that. The Left lives in only what is good for me at this nanosecond in time.
“Congress also has a responsibility to the American people to learn the truth about what happened in Fast and Furious. On February the 4th, 2011, the Department of Justice denied allegations that it allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico. Ten months later, the Justice Department formally withdrew its denial and acknowledged that it made false claims to Congress about this reckless operation,” Boehner said Thursday.
“The Obama administration stonewalled Congress’ legitimate oversight responsibilities to find out how and why it made these false claims. Remember, we’re talking about a program that gave Mexican drug dealers guns, and those guns killed an American border agent.”
Boehner called on the Obama administration to turn over the “relevant documents right now.” He claimed that Obama’s “decision to invoke executive privilege is an admission that White House officials were involved in decisions that misled the Congress and have covered up the truth.”
“So what is the Obama administration hiding in Fast and Furious?” he asked.
WILLIAMS: We know how the guy died!
BOLLING: …are dead at the hands of the same guns.
WILLIAMS: Hey people die in war! People died…
BOLLING: Don’t you care about the three hundred Mexicans that died from the guns the guns that were traced back to Fast and Furious?
WILLIAMS: I care about human life. But I’m telling you people die. And you know what? We know the facts of Fast and Furious. We know how he died!
