Obama Bait & Switch on Immigration, War, Gay Rights

The Hispanic activists that supported Barack Obama in the hope of aggressive immigration reform are a little dismayed. It turns out that Obama is continuing previously implemented programs and even stepping them up a bit. The New York Times indicates how Obama has moved his position towards his election opponent:

Ms. Napolitano and other administration officials argue that no-nonsense immigration enforcement is necessary to persuade American voters to accept legislation that would give legal status to millions of illegal immigrants, a measure they say Mr. Obama still hopes to advance late this year or early next.

That approach brings Mr. Obama around to the position that his Republican rival, Senator John McCainof Arizona, espoused during last year’s presidential campaign, a stance Mr. Obama rejected then as too hard on Latino and immigrant communities. (Mr. McCain did not respond to requests for comment.) Now the enforcement strategy has opened a political rift with some immigrant advocacy and Hispanic groups whose voters were crucial to the Obama victory.

The continuation and expansion of the 287(g) program has to be an especially hard pill for the activists to swallow.

At least immigration activists are not alone…they can find comfort in the arms of gay activists and anti-war activists that Obama has also sold out 🙂

Coming next…Obama breaks his pledge not to raise taxes on those making less than $250K per year…oh, nevermind, he broke that promise when he raised taxes on tobacco.

Top ten positive outcomes from the POTUS election:

  1. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and every other poverty pimp can now crawl back in thier respective holes and STFU. Affirmative action in all areas can now cease.
  2. Affirmative action can now cease.
  3. Europeans can lament their provincialism and marvel at the cosmopolitan nature of the Americans.
  4. The U.S.A can pursue radical Islam with impunity sans any charges of being anti-Islamic.
  5. Contributors at the Huffington Post will stop killing people
  6. Contributors at the Huffington Post will quit wishing people dead.
  7. Contributors at the Huffington Post will stop stealing private property.
  8. John McCain will be remembered as a classy politician.*
  9. Sarah Palin will be a fixture in the future of the GOP.
  10. Any leftist agenda has to be implemented through the incompetency of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid 🙂 

*Unless McCain repudiates the bile spilling forth from his handlers viz-a-viz Sarah Palinhe will be shunned by the Political Dookie and shall be labeled classless.

McCain Does Babs!

McCain rips Babs in an old SNL skit, good stuff:

A little humor while global financial markets melt 🙂

Barack Obama is a Liar and an Idiot

Barack has spent a great deal of energy touting public finance as a means to rid the election process of the influence of money. So now that he is the inevitable nominee what is his position? Of course he has changed his mind. Campaign finance reform is not a big deal for the average Joe and I do not anticipate that this will hurt BO particularly given the slavish devotion of his kool-aid drinkers. Regardless, the man is a liar.

Now comes the idiot part. Barck Obama is against drilling lifting the ban on offshore drilling as well as opposed to expanded drilling in Alaska. He is an idiot because he does not appear to understand that this we could crush the wild speculation in futures market if we took a bold stand and outlined a serious program for reducing our dependency on traditional suppliers. We need short, mid, and long-term programs to accomplish this and BO can’t see beyond his moveon.org playbook. Granted John McCain has only recently come around on these issues.

Perhaps even sillier is BO’s argument that even if we expand energy exploration opportunities it won’t have an impact for 10 years. Well that belies ignorance of the futures market as we discussed but it also contradicts the left’s global warming logic. They are only too happy to raise taxes for the slim chance of minutely affecting various environmental factors years into the future but when it comes to taking action that will actually help the average Joe…forgetaboutit!

I guess part of the energy issue is that Barack, just like Al Gore, believes that we should be paying more for energy.

Oy!

Frank Rich: Moral Equivalence and Bad Whitey

Mr. Rich has an opinion piece today that underscores the silliness that is the New York Times. Rich attempts to associate McCain with Hagee in the same manner as Wright is associated with Obama. The only problem is that McCain does not have a 20 year relationship with Hagee and all that other specialness that Obama shared with Wright until 5 minutes ago. Rich then lambasts the Republican Party for its lack of black members in the House and Senate. He does not bother to discuss the attacks that conservative blacks must endure at the hands of the left, the victim-orientation of the democrats, the destructiveness of identity politics, and does nothing to advance the discussion of race for which he expresses a desire.

  

McCain Telegraphs His Strategy

The Arizona Senator has come out strong against a North Carolina GOP ad using the Reverend Wright as a hammer against democratic opponents. I wonder if this is part of a strategy to provide distance between McCain and the inevitable attack ads, probably so. It may not be a bad tact to take given that Hillary will be spending some more time tearing down the new messiah. It will be interesting to see what McCain feels is fair game. He has already indicated a willingness to take Obama to task on his relationship with domestic terrorists.

It is clear that McCain feels like he has to walk a fine line and at this point he looks to be doing it with finesse.  

Senator Jay Rockefeller D-W.VA. Is Liberal Military Hating Scum

Exhibit “A” from the Chareslton Gazette today:

Rockefeller criticized Sen. John McCain, the presumed Republican nominee for president. “Senator McCain does have a temper. But today, he speaks in a monotone on the campaign trail.”

Rockefeller believes McCain has become insensitive to many human issues. “McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit.

“What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground? He doesn’t know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues.”

We can set aside the fact that they did not have laser-giuded missiles back in 1967 and we can disregard that fighter pilots engaged in missions like Senator McCain seldom went above 15,000 feet and would typically drop to 3500 feet or so when firing on targets. Heck, we can even ignore that McCain got real up close and personal as a POW, damn closer than 35,000 feet.

No, while Rockefeller’s idiocy is depressing given his position, his penchant for antimilitarism is worrisome and disgusting. It does, however, typify the attitude that the left holds toward the military. It is just the latest honest expression just like Dick Durbin and the Code Pink skanks.

There is only one cool pacifist…
