I don't think I could even feign giving half a shit about the Obama administration's announcement it is going to review the cases of 300,000 illegal immigrants in deportation proceedings.
This review, ostensibly to weed out convicted felons and the always vague "public safety threats," would also serve to weed out so-called low-priority offenders, presumably with the endgame being to let them stay.
Exactly. Fresh off a disaster disguised as a black bus, President Obama clearly smells his own fear in the air, and the desperation is kicking in. He did it with his speech in El Paso a couple months back, and his administration is doing it again, this time trying to sell the Latino vote on this hope and change bill of goods.
I should be more amazed, I guess, at the notion there even are deportation hearings in progress. We been handed coverage of massive "success" stories like ICE in Houston, where they won't even detain illegals that have been arrested, so why should anything like this raise the hair on our arms?
While the country and mainstream media are concentrating on the economy as the likely culprit if Obama winds up being a one-termer, I wonder how many people are putting this issue in their top three. When the people asked about the economy, he tripled the deficit and made the banks rich. When people asked about high gas prices, he gave the oil companies a little kickback in the form of wholesale oil (those barrels from the strategic reserve you heard about). When the people asked for border security, he sold guns to the cartels and held a blanket amnesty party.
Ask yourself when the American people are going to wake up and quit asking this guy for anything. Not only does he not deliver results, what he does deliver is starting to stink up the joint something awful. I hope they were cracking windows during the bus tour...
