Jun 15, 2012 Full story: National Public Radio 122

President Obama's decision to stop deporting young, otherwise law-abiding illegal immigrants could help rebuild his support among electorally important Latinos after 18 months of futile efforts, some activists said Friday.

Real Americans with Hispanic roots are proud to be here and Are NOT demanding Amnesty for Illegals, regardless of their origin. These Americans simply want America to be the Great Country it once was before Obama came to town.


Obama Pimping Amnesty is an act of Desperation. He's a complete joke.

Our Divisive President


Barack Obama promised a new era of post-partisanship. In office, he's played racial politics and further split the country along class and party lines.


By PATRICK H. CADDELL
DOUGLAS E. SCHOEN

During the election campaign, Barack Obama sought to appeal to the best instincts of the electorate, to a post-partisan sentiment that he said would reinvigorate our democracy. He ran on a platform of reconciliation—of getting beyond "old labels" of right and left, red and blue states, and forging compromises based on shared values.

President Obama's Inaugural was a hopeful day, with an estimated 1.8 million people on the National Mall celebrating the election of America's first African-American president. The level of enthusiasm, the anticipation and the promise of something better could not have been more palpable.

And yet, it has not been realized. Not at all.

Rather than being a unifier, Mr. Obama has divided America on the basis of race, class and partisanship. Moreover, his cynical approach to governance has encouraged his allies to pursue a similar strategy of racially divisive politics on his behalf.

Obama: The Amnesty Pimp had it planned all along


The first hint that as president Mr. Obama would be willing to interject race into the political dialogue came last July, when he jumped to conclusions about the confrontation between Harvard Prof. Henry Louis "Skip" Gates and the Cambridge police.

During a press conference, the president said that the "Cambridge police acted stupidly," and he went on to link the arrest with the "long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately."

In truth, the Gates incident appears to have had nothing to do with race—a Cambridge review committee that investigated the incident ruled on June 30 that there was fault on both sides.

Sen. Jon Kyl (R., Ariz.) has said the president told him in a closed-door meeting that he would not move to secure the border with Mexico unless and until Congress reached a breakthrough on comprehensive immigration reform. That's another indication Mr. Obama is willing to continue to play politics with hot-button issues.

Add in the lawsuit against the Arizona immigration law and it's clear the Obama administration is willing to run the risk of dividing the American people along racial and ethnic lines to mobilize its supporters—particularly Hispanic voters, whose backing it needs in the fall midterm elections and beyond.

As the Washington Post reported last week, two top White House strategists, speaking on condition of anonymity, have indicated that "the White House plans to use the immigration debate to punish the GOP and aggressively seek the Latino vote in 2012."

Race Baiter Obama


On an issue that has gotten much less attention, but is potentially just as divisive, the Justice Department has pointedly refused to prosecute three members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation at the polls on Election Day 2008.


It is the job of the Department of Justice to protect all American voters from voter discrimination and voter intimidation—whether committed by the far right, the far left, or the New Black Panthers. It is unacceptable for the Department of Justice to continue to stonewall on this issue.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Mr. Obama's campaign emphasized repeatedly that his minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, was being unfairly stereotyped because of racially incendiary sound bites that allegedly did not reflect the totality of his views. In the Gates incident and others, Mr. Obama has resorted to similar forms of stereotyping.

Even the former head of the Civil Rights Commission, Mary Frances Berry, acknowledged that the Obama administration has taken to polarizing America around the issue of race as a means of diverting attention away from other issues, saying: "the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats.... Having one's opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness."

Hey Idiot: A Falling Tide Sinks us All Obama


The president had a unique opportunity to focus on overarching issues of importance to whites and blacks. He has failed to address the critical challenges. He has not used his bully pulpit to emphasize the importance of racial unity and the common interest of poor whites and blacks who need training, job opportunities, and the possibility of realizing the American Dream. He hasn't done enough to address youth unemployment—which in the white community is 23.2% and in the black community is 39.9%.

Barack Hussein Obama: The Great Divider

Mr. Obama has also cynically divided the country on class lines. He has taken to playing the populist card time and time again. He bashes Wall Street and insurance companies whenever convenient to advance his programs, yet he has been eager to accept campaign contributions and negotiate with these very same banks and corporations behind closed doors in order to advance his political agenda.

Finally, President Obama also exacerbated partisan division, and he has made it clear that he intends to demonize the Republicans and former President George W. Bush in the fall campaign. In April, the Democratic National Committee released a video in which the president directly addressed his divide-and-conquer campaign strategy, with an appeal to: "young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again."

President Obama's divisive approach to governance has weakened us as a people and paralyzed our political culture. Meanwhile, the Republican leadership has failed to put forth an agenda that is more positive, unifying or inclusive. We are stronger when we debate issues and purpose, and we are all weaker when we divide by race and class. We will pay a price for this type of politics.

Mr. Caddell served as a pollster for President Jimmy Carter. Mr. Schoen, who served as a pollster for President Bill Clinton, is the author of "The Political Fix" (Henry Holt, 2010).

Biden Says the 'Great' Cities Are in China, Not America

Jun 15, 2012
By DANIEL HALPER

"If I blindfolded Americans and took them into some of the airports or ports in China, and then took one of them to any of your cities in the middle of the night just so that they could see it," Biden said. "If I said,'which one is in America and which one is in China,' most Americans would say,'That great one is in America.'"

Young illegal immigrants’ amnesty could tighten competition for jobs, college

By Pamela Constable, Updated: Friday, June 15, 10:06 PM

President Obama has just opened a floodgate of opportunity for young illegal immigrants in the United States, but could it squeeze the aspirations of legal Americans in the process?

Across the nation Friday, immigrant advocates and Hispanic youth groups hailed Obama’s decision to offer legal status to some undocumented immigrants under 30 as a watershed in U.S. immigration history and a long-sought victory for ambitious youths denied a chance to realize the American dream.

opponents of illegal immigration warned that the policy could create significant new competition for jobs and university slots at a time of nationwide recession and numerous states’ efforts to curb public spending.

“I see a tidal wave coming,” said Brad Botwin, president of Help Save Maryland, a group that opposes legalization for undocumented immigrants.“Half of our college graduates today can’t find jobs, and the unemployment rate for high-school-aged Americans is extremely high. This is unfair to U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who are out there struggling to get ahead.”

Residency not provided

Under the new policy, as many as 1.4 million undocumented immigrants under age 30 will be able to apply for the amnesty.

The new policy could entail additional costs for administration and enforcement and put pressure on state systems of higher education to meet growing demand for slots.

Romney: Obama denying middle class a 'fair shot'

By KASIE HUNT,
Associated Press
4 hours ago

MILFORD, N.H.(AP)— Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney launched a multistate bus tour through small-town America on Friday, charging that President Barack Obama hasn't given the middle class "a fair shot."


"If there's ever been a president who has not given a fair shot to the middle-income Americans of this great nation, it is Barack Obama," Romney declared from a makeshift podium during an "ice cream social" in Milford's town square. "I understand what it takes to get people to work again. I will do that to help the American people from the richest to the poorest and everybody in between."

Obama used the power of the presidency to prove Romney right as Obama's Amnesty Announcement is sure to take Jobs away from real Americans.

Weak factories, sentiment show shaky U.S. recovery


By Jason Lange
WASHINGTON
Fri Jun 15, 2012

(Reuters)- Factory output contracted in May for the second time in three months and families took a dimmer view of their economic prospects in early June, signs that the economy's recovery is on shaky ground.

Data released on Friday was the latest in a series of weak economic reports that have led analysts to cut growth forecasts while raising expectations the U.S. Federal Reserve could launch new stimulus measures.


In May, factory output shrank 0.4 percent, with U.S. plants producing fewer cars and less machinery, Federal Reserve data showed.

Other reports pointed to cooling factory activity in New York state this month, along with a drop in household confidence in the economy.

The fall in confidence poses a serious threat to President Barack Obama's chances of winning re-election in November. It could also lead consumers to cut back on spending, which would reduce economic growth.

"Consumers are scared," said Sharon Stark, managing director at Sterne Agee in Birmingham, Alabama.

U.S. consumer sentiment fell in early June to a six-month low. A gauge of household confidence in the economy's future also dropped to its lowest since December.

The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan's index on consumer sentiment slipped to 74.1, falling short of even the most pessimistic forecast in a Reuters poll.

Retail sales contracted in May and new applications for jobless benefits have risen in five of the last six weeks.


Thanks Obama!

funny how holder has been stonewalling congress for exactly 18 months,could this be part of the reason.

and all the traitors are letting this go on trying to push the f&f thing until after the elections instead of getting it done in a f&f way.

the scandle if brought out now would show beofre the elections how obama and crew was trying to do a gun grab by placing blame on gun shops while he was giving guns to the cartels which would still be going on if the border patrol guy would not have gotten killed by guns given by obama and holder,not to mention the 40 to 50,000 mexican citizens they helped kill.
