Latinos: Obama 'owes' us
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/8/2012 5:13:53 PM

Hispanic activists are wasting no time pressuring President Obama to give them their due for flooding the polls for his reelection. Citing exit polls that show Obama received up to 71 percent of the Latino vote, Hispanic and pro-immigration reform groups are urging the president to move fast to use his election mandate to pressure foes into an immigration deal. "President Obama unquestionably owes this historic victory to 71% of the Latino vote," said the DRM Action Coalition which promotes the DREAM Act to provide children of undocumented workers special access to college.

Comments:
Their audacity is astonishing. Thank you to Democrats everywhere for fracturing the society. s/o

Silly latinos! (Full disclosure - I am one). If 0 gives you what you want, how will the next dim candidate get you to vote for him? Prepare for permanent anticipation. Next!

Obviously, if latinos only goal is to increase the numbers of latinos in the country it must be to increase their power against whites and other non-latinos. This is a profoundly racist and un-American goal that must be resisted with every fibre of our resolve. Stop illegal immigration. Deport illegal aliens. Reduce quotas for thirs world countries. Restrict immigration to the young, the educated and the English speaking.

Everyone knows that virtually any group (whether legal, illegal, unethical, immoral, etc.) that attains a sufficient political following, can depend upon the Democrat Party to carry their water. We can only be thankful that pedophiles have not yet gained enough of a following. But felons are on the verge.

Silly special interest groups. Don't you know you are their trump card? They can't play you (give you what you want) until they have a different trump card (special interest group to exploit) to replace you. And, my Latino friends, you are a huge voting block for them and they just can't let you go that easily. So get used to having the carrot dangled before you for at least the next two years until the Dems are able to take over (steal) both houses of Congress.
On another note, lady parts voters, isn't it funny, you were promised something that you already had. So, what's to look forward to? I mean, you already had birth control, access to birth control, cheap birth control and abortion up to the time of birth. You were easy ladies.

Latinos prepare to be fenced into the ghettos with your black brethren and be left there to rot by your liberal friends. They will add you to the government teat and terrify you into submission whenever a conservative utters the phrase 'personal responsibility'. By the time Obama is done every urban area will resemble Staten Island - dumpster diving and begging on the street for fresh water. You see how that is working out for them.

I'm all for letting those who are here illegally but work hard & pay taxes stay AS LONG AS we also simultaneously deport those here (legally or illegally) who don't.

Foolish his/herspanic (I want to be politically correct so that I don't offend anyone) liberal activists. You gave your vote to the dumbocrats again. Don't you people realize that Odummer and Co. don't owe you nothing. Just like the black liberal activists the crats will keep putting out the football ala Lucy and Charlie Brown(or in your case Lucena and Carlos)for you dopes to kick and at the last minute take it away from you. This while you fall flat on your backs. The funny things is every four years you fall for it. I have NO sympathy for you and what you're "owed". Adios suckers.

As an American I give everyone a chance. I don't care what their story is and many times i find a new hero, but you don't start off breaking the law and amount to much, in most cases. Sure the democrats have pandered to and encouraged the legal and illegal population growth since Ted Kennedy, but the Republicans did nothing to resolve the issue of another tribe competing for their chunk of the American corpse. When entire communities fly the flag of Mexico or Puerto Rico higher than the Stars and Stripes, your country is dying.

I'm already furious at the way Hispanics are given preferential treatment. They already have preference in getting into college, the problem is that once they get in they don't have the intellectual chops to finish. Hence, we've spent tax dollars on them, and took the spot from a more qualified student, all for no purpose.

It's difficult enough for a student to get into a state university here in California, but once they move the illegals ahead kids like my son will have no chance.

What proves my point is that any brilliant black or hispanic kid who applies themselves will get a free ride at a great university, and yet they're having trouble filling their quotas. The problem is that in non-Asian minority families success at school is not supported or encouraged. There are exceptions, but the "don't give a damn" percentage is at least 80%, at least in our community.

My son's teachers have told me that it's difficult to get the minority parents to attend parent/teacher conferences, or respond to phone calls. They just want baby sitters. And, heaven forbid, their kid gets into trouble, it's never their kid's fault and the teachers take verbal and physical abuse for even mentioning it.

The joke is on you Latinos. If Obama is stupid enough to throw open the gates to Mexico, your fellow job seekers will flood the job market and life will not be good for those already here. Then there's the greater demand for medical care and education and food and housing. You wanted this assclown, you got him.

In a little over 200 years we have turned into nothing better than ghetto trash. The next decade will turn ugly.

Don't worry, amigo, you will get everything you want plus a lot more as long as you guarantee that all those illegal aliens will vote Demon-RAT forever.

Citizenship, welfare, shoot, lots of good ''free stuff''. The Demon-RATS don't want you to come here, work hard and succeed. They need you poor, dumb, lazy and totally dependant on them. That means you will join most of the rest of their base on the welfare plantation.

Maybe they will even rename it the welfare barrio in your honor.

This nation died on November 6, 2012. Now we sit here as the corpse rots away -- just what the lie-berals ALWAYS wanted!!!

The dem party has forgotten or lost the meaning America's Constitutional principle, ''equality.'' ...Between unique promises to each of their countless special interest divided groupings, their credibility is stretched far to thin.

It would be better for the country if the dems would return to support for Liberty's principles and honestly debate the issues instead of simply pandering special promises to each of their divisions in exchange for votes.

The wimpy Republicans would be committing long-term political suicide if they allow a liberal Democrat amnesty to pass for 12-20 million illegal aliens that puts them on a "path to citizenship" that is liberal Democrat code speak for eventually granting many millions of legalized aliens US voting rights.

Even if only about half of the legalized aliens ever register and vote, the liberal Democrats would have many millions of new foreign born voters to continue their transformation of America, and ensure that the Republicans are never able again to win national elections.

O will give them Texas and Arizona. He can't be very fond of either state. Just tell Mexico he won't defend them and order our military to leave.

Hillary can announce it is a new Good Neighbor Policy.

The states might put up a stout fight but Mexico has 100m or so population advantage including probably 30% of the people already in those states.

California and New Mexico vote for Democrats so Obama may want to keep them.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
