Barack Obama, our next President

Immigrants closely related to U.S. citizens can now apply for visas from the U.S., according to a rule announced by the Department of Homeland Security, Wednesday. Until now, immigrant parents, children or spouses of American citizens were required to return to their home country to apply for legal status. Because of a separate 1996 law meant to discourage repeat migration to the U.S., immigrants who had overstayed a prior visa can be barred from returning for 3 to 10 years. As a result, many immigrants who could be eligible for legal status through a close family member chose to stay in the U.S. illegally and opt out of the visa process altogether.
Now, family members can seek legal status from the United States, and return to their home countries when a visa is ready, leaving for a few weeks instead of years. The administration says this rule change keeps families together and encourages people who are here illegally to come forward and seek legal recognition. The rule could affect 1 million of the estimated 11 million people in the U.S. illegally.
Is this step a smart way to ensure that families stay together? Or is it a giant loophole that significantly alters immigration policy? And, what role will Congress play, when recent policy changes have all come from the White House?

Infighting has penetrated the highest levels of the House GOP leadership. Long-standing geographic tensions have increased, pitting endangered Northeastern Republicans against their colleagues from other parts of the country. Enraged tea party leaders are threatening to knock off dozens of Republicans who supported a measure that raised taxes on the nation’s highest earners.
‘‘People are mad as hell. I'm right there with them,’’ Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express, said late last week, declaring that she has ‘‘no confidence’’ in the party her members typically support. Her remarks came after GOP lawmakers agreed to higher taxes but no broad spending cuts as part of a deal to avert the ‘‘fiscal cliff.’’

You idiotic old slag, the subject was the whining racist Gen. Powell and his lies about racism from the right.
I repeat, sober up, it's well know you're an alcoholic.
Colin Powell is a black man; he is not racist, your party is full of racists and he told the truth.
Why deny it? Everything you say is racist and so you should be proud of your ignorance.

He is most definitely the intellectual heavy weight in this scenario. He has the republicans tripping all over themselves acting more foolish than ever.
I hope they shut the government down. You'll be long dead before another republican ever gets elected president of these United States.

Problem for you is that they got no useful intelligence from those who were waterboarded.
Per the CIA, who was doing the waterboarding.
""As for getting "phenomenal results" from waterboarding alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the CIA Inspector General's report on the subject was inconclusive—with the author noting that "you could not in good conscience reach a definitive conclusion about whether any specific technique was especially effective, or [whether] the enhanced techniques in the aggregate really worked." Of course, what we know now is that when it came to tracking down Osama bin Laden's whereabouts, KSM lied despite being subjected to waterboarding, as did other detainees who were tortured. Cheney seems to think those are "phenomenal results."
Bush apologists have been trying for months to credit brutal interrogation techniques for the discovery Osama bin Laden's hideout, all evidence to the contrary. Torture in fact, harmed the America's intelligence collection efforts post-9/11, at least according to former FBI interrogator Ali Soufan. In his new memoir, he writes that the Bush administration's fixation on torture, FBI agents ceased participating in interrogations, "meaning that some of the government’s most knowledgeable experts were unable to speak with the most important terrorists." That claim is difficult to evaluate, but Cheney's claims about waterboarding are false on their face.""

You really should let go of this. You bring it up every few months, get beat about the head over your ignorance, drop it for awhile, then bring up the same stupidity all over again.
Get a life. You're here all the time. You and Nobraina are the most frequent posters on this thread and all you do is spread lies.
Losing an election isn't even enough to make you realize how out of touch you are.
That's how brainlessly partisan you are.
The mantra amongst you wingnuts is:
'Don''t talk about Bush, he's not President anymore'.
But let's talk about Clinton, Carter and any Democrat President, no matter how far back in history it is.
You're funny like that. Not ha-ha funny, but very sick funny.

It's amazing to see and hear their new arguments indeed. I once spoke with a maternal-fetal medicine doctor about a patient and then in the midst of his all, he started telling me "what a genius that man is"... A "super-educated" person with several specialties and a Ph.d. Yes, the intelligentsia is incredible with regards to Obama also. No wonder those below on the food chain eating from same trough can nothing but giggle here as well. This is a contagion of grandeur in proxy, kind of like MuenchHausen in proxy where a mother injures her child to get attention. Well, in this case, Obama is the grandeur they want to create about themselves and the only way to get it is to make it up, it seems.

Millions of people like you are pushing it now. Are begging and praying (maybe to the wrong guy) that other millions will be shot dead cold by your political thugs. Comparing the national guard intervention to implement clearly constitutionally agreed upon consensus in some contested areas is NOT equitable to threatening one own's citizens with death should they not shoot at OTHER citizens.
It is easy to wave you off as just another liberal full of hot air, hyperbole and megalomania. However, this isn't about you. You are simply an echo chamber or totalitarianism no matter which country we were talking about. Resistance and opposition is healthy and those who gloat and continue to whip up frenzy like yourself will continue to be one of the rabid dogs that it is impossible to live along with under your own ideals of the world.
Finally, the fact that you so obviously drool over people having genuine fears and concerns about future freedom is another example of the wickedness and vileness of you followers. Trust me, you will get to see as much blood as you want and as many "rich" and "white" people killed, but the whole in your heart will only keep growing bigger and bigger.
I'm not here to argue the merits of the laws with you, because unconstitutional laws are not enforceable. THAT doesn't mean a solid dictatorship cannot force/coerce it's own police and federal wing to kill it's own citizens en masse. It has happened all over the world. It sets that nation back centuries compared to what it could become. You have already made your choice: utter destruction and subjugation of everyone not in sync with you. Now you are merely preparing the victory lap... Something tells me, you will understand what I am talking about a few years from now when you are not needed any more....
If Obama acts in defiance of the Constitution, then law enforcement officials and the military will need to decide whether to follow unlawful orders. If they follow such orders and Obama is ultimately overthrown, then they will face the consequences of their actions.

But none of this will happen because it's all for show.
