<quoted text> When will House republican's direct action toward Immigration Reform?
Why is it when democrats find themselves in trouble they always turn to republicans to do something to bail them out?

Obama had 5 1/2 years to "direct action" toward immigration reform and did nothing. He's now doing nothing, accept pointing fingers as usual. Obama has offered a contradictory explanation of the border problem, earlier insisting fantastically the borders are actually more secure than ever! Now, because of his own words and inaction people from other countries think that if they can just get in they'll gain amnesty and citizenship.

If, as Obama claims, this isn't a security issue (and you can research his own words stating that), then why would hijacking more taxpayer money for more security help this issue?

You're demanding republicans solve Obama's own dilemma instead of demanding the president do his job for once. This president won't even face the issue in person, and you're blaming someone else for not doing his job for him? LOL

It will also take the Republicans that couldn't do anything but try to mollify Obama and be intimidated by him. Obama needs to be removed from the Presidency NOW!!!!!!!
So tedious and hateful.....Please devote that to someone else, maybe like you?......

2nd response (and it would help if you'd actually read it this time).

Why should they? This president has had 5 1/2 years to address this issue and has instead chosen to ignore it, and even turn it into a larger fiasco than it was before. Now his own words have created a misconception that if people from these poorer countries just come over with their kids they'll have citizenship handed to them.

If you can't see the timing of this immigration uproar is perfectly aligned with the election cycle, and that immigration is the next astroturfed "sky-is-falling" life-threatening, hair on fire catastrophe to take the focus off the rest of the political scandals Obama and his team of criminals have gotten themselves caught up in, there's no further point reasoning with you.

The democrats' plan is to hijack billions from the American taxpayer again, this time to do what? Beef up border security, something Obama vowed a few weeks ago wasn't even the issue. They haven't been willing to negotiate. As always it's a "my way or the highway" attitude from this administration.

So, when republicans represent their constituency and decline to support legislation they don't agree with, the left jumps up and down and claims they are obstructionists. It's a predictable game of political theater, and you low-info Obama fans fall for it willingly every time.

Notice that the far right gets all emotionally bent when you present facts and logic? If you mention the 2008 LAW, you get jumped on. If you DON'T try to get funding to handle it, you're draining local resources. If you do, you're still wasting money.

Yes, the party of NO is alive and well.

With your logic, you enjoy the thought of all those Central American kids being let in and being sold into the sex trade. Emotionally you like hearing the stories of 10 and 12 year old girls getting raped by cartel members who got guns from Fast and Furious...... Wait! there must be some connection to the cartels and this administration..... Your people like the chaos and child sex..... You're sick bonds..... These things are happening and this administration did send guns to the cartels that you support at both ends. Sick Sick Sick.......

Ever wonder why the progressive party draws everything up for you idiots in cartoon format?
You're the reason. It's not my concern if you can't even comprehend facts that aren't illustrated in paint-by-number moron simplicity.

I think at this point we need to see some PROOF that you're actually old enough to be posting on this site. PROVE IT.

Bitch boy must have had help putting that sentence together. But its only 1 sentence. He normally writes just like he speaks - in ignorant, arrogant white trash trailer park dialect.

OK bitch boy. Just how did you get all of that b.s. out of Bond's comment(S), i.e. enjoys thought of kids being sold in the sex trade, young girls being raped, child sex, etc. Explain that one A.H.---- And your ignorant rant linking the Administration to guns the cartel members are using, apparently to murder kids and their parents in So. America? Explain that one too. Maybe you ought to get off right wing talk radio you're addicted to. You're one step away from it causing you to lose all control of your thought processes. Get this hot sauce boy -- Your ignorance is only exceeded by your whacky white trash logic and plain stupidity. You're a complete waste Bitch boy -- a big zero and the only way you know how to handle that is to blame it all on Obama and liberals and do it by regurgitating all the b.s. you're listening to and reading from the whackos out there.

Poor little liberal Pipedream is so confused at this point he can't decide who should just "STFU", and who needs to dumb down there answers to window-lick coloring book level so he can understand.

Just keep in mind, if you decide to prove anything to the little boi it has to be done ONLY using sites he approves of ... or he won't give you a "pass" - whatever that means :)
