The obamanation is stirring up immigration for yet another distraction, think Saul Alinsky marxist tactics, away from the obamanation's miserable economic failures. The current American electorate sheeple are so dumbed down that they don't even grasp the full significance of the obamanation's lawless overreach and trampling of the Constitution whith his executive fiat giving amnesty to 1.4 million illegal mexican children in return for hispanic votes. "It was the right thing to do", explained the obamanation. The hell it was. Whatever happened to the rule of law? The US USED to be a country of laws.
You make a great point...but I bet saul alinsky never imagined that 100 million AMERICANS would own over 350 million firearms.

As stunning as it sounds, there are STILL some Americans whose first language is English that actually support Obama over Romney. Unbelievable.

You bet, you are a true American and we need many more, this country is facing a financial melt down and there is no leadership in the White House. Keep your powder dry.

Placebo Roy, Obama's #1 Boy Toy Topix Czar, believes "everything" he hears from Media Matters who a have weekly conference with Obama in the White House in regards to what talking points to spew forth and how to best cover up Obama's fck ups and lies.

Placebo Boy also believes everything he hears from Calypso Louie, otherwise known as Louis The "Fairy" Con.

Also, The Daily Kos and people like Ed Shultz and Lawrence O'Donnel play a big roll in Placebo Boys mentality too.

Placebo Boy must have been a cheap brain wash job for the far left democrats. He's 100% against anyone who doesn't tow the far left extremist democrat party line.

At the risk of being called a "BALD FACED LIAR" by the Placebo man, I'll say: Obama is an abject failure at running the U.S. economy.

Immigration is the Most Un-important thing that Americans have to deal with right now. Fast and Furious now has Obama personally involved by virtue of his hiding evidence from Congress. By executive privilege you may only hide things that pertain to you personally so what that means is that Obama has implicated himself in the death of the border patrol agent by using executive powers to hide evidence. Immigration pales in comparison to our president in chief being on the verge of impeachment along with the prosecution of his AG. THIS is the story today.

Please take note that immigration and Fast and Furious both have to do with this administration's dealings with MEXICO.

By now everyone has figured out that Obama's embrace of Gay Marriage and Illegals is just a ploy to take the focus off his abject failure to effectivelydeal with the economy, unemployment and normal issues that an effective President is elected to deal with by definition.

He wasn't elected to be Social Engineer in Chief.

Where can we find this "definition"? I'm curious to see if it actually exists or if you are just making stuff up.

People here need to really understand what an American is!!! Wow so much hate. Don't be afraid of Hispanics working in government. It is like everything else, if you are the best at what you do; you will get hired!
My family has been American for seven generations, so what are you trying to tell me?!!!
I am afraid of hispanics in government!!!! People like that Gloria Molina have consistently talked about the gains of hispanics and how they must maintain and gain more seats in government. Look at other hispanic organizations, all they do is exist is to promote more hispanics in government!!!

Then, when you look at a proponderance of hispanics in government, you look at Bell, CA, and the corruption and the fact that a town exists in corruption in the US, with most of the people there are illegal aliens. This is the way we will look if we allow more hispanics!!!

It's not about hating hispanics, they have said this was their agenda!!! Remember reconquista, or whatever?!!! You can't ignore this!!! The whole thing about illegal immigration is to make more hispanice who are illegal aliens, legal! Even hispanic who are American citizens back this!!! Where have you been? What rock have you been hiding under?!!!

P.S., "The best at what you do"?!!! Think again. Remember, America was a great country before illegal aliens came here! That's the reason they came! The best that you do is not what it is about, it is about illegal aliens accepting subminimal wages and working like the 3rd world slaves they are, and driving down our wages. No, Americans are not lazy or non competitive, they just expect fair treatment! I guess that is where illegal aliens came from, and continue to accept!!!

I know a lot about immigration. Many years ago I was an immigrant. My family has a history of immigration. We're like rats,and of course my Poppa was a rolling stone,wherever he laid his hat, he called his home.

Many years ago I immigrated to that great bastion of socialism called France. I spent my draft dodging years there. I spent many days and nights in an elegant chateau eating quiche,sipping the finest wine,and generally enjoying myself. I did attend pro-war rallies with some of my French rightwing aristocrats on many occasions. Moreover,I didn't want to put my butt on the line. I had big plans for myself. My manifest destiny if you will. My plan didn't include fighting in Vietnam. I am a man of elegance and distinctive taste. A member of the 1%. I'm much too precious to be spending time in a hostile milieu engaged in combat.

It's in France where I learned about crony socialism. It is here,in France where I developed my ultimate ideology to privatize the profits and socialize the costs.

See here:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/05 ...

I also learned the concept of haute couture. This concept has stayed with me since coming back to America. It's why my hair is perfectly coiffed and dyed. It's why I maintain a perfect tan. It's why I wear only the most expensive designer clothes. It's why I have my nails done 3 times a week. Having perfectly manicured nails is indicative of rugged American individualism.Especially for a man. I am a man's man. That's why I want to be your president. I am the little poodle to Obam's Big Dawg!

I understand most Americans will not understand my tenets and concepts. That's ok. I'm not concerned with properly representing the majority of Americans. I want to responsibly represent the 1% of our nation. Those that matter. Those that have made this nation great. Men such as Donald Trump.

Come,join my revolution. I am Mitt.

Viva Le Romney Revolution!

As the article states:
"Still, Romney's own immigration policy is unclear as he works to distance himself from harsh conservative rhetoric that was common during the extended GOP primary season earlier in the year."
I do not believe Hispanics (or anyone else) want shifty stiff characterless leaderless "unclear" RMoney as our next president.
Politics is a chess game, Obama plays his game,Romney is only playing the same rule of tact,one counters the other in order to win . That's the way it's always been.

You may not know that Brown signed the Dill Act which was the beginning of the end for California. Now the hundreds of billions in underfunded public employee pensions will continue to grow until the State becomes insolvent. Voters committed civic and financial suicide as Brown is a union owned puppet. So sad.
