You mean money that our citizens had already paid...as in taxes? Wouldn't it be foolish if you left your savings in an account for the state to own?
Kool must be a sexist!

Were you running a tally of give vs take? If not, it's hot air. You don't want to see that comparison, but go ahead and post it if you have it.

As far as I'm concerned, the cost was worth every penny we spent after listening to the speech. Killing Osama has helped him get his mojo back and now he's on a roll. The speech was a real tear jerker and a breath of fresh air for those of us waiting to become legal.

Do it legally and most if us aren't gonna bitch, but some of your brethren refuse to do even that.

My grandmother legally immigrated into this country in the 50's, yeah it took her time but she did it.

Just work at it and don't demand a hand out.

I'm not demanding a thing. President Obama made it clear today that he and his party are more than happy to give it to me, free and clear.

I thought this was his second visit. Mayor Crook gave him some barbecue sauce.

Out of everything you could have said about the bag of hot air, you chose to bring his balls into it, nice. The only way he carries them is in his mouth. I suppose that gets you excited too. An executive order ey? Guess you were disappointed as he did nothing but take up oxygen and waste taxpayer monies on his protection. Oppression? That's laughable. The only ones who've suffered are the taxpayers who've carried illegals.

I think the mountain lion roaming downtown has bigger balls then Obama and i'm sure carries them much better.

I will be there with bells on. This President has balls the size of Church bells and I cannot wait to see how he carries them. Hopefully he will just issue an executive order while here granting full citizenship to all those who have suffered under the oppression of so much totalitarian nonsense.

Except he won't actually do it since he talks about punishing those entering illegally. You're about 30 years late for that deal when Reagan did the amnesty with a big friendly smile.

I agree. Tax money should be well spent, like rewarding CEOs of failed banks with millions each. Do you know the comparison of the cost of illegals vs corporate welfare and corruption?

If any other of our presidents had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head?

If any other of our presidents joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who's side he was on?

If any other of our presidents had pronounced the Marine Corps like Marine Corpse, would you think him an idiot?

If any other of our presidents had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one foreign company had an accident, would you have agreed?

If any other of our presidents had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87000 American workers unemployed would you support him?

If any other of our presidents had been the first President to need a Tele-Prompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If any other of our presidents had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take the First Lady to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had reduced your retirement plan holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympic Athletes, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought it a proud moment for America?

If any other of our presidents had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If any other of our presidents had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had stated that there were 57 states in the United States, wouldn't you have had second thoughts about his capabilities?

If any other of our presidents would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympic Games would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town, would you not have thought he was a self important, conceited, egotistical jerk.

If any other of our presidents had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, wouldn't you have winced in embarrassment?

If any other of our presidents had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

If any other of our presidents' administrations had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If any other of our presidents had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If any other of our presidents had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have ever approved.

If any other of our presidents had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 21 months -- so you have at least that much time to come up with an answer.

Every statement and action in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

The best sentence in that speech was that illegals would have to "pay taxes, pay a fine and learn ENGLISH!" Unfortunately nothing was said about welfare, food stamps and the rest of the stuff that they receive. Too bad the legals that live here don't learn English...so sad.

The saddest part of our Commander in Chief's visit to El Paso was the boos by the majority of Mexican JUTEP students on the subject of the border fence. The biggest mistake was to give out tickets to JUTEP students and not American Veterans groups or soldiers from Ft. Bliss. The majority of the students are not from El Paso and if they are they do not pay taxes, they are living with mom and dad. I for one being neither Republican or Democrat support the border fence, I also feel very disappointed in the selection of handing out tickets to the Mexican JUTEP students, they do not have a concept of respect for the Commander in Chief of the United States.

I was a little taken aback by that comment by him, but like you I agree it was the best part. It's too bad that it will never happen..... I think politicians will somehow hand those in the Country illegally a free pass to stay and I equate that with welfare - those that are handed things for free with little to no effort only take advantage and thus the cycle continues.
