culebra: I'll admit that concession isn't a hard choice this year with an incumbent in the White House and a fractured GOP. I think Thune might have made a decent candidate for the GOP with serious backing, but he's pretty green still, and probably eyeing one of the upcoming elections.


I see your point about trying to beat an incumbent, but even assuming an open seat I don't see anyone that could appeal to enough mainstream voters...not with the Primary Gauntlet of Crazy any GOP nominee has to go through. To make it through, any candidate has to make themself completely toxic in a General Election just on their own merits, regardless of who they are running against.

9beers: Get what done? We know it's not securing the border and depleting illegals, so what is it?


You're wrong.
We've increased security by added boots on the ground and border surveillance.

Statistics:
400,000 people were deported in 2011
392,862 people were deported in 2010
390,000 people were deported in 2009
(FYI - fewer than 120,000 people were deported in 2001)

There have been more deportations by ICE and Border Patrol under President Obama then there were by President Bush's and Clinton's administrations combined.

what_now: He leaves office January 20th, 2017. That's one month short of 5 years.

I'm sorry you aren't good at counting, subby.


He said another 5 years coming, as in he doesn't have the time yet. He didn't say I have 5 years left. English, how does it work? Right now he has 11 months left, and if he wins he has another 4 coming.

Deplete them of what? Also, stop talking.
Obama administration reports record number of deportations (new window)

Oh that debunked claim again?

Did you really link to Judicial Watch?

Might as well link it to Free Republic. They're both as credible.


God, it never gets any funnier watching liberals practice intentional ignorance. Can you refute the numbers? Or is it only untrue because it goes against your politics?

They were already debunked here:

Cubicle Jockey: He linked to two places, neither of which debunked what he claimed to.
Both of them discussed that the criminal percentage of those deported has gone down.
Neither of them addressed the raw number of deportations.


So... "yes" to the first question and "no" to the second.
 
2012-02-23 08:30:34 PM

soy_bomb: Oh that debunked claim again?


Claim in thread: Most total deportations.

Additional claim in article that wasn't mentioned in thread: 55% of the deportations included those who had committed felonies or misdemeanors.

Debunking: Total number of deportations not in dispute but not enough of them were criminals. Evidence for this is a chart that says "Most Serious ICE Charge" which, at best, supports the claim that these people being mentioned in the 55% number may not have been picked up for new charges while saying nothing about prior convictions that didn't lead to deportation under the pre-Obama admin way of doing things. In other words, an illegal immigrant with a DUI from 2000 who got picked up by ICE now wouldn't have a new ICE charge but would still be someone who would qualify as one with a criminal record for the 55% claim.

So, soy_bomb, you managed to "debunk" a claim that wasn't claimed by citing materials that don't even address the claim you were trying to debunk and which don't even sufficiently debunk the claim they were addressing.

It takes a special kind of derping to lose in a fight with your own strawman.

jvl: Corvus: jvl: So why not start with a proposal now? Or back when both houses of Congress were Democratic? Even GW Bush managed to actually make a proposal despite a lack of popularity for the idea. It's almost as if he was not really serious about this issue.

Because congress is busy with important matters like telling women they are slutty whores who should shut up and keep their legs together.

The Republicans have had exactly one house of Congress for 13 months now, so naturally you blame them for everything that happened in the last 37 months?

How about this: if he's really serious. Propose SOMETHING. Get both Republicans and Democrats on record with an actual vote. Or, if not serious, he can keep on trolling the hispanic voters.


Only thirteen months?

You seem to be unaware of the filibuster, which the GOP has been using very frequently over the past 37 months. They have a cloture-proof 'majority' in the Senate almost the entire time President Obama has been in office and they have not been the least bit shy in exploiting this.

No doubt. The GOP still could have made the worse decision and promoted someone they actually thought could win (and I agree they wouldn't anyway), but to their credit they've allowed their dross to take center stage. The question I have is what the GOP could hope to gain by actually trying to win this time out? I guess I don't understand why it is necessary to name who they might have gone with in such a scenario.

Just because they made the wiser decision doesn't mean there was a winning move for them. I get the sense they are regrouping for 2016, but like you I can't imagine who among them will be a successful candidate. They're pretty much farked into the forseeable future.

So, it's entirely outside of the realm of possibility that Judicial Watch referenced a study in order to misrepresent it with the air of credibility lent by it? Really?

You know, those Milgram Experiments - I'd say it's a pretty good case for the fact that most of the KGB was pretty decent people; obviously, there wasn't anything wrong, then.

Even if that is true, which you've given no evidence of, since your own source agreed with the same total numbers claimed in the article you were "debunking," it STILL doesn't even address the fact that there are more deportations under Obama than under prior presidents.

Does Obama plan on having both houses plus a two-thirds majority in the Senate in the next five years?

And again, even Filibusters leave voting records. And nothing prevents the House from voting. So farking PROPOSE SOMETHING instead of vague-handwavy I'm-on-yourside bullfark and get stuff on record.

You mean like the DREAM act which keeps getting filibustered? There are already proposals out there that aren't going anywhere, Obama's would just be one more of them.
 
2012-02-23 09:18:29 PM

Catsaregreen: I HATE Obama with a passion, but have conceded the fact that he's gonna win again in November. Apparently the Republicans are too stupid to find a suitable candidate.


You may need to reassess the situation as: Republicanism is too stupid in general.

Conservatism vs. Republicanism

Conservatism is not the complete and utter lack of change on social or economic issues. It is the slow, steady, introduction of modest change, then the validation of that change prior to further action. It can be easily addressed by thinking of the standard model for running almost any sort of governance framework, eg: Plan - > Do -> Check -> Act.

Conservatism is essentially a methodology that can be applied regardless of ideology (and it usually is by people who are just plain logical).It is a way of doing something, not what must be done, eg the "How" not the "What" or "Why".

Republicanism is an ideology espoused by people that advocates introducing radical changes to government with minimal controls or governance. Indeed, the motto of Republicanism is, "The government that governs least governs best". They have no established process or methodology for managing change, as they are really not interested in managing anything (except maybe who you put your pee pee into, but that's just a weird outlier when looking at the whole)

Conservatism actually used to mean something respectable. It meant that you were cautious and stable. Now it means you're a reactionary nutbag that listens to bad advice to buy gold coins and commemorative plates while you sit around fantasizing about how valuable they'll be when the rapture finally happens.

Does it matter? The U.S. is still sending literally ton of weapons out every day to every corner of the Earth. Either way these people are going to get their hands on our guns. Guns are not the issue, and they never will be (or at least as far as immigration is concerned).

We need a solid defense and strategy to combat illegal immigration and the manipulators of migrants, as well as a realistic and "porous" immigration policy.

The BATFE was expanded under Bush, and has been running amok ever since. These thugs run high speed and low drag like they're mandated by god to take every risk possible and impose whatever stupid rules they want. They've been doing stupid shiat well before Obama got there and I wouldn't be surprised at all they were keeping the details about Fast And Furious under wraps so they could claim all the glory.

The planning for this complete failure started with a related operation designed to use the SAME EXACT TACTICS, under BUSH.

You can't try and lay this at Obama's feet if you can't go back to the very beginning of this fiasco unless you can prove that it was Obama or Holder to initiated the program. Neither did, that would be Bush and more specifically Alberto Gonzales.

But don't let facts get in the way of the narrative, that's not American, because socialism, or whatever strawman you're going to throw out there.

MEANWHILE, Republican presidential candidates, without even having won their party's nomination, regularly say things like "When I am president". Of course, when they do it, it's because they want to sound confident and strong because that appeals to voters.

I asked my neighbor about this
www.rudebadmood.com
He said he agrees with the attempt to support the recovery by rate reductions and stimulus spending. But that the rate of spending may not create a hedge between the cyclic recessionary periods.

He's right you know.

soy_bomb: Jesterling: 9beers: Get what done? We know it's not securing the border and depleting illegals, so what is it?
Deplete them of what? Also, stop talking.
Obama administration reports record number of deportations (new window)

Oh that debunked claim again?


Neither of your links says he isn't deporting more illegals, the first one even says "record number of deportations" they are addressing the percentage of that record number of deported aliens that have engaged in other criminal activity. It stands to reason that simply deporting more illegals, simply because they are here illegally, would see the percentage of illegals that are guilty of other crimes being deported drop.

Mrtraveler01: If you would've just linked to the original source instead of just Judicial Watch. You might've had more credibility.


He linked to both in the first thing he said on this topic to pretend he had multiple sources for the info. What he had was a JW article commenting on (and linking back to) the study abstract whatever thing so that he could get the data interpreted through two filters and he still didn't understand what it was. Or hoped no one else would.

Cubicle Jockey: Mrtraveler01: Did you really link to Judicial Watch?

He linked to two places, neither of which debunked what he claimed to.
Both of them discussed that the criminal percentage of those deported has gone down.
Neither of them addressed the raw number of deportations.


You said it better. Hat's off.
