jvl: King Something: 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.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.
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.
soy_bomb: Oh that debunked claim again?
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?
finaboy: HellRaisingHoosier: 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 2011392,862 people were deported in 2010390,000 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.Yeah, but what's the count on how many weapons we've supplied them with vs. how many of our "boots on the ground" have been murdered by said weapons?

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.
Mrtraveler01: Did you really link to Judicial Watch?
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.
