Glad we have all these immigration threads to distract from the upcoming shooting war with Russia.

Why you take so long, obama?

I think a claim like that might need a couple more details.

I can't remember. Have socialists historically thrown open their borders?

Since Bond always wins.......it looks like Romney will be President.

He's the Troll-in-Chief. Getting Republicans mad and acting crazy is the centerpiece of his campaign.

Closer to the election, he's going to do the same thing with an important women's issue.
 
2012-06-19 10:22:38 AM  
It's no trap, he's simply bringing to the surface what was already festering beneath. Like throwing salt in a wound, it only hurts because you opened your vulnerability up in the first place.
 
2012-06-19 10:22:42 AM  
It's a trap that depends on the opposition to reliably act like douchebags. So, yeah, it'll work.
 
2012-06-19 10:22:42 AM  
I guess that makes the GOP the old-fashioned, sexist alcoholic with a penchant for violence? Minus the charm.

Because doing it now was more effective. The GOP has no time to counter it before the election.

Obama: I believe that women are intelligent, capable, contributing members of society.
GOP: WHAAAAARGAAAARBLE.

This is not a repeat from 2009-today, and will never be repeated again.

Timing. The electorate has such a short memory that in six months it will be, "Obama hasn't done anything on emigration!" So this is within the window.

Obama learned his politics from the Daley machine.
 
2012-06-19 10:25:33 AM  
There isn't a group of people in this country whose reaction is easier to predict than that of Conservatives.

Obama is the first Democrat to realize this and use it to his advantage.

Republicans have spent the better part of the last two decades fine-tuning their well-oiled outrage machine. Obama figured out how to get them to turn that on themselves like Elmer Fudd staring down the barrel of his own shotgun.
 
2012-06-19 10:25:59 AM  
Well he has to. Relying on the congressional Democrats to promote a progressive cause would be like waiting for the Keystone Kops supervised by Ma and Pa Kettle to save the day.

Damn.

Because he doesn't give a damn about Hispanics, its just pandering. That its the right thing to do is just coincidence.

Rightwing Nutjob outrage is so predictable and their position on issues that set them off is so offensive to the vast majority of Americans. Romney is going to have a hard time keeping them is check to appear an acceptable President.

You'd figure someone would have figured out that outrage you can set your watch to would be something to capitalize on before now, but you can set your watch to democrats snatching defeat from the jaws of victory too so it's like the irresistible force against the immovable object or the chicken and the egg or something.

It's OK, I had the same thought, too - "How did it take this long for anyone to realize how to use this to their advantage?"

Then I realized we were talking about the Democratic Party.

Obama will come out in favor of protecting Social Secutity against the Ryan Plan. Romney will have support the Ryan Plan else not be conservative enough. The result will be retirees running from Romney and Obama will win Florida.

Right, you should be mad at Obama for doing the right thing because you don't like his reason for doing it. It's like when your girlfriend gives you a bj when you get home you have to stop her and say "Hon, are you doing this because I'm sexy or is it because you had a sex dream about someone else and in your crazy mind that makes you feel guilty. Because if it's the latter I'm going to have to put and end to it."

From the never gonna happen files: Obama will pay for Medicare by allowing Americans to buy in to the plan at a reasonable rate. Introducing customers from a lower risk pool will lower the cost of the program for everyone, it will be one step closer to single payer, and the GOP would flip out.

"Well, you are also talking about people that came over at 16 years of age," Farenthold told CNN. "At that point you had a say in it and that looks more like amnesty."

Can I assume then that they will be putting forward legislation to amend statutory rape laws as well?

Ummm, mad about it? ghare asked a question and I answered as honestly as I could. In fact the consensus among the liberals here seems to be the same. They are just phrasing it as "huehuehue, nation's first troll president"

Sadly, this. It's a purely political move to curry favor with hispanic voters in an election year.

I understand Obama having to do what he has to do to get elected, as Romney is inexplicably close in polls, but still.
