STOP DEPORTING ILLEGALS! scream democrats.
Washington (CNN) – While immigration reform is stalled in Congress, some members are calling on President Barack Obama to take the matter into his own hands, urging him to suspend deportations of undocumented immigrants.
Thirty Democratic members of Congress wrote in a letter that he has the authority to pause deportations of undocumented immigrants, urging “the sensible and moral step of stopping deportations.” […]
“Mr. President, you do have the power to stop what’s going on,” Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-New York, said at a news conference on Thursday.
In their letter, the members point to executive action in 201,2 when Obama exercised his discretion to suspend deportations of children of undocumented immigrants, known as Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals.
“Please, Mr. President, do something,” said Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Illinois. “We need you to take the kinds of positive action to help our families.”
Again democrats beseech Obama to ignore written law. But why would they want that, and why right now?
To stop the bleeding.
Obama is cratering among women and Hispanics.
The worst news is that Obama is rapidly losing support from what is usually a reliable base- the lesser educated:
Democrats should be far more worried about white women who do not have a higher education. The numbers are astounding: In the latest Kaiser poll, 50 percent have a “very unfavorable” view of the law—9 points higher than in October. An additional 13 percent view it “somewhat unfavorably.” Indeed, antipathy among blue-collar white women runs even deeper than the most conservative white demographic group, blue-collar white men (59 percent of whom hold an unfavorable view, Kaiser found).
Remarkably, only 16 percent of blue-collar white women have a favorable view of Obamacare. They disapprove of it by a 4-1 ratio.
Obama is even losing democrat support:
Hispanics are finding Obama less and less palatable as well:
PRINCETON, NJ — President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 41% in November, down 12 percentage points from 53% last December, his high-water mark since his first year in office. Hispanics’ approval has dropped 23 points over the last 12 months, the most among major subgroups, and nearly twice the national average. His approval rating also showed above-average declines among low-income Americans, nonwhites, moderates, and moderates who identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party.
This is really not difficult to understand. The media continues to dance around it, with the cheerleaders at the NY Times saying Obama “misspoke” made “incorrect promises” and saying things that “were not true” but the fact is Obama lied. He is a liar and IMO, a pathologic liar.
The NY Times has a “high threshold” for saying someone lied:
“We have a high threshold for whether someone lied,” he told me. The phrase that The Times used “means that he said something that wasn’t true.” Saying the president lied would have meant something different, Mr. Rosenthal said — that he knew it was false and intended to express the falsehood. “We don’t know that,” he said
Unless, of course, it’s George Bush.
In January 2006, the Times published an editorial criticizing George W. Bush and calling attention to what the Times pronounced as “a couple of big, dangerous lies.”
What were those two “lies”? The first was that the Bush administration’s domestic spying apparatus “is carefully aimed” at those working with al-Qaeda, when in fact by the Times’s lights the program “has violated the rights of countless innocent Americans.” That’s some fairly clumsy–and dishonest–sleight of hand from the Times in what amounts to a disagreement over just how “careful” the surveillance had been. What was the other “lie”? That with the domestic surveillance now in place 9/11 could have been prevented. Perhaps that is an unlikely justification, but any threshold which considers that a “lie” is low indeed.
The NY Times is one huge monument to Obama sycophancy and they will no doubt continue to carry the water for Obama and you can expect democrats rev up the war on women machine, but rational people are beginning to catch on.
But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the light of truth. Prithee, grant it accommodation.
