Anyone?
Did he say any of that today?

Even some of the right wing AM radio wackos are agreeing with Obama today and saying that Republicans should have done this awhile ago.

No problem really with what's being done. I simply have a problem with the way it was done.

It's an Executive Order changing how the Justice Department will enforce current immigration law. Questionably constitutional? Yeah, it is. I can't say that this method was very good, even though the policy itself is, for me, one of Obama's absolute high points. Ironically, Obama is following George W. Bush's legacy. Bush was a speculator abuser of the Executive Order. The left hated him for it, and I don't expect the left to have the same reaction to this, but it really isn't much different. It's still difficult for me, though, because I completely agree with the policy and I wish that the DREAM Act has been passed.

The picture made me laugh.

And then there's this: Fox News Watch: White House Leaked Friday's Immigration Announcement to NYT and Time Magazine | NewsBusters.org

Quote:
Days before President Obama proclaimed a new Justice Department edict concerning the deportation of young illegal immigrants, both the New York Times and Time magazine ran huge stories on Hispanics in America.


Courtesy of the NY Times and Time magazine we now know what the administration's Forward "Leak of the Week" was last week.

Do you have any actual evidence that it was coordinated?

I read that article in Time on my break at work today.

It was pretty interesting, and explained some of why I feel the way I do about the immigration issue.

I think some people here could do well to give it a look.

you do realize you have made your mind available to a subtle brain washing by the Obama collaborators

to be fair your should probably read the new Romney autobiography, Faith of our Founding Fathers, Why America Can be Great Again

yes, exactly. i told my elite liberal gay multiracial media friends to write that article precisely so we could all have a laugh about the fools who believed the lies we wrote. we clinked glasses of obscure organic wine while paying a bunch of Salvadorians we recruited from the 7-11 on Mt Pleasant and Kenyon $10 an hour to lay down Brazilian walnut flooring in the guest bedroom.

whatever. Mitt obviously did the same thing, hiring illegal ghost writers even though he's running for office.
