    Will the BLS add this to their unemployment formula before or after the election?

    Obama says he can't change immigration laws on his own

    By David Jackson, USA TODAY Updated 2011-07-25

    told Hispanics today he is with them on overhauling the nation's immigration laws -- but he won't use executive orders to alter the law on things such as deportations.

    "Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own," Obama told members of a National Council of La Raza conference who shouted back, "Yes, you can! Yes, you can!"

    "That's not how our democracy functions," Obama responded. "That's not how our Constitution is written."

    I'd be embarassed to pander and kiss ass like this. Democrats have no shame, expecially in an election year. They fight against voter ID, then grant immunity to illegals. Could that agenda be any more obvious?

    And don't you love how the Associate Press refers to them as "certain immigrants" in the headline, instead of illegal immigrants?
    Although Obama's methods are a sleazy way to keep illegal immigrants here legally with the workers card, I don't think he is advocating that they be made citizens that can vote.

    What he may be trying to do though is rally the legal Hispanic voters to support him.

    Could be.

    I read yesterday Trump's claim that Obama has begged a favor from the Saudis to keep gas prices low until after the election. Thought about beginning a thread and then realized that I didn't know whether it should go into the Conspiracies forum or where. I mean, it's Trump, after all, and the idea that anybody could be this cynical is just too awful to think about.

    But so is the notion that what's under discussion here could also really be that cynical.

    That's exactly what he's doing.

    I don't know if I would believe that, but I wouldn't put it past him. He's in re-election mode. The whole gay marriage issue along with this in my opinion are ploys to get re-elected or fire up his base.

    I have a problem with it, unless they will have to pay the fee's like everyone else who came here legally?

    Well, in all fairness, this isn't actual citizenship--according to The One--but just a measure to keep these kids from being deported.

    It's not a fix and it's not permanent, which purdy much makes it a political stunt to win votes. Just shows how scared Krewe Obama really is.

    Thing is, soon as the election is over, these kids get thrown to the wolves if Obama wins. He's not going to fight the matter with the congress in the court, so he'll drop them like a hot potato. One of the most cynical and calculated election moves I seen. I'm so disgusted with our POTUS right now.
