At any rate, our border problem isn't a democratic or republican problem, its an American problem that is in conflict with the interests of big business and globalisation. I suppose it feels goodfor those people who seek to minimise it by blaming it all on Obama.
    Is that all you got? Is to throw up your hands, and whine that poor Obama gets blamed for stuff? Good Grief.

    What makes you think I'm throwing my hands up. I'm still here trying. Having the border problems, decades old as they are, blamed on Obama doesn't hurt my feelings, I'm very displeased with him, much as the majority of Americans are, as evidenced in his performance polls. But blaming this all on Obama is hilarious, only if it didn't mean that we will continue to have unsecured borders in the future because of it.

    Immigration Reform is going to be the issue this election cycle. This invasion has clearly been planned to bring this issue to the forefront. It will be a Democratic Party talking point, and it has the added benefit of sweeping all the outrageous controversies off the front pages.

    Not easily. We've already seen how positively the electorate responds to these juvenile slogans.

    It just sounded, or read like you were signaling that you thought that Obama was unfairly being called out for this mess today. And although you may or may not support his presidency, he is absolutely failing at this aspect of it.

    the president cannot act unilaterally on this issue. immIgration requires legislation to be created by congress, and guess what? no piece of immigration legeslation seems to have a chance of getting through congress.

    Oh yeah? Remember, "I've got a pen, and a phone"??? Remember the so called "Dream act"? But I am glad you understand how it is supposed to work, now if only it wasn't just nice words mouthed only to give cover for this criminal in the WH.

    The problem is that you do not understand the function and limitations of an Executive Order. Especially as compared to legislation...If you want, let me know and I will explain the differences.
