    Reid has done the same thing as Boener regarding bills, but most of the bills passed by the House are nonsense bills that they knew in advance would never get through the senate.

    Oh...I'm thinking that logjam on Harry's desk is going to be broken loose. If that stuff is passed by the Republican Senate, that could be considered "getting something done", don't you think?

    Plus, there will be the added benefit of Obama having to get something done.

    Could be, but we will just have to wait and see.

    And there is more at this page: Black Activists Speak Out against Obama Amnesty*Agenda - Amy Ridenour's National Center Blog - A Conservative Blog


    So...this doesn't sound good for Obama and the Democrats. This very well could affect the black vote in 2016. Now, I don't really think black voters will turn to Republicans over just this issue, but I do think it could cause black voters to stay home. I wonder if Democrats are comfortable taking that kind of hit.
    I looked up this Project 21. It's a group of black conservatives that nobody has heard of. Hell, their website looks like something from Geocities.

    Yeah, stop playing the race card. It's not working this late in the game. Specially when you don't know what it is you're discussing.

    Meaning they can access almost all U.S. welfare programs and will with State Welfare Programs too.
    Call your congressman and tell them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill. Have them do their jobs so the Pres doesn't have to do it for them.

    Really?? Posting the link to an article that displays the viewpoint of black leaders is "playing the race card"??? LOL!!

    Now...for sure, this is a conservative group, but if you think nobody's heard of them...well, you would be more accurate if you said, "I haven't heard of them". Here is the bio of just one of this group's members:

    Obama's Executive Order[W:265]-cooper-jpg

    Horace Cooper is an adjunct fellow with the National Center for Public Policy Research, co-chairman of the Project 21 National Advisory Board and a legal commentator.

    Horace averages over 400 talk radio appearances per year representing Project 21, in addition to regular television appearances and interviews by the print media, also for Project 21.

    Horace taught constitutional law at George Mason University in Virginia and was general counsel to U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey.

    All in all, I'd have to say you made a useless post.


    Well, it doesn't matter who it was directed to. It "is" a public forum. It may have been useless to you, but who really cares.

    But it is odd. You would think that in such unsettling times with so many juicy issues that the gop would play a more pleasing tune.


    They don't know how. It isn't in their nature.

    Black leaders? They're literally an unknown group that nobody has heard of. What rallies have they conducted? What dinner events have they hosted? What community are they known in? What neighborhood have they set up shop up? Hell, have you taken a look at their website? An html website claiming a lot of things for people who nobody has ever heard of before this. Be honest, had you heard of this group before this?

    Now...for sure, this is a conservative group, but if you think nobody's heard of them...well, you would be more accurate if you said, "I haven't heard of them". Here is the bio of just one of this group's members:
    I haven't heard of them? Seems like nobody has. I went and looked up news reports about anything they'd done in the past 3 years. They're only mentioned on a blog (run by one of its members), an O'Reilley appearance a year ago and this Horace Cooper pled guilty in the Jack Abramoff scandal. Lol. You've got to be kidding if you think these people are a sign that the black community will turn its back on Democrats.

    Re: Obama's Executive Order[W:265]

    I don't recall a POTUS basically saying 'screw Congress, I am doing it anyway' as often as this one has.

    For a guy that started out with such praise, he is in danger (imo) of being relegated to the history books (assuming Obamacare gets repealed eventually) as noteworthy for the amount of melanin in his skin, his six pack abs and little else.
