Obama’s La Raza pandering...
Posted by: McQ on Monday, July 14, 2008

Some of Obama's comments to La Raza:
The system isn't working when a child in a crumbling school graduates without learning to read or doesn't graduate at all. Or when a young person at the top of her class - a young person with so much to offer this country - can't attend a public college.
But don't forget, Obama wants these children who can't read to learn Spanish.

And note the last line and understand the implication - public financing, or a "free" college education to be more specific.
The system isn't working when Hispanics are losing their jobs faster than almost anybody else, or working jobs that pay less, and come with fewer benefits than almost anybody else.
Of course the majority of those are illegal. Look, most people don't have anything against someone who wants to do honest work. But how about coming through the front door instead of crawling through the window? Too much to ask?

Instead of this emotional appeal, he ought to be talking about his plan to streamline the process for guest workers to make it easier and legal for those who want to work here to do so.

But instead, he sticks with emotion:
The system isn't working when 12 million people live in hiding, and hundreds of thousands cross our borders illegally each year; when companies hire undocumented
immigrants instead of legal citizens to avoid paying overtime or to avoid a union; when communities are terrorized by ICE immigration raids - when nursing mothers are torn from their babies, when children come home from school to find their parents missing, when people are detained without access to legal counsel.
So now ICE is terrorizing people? Terrific. Let me ask you - if a president said something like that, what message would you take from it?

That's right, ignore the law, continue to flood the country, the bad guys are the companies which hire you and the government agency which has the job of enforcing our law.

Wonderful.

Scholarships, grants, loans, and ...(gulp) a job. There is a way for everyone.

You know, because this obviously happens every day.

Seriously, this guy makes my stomach turn. Is he really going to be the next President? What a pathetic state we are in that he and McCain are the ’best we have to offer’.

I simply don’t believe this is true. Show me the evidence. Seriously, show me this student.

I want to know why the top of her class person gets better treatment than the middle of the class, or the bottom of the class. What right does she have for some kind of preferred treatment?

(I’m kidding kids...but in the we’re all equal world...why does class position matter? eh?)

Re that young person who "can’t attend a public college" —

My initial reaction is the same as those above, but, as he’s talking to La Raza, I suspect he’s making reference to efforts here and about to bar illegal immigrants from financial support for public college attendance or from enrollment entirely.

But what on earth is with this? —
The system isn’t working when 12 million people live in hiding, and hundreds of thousands cross our borders illegally each year
Huh? It’s so bleeping horrible that helpless, hunted people have to hide, yet thousands on thousands more pour in eagerly all the time? It’s not just the system that isn’t working, it’s the logic of Obama’s emotional appeal. But his unintended implication is ominous. If so many flood in when conditions are less than ideal, what happens when Obama calls off the ICE and paves the border crossings with gold?

The speech in its entirety reaches new heights in promising the moon. Absolutely unbelievable. I think I shall hereafter think of he whose middle name must be masked as Barack Santa Obama. Has a nice Hispanic ring and everything.

I think the system isn’t working when a glib collectivist running on a platform of (to quote Mencken) "promising to set A loose in B’s cornfield"), and with a wife who’s "Cynthia McKinney Lite," has a serious chance of becoming president.

Well apparently it’s clear. If you’re a terrorist, Obama’s your man. He’ll soon be giving Iraq to you. If you’re in the US illegally, Obama’s your man, he’ll soon be giving America to you.

If you’re an American, Obama has something for you too. A hefty tax increase and four years of venomous race relations debate. So much to look forward to.

He also has something else for you. A kick in the butt to learn a new language, so you can communicate with the 12 million Illegal Aliens he’ll be providing blanket amnesty for.

Yeah, that’s CHANGE alright.

At least America is getting a glimps of the wild eyed liberal he really is, instead of the phoney centrist persona his campaign has been painting him to be.
