Obama poised to circumvent the American people again
There's a rumor circulating around the beltway that President Obama is contemplating conferring citizenship on all illegal aliens, by executive order. The progressive movement realizes that after the midterms, there will be no appetite for immigration reform without closing the borders so, to preserve the possibility of re-election in 2012, The One is considering the outrageous move of legitimizing all 12-20million aliens.
The assumption we have to make therefor, is that Emanual and Axelrod have calculated that the loss of millions of moderate American votes as a result, will be more than offset by the addition of 8-12million loyal Latino voters. In addition, this move will render void the Arizona law which has been a thorn in Obama's side since it was passed.
Personally, I doubt even Obama has the guts to try this. The outrage across the US would be too great and the rank and file democrats would see it as political suicide. On the other hand, why should Obama care what they think when he doesn't need their support to execute an executive order?
