The Panderer-in-Chief

Quick question: What do you do when Unemployment is still over 8%? Why, you stop deporting folks who are here illegally, so that they can legally compete for the ever-dwindling number of jobs available in the country. That way you can make a blatant appeal to a voting bloc that you need, ….even though you have to bypass Congress and that Constitution-thingamajig to do so.

President ‘Pander’ strikes again.

From today’s Associated Press:

President Barack Obama says his plan to stop deporting younger illegal  immigrants who came to the U.S. as children will make the system “more fair,  more efficient and more just.”

The president says it “makes no sense to expel talented young people” who are  essentially Americans. He says he was taking the action in the absence of action by Congress “to fix our broken system.”

A man in the Rose Garden asked Obama while he was speaking, “Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?” Obama responded that “this is the right thing to do.”

This announcement comes in the same week as the following Time cover story. I’m sure the President’s announcement today was just a coincidence, and not part of a larger, coordinated Narrative.

Yep; JUST a coincidence.
