The Voting Dead

Courtesy of:  The Rude News
Yes, President Obama caused a stir yesterday when he dictated (oops, sorry, poor word-choice there) that young, illegal aliens born (through no fault of their own) should now, and for a non-descript length of time into the future, be considered, as merely, 'young, legal aliens'.

Here is a portion of el Presidente's teleprompted (with exciting audience participation!) speech, courtesy of the New York Times online:




Effective immediately, the Department of Homeland Security is taking steps to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people. Over the next few months, eligible individuals who do not present a risk to national security or public safety will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for work authorization.

Now, let’s be clear. This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It’s not a permanent fix. This is a temporary, stopgap measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people. It is the — it is the right thing to do.



AUDIENCE MEMBER: (Off mic.)

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Excuse me, sir. I — the — it’s not time for questions, sir.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: (Off mic.)

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I — not while I’m speaking.

...

And the answer to your question, sir — and the next time I prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask that question — is this is the right thing to do for the American people. They — I didn’t — I didn’t ask for an argument, I’m answering your question.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: (Off mic.)

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It is the right thing to do for the American people, and here’s why.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: (Off mic) — high unemployment.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Here’s the reason — because these young people are going to make extraordinary contributions and are already making contributions to our society. I’ve got a young person who is serving in our military, protecting us and our freedom. The notion that in some ways we would treat them as expendable makes no sense.

...

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  We have always drawn strength from being a nation of immigrants, as well as a nation of laws. And that’s going to continue. And my hope is that Congress recognizes that and get behind — gets behind this effort. All right? Thank you very much, everybody.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: (Inaudible) — specifically ruled this out, sir, last year.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: What about American workers who are unemployed while you employ foreigners?


O-k-a-y... so now the President has dictated (dang, there's that word again) that the Nation requires a 'temporary, stop-gap measure' to address needs of young illegal aliens who most Americans...  treat as 'expendable'? 

Huh???  When was the last time you tossed away a perfectly-good-Hispanic-youth?  I got six or seven of them working in the garden right now plantin' my Victory Garden - yes sir.

In this thoughtful, yet 'heckled' speech, the President acknowledges that we are a "nation of immigrants, as well as a nation of laws".  However, the President's very actions disregard the collective will of the Legislative Branch of Government. 

Everybody's got it down, right?  As of yesterday, we have a singular branch of government, so the Legislative and Judicial branches just need to step the _ _ _ _ back?  (The missing word is 'heck') 

The Executive Branch will lead not by the rule of law, rather but by 'what's right' (as defined by the Ever-Pandering-Presidential-Candidate-Obama).  

Flashing back, let's revisit what 'President Obama' said in 2011 regarding the demise of the Dream Act, 

“The fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there’s been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the Dream Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It’s just not true.” 

Well, it didn't "used to be true". 

But now it is.  What a difference a year, and bad polling, makes?
  

Next up, President Obama sets his sights on another stalwart constituency for his party:


The voting dead.


"Re-animated by their feckless leader's need for unbridled power, his pursuit of limitless divine-right Executive privilege, and the hunt for fresh Conservatives, an unholy alliance of the registered dead will rise en mass to vote..."

Against Mitt Romney's "Hope and Brains" 

Why?  Because brains are for 'Eating', not for 'Using'...

How do I know this is true?

I seen it on that Intern-Net:


Yup. 

It's true.

There you go.  

Have a nice weekend - but leave them lights on when you go ta sleep at night. 

Just in case O'Bomber's already got the dead up and voting around your town...

If thing's wasn't bad enough already, I hear he's after the Blue Oyster Cult / SNL vote next...

Yeah, more mindless zombies. 

Dang.
