Too bad the setup is in favor of his opposition, whomever they may be.
If there is one issue upon which President Obama is weak among likely voters, it is immigration. Today, Barack Obama stuck to his guns and petitioned the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta to block Alabama’s immigration law.
In lockstep, an opinion appeared on OregonLive.com — a noted leftist mouthpiece — with the statement,
“For the moment and on legal grounds only, Alabama wins. But for months and years ahead, Alabama shows itself to be an epic loser that Oregon and every other state needs to watch as Exhibit A in how to blow holes in the feet: economically, politically, socially. What the law does besides scare people off, as tracked by The New York Times, is to create among those who stay an uneducated and needy underclass. ”
And these august writers on OregonLive.com think illegal aliens from Mexico and other South American countries are not and underclass and are well educated?
Keep up the good work Mr. President. We ignorant people look forward to the election on November 7, 2012.
