First, an ad from American Crossroads devishly disguised in the red, white, and powder blue mantle of the Obama color scheme:
..and then this cartoon by the incomparable Ramirez comparing our former presidents' famous remarks to The Pantload's soaring rhetoric:
And then there's always the latest gambit that The First Fool has thrown agaist the wall to see if it will stick: alone and without the consent or approval of congress, he's gonna order the cessation of deportation of young illegals entering this country:
The Obama administration announced Friday it will stop deporting illegal immigrants who come to the country at a young age.Many point out that Romney, appearing on Face the Nation this Sunday (his first non-Fox "unsafe" appearance), needs to point out that this is an election gambit designed to pander to the intersection of two subsets of the electorate Obama desperately needs: young folks and illegals -- and, by extension, Hispanics. He can also say that the Tinkers-to-Evers-to-Chance on this is the bleeding heart mantra of “would you deport an innocent 16-year-old child who has done nothing, obeyed the law, and his/her only fault is that they were brought here by their parents” is extended to the parents: “Would you deport the parents of an innocent 16-year-old child who..”
The politically charged decision comes as Obama faces a tough reelection fight against Republican Mitt Romney, with Hispanic voters in swing states seen as a key bloc.
The change in policy could allow as many as 800,000 immigrants who came to the United States illegally not only to remain in the country without fear of being deported, but to work legally, according to a senior administration official speaking to reporters Friday.
Obama is set to make a statement at 1:15 p.m. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the new policy Friday morning.
“Our nation’s immigration laws must be enforced in a firm and sensible manner,” Napolitano said in a statement. “But they are not designed to be blindly enforced without consideration given to the individual circumstances of each case. Nor are they designed to remove productive young people to countries where they may not have lived or even speak the language. Discretion, which is used in so many other areas, is especially justified here.”
And that means that those folks (the parents) will be here to take jobs from legal immigrant workers and American citizens AND perforce, their children will need to continue their education and have their healthcare paid for by the taxpayer.
I personally think, like the other strategies tried by this gang that couldn't shoot straight -- the war on wimminses, the war on dogs, the war on Bain Capital, the war on Ann Romney, the war on war, etc. -- that this will only succeed in placing a large orange Chef Boy-ar-Dee stain on the plaster and another messy pile of noodles on the floor below.
HUMOROUS OBAMA PALAVER VID UPDATE: Tying the ribbons on this post, here's a really funny bit done by the indomitable Ed Morrissey over on Hot Air that nails it using Caroline Af Ugglas’ “Nothing Left to Say”:
