Remember Mr. "No Red States/No Blue States/Only United States"? Barack Obama has once again threw the stench of racism at those with whom he diagrees.
While in Colombia earlier today Mr.Obama presented his objection to Mitt Romney's support of the Arizona ID law in purely racial/ethnic terms:
"We now have a Republican nominee who said that the Arizona laws are a model for the country … and these are laws that potentially would allow someone to be stopped and picked up and asked where their citizenship papers are based on an assumption."
Mr. Obama purports himself to be a Constitutional scholar. Larry Tribe even described Mr. Obama as the most intelligent law student in the history of Harvard law school, or some such ridiculous nonsense. Even a first year law student could readily grasp that Arizona SB1070 creates no greater risk of race based enforcement than do the identification requirements of corresponding federal law-a law the President purports to enforce. Based on his self-proclaimed expertise in constitutional jurisprudence it seems rather unlikely that the President has a genuine misunderstanding of Arizona SB1070.
The President's purpose, is, of course, to first divide Hispanic voters from the rest of America and then to provide them with an external enemy-other Americans. Employing the same cynical logic as is commonly practiced in Islamic capitals across the world the President desperately needs to distract Hispanic voters from the economic devastation Labor/Socialist/Democrat policy has brought to the Americans of Hispanic ancestry.
When the Democrats took control of Congress in February 2007 unemployment among Hispanics was only 5.2%. March 2012 see Hispanic unemployment remaining over ten percent. LSD economic policy has resulted in the Hispanic communities loss of millions of jobs and billions of dollars of income.
For a President who previously told Hispanics that Republicans are their enemy while boasting of record numbers of accelerated deportations, today's Presidential promise of second term action on "comprehensive immigration reform" is unique only in its sheer effrontery. President Obama had filibuster proof LSD super majorities in both houses of Congress for two years and did nothing for Hispanics, other than preside over the loss of millions of Hispanic jobs and the collapse of thousands of Hispanic businesses. Why now would the Hispanic voter believe him?
No, today's divisive attack on other Americans from the pulpit of a foreign shore, where he purports to represent us all, adds only an unseemly emphasis to a Presidency distinguished only in the animosity it hisses at all who disagree.
