It was going to be a two pronged attempt to get more voters for the Dems in November. Obama has seen that the method of supporting amnesty for illegal aliens is NOT popular with the American people. So he only has the single prong of hoping that Puerto Rico will want to be a state, and support leftists.
Without action on the part of the government, it is up to Al Sharpton, Obama’s man in the streets, to convince Hispanic voters that the Dems still “care” about their issues.
Al Sharpton will continue to paint the Arizona enforcement of existing immigration law in racial terms, though Hispanics are a multi racial polyglot, same as the population of the U.S.
Fun boycotts of Arizona are coming from the leftists. San Francisco libs are prominent in threatening to avoid trade and tourism with the desert state. The best one is coming from geographically challenged leftists who wants to boycott Arizona tea (even though the company is headquartered in Brooklyn New York.)
Pay attention to the lack of consideration our government gives to the human rights issues of Cubans, for example the most significant doctor and journalist, Guillermo Farinas. What is the big difference between Cubans, whose plight is ignored by the Dems, and other Hispanics???
CUBAN AMERICANS ARE 90 PERCENT REPUBLICAN VOTERS. That’s the difference. Your human rights issues don’t count if you’re not with the Obama regime.
Now, back to the destruction of the US economy through government regulation of energy sources. Obama has to do a quick back pedal from his statement about the safety of oil rigs after the spill from BP’s rig in the Gulf . (Check out the video from April 2 at Real Clear Politics)
Do you suppose there are terrorists or criminals engaging in some criminal operation on that rig?
Do you wonder if Obama can effect a government take over of BRITISH Petroleum ??? ;-)
