Intelligent people recognize when they're making mistakes. They correct course when heading in the wrong direction. They work with the people they have to work with, even if they don't like them. Intelligent people accommodate reality that may be different from their heart-felt expectations, wishes, desires. Obama evidences none of those attributes of intelligent people.

The ObaMessiah CLEARLY spawned this mess by letting them know down below that they just had to get here in order to stay! Reuters reported that President Downgrade had appeared in TV ads with Felipe Calderon (recent presidente of Mexico) telling Mexico's ignorant poor that if they came on up to America, Food Stamps on us and free healthcare would be available for them! President Food Stamp has made a mockery of border and visa enforcement. He sees all ILLEGALS as "undocumented democrats" and Big Guvment dependents in training. He has also demoralized and emasculated the Border Patrol by threatening their jobs if they DO their jobs.
I think that those who want to embrace whomever crashes the border (see limousine liberals like Kirsten Powers, etc., ad nauseam) because of their PRESUMED hardships are being RACIST. A liberal is someone who would gladly give you the shirt off of someone else's back. UNLESS such advocates also want to transfer MILLIONS here from places like Asia and Africa who suffer deprivation because people are far better at procreating than they are at living together equitably and successfully and managing and protecting increasingly scarce vital resources. Seriously, WHY SHOULD mere proximity to the border or ability to violate visas connote "rights" to benevolence, "free" welfare stuff, and then amnesty?! And simply consider the lifeboat metaphor-- if America takes in the putatively pitiful simply because they are less fortunate, eventually our lifeboat founders as we degrade into that which the pitiful fled...America ineluctably morphs/devolves into Latin America North.
Here are the direct web sites for Congress for your e-mails and phone calls: http://www.congressmerge.com/onlinedb/ And you can let these proven pros help you send FREE, targeted e-mails: http://www.numbersusa.com/content Keep fighting-- America, the last best hope for the world, WOULD BE a terrible thing to waste and lose! ************************ example: draft e-mail to Congress-- We STRONGLY oppose the looming immigration legislation (S 744, etc., ad nauseam) which would grant legal status without first REALLY securing the border. President Obama has made a mockery of border and visa enforcement. He sees all ILLEGALS as "undocumented democrats" and Big Guvment dependents in training. We have been down this foolish folly road before when President Reagan got talked into a supposed "one-time amnesty" in exchange for promised enforcement-- which was then never funded or effected. That scamnesty led to MANY MILLIONS of net new poor and ignorant ILLEGAL aliens, BUT NO REAL enforcement. THAT is why some say that poverty is growing-- we are simply importing a permanent underclass...we are becoming the Welfare department for Latin America. There is NOTHING "CHEAP" about ILLEGAL alien labor because of their EGREGIOUS social pathology costs-- proclivities to violent crimes, illegitimacy's (70%), dropouts, gangs, "machismo" rapes, barrio blight, alcohol/drug addictions (5 TIMES as high), serial welfare dependence, wretched health habits, and imported diseases. America should embrace only SOME EDUCATED, skilled, LEGAL immigrants, but NOT poor, ignorant ILLEGAL aliens. We should give Green Cards to those to whom we grant advanced degrees. And we should REQUIRE E-verify to work here OR to get guvment services. Simply enforce EXISTING laws, and ILLEGALS will go home soon enough! And clamp down on welfare to ILLEGAL aliens-- it is a SHAMEFUL LIE by apologists and facilitators that they are not swilling welfare funds! ILLEGAL aliens drain "free" guvment services more than citizens do! And ILLEGALS are NOT "just doing jobs Americans won't do"...they are simply displacing our most vulnerable, unskilled/low-skilled who then lean on welfare services. ILLEGALS also remit $30 BILLION+ back to Latin America every year, even as their direct social costs ALONE to us exceed $100 BILLION/year.
recent cogent wisdom on TH (slight edit): right2think Wrote: Barack Obama was a harmonic convergence of bad news for America when he was elected in 2008: 1. He was a neophyte politically at the federal level. He had NEVER been an executive of ANYTHING...not even a lemonade stand 2. The bulk of his political experience was from the toxic and highly partisan political landscape of Chicago. 3. Because of his race and charismatic personality (to the vacuous), the MSM willfully and obsequiously have refused to vet him. Instead of performing its traditional duty as watchdog for the public, the Left-stream media instead became Obama's lap dog. 4. His Chicago political experience led him to attack the opposition right out of the gate instead of working with them, leading to a permanently, sharply divided government. This seems also to be right out of Saul Alinsky's playbook, "Rules For Radicals." (Shrillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on how Alinsky was too mild/tame.) 5. His arrogance has kept him from learning from his mistakes. The end result is a terrible President who has damaged the United States both at home and abroad. Sadly, only now are many seeing thru the Wizard of Ozbama behind the curtain...a new poll shows that Romney would now TROUNCE the ObaMessiah. It seems that many more NOW see that, "There is a difference between the ability to gain election and the capacity to govern" (Hubert Humphrey speaking of then newly-elected Jimma' Carter).

I have sedulously watched politics for a good 5 decades-- I have NEVER SEEN such a carefully-handled AA myth as the ObaMessiah...it is STUNNING that there is NO EVIDENCE of any objective indicator of his intellect---> college grades, test scores, scholarly writings, ANYTHING And then there are the goof-ups that the media protectively dodge-- all 58 states, a Navy "Corpseman," the Austrian language-- things that an educated, supposedly intelligent guy should NOT screw up.
Sea Squirts for Obama! The Sea Squirt is a creature which floats through the ocean, looking for a rock to attach itself to for the rest of its life. Once it finds this rock, it settles down, and eats it's own brain for sustenance, as the brain is no longer needed. The Left seeks to create as many Sea Squirts as possible. The Left does NOT REALLY seek to help the less fortunate (Revrunds Jessuh and Al call 'em "Da' Po' People")-- they seek to make them guvment-dependent voters who embrace Big Brother Big Guvment (sustenance for the Left!)! Already 42% ARE guvment dependent (net takers of tax $), NOT counting the 5% elderly on Medicare/S.S. But as Margaret Thatcher noted, a key problem of wealth transfer taxing is that eventually you run out of OTHER people to tax.
