More "Bitter Clingers"?

Today, President Obama spoke at the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast. A transcript of his remarks is here.

The part that really jumped out at me was when the President asserted that "[immigration] is a subject that can expose raw feelings and feed our fears of change.  It can be tempting to think that those coming to America today are somehow different from us."

Typical Obama move -- reminiscent of the "bitter clingers" remark, isn't it? Anybody who isn't for his version of "immigration reform" (i.e., amnesty) is nothing but a bigot with a pathological fear of "change."  Rarely has a President insulted so many of his fellow Americans with such regularity.

Just for the record: Very few Americans oppose all immigration -- rather, they oppose illegal immigration, and the attack on our sovereignty that results from the Obama administration's non-enforcement of the immigration laws on the books.  The issue isn't about "change" or "difference" or bigotry . . . it's about the rule of law.

If the President actually stopped the flow of illegal immigrants into this country -- and contrary to his claims, the metric isn't how many people the government employs to do this, but how well they succeed -- I bet he'd be amazed at how open Americans in both parties would be to solving the remaining immigration issues.
