I love when reading comments or articles about Obama when the author of those comments and articles addresses him as Barack Hussein Obama. It make is so easy to dismiss them right out of the chute.
A group of undocumented immigrants has occupied President Barack Obama's campaign office in downtown Oakland, refusing to leave until his administration stops deporting students.
"We're going to stay here as long as we can," said Luis Serrano, 24, speaking by cell phone Thursday evening from inside the Telegraph Avenue storefront where he and other students were staging a sit-in....Students took over Obama's Denver campaign headquarters in a similar protest last week, sparking a round of sit-ins now erupting in Los Angeles, Michigan and Ohio.
Activists can occupy all the Obama offices they want to, but the simple fact remains that there is precious little the administration can do, unilaterally, on immigration law, where Congress holds pretty much all the cards.
I wouldn't, either, since the American public believes (and wrongly so) that the President has the power to create jobs when Congress is pulling the purse strings so tightly it's strangling the economy and any hope of job creation.
Had activists followed Obama's advice and focused their efforts more on susceptible Republican senators (do remember that there have bren many Republican advocates for the Dream Act over the years) it is possible that they might have got those five votes.
I would like Obama to "bypass" congress and get the Feds to quit cracking down on pot if the individual states have voted to make it legal. Apparently he has the power to do that too.
Policy change is one thing, actually getting ICE to act differently is another. Regarding Medical Marijuana, Holder said that Obama, his boss, said that it is US policy for the Feds never to raid Medical Marijuana Operations. We know how that worked out.
To decide which laws it will enforce and which it won't? Many liberals, including me, were pretty upset by Bush's signing statements because it was a massive power grab. Actions like this are no less of a power grab. How would you feel is Romney were to deprioritize enforcing labor law violations? Or corporate tax evasion?
I'm not sure why American citizens of Hispanic descent would support amnesty for illegal immigrants, even if they share the same skin color or heritage.
Especially just after the hilarity of the RNC using a stock photo of Asian children at the top of the site for its new Hispanic outreach program.
