BURN: Where I Agree With What Obama Said, While Doubting He Does

Today in remarks again slamming a law I doubt he's read, THE ONE deplored Arizona's effort to staunch the flow of illegal immigrants, while calling for a solution that will open the wound further.  He said something with which I agree, but I doubt he meant a word of it.
I want everyone, American and Mexican, to know my administration is taking a very close look at the Arizona law,” he said. “We’re examining any implications, especially for civil rights, because in the United States of America, no law-abiding person, be they an American citizen, a legal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico, should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like.” 
Fine.  Excellent.  Total concurrence.

Of course, the Arizona law is specifically designed to assure every component of that statement.  Every one.   I know, having read it.  I know, since he keeps distorting it, Obama is either ignorant of it, or he's lying.

No LAW ABIDING person needs be concerned.  If one of us is "subject to suspicion", it cannot be "simply because of what we look like".  Not if the law is followed.  Plus, if we become suspect, we can quickly and painlessly dispel the suspicion by providing one of many forms of documentation the law provides, showing we are, indeed, a "law-abiding person".

Of course, as Calderon made clear, migration must be legal.  Unimpeded.  Free.  For all Mexicans into the U.S.  But not for anyone into Mexico! 


  1. The only reasons someone in the US would enter Mexico illegally would be to buy drugs, or they are on the run from the law. Mexicans obviously have another set of motives.

    My guess is Barry knows what's in the bill by now, but needs to demogogue it. Plays good to the base, and 30 million hispanic votes in his column would be pretty sweet. Anything that advances the collective utopia is virtuous, so can not be a lie. He is the one he's been waiting for.

  2. Maybe, but I've been A-FREAKING-MAZED to hear the admissions from the Obami regarding their astounding ignorance of the law.

    Maybe when you're that in the tank for the collective, seeing it on a table is enough.

  3. BTW, first saw the headline on this post and thought at first you made a typo - then the double entendre sinks in. Nicely done. Keep writing dude. Writing is like golf. the more you do it the better you get. Except in my case - on both counts.

  4. A donk wouldn't know "law abiding" if it stepped on their foot.

  5. Certainly a flaw in Obama's pronouncement...
