  • POTUS consorting with Illegals to show his contempt for the rule of law

    I would love to see Obama's defenders defend this... feel free, of course, to pitch any obligatory hissy fits about the source of the story, but please, eventually, get to the actual topic....

    Source: CNSNews.com

    - President Barack Obama told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Thursday night he was accompanied to the convention center by two illegal aliens, whom he called "dreamers."

    "I want to give a special thanks to two young men who rode over with me from the White House tonight," Obama said. "Luis and Victor are CHCI (Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute) interns and fellows. They are also dreamers, living and working in the country they call home, and making it a better place for all of us.

    I'm only surprised Holder was not along for the ride.

    Not just dreamers. DREAMers-- as in, people who would be covered under the DREAM Act. The quote from the article doesn't make that clear.
    Don't call it a comeback. It's a riposte.

      I thought that was patently obvious. Yes, he's associating with illegal aliens to whom he wants to give citizenship.

        Legal residency, anyway.

          So, if you break into my garage and sweep the floor, I have to adopt you, eh?

            I'll not dignify that with a response.

            It's not like they'd be more at home in any country other than the one in which they were raised. They want to be American. They know what it means to be American. The only thing standing in their way is a particular and stubborn variety of irrational dedication to the letter of the law that only serves to undermine the rule of law in the long run.

              There's nothing irrational about disincentivizing criminals. Maybe we can reach a compromise where one young liberal is traded for one DREAMer? The Mexican can stay and the liberal is stripped of citizenship, thrown out of the country and never allowed back in.

                Yeah, why obey laws? They just get in the way of people doing whatever they want to do.

                  DREAMers are people who were brought to this country as young children. They didn't "choose" to illegally cross the border. They grew up and were raised in America, effectively the only land they've ever truly known. A better analogy would be someone who was brought into Cow Poke's garage as a kid, lived in the garage all his life, came to love the garage and developed a desire to be a member of the garage. Of course, keeping a kid in Cow Poke's garage for all those years wouldn't exactly be good parenting, but you get the point.

                    You kinda sorta left out the word "illegally" in that sentence.

                    They didn't "choose" to illegally cross the border.
                    No, their parents or guardians did.

                    Again, you forgot the word "illegally".... if they were brought into my garage ILLEGALLY, their parents or guardian would have been arrested, and the children turned over to Children's Services.

                      The criminals I was referring to was their parents. I agree that the kids themselves are in a bad situation but their well being should not be the primary concern.

                          Baptists aren't allowed to consort - it leads to dancing.

                            People should be concerned with the well being of children of criminals anyway. However, I am now unable to suggest a way that I feel is good to take care of those kids.

                              I was referring to your analogy, which is so unworthy of someone like you that I'm going to pretend you never even posted it.

                              Yeah, why obey laws? They just get in the way of people doing whatever they want to do.
                              I know you can do better than this.
