The Democrats just got doused with a bitter taste of their own medicine; their leader just chucked them on the back burner over the immigration bill. What’s that he said on Air force 1 about the immigration bill something about lawmakers may not have an appetite to go forward with an immigration law.
Now Reid and Pelosi are sort of between a rock and a hard place, because their gallant leader just sort dropped the ball into their laps. Possibly Obama’s strategy here is the same ole, same ole he always employs when his agenda is different than the American public. Remember, Obama isn’t one to be held accountable for anything; he’s always got the gophers or middle people to blame.
But Pelosi just did a one up on the President letting the news media know that this immigration bill needed his leadership and she obviously isn’t about to jump into the political claws of immigration by herself at this time.
So, the Latinos are once again not so gently placed on the back burner – Obama promised them that he would work on the immigration reform his first year in office, but that didn’t happen and now in 2010 he’s weaseling out of his promises to our Latino friends once again. One must wonder how they’re starting to feel about his leadership.
Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), the House Democratic Caucus vice chairman, has let Mr. Obama know that once again he’s broken his promises to the Latino’s and this is creating an environment of mistrust and discomfort for his people.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) diligently worked on immigration reform together and they Obama ditched them too! Obama’s big gush for 2009 and early 2010 was the “healthcare reform,” and he’s shown a real disinterest in immigration reform, budgeting, transparency in government, lower taxes and jobs.
Hopefully the Latino population realizes that the majority of us want to work with them and find a satisfactory resolution for the illegal alien problem; the problem belongs to all of us as American citizens.
All Americans must accept the fact that Obama has straddled the fence once again; he’s in a campaign mode and everything he says or does will be geared towards the upcoming elections in November. He’s trying to gather the troops that elected him President and daily we’ll be immersed in false promises and raving reviews about his accomplishments.
For me, he will remain the President of Blame who has allowed a corrupt administration to bring our Nation to its knees – a man is only as good as his word and we all know Obama’s word doesn’t count for anything!
May God Bless Our Nation
