    SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT: THE GOP IS FINE WITH OBAMA STANCE ON IMMIGRATION. THEY JUST DON"T LIKE THAT HE GOT CREDIT FOR IT. HOW SURPRISING...

    Republicans refine immigration message after Obama's scoop - CNN.com

    So let's see. They wouldn't let the Dream Act even GET to a vote for two years. Now they claim they're fine with the substance of the move by Obama, they're just pissed because he intereferred with their ability to "work together in a bi-partisan manner". WTF??? As if EITHER party has done squat on a bi-partisan level for years!!! LOL!!

    Seriously, the only two types of politicians I can't stand are Republicans and Democrats...

    Oh please, both the dems and the reps want to reward illegals, either because they can get cheaper workers, or votes. They have both sold out the American people.

    The GOP are a bunch of cry-baby jackasses. They suddenly like it because the american people do as well.

    As I was saying yesterday, and I have to say I can't remember who I was hearing it from,

    the GOP thought they were going to co-opt this issue and screw Obama by having Rubio put out what was essentially the Obama plan as a GOP plan,

    and Romney was going to sign onto it. Unfortunately Obama beat them to the punch.

    Think that is neither fortunate nor unfortunate when it comes to my stance... and whether it is REP or DEM or IND or whatever.. if they support any of this and keep moving away from enforcing immigration law strictly, I don't support them

    Wrong.

    That is not Obama's stance on immigration.

    We are fine with the sons and daughters of illegals being here, it's not their fault.

    WE just don't like Obama bypassing the Congress like some two-bit tyrant.

    Why the Fuck did he do this at any point during the last 3.5 years eh? Because it's just an election year stunt.

    REALLY? I think someone forgot to tell Mitt Romney when he was catering to the Far Right during the primaries....
