There is a big reason Obama won the election. It's not because of what he's done. It's not for how he plans to help everyday Americans.

It's because illegals want amnesty. That is what tipped the scales in his favor. Romney was focused on citizens and the economy. Not good enough. Even though that would help most Americans.

Obama got re-elected because he promised to kiss the asses of the illegal population. This is seriously fucked up.


Leaders of immigrant rights and Latino groups told reporters in a conference call on Wednesday that Obama owes his second term to Latino voters, and should repay them by passing comprehensive immigration reform. Obama promised to pass a law legalizing many of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the country while he campaigned four years ago, and he's been chastised by Latino leaders for breaking his promise.

He'll deliver. This was his strategy going in. Target the small groups. He knew his record was appalling.

I think Obamas Dream Act helped him, and Romneys "Self Deportation" helped sink him. However it's also fair to note that Romney lost every demographic except white Christian men, so it's not "just" the Hispanics that tipped the scale.

Obama now owes lots of folks - including women. That's how it works...

Reform is long overdue. What are the Republicans going to do, turn themselves into a permanent minority party?

no, it isn't. that didn't stop mr reagan, iirc.

it's a tough problem and there are no easy answers, but every latino isn't an illegal and every illegal isn't a latino.

alienating large blocs of voters generally isn't seen as the road to success in electoral politics.

NY 26th FINALLY DEM!
Maybe hating minorities and not facing reality is a bad idea. Pass the Schumer/Lindsay Graham Bill and end this Pub mess. We need a good work/SS ID card in conjunction with O-care and act like adults...

How about this demographic for voters?

EVERYBODY GETS TREATED EXACTLY THE SAME?

Or is that considered "unfair" by some dumbass "demographic"?

What are we teaching people in this country then that expecting people to obey the law alienates citizens? This society has worked and been successful because most, not all, but most people voluntarily obey the laws that are duly passed by those we send to Washington to represent us. Where do we end as a society when that voluntary compliance ends. Why should one man obey the law while another breaks it with impunity?

That's the one I've always held up. Treat everyone the same regardless of color, race, ethnicity, etc... Pander to and exploit no one.
