Of course, I'm referring to Obama's affinity for amnesty for illegal aliens. According to California columnist Joe Guzzardi, "The actual death-knell statement made by Obama's operatives included comments to the effect that in order to 'avoid political distractions' and instead to 'focus on reversing the economic slide,' the president would have to 'delay' some of the 'promises' he made during his campaign." ("Economy May Delay Work on Obama's Campaign Pledges." New York Times, January 10, 2009).
Indeed, radical alienist Janet Murguia of the treasonous organization National Council of La Raza ("la raza" means "the race" in Spanish and the group advocates a Mexico takeover of the southwest United States) is oh so disappointed in the president. She said, "President-elect Obama has made clear a campaign commitment to address this issue in his first year, and we know he takes that very seriously. And we plan to hold him accountable."
Uh-oh. Looks like an incestuous rumble is about to take place on the far left. Her anger may be justified and came on the heels of Obama saying on ABC's "This Week," "I want to be realistic here. Not everything that we talked about during the campaign are we going to be able to do on the pace we had hoped."
While my side is laughing at leftists being annoyed at Obama, his side is in fits over this. I recall the anger on the right when Bush tried to appoint the Sandra O'Connor clone Harriet Myers to fill the O'Connor vacancy on the Supreme Court. The right wouldn't let him get away with breaking his campaign promise to appoint justices like Scalia and Thomas and was able to get Myers to withdraw. Instead we got the great Sam Alito.
Will the left be able to hold Obama to his promise to give the country away to third world illegal aliens? Let's hope not. Stick to your guns, Mr. President. Stay "preoccupied." Please.
The irony in all this is that Bush and McCain are just as bad as Obama on this issue. Both are fanatical immigration enthusiasts ("enthusiasm" as defined by Peter Brimelow as an irrational fanaticism -- looking at the emotional side of an issue instead of its pragmatic side). Obama instead of McCain is just slightly more of the same -- a little more socialism, a little more selling out the country to the multiculturalists.
