Obama has been making “gutsy calls” all over the place!
In full campaign mode, he’s been deploying his administrative agencies to do favors for his big contributors, to the detriment of ordinary Americans.
Last week, Obama made the gutsy call to threaten public schools that are asking students for proof of residency. The memorandum warned school districts that it’s illegal to ask students for proof of citizenship or legal residency status.
Obama’s wealthy donors need illegals so they can get cheap nannies, cooks and pool boys.
On the other hand, illegals being paid off the books are not helping Americans find jobs.
According to a May 4, 2011, report from the (liberal) Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, 76 percent of “hard-pressed Democrats” — defined as “religious, financially struggling” — agree with the statement: “Immigrants today … are a burden on our country because they take our jobs, housing and health care.”
As Kausfiles observes, maybe financially struggling Democrats believe immigrants “take our jobs” because, in fact, they do.
Whose side is Obama on?
Forget the grand arguments about whether illegals are hard workers and are a net plus to the beautiful American mosaic. We have skyrocketing unemployment. Our citizens are in distress. Now is not the time to be putting another anvil around the American worker’s neck.
Also last week, an immigration judge made the gutsy call to disregard the federal Defense of Marriage Act — passed overwhelmingly by Congress and signed into law by President Clinton — and allow an illegal alien to stay in this country based on his “marriage” to another man. He based his ruling on the gutsy decision of Obama’s attorney general to challenge the ordered deportation of another illegal alien just days earlier, citing the alien’s gay marriage to an American.
By coincidence, Obama has been getting huge campaign donations from gay activist groups. And his wealthy donors also need cheap interior decorators.
How many illegal servants do Obama’s friends need? Another million? How about 10 million? Then will Obama start enforcing immigration laws? And isn’t it his job to enforce the law, irrespective of whether his campaign contributors need slave labor?
Then Obama made the gutsy decision to sue Arizona to block a state law requiring secret ballots for union elections.
Who’s benefiting here — and who’s being harmed? The union bosses will be happy, but American workers will now be subjected to union thuggery coercing them to vote for the unions.
Labor unions did such wonderful things for Detroit’s economy that the city recently recorded its lowest population since the 1910 census, and the federal government has had to bail out two of the city’s major employers, General Motors and Chrysler.
Currently, Detroit boasts a 47 percent adult illiteracy rate, which is fantastic news for Democrats. (Ironically, I read that in the Detroit News.)
Two weeks ago, Obama’s National Labor Relations Board made the gutsy call to file a complaint against Boeing for attempting to build a new airplane production plant in South Carolina — a right-to-work state — and demanding that the plant be opened in Washington state — a dying Democratic pro-union state.
Suing Boeing for building a plant in South Carolina will certainly help Obama raise lots of campaign money from labor unions. Unfortunately, more Americans workers will be unemployed when Boeing and other companies give up on building plants in America and move yet more of their operations offshore.
But the Obama administration is gutsily punishing right-to-work states — even states that merely require secret ballots in order to obviate coercion by union thugs.
What are Americans supposed to do to earn money? Obama doesn’t care: Ordinary Americans are irrelevant to the Democrats’ electoral ambitions — they exist only to justify the hiring of more government workers.
The Democrats have now officially abandoned working-class Americans.
Obama is doing what’s in his and his party’s self-interest, rather than concerning himself with the mass of American citizens. He is using his executive authority to reward gays, illegal aliens, do-nothing government employees, far-left union bosses, abortion industry executives and global warming kooks.
Are you on that list of Obama’s friends?
Democrats blithely act as if big labor, pro-illegal-immigration, pro-government union policies combined with massive government red tape and huge socialist programs will have no effect on jobs.
They incessantly repeat “gutsy call” for “you’d have to have been brain-dead not to make the call to kill bin Laden,” hoping the Democratic Party will suddenly seem macho.
Then, after a few weeks of robotically chanting “gutsy call,” they can get back to their true passion — destroying jobs — at which point they will robotically chant Bush’s name to explain why millions of Americans have lost their jobs under Obama.
