Squawk of the Day - Feb. 12, 2012

"Lets be honest. Everybody knows that Republicans have ignored illegal immigration because it provided cheap labor for their friends. Obama has put more boots on the ground to fix the problem than Reagan and both Bush presidents combined."

For more squawks, pick up a copy of today's Albany Herald.

Why did you start the squawk with "Lets be honest", and then spew that garbage? Obama has done such a poor job at stemming immigration that states took their own action. Obama's "boots on the ground" are his DOJ lawyers, stopping the states from defending themselves. He has stopped: Sheriff Aripaio's department from arresting them; Arizona's new law which allowed LEOs to question them about their status; and through Operation Fast & Furious, released thousands of guns to Mexican drug organizations (one of which resulted in the death of a US border agent). So "Lets be honest". Obama has done a poor job on Immigration. Although I will concede that it is not as bad as his fumbling of the economy.

THE ONLY "BOOTS" OBAMA HAS PUT ON THE GROUND ARE THE ONES LOOKING FOR A JOB.

Both of you need to get your facts straight.......

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency expects to deport about 400,000 people this fiscal year, nearly 10 percent above the Bush administration's 2008 total and 25 percent more than were deported in 2007. The pace of company audits has roughly quadrupled since President George W. Bush's final year in office.

What they've done is added people to escort the illegals through the border states. "Future Democrat Votes" is how Obama and the Dems see them.

Coach, you must be on a few of the Goverment programs to be able to make that statement. Obama's give away programs are the modern day $5 bottle of whisky from the old days where politicians would send out there cronys to give out bottles of whisky for a vote. Modern day food stamps, housing assistance programs, etc. represent the old $5 bottle of whisky. The more of the masses that Obama can get on the programs and they have grown by millions since he took office is just a way to guarantee a vote. Why would a person that gets a free check and does not work vote against him??

Even at trying to be insulting you win another "Here's Your Sign" One day you should look at the facts and not listen to the voices in your head. ......FACT The characteristics of Taurus the Bull are solidity, practicality, extreme determination and strength of will - no one will ever drive them, but they will willingly and loyally follow a leader they trust. They are stable, balanced, conservative good, law-abiding citizens and lovers of peace, possessing all the best qualities of the middle-class...

At about 14% of total population, even if he had received every vote from every black person in America, he would not have been elected. The reason Obama was elected president was because George W. Bush was the worst president since Andrew Johnson. Maybe ever.

1

Sister_Ruby 2 years, 6 months ago

Yes He (Obama - The Anointed One) fooled a lot of folks last time. I don't expect it will work this time because all He's got left is Class Warfare and Attacks on Religions. Actions speak louder than Words. His ineffective actions and unfulfilled promises, especially regarding ethics, transparency, and to be a Uniter....well the majority of voters that Hoped for Change last time now know the disappointing Truth. But thankfully "The Truth Will Set You Free!" God Said It!

NOW WE'RE BEING HONEST!

George W. Bush was the worst President in the history of the world.....not just the USA....Obama is a breath of fresh air. Bush screwed up this country so bad until Obama and the next President will not be able to fix it ever again. Obama cant get anything done with a Republican Congress or the "party of no"...they are stupid...But at least Obama made the world a much safer place with the removal of many top terrorists and Leaders such Libya's former President. He created a "jobs bill" that was rejected by the Republican Congress.....(that was stupid). Everything he tries get rejected by the stupid Repubs who have caused this country enough problems. Congress now has an approval rating of 10%...the lowest in the history of this country. That is a Republican Congress.....The worst ever!!!

0

Sister_Ruby 2 years, 6 months ago

I like how you say "jobs bill" with quote marks. It helps emphasize the point that it was really another sham, a massive giveaway to Unions, for so-called jobs that might last a few months (at least until November 2012), to do things that the country doesn't really NEED done, like....say.....putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into SOLYNDRA which still failed, or an airport terminal that could stand a little paint and fix-up but no let's just re-do the whole shootin' match because....look, here's a few hundred thousand dollars that fell from the sky and we gotta spend it!!

facts are facts....this Republican Congress is your problem....not Obama! But despite the "Party of No"....here are just a few of his many accomplishments of our Commander and Chief: 1. Ordered all federal agencies to undertake a study and make recommendations for ways to cut spending 2.

Families of fallen soldiers have expenses covered to be on hand when the body arrives at Dover AFB 6 Ended media blackout on war casualties; reporting full information 7.

Republican President - George W. Bush "screw ups" as "Screw Up in Chief" (Not enough room in this blog to list all of his screw-ups, limited space is allowed)

1)Bullying the intelligence community into giving him the justification to start a war in Iraq over non-existent WMDs.

2)Ramming through a massive new, unfunded Medicare drug benefit when the system was already broke.

3)Rushing to enact the hugely expensive Sarbanes-Oxley Act in reaction to the Enron scandal even though there was no evidence that it would have prevented it from happening.

4)The total failure to deal with Katrina.

5) Nominating the totally unqualified Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court and appointing other nincompoops to high level positions solely on the basis of slavish loyalty.

6) Not vetoing anything until two years into his second term.

7) Thinking that tax rebates and tax credits stimulate growth and failing to make any of his tax cuts permanent.

Stay Tuned...I got more "screw ups" for you silly mis-informed repubs.......

coachjohnson42 2 years, 6 months ago

Republican - George W. Bush was responsible for:

1)Destroying the Doha round of trade negotiations by imposing steel tariffs and enacting a massive new agricultural subsidy program at its outset. (The whole point of Doha was to reduce agricultural subsidies.)

2) Failing to name a new vice president in 2004 who would have been a viable Republican candidate for president in 2008.

3) Thinking that cooperating with Ted Kennedy on the No Child Left Behind Act was a good idea and believing in “compassionate conservatism.” (Made ordinary conservatism look uncompassionate.)

4) Signing McCain-Feingold after promising to veto it during the 2000 election.

5) Neutering the Treasury secretary and failing to push for tougher oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, thus contributing to the housing crash and economic crisis we have experienced for going on three years with no end in sight.

The list goes on and on.......Republican George W. Bush was the WORST EVER!!!

So keep slapping the “Bull” and you will keep getting the “Horns” so once again ................................. “Here’s YOUR Sign”

Unfortunately CJ42 is correct in this respect: It's unfortunate that Bush agreed to all those things in an effort to compromise with a DEMOCRAT congress. Unfortunately, he found out, like all us Conservatives did, that you cannot compromise with THE DEVIL. Too bad for us. DEVIL wins..........every time. And his minions celebrate, right Coach?

Coach, lighten up on the coffee! You threw a lot of stuff out there, much of it in error, some of it absolutely true, a lot of it meritorious in your view not in another person’s view.

I have a problem with , not only President Obama's policies, but how he goes about trying to achieve them. Name calling, bullying, deceit, and defiance of the constitution. This could not be happening without a compliant, if not outright supportive news media. If we survive as a true democracy, this President’s term will be viewed as a disaster.

Coach, Just a couple of responses to your “facts”: 1.The White House and federal government are respecting the Freedom of Information Act 2.Instructed all federal agencies to promote openness and transparency as much as possible

Exerpt: The Associated Press looked at the administration’s commitment to transparency in 2010 and concluded Obama was using FOIA exemptions to withhold information from requesters more than Bush did in his final year, despite receiving fewer overall requests. And one of the most frequently used exemptions was one Obama explicitly told the agencies not to use: the “deliberative process” exemption, which allows the government to withhold documents dealing with its decision making process. In Obama’s first year in office, the use of the exemption skyrocketed from 47,395 times in 2008 to 70,779 times in 2009. The AP is not exactly a conservative organization! For more go to: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/01/under-obama-administration-freedom-information-act-still-shackles

3.Limits on lobbyist’s access to the White HouseEmphasis

Quote from Politico Jan. 2009, definitely not a conservative rag: Strong“So far, though, at least a dozen former lobbyists have found top jobs in his administration, according to an analysis done by Republican sources and corroborated by Politico.”

For another torpedo to your midsection, check this out. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/78509-after-obama-rips-k-street-administration-invites-lobbyists-to-private-briefings

How much footwork would you like me to do so you can overcome the propaganda that has been so successful in forming your opinion of this administration?
