Obama will lose Arizona… because of immigration!

February 26, 2012

Immigration is a losing issue for Democrats:

The White House continues to talk about its ability to contest Arizona, but polling data suggest otherwise — and underscores the fact that immigration right now is a losing issue for President Obama and Democrats. A NBC News/Marist poll in the state showed over two times as many voters in Arizona were “more likely” to support a candidate that backed the state’s hardline anti-illegal immigration law as those who would be less likely to do so. While the Hispanic growth in the state is significant, the percentage of those who are registered is relatively low – and there have been few signs of any significant uptick in political participation.

The numbers also provide a cautionary tale to the [Democrat] party’s likely Senate nominee, Richard Carmona, who is an attractive recruit because of his Hispanic heritage, but could lose support from white voters over his opposition to SB 1070. Remember: the law was the driving force behind Gov. Jan Brewer’s political success – she looked like a sure loser after ascending to the post, but ended up winning election comfortably by a 12-point margin. There was a good reason why Janet Napolitano didn’t run for Senate — her involvement in the White House’s lawsuit against the state immigration law would have handicapped her campaign from the start.

    Pretty sad when Republicans have to convince themselves that Obama wlll not win a hard red state like AZ.

    Can we just save the taxpayers some money, not have Presidential election in 2012 and give Obama his 2nd term?

    Speaking as an Arizonan and a supporter of SB 1070, let me say this; there is no chance, none, that AZ would go blue in a close election, even if this issue is taken off the table. If Arizona is in play, it’s over for the R’s.

    This dynamic is widely seen here as one of Obama’s reasons for suing Arizona; he’d have never done it to a state he carried.

    I do however agree that immigration is a losing issue for the D’s, just like it has proven to be for more than a few R’s; Perry’s fall began with three words: “You don’t have a heart”.

    Yeah, Obama has never had a shot to win Arizona in the general, and even if he did, it wouldn’t matter anyway, as he’d be winning a landslide in the process.

    The only question is, can Willard win the primary tomorrow by the +15 points he SHOULD.

    I smell a Willard loss in Michigan tomorrow, and that coupled with a less than 10 point win in Arizona likely spells the end of this crapweasel’s candidacy.

    And Santorum will be claiming “victory” here in Michigan no matter what happens, I suspect. Even if he loses the popular vote by a smidge, he’ll likely play to a draw, or even win the proportional delegate battle here. And in the face of the incinerating blowtorch of negativity Willard has been laying down here, that would qualify as a victory. Super Tuesday and the South and the Heartland are not WIllard friendly territory, no matter the size of his Goldman Sachs funded blowtorch.

    “I smell a Willard loss in Michigan tomorrow”

    So do I. Mittens doesn’t have enough money and attacks to sway people like he did early on. Mitt’s stench is getting stronger by the day and even the most thick headed Rinos are starting to realize what a complete LOSER they picked

    The American people have never censured the majority of LEGAL IMMIGRANTS? The People are not discriminating against any race, creed, color or nationality; they are in opposition to unlawful foreign nationals. The Liberal Vendetta has surpassed the rationality of blaming the Constitutionalists. Far from it; we need engineers, scientists and highly skilled professional in computer technology. What is not wanted is unfettered poverty that seems we are getting more of every day? The top classes of potential immigrants already have been sponsored by companies waiting for them, and its ascertained they are unlikely to be paying a visit to the welfare offices? Guest Workers for the farming industry should be well regulated and only on a temporary basis, with no path to citizenship. Anybody caught illegally in this nation, must face a felony charge. Annually the cost for this paramount immigration issue has climbed to a hundred billion and still rising.

    The United States is at odds over illegal immigration. On the right side crave that tens of millions should be deported yesterday, as they have driven down wages and consume federal and state assistance services, while the majority evade taxes and at the same time wiring some $46 billion to support families in other countries. On the opposite side of the coin, as with the Liberals and Democrats who identify illegal aliens as future voters and model themselves as open border zealots that want no immigration enforcement whatsoever The Liberal Progressives want this country to forfeit its right, to define itself as a nation of laws and thus would commit financial suicide. The left does not care that the 20 to 30 million illegal immigrants and migrants do not pay enough taxes, to cover the overload of welfare and public services that they use.

    It’s not adequate to say they pay gas, food, household goods and other sales tax. Because it no way covers the Heritage Foundation and American Federation Immigration reform report of $113 Billion dollars a year, going in free health, schooling for children and welfare and subsidiary cash payments, that are absorbed every year. A further estimate is that over 500.000 and use some means to illegally enter America, either by foreign flights or slipping past the undermanned border agents. Not all Presidential candidates have committed to building the real double parallel fences at the Southwest border. A promise of enforcing the fence has only come from the mouths of Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Ron Paul has remained mainly negative on the subject of border control.

    President Obama has expressed to the Democratic majority, that in the next five years following his inauguration, that he will pass a nation comprehensive immigration reform, containing a Dream Act legislation, unfettered chain migration for immediate family members and millions of agricultural jobs, that taxpayers will be forced to pay. Robert Rectors analysts at the Heritage Foundation have spoken in another report, that to complete this tyranny of action cost to taxpayers of $2.4 Trillion dollars to complete, adding even incendiary spending of Congress. Our only hope of getting out of this mess should be to unseat all pro-illegal immigrant incumbents, at all levels of government. Any elected official who says illegal aliens should have drivers licenses (Police chief Beck in California.) The Mayor of New Haven DeStefano, who issued Identity cards to foreigners, Governor Jerry Brown of California insisting there should be a path to citizenship, while dollars are rolled out for the millions of nationals their and citizens are forgotten and the hundreds of Governors, Mayors, Judges, Police and public officials in councils who run cities and towns have to be elected out of office. Strong mind Governors as Arizona’s Governors Jan Brewer, and other who are on the right side of the fence, should be reelected and moderate Democrats, should also join this financial battle.

    The cost for assimilating illegal aliens on top of the flood of legal immigrants is unprecedented. These are further expenses we don’t need on the rising federal deficit in paying for two wars and Obama’s cronyism. The man has already bypassed the requirements of the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli Immigration Act, and through presidential orders allowed backdoor amnesties for unlawful people. Many are now walking on our streets, thinking that after the 2012 election they will be granted a path to citizenship. You have already the years of abuse of criminals advancing there heinous occupations, leaving innocent victims blood in home invasion robberies, the murders and in the endless spotlight the drunken driving madness. Ice has been intimidated by radical organizations, who belief illegal aliens should have the same rights as citizens. Their determination to overturn the “Rule of Law” that has governed us, since the founding fathers first penned their signature on the U.S. Constitution. Both political parties are guilty of eroding this precious document. All are guilty of giving lip service to the oath of allegiance and abusing their positions.

    Those of us that see this unapologetic corrosion in Washington can either turn a blind eye or find a place for themselves in the rising membership of the TEA PARTY. These tens of millions of ordinary folk spread out in thousands of chapters throughout America have realized that under the roots of either Democrats, Liberals or Republicans the Congress will follow the same old route as before. They will keep on printing money and the spending will continue. By overhauling the Senate and more of the House of Representative seats with Tea Party leadership, the same old favoritism will end. There will be a revolution in the Congress, as never seen before. Laws on Immigration will be enforced. Until green Power is further advanced, we will drill for oil, of which we have an ample supply to last a hundred years. Lou Dobbs tonight had a very excellent idea that all supplies of oil found on federal land, placing the funds appropriated by the government to end up who knows where, and placed in the people’s bank; fossil fuels should not be sold to foreign countries, when it belongs to all Americans.

    The tea Party will approve our pipeline from Canada, to reduce the need for foreign supplies. Federal election regulations will be amended, so prove of who you really are by possessing a voter ID. This will disrupt non citizens from voting in future election cycles, that Democrats have specifically overlooked. This Tuesday Arizona will be put to the test with an election, thus millions of illegal aliens settled there are likely to scorn the law, if official picture ID is not evident for voting. Our freedoms have been jeopardized, unless we have a political party we can depend on, as our country is straining towards the wrong direction in our future. We have seen this with the harassment of Border States of Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Utah, Indiana, South Carolina and newly joined state of Mississippi under considerable pressure from unfunded mandates from Washington.

    All 50 States have been trying desperately to save their legal population into paying for illegal aliens, but have been received an intense bombardment for decades, initiated by religion, unions and radical minority groups. This will not happen under TEA PARTY legislation and in fact they will pass bills, as the mandatory E-Verify “THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT” (H.R.2885) Placing federal enforcement obstacles to halt illegal workers being hired, the “BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP ACT” (H.R.140) to right a wrong by amendment to a law that says no child gains instant citizenship if both parent owes allegiance to a foreign country. Soon as (H.R.2885) is enacted self-deportation or ATTRITION THROUGH ENFORCEMENT will commence as with jobs unavailable, they will leave. This has been a huge mockery of our laws, as 300 thousand females annually will intentionally cross our border or enters as a tourist from another country, to have her baby here free of charge and then apply for a green card. If you are not aware of “The Legal Workforce Act” that directly affects millions of citizens-residents jobs or the “Birthright Citizenship Act” that will contain billions of dollars in your revenue, then Google NUMBERSUSA for much in depth description and then report this fiasco to your prominent federal or state politician and demand they pass these laws. GET RID OF ALL THESE POLITICAL IDIOTS BEFORE THEY GIVE YOUR COUNTRY AWAY.

    Our “Scary” President

    Less than four months into the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, Lou Pritchett, a former vice president of Procter and Gamble, posted an open letter to Obama on his blog which began, “Dear President Obama: You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.”

    The original missive had been sent by the legendary corporate legend, noted public speaker, author, and teacher to the New York Times which chose not to print it although less distinguished publications did. It was subsequently accorded the seal of accuracy by leftist-leaning Snopes.com and only now has gone viral.

    In retrospect, it’s understandable why the Times, a principal MSM Obama lackey, wanted no part of Pritchett’s letter but Obamians predictably came out in force to condemn Pritchett for his stupidity, ignorance, inaccuracies, and venom for daring to express his viewpoints on their Anointed One.

    The letter reflects the author’s early and insightful realization that America was in serious trouble with our new leader and commander-in-chief.

    Just months into Obama’s tenure, Pritchett noted Obama was unfit for office by virtue of his murky background, lack of experience and qualifications, radical past associations, arrogant sense of omnipotence and omniscience, his demonization of all opponents, and his extreme spending and health care plans which have since come to fruition.

    In what is easily the scariest feature of Pritchett’s alarm was citing Obama’s mainstream media for its failure to vet candidate Obama as it had always done with previous presidential hopefuls and, since his election, has given him a free ride, never questioning his motives, never investigating his claims, never doubting his sincerity.

    The remainder of Lou Pritchett’s letter follows: (Read more at http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=15150.)
