"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Obama asks Latinos to 'punish our enemies'

Mr. Obama is NEVER going to keep his promise on immigration because there will be NO amnesty for illegals. If I was black, I would be thoroughly disgusted that Obama is comparing illegals to the black civil rights movement. Blacks were here legally. We are talking about Latinos who are in this Country 'illegally' which means they don't belong in this Country.

Republicans have always supported LEGAL immigration but to reward anyone for breaking the law is flat out wrong. Now Obama wants the people of Latino descent to 'punish' our enemies (Republicans) for not granting amnesty and passing comprehensive immigration reform? First of all Obama misses the boat that a lot of Latinos don't appreciate the people here illegally either. The illegals are supported by big Democrat donor groups like La Raza who are pretty radical as they see dollar signs as lawyers. Who does he want to punish their 'enemies' (Republicans)? Illegals who shouldn't be voting? Is that who he is is wanting to get out and vote? Latinos who are not American citizens? How much voter fraud is there in the Latino community?

This is one of the most disgusting displays of partisan politics out of a President that we can remember. He is demanding Republicans bow to him and his agenda, but calls them the enemy? Obama can take his rhetoric and shove it. November 2012 cannot come soon enough to get this man out of office once and for all.

Obama Vows to Push Immigration Changes

In the final week leading up to the midterm elections, President Barack Obama is encouraging Hispanic voters to turn their frustration over stalled immigration reform against Republicans on Election Day.

Hispanics make up a crucial voting bloc in several battleground states and Democrats are hoping to pick up voters turned off by anti-immigrant discourse.

In a radio interview that aired on Univision on Monday, Mr. Obama sought to assure Hispanics that he would push an immigration overhaul after the midterm elections, even though he has not been able to attract Republican support.

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s going to be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.”

Referring specifically to Republicans such as Senator John McCain, who formerly supported an overhual but now are stressing border security and supporting strict immigration laws like Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration measure, Mr. Obama said, “Those aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.”

In a pitch for Senator Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, who locked in a dead heat with his Republican opponent, Sharron Angle, Mr. Obama warned voters that Ms. Angle “is completely opposed to comprehensive immigration reform.” He also denounced an ad encouraging Nevada’s Latinos to stay home on Election Day as “cynical.”

Democrats have put forth a number of proposals aimed at overhauling the nation’s immigration laws. But talks floundered after Senator Lindsey Graham, the lone Republican who was working with them on the overhaul, walked away during a dispute over energy policy.

The Justice Department successfully sued Arizona over its immigration law, arguing that it interfered with the federal government’s role in enforcing immigration laws. Arizona has appealed a stay imposed by a federal judge.

Comparing the immigration fight to African Americans’ decades-long struggle to gain civil rights, Mr. Obama said, “instead of us giving up, we just have to keep working until it gets done.”

“I’m going to keep my promise on immigration reform,” Mr. Obama said.
