Will Obama’s Hypocrisy Towards Hispanics Leave Him with Yet More Egg on His Face?

Obama left with egg on his face

President Barrack Obama has a long history of hypocrisy when it comes to Hispanics.  He has made many promises to Hispanics and delivered on none of them.  He continues to dangle the carrot of promises, but so far the promises and left an empty plate of unfulfilled dreams.  But not to worry Hispanics…  According to Obama, he has five more years to get something done for you!  Don’t you feel better now?

In 2007, then Senator Obama said he supported the McCain-Kennedy Immigration Reform Bill which was also supported by then President George W. Bush.  However, the bill failed.  It failed, in some part, do to Obama’s votes for many of the amendments which made the bill unpopular and destined it to failure.  In 2008, Presidential Candidate Obama promised to deliver a pathway to citizenship his first year in office.  This, along with many other of his promises piled up on the list of unfulfilled campaign promises.

When President Obama took office in January of 2009 he was in a position to accomplish virtually anything he wanted.  He had a Democrat controlled House of Representatives ruled by the iron fist of Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  He had a supermajority Senate that was tightly controlled by Majority Leader Harry Reid.  They could pass anything they wanted for nearly two years without a single Republican vote. Despite this position of power, President Obama did not submit one single piece of immigration reform legislation. Not one…

But then, in the waning moments of the Congress in 2010, low and behold a bill was brought forward to provide the children of illegal immigrants a “Dream Act”.  However, this bill was doomed to failure from the beginning because of the Democrats’ anchoring the bill down with abortion on demand amendments and the “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” provisions that ensured that no Republican would vote for the bill.  It was designed by Sen. Reid to fail from the beginning as I wrote in a previous article.

Hispanics left holding the bag as Democrats fail on promises

So, during this period where they could pass anything they wanted (as demonstrated by the cramming down our throats of the ObamaCare legislation) Obama and the Democrats did nothing for Hispanics on immigration reform.  Okay, that is not entirely accurate, they did set a record for splitting up Hispanic families by deporting more illegal immigrants than any president in recent history.  And, according to immigration attorney and fellow TexasGOPVote blogger Linda Vega, the Obama administration deported more US Citizens who were of Hispanic descent than any other president.  Don’t you feel better about Obama now?

How long will Hispanics allow Obama and the Democrats to play them? Will it take them as long to learn as it has other minorities who have been promised much by Democrats over the past fifty years but who are generally worse off today than before?  I certainly hope not.

The Democrat Carrot of Immigration Reform

“I’ve got another five years coming up,” Obama said to a Hispanic radio station yesterday.  Really?  Does he believe Hispanics are too stupid to see what he has promised and failed to deliver in his first two years? Does he really think they won’t realize he could have done whatever he wanted his first year, but chose to ignore their issue?  Does he think Hispanics will ignore the slap in the face to the Catholic church he delivered this month?

What Obama has done in his first term should prove to Hispanics that he and the Democrats do not represent their conservative values. They do not respect the Hispanic people and only seek to keep these issues alive in order to drive a wedge between Hispanics and their true conservative values.  Obama believes his hypocrisy will go un-noticed as he continues to dangle the carrot of promises he has proven he has not intention to deliver.  Obama and the Democrats have lied to Hispanics and will continue to do so as long as they are allowed to get away with unfulfilled dreams.

To quote Congressman Ted Poe,  “… and that’s just the way it is!”

Speaker John Boehner’s Refusal to Cave In to Tax Increases Leaves Obama with Egg on His Face

No Debt Ceiling Solution Leaves Obama with Egg on His Face

Crying like an injured bride, President Obama said today that Speaker Boehner “Left me at the altar yet again.” Mr. Speaker, that is exactly what we want you to do when the Spender-in-Chief asks you to raise job killing taxes. It appears in this case, Mr. Obama wanted to raise taxes on all Americans, including homeowners by eliminating the home mortgage tax deduction.

After a noticeably flustered President Obama finished his whining press conference, Speaker Boehner said, “Dealing with the White House is like dealing with a bowl of Jell-O.” I am certain the Speaker meant no disrespect to Jell-O with this comment.

Boehner said, “I have decided to end discussions with the White House and begin conversations with the leaders of the Senate in an effort to find a way forward.”

After the Democrats (Party of NO) said no today to the Cut, Cap and Balance plan passed by the House this week, I don’t know if those discussions will bear fruit either, but I guess he must keep moving forward.

Democrats had four years where they controlled the Congress and the Senate and could have avoided this debt ceiling obstacle we are quickly approaching. Yet, they failed in the past two years to even introduce a budget.  Now they want to say NO to every Republican proposal on the budget and debt ceiling.

Mr. Speaker, I for one, am proud of you for the stand you are taking for America. This is one bride that deserves to be left at the altar. Stick to your guns and solve this problem.  You can then leave it to the Democrats to once again say no… if they dare.
