As a Milblog I don’t often weigh in on matters solely political, but in instances where I have predicted it right, I like to brag to readers (even if I have to go back some four years ago to find my prediction).
I had told my oldest son, Josh, a while back after he predicted a total debacle for the health care bill that it didn’t matter. Obama’s aims are much more nefarious than just a socialization of our health care system. He knows that he doesn’t have the soul of the American people with this scheme, but that is America as it is currently constituted.
Despite steep odds, the White House has discussed prospects for reviving a major overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws, a commitment that President Obama has postponed once already.
Obama took up the issue privately with his staff Monday in a bid to advance a bill through Congress before lawmakers become too distracted by approaching midterm elections.
In the session, Obama and members of his Domestic Policy Council outlined ways to resuscitate the effort in a White House meeting with two senators — Democrat Charles E. Schumer of New York and Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — who have spent months trying to craft a bill.
According to a person familiar with the meeting, the White House may ask Schumer and Graham to at least produce a blueprint that could be turned into legislative language.
The basis of a bill would include a path toward citizenship for the 10.8 million people living in the U.S. illegally.
If this succeeds, 10 – 15 million new voters will be added to the roles, most of them voting democratic. The current objections to socialization of our society and nationalization of our industries won’t matter. It will be an artifact of history, and Obama will have thus ensured that his party remains in power in perpetuity.
One final note. With people like Lindsey Graham in the Senate, Obama doesn’t even need total control over the legislative process. The GOP will apparently help him do it. Maybe the GOP is on a suicide mission for some reason or other?
