Obama Infantilizes Voters

Rubio sees their strengths:

Their convictions are sincere, the product of each man’s upbringing and early life experience. Mr. Obama’s formative years spent as a community organizer inspired him to consider the poor or unemployed as abused by businesses that shuttered plants or raised rents – victims of an indifferent society. His decision to “organize black folks” as he explains in “Dreams from My Father,” was fed by a need to find his place in the civil rights movement, to prove himself “not alone in my particular struggles.”

Those struggles include uneasiness with being black. When in Kenya, he finally experiences the “freedom that comes from not feeling watched…here the world was black, and so you…could discover all those things that were unique to your life without living a lie or committing betrayal.” His views of the United States and of Europe are tinged by antipathy to white colonialism. During his visit to Kenya he decides the white tourists are “an encroachment”; he resents that they exhibit “a confidence reserved for those born into imperial cultures.” Obama carries baggage.

Rubio grew up listening to his polio-stricken grandfather extol the virtues and values of the United States. Rubio recalls that like so many proud immigrants, the old man impressed upon his grandson that “there was no limit to how far I could go, because I was an American.” While Obama’s upbringing causes him to focus on America’s “darker periods,” Rubio’s relationship with his native land is celebratory. Early in his presidency, Mr. Obama declines to proclaim America’s exceptionalism while Rubio shouts it from the rooftops.

Not to mention Obama being raised by communists.

    Obama may infantalize voters; but since he’s our Daddy (according to Chris Rock), we can rest assured we’ll be taken care of.

    I used to think very highly of Rubio.

    Now, I no longer do, thanks to his incessant pushing regarding illegal aliens.

    Like I said about the GOP the last time they tried to pass “reform” (which was nothing more than a sellout driven by stupidity) NOT ONE DAMN DIME! I will no longer donate to them (and I sure didn’t in that cycle) and I talked a lot of people out of doing so as well (it’s not hard to talk people out of giving away money).

    What Rubio is trying to saddle us with is a very large number of poor people, and guess who gets to pay for all the social services they’ll use? Taxpayers.

    So, these criminal invaders come in, get a free pass, and as an added bonus, we taxpayers are supposed to pay for them too?

    To hell with them all. The politicians as well.

    I also encourage everyone to cheat on their taxes. After all, crime is nothing a little amnesty won’t fix, right? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, and if the invaders don’t have to obey the law why should we?

    For a real immigration policy, why not use e-verify? Make it mandatory, and dry up most of the jobs the illegals come here for; that would take away the incentive, and thus the problem.

    Exit question: it the GOP truly mind-numbingly stupid enough to think that selling out on this issue will help them with hispanic voters? It won’t.

    Here’s a hint for the GOP: you did better amongst Hispanics than you did amongst Asians by about two points. This is not a new trend, and Asians don’t have illegal aliens as a core issue. So, GOP, instead of pandering to criminals, it would behoove you to look at why you did so poorly amongst Asians. I have no idea what the answer is, but it’s a question that should be asked.

    Sorry for the rant, but Rubio has become a red flag to me. I had high hopes for him, and he’s become one hell of a disappointment.

    And even though I now don’t like Rubio, I’ll say this; the media harping on him taking a drink of water is beyond pathetic, and obscenely unfair to Rubio (and sane people everywhere).

      Jim and Gerrib are no doubt looking at that cartoon, scratching their heads and thinking, “I don’t get it.”
