It Wasn't A Dig At Fox News, It Was A Dig At You

In writing about Obama's "alligator moat" speech yesterday, I didn't pick up on this comment (video here), which is being reported as a dig at Fox News (emphasis mine):
One CEO has this to say about reform, ‘American ingenuity is a product of the openness and diversity of the society. Immigrants have made America great, as the world leader in business and science, higher education and innovation.’ You know who that leader was? Rupert Murdoch, who owns Fox News, and is an immigrant himself. I don’t know if you’re familiar with Rupert Murdoch’s views, but let’s just say he doesn’t have an Obama sticker on his car. But he agrees with me on this. So there’s a consensus around fixing what’s broken, and now we need Congress to catch up. Now we need to come together around reform that reflects our values as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.
This was not a dig only at Fox News, it was a dig at all of you who make the distinction between legal and illegal immigration.  He might has well just played the audio of his bitter clinger speech:
And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
Opposing illegal immigration, and demanding enforcement of immigration laws is not anti-immigrant, as Obama portrays it.  That's just another in a long line of strawman arguments which has become the primary way Obama makes arguments.

And once again, the focus is in belittling opponents.  Because he just can't help himself:  And it's why giving the go ahead to the bin Laden operation has changed nothing about why Obama needs to be defeated in 2012.

Sunday night on 60 Minutes was just the exception which proves the rule.

  1. Think I now know why Obama will not release any education records.

    Socialism- Highest grade point average, ever.

    Marxism- Ditto from above.

    Alinsky'ism- Double ditto from above.

    Everything this person does, is straight from the three named above.

    His particular excellence, is Alinsky. He uses all 11 "rules". Further, he is a STAR with rule #5 and rule #11.

  2. Public opinion is strongly in favor of increased border control. He's mocking that opinion, as well as the Republicans. Such mockery is antithetical to the job of President of all of us, and hopefully enough of us will notice that to vote the rascal out next year.

  3. the left has a real problem distinguishing between illegal and legal immigration.

    just like they have a problem understanding the difference between activity and inactivity, commerce and non-commerce, etc.

  4. It's also an insult to Americans who do not have recent immigrants in their background but nevertheless manage to hold down jobs, raise good families, pay their taxes, and uphold American values. My mother's people came to American in the 1700s, which I guess makes me an unwelcome presence in my own country. I have and will continue to contribute far more of value to American society than most of the illegals who crash our borders. Welfare statistics show they are more interested in taking from America's bounty. Contributing to America and preserving its unique heritage is not as important to most illegals as it is to me. And I am getting quite tired of listening to them and to their supporters on the left.

  5. Why does the President of The United States of America --who voluntarily took an oath to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution"-- continually *REFUSE* to acknowledge the difference between a bona-fide LEGAL immigrant who complies with our laws, and an unknown entity whose ILLEGAL and UNAUTHORIZED presence here demonstrates that he has no respect for our laws?

    (And why does nobody in the MSM call him on it? Oops, I forgot, that's why The Propaganda Division of the Progressive Party is known informally as the MF-MSM...)

  6. If I were the Chairman of the Republican Party I would have a campaign commercial made of Barack Obama's NUMEROUS snide and denigrating remarks towards large portions of American society, business, and professions and have it run daily. We need to give The Great Divider his well earned Karma!!!
