What? Obama places partisan calculations above duty

Today we bring you an interesting bit of amnesty related information you are unlikely to read on the pages of the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic). The Daily Caller carries the facts and substantiating links.

Barack Obama’s 2012 unilateral legalization of 500,000 young illegals helped him win the 2012 election — at the cost of splitting 500,000 innocent, law-abiding American families for months on end, according to a New York Times article.

The ruthless political calculation was buried deep in the low-key article, which was published on page 20 of the local “New York edition” of the national newspaper. Obama directed officials to award work permits to the illegal immigrants, preventing them from preparing green cards for Americans’ foreign-born spouses and children.

Page Two of the report contains the most shocking of the revelations.  Make sure you read the entire Daily Caller piece, “Obama split 500,000 American families to legalize illegals before 2012 election,” by Neil Munro.

Arizonans have learned not to expect much from the state’s newspaper of record. Actual news in the anorexic, agenda driven, daily is the exception. As an example, the Republic Media Research Department emailed the following retch-inducing message Monday afternoon:

“In order to better tailor our products to your information needs, we’d like to ask a few questions about your cooking and dining habits. The survey will take approximately 6-8 minutes to complete. As a thank you for your time, you can enter to win a $50 Visa Gift Card at the end of the survey.

Thank you in advance for your participation. Your insights and feedback are extremely valuable to us!”

The newspaper’s own words betray the vacuous organ it has become, as it insults its few remaining readers.

    Little the opportunist Obama does surprises me. What does surprise and disgust is the fact that so called Republicans are working to award Obama the Democrat majority he craves via his mammoth amnesty strategies. What are the benefits McCain, Flake and previously Kyl thought we would achieve by virtue of expanding the liberal party? It surely won’t be the Hispanic vote!!

    Ha!! In order to better serve our “information needs,“ the lousy excuse for a newspaper could give us straight reporting by real journalists…..NOT students who can’t report, but are obviously cheaper to employ and will willingly propagandize for a paycheck in the miserable economy Obama has delivered.

    Just read on Breitbart that a syndicate consisting of liberal groups and labor unions are urging Harry Reid, the liberal extremist in their pocket, to change Senate rules on filibustering beyond the nuclear option. They argue the additional changes will speed up the confirmation of President Obama’s judicial nominees.

    McCain’s ‘benefit’ is elementary. That’s why the media, his critics, and his party have kept it buried for over a decade. The ‘key’ is in paragraph 3:

        Thanks very much MacBeth. Here’s a curious and revealing snip from Wikipedia:

        “…Like many businesses in the state, Hensley got caught up in the controversy surrounding the Arizona SB 1070 anti-illegal immigration law, with the group Somos America advocating a boycott of Hensley until the company denounced the law. The company called the action “an obvious cheap political stunt motivated solely by self promotion” and said that “Hensley Beverage Company/Budweiser will continue to embrace and encourage the wonderful diversity of our state.” The boycott gained little attention.

        Later that year, Hensley and Delgado joined the Partnership for a New American Economy, an effort started by Michael Bloomberg to push towards comprehensive immigration reform and in early 2011 Delgado signed a letter from a number of Arizona CEOs directed at Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce requesting that the legislature back off any more anti-illegal immigration measures….”
