The Picture That Will Burn Obama In November - August 16, 2012 By Dr. Kevin "Coach" Collins
A picture of “tens of thousands” of Barack Obama’s Chicago illegal aliens lining up to complete the process of “legally” stealing jobs from unemployed/underemployed Americans will prove the adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” For Americans searching for work, this image has to be downright sickening. It will come back to bite Barack Obama in November.
Initially, when Barack Obama decided to use our money, our jobs, and our lives to buy Hispanic votes with his illegal amnesty of illegal aliens, it seemed like he had produced a stroke of genius. The media fawned over the president (don’t they always?), and all was well in Leftistville. There would be an influx of once-illegal aliens who would now become newly registered Democrats. “So what if they’re not citizens – they’re Americans just like you and me!” the Democrats’ media cheerleaders told us. But alas for Team Obama, that was then, and this is now. This scheme promises to be yet another example of how adept Democrats have become at stomping around in the tall grass and finding rakes whose handles come flying up to hit them in the face.
The law of unintended consequences
All the flowery heart-breaking language about people “being forced to live in the shadows and now finally being able to step into the sunlight and reveal their presence” will do JUST THAT. They reveal themselves and remind us they are here and should be sent home.
The latest polling on what is important to likely voters done in June shows that just 5% are concerned about immigration issues, and it ranks fifth of eight issues. BUT the number one issue is JOBS, a concern for more than 1/3 of those surveyed.
This stunt has catapulted illegal aliens back into the consciousness of likely voters. Obama has taken an issue that was not on voters’ minds and slammed us in the face with it. Coupled with worry over how to get back into the workforce, pictures of tens of thousands of Obama’s illegal aliens lining up to now LEGALLY steal the few hard-to-find jobs that still exist have elevated a “nothing issue” to a major issue.
This was another mistake by Team Obama.
