School Lunch (Cap & Be) Trade - Amnesty For Democrat Votes.

Well folks, here it comes - the next drop in the bucket; the next shoe to hit the ground.  Fiberals have decided to table Cap & Trade legislation in favor of Immigration reform.  And Lindsey Graham is pissed.  As a result, Graham has walked away from his support of the Cap & Trade legislation.

Boo Freakin' Hoo...

Lindsey had taken a big step of faith - being the only Republican in the country to support the Graham-Schumer bill for Cap & Trade.  He also (foolishly) took Mr. Obama at his word that climate legislation would be pushed this year.  Now, as so many others have learned,  Mr. Obama's promises - whether written or oral - are not worthy of lining the bottom of a bird cage. Graham is out on a limb that's breaking.  He is up "Chit Creek" without a paddle.  He's out there alone in the political wilderness.  And Lindsey has no one to blame but himself.

There is also the desirable (for DNC) extra benefit of Fiberals being able to crow "Republicans don't want clean water!  Republican's don't want clean air!  Republican's don't want us to love Mother Earth!  Good job Lindsey...

And why has this come to pass?  Well kind reader, if you were not aware, Fiberals are being drawn and quartered in the polls.  Democrats are (if you believe said polls) in considerable danger of losing majorities on both houses of Congress, and being flailed in regional elections where Independent votes are walking, no running, away from the DNC is hoards.

To coin a phrase: "It's all about the votes, stupid!"

Specifically, it's about saving Obama's azz in 2012.  Some would have you believe it's about Harry Reid, but in honesty, I am not so sure.  Mr. Obama has routinely demonstrated agility while throwing once-useful politicians under his bus. And while I cannot get close enough to read Harry's expiration date, Reid’s loss (if ultimately a political windfall for Mr. Obama) is a price he'd gladly pay.  It would also allow Mr. Obama to use Reid's carcass to deflect some of the health care vitriol.  Just saying…

So, here we have two things happening in unison this Monday - Mr. Obama has a video speech circulating pushing young activists to engage first time voters - ostensibly young voters.  At the same time, Mr. Obama's taking sides in the recent Arizona legislation AND announcing the Obama Regime's push for an amnesty provision.

So who are the REAL first-time voters Mr. Obama is trying to coddle?  Why, the Hispanic vote, of course.  Now one might remember that Mr. Obama had the Hispanic vote in 2008.  And he had the young vote.  And he had the Black vote. And the female vote. And so on. 

But the prize Mr. Obama wants most of all?  The Independent vote.

Mr. Obama is trying in desperation to win back the non-affiliated who are running away in droves.  And Mr. Obama doesn't believe Cap & Trade will get them back.  He believes Immigration Reform and Amnesty will.  As such, he will seek to vilify Arizona for their Immigration legislation (which would have been unnecessary if the Federal Government was controlling our borders as mandated by the Constitution).  Mr. Obama will wait for any questionable event in Arizona to swoop in and "save the people".  He will add a free ride to millions by including amnesty for illegal aliens to his already bloated "Pussification Of America" doctrine.  Which of course will also cause unemployment, welfare and healthcare costs to spiral upward...

Gently reader, I am long on record as supporting a process by which those eligible for legal immigration can become legal resident aliens and citizens faster - streamlining the process.  But I am also on record as saying that flaws in the Immigration code cannot be mitigated by illegal immigration.  Illegal is illegal, period.  And illegal immigration should be address as a legal issue - law enforcement and courts - not political hacks in an election cycle.

This is a political stunt, plain and freakin' simple.  There is no way in hell Immigration legislation can be done by November.  But the bill is not what will count. Fiberal rhetoric from now to November will make oft mention of impending amnesty legislation.  Fiberal candidates and pundits will trumpet it with one side of their forked tongues, knowing full well that no legislation will be delivered until Mr. Obama can get political traction from it - and long after November 2010 has passed.

What if there is a GOP landslide in November?  Amnesty talks gone - buh bye!.  Until mid 2011.

Campaigning to mid-term elections, all the rhetoric you will hear regarding amnesty will be empty promises.  And why not, Mr. Obama excels with empty promises.  Don't believe me?  Call Lindsey Graham and ask him...
