Re: Peter Brimelow`s Blog: Obama`s Immigration Speech: Stop Laughing, He`s Serious

As an Independent Barack Obama supporter, I am beyond horrified after hearing one of the worst speeches of my life from a normally great orator. It was as if Obama were in a contest to utter the most obsolete, maudlin immigration clichés possible. Some of Obama`s trite analysis may have been true in the 1800s—but not today.

Obama`s shocking support of amnesty shows what happens when a president surrounds himself with staff and advisors who engage in pro-minority group think. 

His speech was simple-minded in its endorsement of the same disastrous 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act and in its rejection of the common good of American people.

After listening to Obama, I`m sobered to see what we are up against. Now we must fight longer, harder and smarter to preserve America.
