The Treason Lobby
was on parade on Thursday â€“ President Obama finally met with assorted Congressthings to plot how to foist Amnesty/Immigration Acceleration onto America. Apparently matters did not go well.
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel
was no help. He has being widely quoted saying that the task is difficult â€“ for instance at this Christian Science Monitor Breakfast
the same morning:
Iâ€™ll say itâ€™s self evident - one of the reasons youâ€™re having the meeting is because the votes arenâ€™t there. Thatâ€™s kinda â€“ If the votes were there, you wouldnâ€™t need to have the meeting, youâ€™d go to a roll call. OK?
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus and immigration groups have all asked for a meeting because the votes arenâ€™t there. And they asked for the meeting and thatâ€™s why weâ€™re doing the meeting, to help focus on what does it takeâ€¦.
Itâ€™s better that it happen from a policy standpoint. Itâ€™s obviously self-evident that it would be better if it happened from a political standpoint. But itâ€™s also better that we continue to focus on moving the economy â€“ getting the economy moving.
Possibly this lack of enthusiasm is what alarmed Amnesty fanatic Lindsey Graham (Scalawag
Senator Lindsey Graham...also said he saw only "one more chance" to pass a bill because of the political heat that immigration reform stirs up.
"If we can`t get it done this time around, no politician is going to take this up in a generation. That would be a shame for this country," Graham said.Obama pledges push this year for immigration reform By Doug Palmer Reuters

Graham of course has a record of making silly remarks
on Immigration. But he is right to be alarmed. Without a supportive White House he is in serious danger of being proved a fool - like John McCain.
The Obama White House has no particular reason to do anything on Amnesty. The Hispanic lobby does not have the power to force the issue. They are not big enough
, and they are bound hand and foot
to the Democrats anyway.
The problem the Patriots have is that time is against us. By simply not enforcing
immigration law, the degeneration
of the country into a third-world Spanish-speaking
slum will continue, and the Democrats can look forward to being permanently what Peter Brimelow called, at the end of his CPAC essay
this past March
a minority occupation government.
