Has Romney objected? Or are he and the republican insiders too frightened of the hispanic voting bloc?
Obama has acted illegally. He doesn't have power to unilaterally repeal immigration laws. The House could retaliate, but that would require more stones than John Boehner apparently has. All they have to do is cut a huge chunk of money from one of Obama's programs and refuse to put it back.
The key though is the republican leadership should have gone ballistic the minute this edict came out. Instead, they cowered in their offices, afraid of offending hispanics. If they had declared war and made it clear it would not stand, they could have forced Obama tro back down and earned the respect of voters. Instead, by their cowardice, they handed Obama a big victory and managed to disgust their own base at the same time.
It is about appeasing the Latinos now.
This is why laugh with all the Nazi's get upset about black folk. Black folk are not your problem.
To be clear, you are not a Nazi, nor do I consider you racist.
Do not be Mittens and let this post push you further right, please.
