Whatever It Takes

  Well, it looks as though the Democrats have the 2012 election all sewn up. Let's see, they have all the convicted felons, and dead people on board. Who else were they missing? Oh that's right, trying to figure out a way to make it possible for illegal aliens to vote! Sorry, but if you have not figured out that we are NOT politically correct here at The Conservative Cauldron, well, I can't help you.
 Anyway, President Obama, once again, did another end-run around that pesky Constitution, you know, that "living breathing" document? In an Executive Order today, the President stated that the United States would no longer deport young illegal aliens, but instead, those who are younger than 30, but older than 16, would find it much easier to get work permits. This would effect roughly 800,000 young people, who were brought here illegally as children.
  Those of us who fully understand why people will risk life and limb to come to America know that part of the reason they do so is that so their children can experience all the possibilities that America has to offer. Anyone who can remember the story of five year old Elian Gonzalez, who was found floating in the Atlantic ocean with the body of his Mother beside him had to get a lump in their throat just knowing that she was more than willing to give her life so that he could come here and succeed. Unfortunately, we all know how that story ended.
  Today's announcement has nothing to do with offering a chance to young people who were brought here by no fault of their own. No, today was about elections. Elections and politics. Pure and simple. Historically, Democrats have carried the Latino vote. What makes this year different? Perhaps the looming possibility of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio being named as Mitt Romney's Vice Presidential pick has Liberals getting all nervous and sweaty. Could it be that even though they tend to vote Democratic, Latino voters are quite a traditional group of people. Very pro-family and predominantly Catholic. Hmmm, I seem to remember Obama being in the dog house with Catholics lately over mandated birth-control clauses in Obama Care. Any connection? You be the judge.
 One can also imagine that this announcement is also very welcome by natural born Americans who have been out of work for a year or more. Just what they want to hear. More competition for jobs. although the Obama re-election team stated a while ago that they had written off the White working class vote. How convenient.
  I am reminded of a scene in the movie "Ghostbusters". When the Mayor of New York is deciding whether or not to send in the Ghostbusters to eradicate all those nasty spirits, Bill Murray looks at the Mayor, pats him on the cheek and says, "Think about it. will have saved the lives of thousands of registered voters". Next scene, in go the Ghostbusters.
  Bottom line. This is an election year. Whatever it takes.
