Obama’s Cinco de Mayo message: “‘No’ is not an option” on the DREAM Act

posted at 9:31 pm on May 3, 2012 by Allahpundit

To be clear, “no” is an option on unemployment dropping below eight percent or America avoiding an entirely foreseeable entitlement-driven fiscal meltdown. But the DREAM Act, to which Congress has already said “no” several times? Nuh uh. That’s happening this time. At least rhetorically. A solid Hispandering strategy six months out from Election Day deserves nothing less.

“We’re going to keep fighting for this common-sense reform — not just because hundreds of thousands of talented young students depend on it, but because ultimately America depends on it,” the president said at the annual Cinco de Mayo reception at the White House. “‘No’ is not an option. I want to sign the DREAM Act into law. I’ve got the pens all ready. I’m willing to work with anybody who is serious to get this done, and to achieve bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform that solves this challenge once and for all.”…

In his brief remarks, Obama welcomed everyone to celebrate the “tres de Mayo” at this year’s party. The president will spend the real Cinco de Mayo this Saturday campaigning in Ohio and Virginia. “We just like to get the fiesta started early around here,” he joked.

It’s smart of him to focus on the DREAM Act specifically instead of immigration reform generally since it turns up the heat on Rubio’s forthcoming DREAM bill. That’s really win/win for O: If Rubio can figure out a way to get it through the Senate and the House, Obama gets a big signing ceremony he can use to try to make himself the public face of the legislation. If the GOP deadlocks over the bill and it fails, Obama gets to do a round of media hits about how the Democrats are Latinos’ only reliable friends on immigration and how Mitt Romney will certainly bow to conservative pressure if elected and end up opposing future versions of the bill. For that reason, it’s almost unimaginable that Romney will oppose Rubio’s measure, no matter how far it goes as a limited amnesty. Whether or not it’s actually true that immigration will be a key issue for Latino voters — according to Quinnipiac, they’re split nearly evenly on Arizona’s immigration law — it’s enough of a risk that Romney won’t feel safe being on the other side of the issue. Imagine if he and Rubio make the case for the bill nationally and it ends up going down in flames in the Republican House anyway. Romney will have been embarrassed by his own caucus and Democrats will trot out their “Republicans hate Latinos” talking-point demagoguery notwithstanding his support for the bill, which I guess actually makes this a win/win/win for Obama. Remind me again — why is Rubio rolling this thing out now?

Here’s a brutal bit of satire that I’ve been meaning to post for the last few days. It’s a cutting take on identity-politics gimmicks, and of course the Republicans get it far worse than the Democrats. With the Onion, you’ve got to take the bitter with the sweet. Exit question: Is Mitt planning on doing any Spanish-language media hits this year? We all understand he’s going to lose the Latino vote but contesting it would be helpful.

Hispandering is a trap set by the progressives.

There is no way the GOP can out hispander the democrat party, which is built from the ground up from identity politics and racial grievance mongering.

The only way to get those votes, is to bring them the message of core conservative values, and how those will help them and everyone else too.

What bugs me is that so many people believe May 5 is such a major holiday. It isn’t. In fact, until they started making a big deal of it in the US, it was never a big deal AT ALL in Mexico. Now it is a big drinking fest mostly in the US and in Mexican tourist towns that cater to US tourists.

It isn’t like it is some holiday of major Mexican cultural importance. To pander to Mexicans in May 5 is like saying “Hey, I am a big giant gringo and am trying to find a way to pander to you for your vote”. S

September 16 is actually Mexico’s independence day and is the day they celebrate like our 4th of July.

Ann Coulter’s article “Deport the GOP Establishment” makes the case for Romney to hold the line on immigration beautifully.

There is no ‘upside’ to the DREAM Act. It only functions to encourage people to bring their children here illegally on the promise that they will be given amnesty… and through that child… the parents on ‘family unification’. Its chain migration and a way for people who aren’t qualified to become legal immigrants, or who simply choose to disregard the law, to bypass the legitimate immigration system.

Quinipac released a poll that puts Latinos evenly divided in Arizona. Coulter points out that the Democrats want to grant amnesty for the potential votes, and the GOP establishment wants to grant amnesty for the cheap labor. Coulter draws the analogy of trying to mop up the bathroom floor after someone has left the spigot on, but starting to mop before turning off the spigot. we need to turn off the spigot and then mop up. Its time to put an end to the pandering and wrangling.

We accept over 1 million legal immigrants per year in this nation. About 750,000 legal immigrants and about 250,000 plus asylum seekers. Most of these 1 million are low skilled or unskilled people from third world nations, however,we are accept few Europeans, regardless of their qualifications. We need scientists, engineers, and doctors. We have plenty of low skilled or unskilled people in the country.

Romney promised to ‘turn off the magnates that attract illegal immigrants’ and to enforce the law with no preferential treatment, or exception to the law, for those who are here illegally. He promised to secure the border. To paraphrase Romney, we should staple a green card to every legal foreign student’s diploma. It makes no sense to send those young people home when they’ve just earned their degrees here. We need those talented and educated young people.

We don’t need to pass the DREAM Act. We need to revive the AMERICAN DREAM for our citizens and legal immigrants.

Cinco de tres, cinco de quatro, cinco de cinco… fact is, every time I’ve found myself working in Mexico on Cinco de Mayo, nobody observes it.

Unlike, say, Kwanzaa, it’s not an invented holiday. It does commemorate a real event, though one of far less importance to Mexicans than Independence Day, September 16.

Cinco de Mayo is a much bigger deal for beer companies. And probably the second most popular holiday in Los Angeles after Halloween. You knew it would be.

Why didn’t Obama do this in 2009? 2010? While the Dems still controlled Congress?

Multiple Obama administration officials tell CNN that the White House is not pushing to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill this year [2009].

While it’s a top priority for the president’s first term, White House spokesman Nick Shapiro says “the president has consistently said that he wants to start the discussion later this year because our immigration system is broken … but the economy comes first.”

Of course, they did nothing about the economy in 2009 or 2010, either. Except make it worse.

Congressional Democrats are responsible for the economic crash. The Republicans began attempting to more closely regulate the GSEs in 2001. They tried again in 2003 and again in 2005. Congressional Democrats blocked it every time.

“The King of Bain” slashed jobs and shuttered individual plants of companies that would have died completely had he NOT done that and you know that good and well. I don’t believe you are that stupid. Sometimes when a company is swirling around the bowl you have to pare it down a little to save it. That is the one things Democrats just do not seem to be able to get through their cement heads. They point to Republicans and complain that they want to cut benefits, etc. yet the Democrats seem to fail to realize that without cutting them back, the programs are going to go completely broke and there will be nothing.

The Democrats are absolutely unsustainable in their incredible thirst for stealing the taxpayer’s money and raiding the treasury to buy votes.

Normally I don’t respond to trolls, but that one just got to me because it is absolutely dumb.

John Kettlewell on May 4, 2012 at 3:36 AM

Thanks, Allah.

One thing Mitt, the GOP, and most of the commenters here are missing is the need to build an infrastructure for longer term inroads among Hispanics.

Though they voted 67% for Obama in 2008 in political attitudes they are no different from the rest of the country according to the excellent Pew Hispanic Center: one third liberal, one third moderate, and one third conservative.

The Hispanic Center’s When Labels Don’t Fit: Hispanics and Their Views of Identity is essential reading for conservatives wanting to understand how to make inroads among Hispanics.

Whatever the politics are of the Dream Act and all that, the one thing Mitt, the GOP, and every conservative keyboard warrior at Hot Air must do is hold Hispanic Democrats feet to the fire for their shameless silence on the victimization and murder of Hispanics and particularly Hispanic Catholics by Fast and Furious: Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up as Katie Pavlich has entitled her essential Bible on the scandal.

Everyone at Hot Air needs to buy it and master it. The scandal is going to do more to lose Hispanic votes for Obama than any fiddling about with the Dream Act if Mitt and Marco, the GOP, and the warriors of Hot Air start hammering away.

Obama callously disregarded the lives of Hispanics including Hispanic Democrats when he launched Fast and Furious (Rapido y Furioso) to make sure that weapons found their way to Mexican drug cartels under the supervision of the ATF in order to shut down guns shops in the US to destroy the Second Amendment.

That is how cynical Obama is about Hispanic lives. We need to confront Hispanic Democrats about their lack of outrage and failure to confront the leadership of their party over the slaughter of their fellow Hispanics.

If that is not enough of an outrage for Hispanics, on top of it in the battleground state of Florida that is hosting the Republican Convention in Tampa in August, Obama and Al Sharpton have fomented a race war explicitly aimed at Hispanics including Hispanic Democrats.

They have contemptibly branded George Zimmerman, a registered Democrat, as a “white Hispanic” and lynched him as a murderer for doing nothing more than responding to pleas from his neighbors to guard their gated community, which includes Hispanics, blacks, and whites.

By their silent complicity Hispanic Democrats are accepting their second class citizenship (not to mention field Negro status) on the liberal and progressive democrat plantation that is run by a pro-abortion, gun hating African American establishment.

I have been impressed by the guerilla warfare from conservative keyboard activists. We have been all over the comments on every recent article by a Democrat to deflect accountability over FAF.

Mitt, the GOP, and my fellow conservative activists need to keep hammering away at Obama’s betrayal of Hispanic Democrats.
