Shocking! Half of Americans Oppose Obama’s Immigration Lawsuit   Leave a comment

What a startling revelation!  Half of Americans Oppose Obama’s Immigration Lawsuit?  I’m sure it’s far more than that, considering that Yahoo is very Left and has been putting the Arizona law down from day 1.  Certainly no on asked ME MY opinion on the matter. >snort< Doubt anyone can guess where I stand! 😀

Half of Americans oppose Obama’s immigration lawsuit: poll

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Half of Americans reject President Barack Obama’s lawsuit against Arizona’s controversial immigration law, with only a third supporting the move, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.

With key midterm elections just around the corner in November, the Obama administration is facing strong support for the law, which makes it a crime to be in the state — bordering Mexico — without proper immigration papers.

“Emotions run high on both sides of the issue,” Gallup said. “The substantial majority of those in favor and those opposed to the lawsuit say they feel strongly about their position.”

It noted that those who followed news about the law most closely were most likely to oppose it.

Obama’s Democratic administration is seeking an injunction through the Justice Department to stop the Arizona law from going into effect on July 29, slamming it as unconstitutional, abusive and divisive.

Nearly eight in 10 Republicans (79 percent) opposed the lawsuit, while 56 percent of Democrats were in favor of the Obama administration’s decision.

Overall, 50 percent of Americans said they were against the move, compared to 33 percent in favor.

Other polls have also shown strong national support for Arizona’s measure, the first law making illegal immigration a state crime.

“The Obama administration is sailing against the tide of public opinion in its efforts to block the law, although members of Obama’s own party certainly support the administration,” Gallup said.

But the political implications of the federal government’s decision are “difficult to predict with precision” with less than four months remaining before legislative and gubernatorial elections, it added.

Well, the political implications of IGNORING the people you are SUPPOSED to be serving is pretty simple to predict.  It would mean that even MORE people will hate you and loathe everything that you do. 

Whenever I see something come out in the news that Obama states, puts out, suggests, or implements, I shudder.  Sometimes I don’t even want to look at the news anymore because it’s all just so depressing.  But then they win, I suppose.  If I stop looking at this train wreck of an administration and try to put out as much information as I can, then how will other people find it.  I’m not sure if I’m making a difference with my blog, and I doubt I’m changing any minds or helping people to think outside the media-box, but at least when all the dust settles and the pieces of our country settle after being scattered across our great land by the proverbial fan, I can honestly say that I TRIED to fight back in non-violent, intellectual ways.  I will honestly be able to say that I did something instead of remain blind and ignorant.

Ahem, anyway!  On we go!
