Eleanor Clift, “The Daily Caller” Confirm Illegal Immigration is Key To Obama’s Reelection

Eleanor Clift, using pollster John Zogby as her puppet, is giddy with the prospect that Republican candidates running for President have given President Obama a “gift” in the form of opposing illegal immigration and gay marriage, which she quotes Zogby as saying is Obama’s “ace in the hole”.  What can possibly be meant by this?  Who in their right mind would not oppose illegal immigration?  Democrats, both naturally and obviously.  Doesn’t that validate the long held notion that Democrats are, in fact, not in their right mind, and thus a danger to America?

Zogby is only relating what the polls are telling him.  Clift, who support’s Obama as much as she supports illegal immigration, is merely picking up on statistics, probably rigged in the first place, to further her pro-Obama agenda.  What the polls don’t relate is the make up of people who actually were involved.  Since virtually all conservatives, and most Republicans, oppose illegal immigration, isn’t is fairly obvious who Zogby interviewed?

And gay marriage?  Republicans, on religious grounds may oppose gay marriage, and that might hurt the chances of some, depending on their political district.  However, what most Republicans oppose is allowing politicians, and especially our courts, to subvert the will of the people.  In other words, when the people directly vote in a referendum to oppose same sex marriage, only to have that vote overturned by political or judicial fiat, that goes against the American grain.  People don’t stand for it.  Some Republicans may not like it when the people directly vote to allow same sex marriage in a state.  Those Republicans that would attempt to overrule the will of the people only act against the best interests of conservatism.

It’s no secret to Eleanor Clift that Democrats and liberals support illegal immigration, including Barack Obama.  Neither is it a secret to her that without illegal immigration Democrats are hard pressed to win elections.  Democrats always find it that much more difficult to win elections without the help of illegal immigrants, the dead, children, imaginary people, etc.  Races are certainly tighter when Democrats plat “fair”.  Look at Bob Dornan.  The same happened to Norm Coleman and others who lost their seats in very tight races.

Who, then, is Obama’s only obstacle to reelection?  Using another pollster as her puppet, Geoff Garin, Clift writes:

Obama has real challenges with working-class voters.”

In other words, working people will tend to vote for Republicans, and the unemployed for Democrats.  So, for Obama to assure his reelection, it is to his advantage to have as many Americans unemployed and on government assistance, by November 2012 as possible.   Obama, and the Democrat Party, have been working feverishly since January 2009 to make that happen.  And just in case, they aren’t forgetting about the illegal immigrants.

Which is why, in “The Daily Caller”, there is a piece about E-Verify, and how Republicans, who favor small government, are purportedly being “hypocritical” when it comes to their support for making sure everyone in America are who they say they are when they apply for a job, and are not using made up names, or worse, stolen identities.

The writers, Mike Flynn and Stuart Anderson, say Republicans are “violating their pledge for smaller government” with legislation that, if enacted, would force all businesses in America to actually check on the information job seekers provide companies when they fill out a job application.  Well, who, other than illegal immigrants, would have a need to use false identification?  Prisoners, perhaps, who, after having served their sentence, have been released and are seeking employment.  Many businesses will not hire criminals, for obvious reasons, and using a fake, or stolen, identity is often the only way they can fool prospective businesses into hiring them.  Democrats, it should come as no shock, support legislation allowing prisoners to vote.  Any wonder why?

Writes Flynn and Anderson:

This questionable bill, which would affect job seekers and job creators alike, is awaiting word from the Republican House leadership on when it will come to the full House for a vote.

E-Verify, in this day and age, is hardly “questionable”.   It is an imperative tool all businesses need, whether they want it or not.  Never mind, for a moment, that illegal immigrants take away jobs from Americans.  E-verify is a safety feature which protects Americans from those people who would seek to harm them.  With regards to illegal immigrants, most just want to work.  However, some come to America specifically to spy and to plot terrorist attacks.  E-Verify is crucial for helping to prevent this.  It also helps cut down on identity theft.  If your social security number was stolen, and your vital, personal information was being used by someone else, wouldn’t you want to know?  And wouldn’t you support a system, like E-Verify, that would help catch the perpetrators?

Writes Flynn and Anderson

“A Pledge to America,” the Republican document released during last year’s congressional campaign, stated quite plainly: “Our plan stands on the principles of smaller, more accountable government; economic freedom … ” To be credible, conservatives cannot be about less government during a campaign season and months later support the largest federal intrusion into workplace hiring in recent memory.

The Republican “pledge to America” is indeed simple and straightforward, and remains the same “pledge” it has been for decades – lower taxes, less government, more personal freedom.

No where do Republicans support “no government”.  Republicans favor less, but more responsible, government.  The “intrusion” as these two writers call it, comes from the illegal immigrants themselves, using fake or stolen identification to gain employment.  The “intrusion” comes from liberals and Democrats who block legislation like E-Verify in their undying support of illegal immigration – a voting block Democrats absolutely need to win elections.

If E-Verify actually increases the size of government, and if Flynn and Anderson are worried that this “violation” hurts the reputation of Republicans, this can easily be remedied and off set by abolishing such Federal Departments as Education, HUD, Agriculture, Commerce, Transportation and Energy – to name a few.  (Maybe that will help Rick Perry.)

To be “credible” Flynn and Anderson wrote a hack piece.  So did Eleanor Clift.  However, the only “hacking” any of them managed to do was to their own credibility and reputations.  In their scurried efforts to slam Republicans, what they inevitably showed was how shallow Democrats are, and need to be, in order to win elections.

Isn’t that pathetic?
