Another Sociopath Heard From

Ann Coulter: Why can’t we deal with our border the way Netanyahu deals with Hamas?: "Appearing on Fox News Hannity, frequent guest Ann Coulter told host Sean Hannity that she wished Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was “our president,” so he could deal with our border problems the way he deals with border issues in his own country."

OK, So you hate Obama

A lot of my friends that are conservatives (yes, such folks exist) tell me that they can't stand Obama but whenever they are pressed to come up with something in particular they don't like it turns out to be:

  •  something that is either just untrue (he is trying to take our guns),
  •  he is soft on illegal immigration (more deportations than any other President), 
  • he propped up the banks (nope that was Bush 43 with TARP)
  • he wasted money with the stimulus (only true in that it was too small, although  cash for clunkers was indeed misguided)
  • He bailed out GM  (really, you want to have that conversation about how it would have been a good idea to crater what was left of the economy?)
  • OBAMACARE !!!! (only a bad idea in that it leaves the existing system mostly in place. Personally I am happy as hell because I would surely otherwise be uninsurable)
  • BENGHAZI!!! (oh please. You can TRY to hang this around Clinton's neck if you want but watch out for the blowback when she points out that the GOP cut the budget for embassy security)
That only leaves me with one thing that he is guilty of ... he is a Democrat. 

Tell me which of the clown car full of GOP candidates you found appetizing last time around and explain to me why they would have been better. 

Bachmann's Plan - Wasn't real

Michele Bachmann Suggests Labor Camps for Immigrant Children: "Bachmann’s plan? Send those children to labor camps, which she warmly refers to as “Americanization Facilities,” with the goal of having them pay off their past, present, and future care expenses, while assimilating them into American culture. And in exchange for that labor, the children would be fast-tracked on a path to citizenship."

Yeah, because nothing says "welcome to the USA" like making someone an indentured servant or even better Slave labor.
