Is President Obama Pandering to Hispanic Voters?

This type of pandering is fairly typical of this administration and most politicians in general.

So far we’ve witnessed President Obama and the Left go after Christianity, women’s rights, Bain Capital, gay marriage, and now the Hispanic vote.

It seems that this administrations tactics are to divide and conquer. Throughout the past 9 months I’ve witnessed tremendous splits in our society solely to pander to certain demographics in order to hopefully secure an election.

Currently President Obama has granted legal status to young illegal immigrants. According to the Alternative Press, “Under the administration’s new plan, illegal immigrants will be immune from deportation if they are under 30 and brought to the U.S. before they turned 16; have been in the country for at least five continuous years; have no criminal history; have graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED; or who have served in the military.”

A very loud and clear message is sent to Hispanic voters in swing states that President Obama needs to clinch to secure another four years. In essence the President is saying, I got your back. I scratch your back, you scratch mine. The President will grant the young entry into the U.S., therefore giving them the opportunity to create wealth for themselves, and in return he hopes that Hispanics will return the favor come election time.

This is the worst type of pandering. Pandering to human living beings is the equivalent of a one night stand. Use and abuse solely for your own goals, but instead of it being mutually beneficial for both parties only President Obama will gain if re-elected. If Republican hopeful Mitt Romney is elected these people, presuming they support Obama at the polls, will be in for a very rude awakening.

If he truly cared for the people he was pandering to he would have done these things long before his re-election bid came around.

Back on July 30th 2010 conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh predicted this exact fiasco.

  1. All politicians pander. It’s really the only thing they do well. Obama goes to swanky events at Hollywood mansions and Romney rents out resorts and invites over a thousand or so of his closest banking donors so he can whisper sweet promises in their ears. “We the people” have no real say in politics anymore. You need a big checkbook or a big special interest group or you’re nobody. Rove perfected the pander by orchestrating anti-gay marriage legislation across numerous red and swing states to bring out the religious right vote for Bush and by using any number of similar pandering/inciting techniques to mobilize the core Republican voters. Republicans are using the same tactics this election through various SuperPacs and front groups like ALEC by sponsoring shoot first laws, more anti-gay marriage amendments, and various collective bargaining/union rollback legislation in swing states. It’s only natural that the Democrats go with a system that has worked so well for the Rs in the past.

    But don’t stay up nights worrying about the Hispanics and the gays. I’m pretty sure Obama will have their back this time round without a reelection campaign to worry about.
