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.
