Obama needs to pander since he lost the whte vote by 20 % . hy is the media so intent on selling this when it is clear that the majority of American Citizens want border control first . Posted by: Michael | February 7, 2013, 11:42 am 11:42 am _______ Obama won don't you remember? Why would he need to pander to anyone. The majority of Americans want immigration reform including a safe boarder but not first...at the same time. Placing "boarder control" first is basically saying that the reform will never happen because republicans will continuously claim that the boarder is not "controlled." This is all about protecting obama and selling amnesty. Obama needs to pander since he lost the whte vote by 20 % .

That’s how we’re communicating right now. …… Posted by: CarsonCitySteve | February 6, 2013, 4:24 pm 4:24 pm _____Ya know I have to first ask if you are replying to me when you right to "Stone." If so that is funny....my name is from a SiFi TV series I loved a while back but Stone...I would have preferred Stoner though. I don't mean just communicating, although I do enjoy intelligent and maybe sometimes sarcastic exchanges. I really mean to VOTE by some means so we can have an accurate accounting of the "will of the people." Stone, We already can. That’s how we’re communicating right now. ……

I am really just complaining that we are country run by “polls” and not people. Everything, everywhere is “polled” to see what public opinion is, rather that addressing the real issue. And it doesn’t matter what the “issue” is. Posted by: CarsonCitySteve | February 6, 2013, 4:05 pm 4:05 pm _____ I agree. We are the richest most powerful and innovative country in the world why can we not come up with a system whereby everyone can vote on some question or issue to see how the majority of the country really feels about something instead of picking and choosing who to call for the poll. You have Dems claiming the Repubs polls are bias and Repubs claiming the Dem polls are bias and no one trusts the other. One person on vote that is it. Stone, I understand that.

It’s a poll. He’s not running again, who cares if he “looks” good? Posted by: CarsonCitySteve | February 6, 2013, 2:53 pm 2:53 pm _____ I think you are missing the point. The issue is that most Americans support his position on immigration. This has nothing to do with how President Obama "looks." Why is this even “news”. It’s a poll. He’s not running again, who cares if he “looks” good?

There are days when I believe that there is some sort of mind meld with republicans in that one of them comes up with a new phrase like "save and strengthen Medicare" by gutting it or changing it into a voucher system....ya, that is really "saving" it. It is like they all get what the game is an willfully play along with it. Sometimes I think we, as a society, are becoming insane where what they say has absolutely nothing to do with what they actually do...how do they resolve such cognitive dissonance?
