I thought about this last night and came to a realisation, those who qualify for his new amnesty cant vote for him. However the amount of people who will become guest workers will lower the unemployment rate greatly right away, so he goes into the summer election season touting a huge drop in unemployment, while not saying these people worked before but now they are counted so no real change will have taken place. This is the ultimate smoke and mirrors show, he will say look how we saved the economy, look at the recovery as he manipulates the numbers to his favor as the MSM barks like seals in aggrement. I agree with all the posts saying this is about votes, that is 100% correct, but the unstated reason is the unemployment rate and that will never be spoken of in the MSM and i dought most people have even considered this as a reason but i am sure it is. I would like comments if im correct or totaly off base, i am convinced its a 2fer, yes future voters, but imediate drop in unemployment while not actually doing anything to create jobs, just change some numbers.

Many jobs have to be "created" for the rate to lower.

How will Obama's new plan create new jobs ?

Obama will suffer a net loss on votes with this.

You misunderstand what i am saying, and we totaly agree too, it will NOT create a single job, my point is that those who qualify will now be counted as employed, most of these are undocumented and cash paid in many cases, now they will appear as employed, thus lowering the uneployment rate. Obama wouldnt have done a darn thing but can go out and say "look at how we have recovered the economy, look at the hundreds of thousands of jobs created" while not creating one single job, just counting those already working who werent counted before.Its a snow job put it like this, hey we just found 800,000 jobs that we didnt know we had there lets countm, now unemployment is 5-6% and he did NOTHING, but claims it.

Amnesty dude. AMNESTY. I'm not that picky, I make mistakes two (c?) but if they're is a bug read line under the word you just spayed it means you did it wrong. Write? I now I write.

Not all browsers have a built-in spell checker.

Its getting pretty annoying that even though Romney agrees with Obama on this, he has to disagree with Obama on this.

i totally accept your suggestion...

'i too think that this side-step action to pass a 'Dream Act' clone is a deliberate ploy to fuzzy up the numbers on a few things... employment included

yes a big number of unrecognized 'jobs' will skew the statistics, as all those green card jobs will now be counted a workers and the total workforce will grow as the long term unemployed are erased from the system

so too will the # of workers contributing tax withholdings, medicare & social security from their wages, all which can be manipulated to make the USA a magnet for investment and continued economic ratings of AA or better while the EU disintegrates and the BRICS nations flounder in recession

Unemployment is calculated by the number of people claiming and currently accepting unemployment.

This will increase the numbers.

In my humble opinion. . . .
