The Obama administration giving guns to enemies of the U.S., then lying about it, covering it up, and refusing to cooperate with the investigation after a U.S. border agent was murdered, now that might be evil.
But no, pointing out that this tragedy began with somebody willfully breaking U.S. immigration law, who then decided not to follow S.C. law and get a driver's license, and ended with her breaking the drunk driving laws and killing a U.S. citizen, is not evil.
Illegal immigrants begin their stay in the U.S. by metaphorically raising their hands and saying, "I don't care what your mofo law says, I'm breaking it." It's not a surprise when they disregard other laws and people end up dead, is it?
I'll take the statements one at a time...
The first statement. This illegal was here during the bush term, so it has nothing to do with Obama extending work permits to people who came here as children (back during the bush administration) so they can have the same responsibilities to things such as auto insurance to actually PREVENT things like this from happening.
The second statement. Obama, by himself, did not personally hand any weapons to anyone. That's something that's been going on by the ATF and the practice was started with Bush. In fact, remember the Iran-Contra scandal? That was Reagan. Remember the supposed WMD's that were supposed to be in Iraq but never found? Those were sent there by Bush Sr. In fact... bush's grandfather helped HITLER rise to power www.guardian.co.uk...
People need to be very careful where they throw their political attacks because they almost always come back to slap them in the face.
The third and fourth together. She came here under bush's watch, she obtained the drivers license under bush's watch. South Carolina is a heavily red state with state and local officials being extreme right wing republicans so all of the legal issues involved are on them if it is looked at from a political stance. This is the result of poor administration by the extreme right wing and the results that come from that.
With all of that out of the way, there is NO reason for that mother to be sent the bill (even if addressed to her son) for the cleanup of his dead body that was the fault of someone else and the heartless group that sent it (actually a republican judge) should be absolutely ashamed!!
People need to remember that just because the POTUS may be a democrat or a republican doesn't mean that every state is now considered to be of the same party. The laws and status of people who are in the country when a president is sworn in doesn't get an automatic reset like a video game. Every single issue we have today has been the conglomeration of events that have happened over the past 200+ years, not the result of who just happens to be sitting in the White House at any given time.
I'm not a big Obama supporter, I don't care much for him, however, I'd take him over bush absolutely ANY day. ...but then, I'd take almost anyone over bush, the man was a moron.
