As I expected, the madness in the White House has begun to have its political repercussions. The flood of illegal immigrants being transported into every state has created a broad backlash. It is not just the “right wing” or the GOP, or even independents and moderates beginning to cry foul.
Less off Americans are beginning to realize this Democrat President has thrown them under the bus – or at least under a wave of cheap labor who will also drain limited state support systems for the less fortunate. Just wait until the long lines are everywhere, packed with people from outside our country competing for the fruits of America. From schools to emergency rooms, free clinics to DMVs, Americans are going to be competing with unwanted ‘guests’ in many parts of this country. And they will have a Democrat President to thank.
The first big sign of this erosion I have seen is a massive dip in President Obama’s Approval rating at Gallup. Today it is underwater 39-55%. A little over a week ago it was only under 44-49%. Going from -5% to -16% in one week is a bit of a hint.
And for Democrats this is just the first of many dying canaries to come leading into the November elections where now 10-12 Senate seats could be in play and where a GOP takeover is becoming almost a given. So while Obama thumbs his nose at the Democrat base (e.g., the poor, the under employed and minorities) and turns a wave of illegals into a wave of needy mouths and cheep labor, that base will slowly begin to turn away from the Democrats.
As AllahPundit noted, when you lose Ed Schultz you can pretty much be sure something has gone horribly wrong in the Democrat White House. Watch and wonder!
Amazing! I truly love the part where Ed observes there is no way Democrats can go home and campaign on blanket Amnesty!
Schultz also is correctly alarmed about handing out unearned work permits to 5 million illegal immigrants to compete for jobs with Americans who are themselves hurting economically. These newly challenged Americans who vote, or will just not vote for a Democrat, will create a political shift never before seen once the President allows people from other countries to jump to the head of the line for a better life here in America
Funniest point: Schultz is crying for ‘process’ – code word for ‘rule of law’.
He is not the only one beginning to panic on the left, and he won’t be the last
As I stated in part 1 of this series of posts, Obama is beginning to lay down enough damage to Democrats that they soon will be the ones crying for Impeachment. Right now Shultz is just trying to wave Obama off. What happens if Obama does not care, then what will the Democrats do?
Update: More polls showing the damage being done to Democrats by our Lame Duck President:
Public approval of Obama’s immigration policies has slipped from 22 percent in May, to 18 percent in July, according to a late July poll of 1,044 Americans by Associated Press and GfK Public Affairs.
Disapproval climbed from 43 percent to 57 percent, marking a 18-point shift away from Obama, said the poll.
The remaining 25 percent of respondents didn’t care much about the immigration issue.
The public’s attitude toward legal immigration has shifted by 25 points in only two months, according to a July 29 poll by the D.C.-based Public Religion Research Institute, which generally promotes a pro-immigration perspective.
In May, 61 percent of respondents to an earlier Public Religion poll agreed that “Immigrants today strengthen our country because of their hard work and talents.” Just 29 percent agreed that “Immigrants today are a burden on our country because they take our jobs, housing and healthcare,” said the earlier poll.
But those 61 percent to 29 percent scores shifted sharply after early June, once the public noticed the flood of Central Americans across the borders and into the welcoming arms of Obama’s federal government.
The new poll showed that only 49 percent of the July respondents approve of immigration, and 42 percent disapprove of immigration, despite the social pressure on Americans to welcome immigrants.
