Obama And Major Media Link Up In Assault On Arizona’s Attempt To Stop Foreign Invasion


Behold and listen to Obama, the master of Alinsky-like smooth talk, expounding about the misguided State of Arizona in one sentence, and the “failure” of the federal government to secure our borders in the next.  His words are carefully crafted to make us feel good.  The actions never match the words:
