An unsettling development has reared its ugly head for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just one week before the midterm elections. Fox News reports, “An aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reportedly lied to federal immigration and FBI agents and submitted false federal documents to the Department of Homeland Security to cover up an illegal seven-year marriage to a Lebanese national who was the subject of an Oklahoma City Joint Terror Task Force investigation.”
In a last-ditch effort to salvage the Democratic majority, President Obama is encouraging Hispanic voters to remain inspired by stalled immigration "reform" to vote against Republicans on Election Day. More importantly, President Obama is inspiring his constituents to �punish our enemies and reward our friends,� encouraging a similar kind of �thugocracy� we have seen with labor unions.
President Obama indicates that he and his aides have outlined an agenda for after the midterm elections on November 2, one that will be “bipartisan,” and will focus on cutting the deficit, overhauling No Child Left Behind, and passing further free-trade pacts.
Item: The Wall Street Journal for October 8 reported that President Obama is likely to scale back his legislative plans next year, citing immigration reform as an example. White House officials have indicated “a willingness to push through piecemeal changes to immigration law, instead of a comprehensive bill that combines border controls and immigration law enforcement with a path to citizenship for many of the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country.”
