President Of MA Senate Says “Everybody Has A Right To Come To America…And if they come here illegally, it’s up to Congress…to create a path [to citizenship]”

This video of President of the MA Senate, Therese Murray has created a bit of a stir in the Commonwealth.

In the May 1 speech to the Cape and Islands Democratic Council, Murray sought to energize Democrats in advance of a tough election cycle, slamming the Tea Party as “nutcases,” decrying “hate” in the tone of the national immigration debate, and calling for a clearer path to citizenship for immigrants.

Here’s the part concerning immigrants:

You heard right:

“Every person has the right to come to America. Everyone has the right to citizenship. And if they come here illegally, it’s up to Congress…to create a path [to citizenship.]”

Michael Graham asks: Who’s The Fringe Lunatic Who Says “Everyone Has The Right To Come To America?”

Graham has the longer version of the video at his site where she calls teabaggers *oops!* partiers “nut cases”,  blames Bush for the economy, and decries the “hate” in the immigration debate.

He notes:

The good news is that we’re not stuck with Terry Murray. She has an opponent, Tom Keyes, who rejects her far-Left lunacy out of hand. I’ve met him once and he seemed pretty solid—but check him out for yourself.

Then—PLEASE—volunteer, vote for, or send a check to Keyes, if only to save us from this woman remaining (no joke!) the most powerful member of the Massachusetts State Senate.

UPDATE:

Audio: Tom Keyes and Howie go after Senate President Therese Murray

Obama Uses Campuses for Rallies Once Every 12 Days

I received this press release via email from the YAF:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 28, 2010

Obama Uses Campuses for Rallies Once Every 12 Days

Young America’s Foundation Research Reveals President Has Spoken on a College Campus 47 Times during His Presidency

HERNDON, VA – Tonight’s speech President Obama is giving at University Wisconsin-Madison will mark the 47th time he has given a speech on a college campus since he was sworn in as President. At this rate, he is speaking to college students once every 12 days.

This new research should reveal that the Left is constantly attempting to indoctrinate students on college campuses across the country. While the economic growth is nonexistent and youth unemployment is at record highs, President Obama finds college administrators and faculty are eager to do his bidding.

Young America’s Foundation’s research found that the most common subject of these speeches is the economy and jobs. More specifically, the president has used college campuses to tout his failed stimulus program and try to convince audiences that adding more debt to their names was worthwhile.

The second most common topic covered by the President was Obamacare. The President is not only trying to convince young people that they should be happy they are going to be burdened with more debt, but they should also embrace a government takeover of healthcare.

President Obama’s most recent speech, which will be held at University Wisconsin-Madison, will be streamed live at 200 separate locations. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is reimbursing the school with $10,500 for hosting the speech. (It cost the Madison Police Department about $117,000 to staff his appearance at UW-Madison last November.) Teachers on campus are being encouraged not to cancel classes by administrators.

This report, in conjunction with the recent study that found that the majority of campaign funding from faculty is going to the Left, should put to rest the false notion that campuses do not have a liberal bias. The Left sees college campuses as the spring board for their liberal agenda, and President Obama has been in a perpetual campaign mode since taking the oath of office.

Interesting, no? It’s not surprising that the Marxist professor would gravitate to college campuses to propagandize students…but I had no idea he had been doing it this often.

How Obama Fights Pt. 2

This is barely worth mentioning because it is what we’ve all come to expect from Obama. Those of us who were paying attention saw how Obama fought throughout the 2008  election campaign –  this tendency he has of demonizing his opposition was something to behold. We knew it didn’t bode well for the country, should he be elected, and we were right. Instead of having a President who stays above the political fray, we have, for perhaps the first time in our nation’s history, a President who singles out Americans/groups/corporations to publicly disparage, and who makes a habit out of pitting Americans against each other. This latest example of the President attacking Fox News should be shocking, but sadly this sort of behavior has become commonplace for the Obama administration.

Obama went after Fox in an interview with Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner for an upcoming issue of the magazine. The cover story is titled “Obama Fights Back”:

[Laughs] Look, as president, I swore to uphold the Constitution, and part of that Constitution is a free press. We’ve got a tradition in this country of a press that oftentimes is opinionated. The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history. Before that, you had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It’s a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it’s been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it’s that Fox is very successful.

There is so much wrong with this, one hardly knows where to start. First of all…why single out Fox News? Why not the grotesque, left-wing biased MSNBC? Fox News is far and away the most watched and most trusted cable news station. Why alienate all those viewers who represent mainstream America? It doesn’t even make sense, unless you look at him not as President of the United States, but a radical organizer/agitator, trying to fire up his left-wing minions.

Does he have any idea how unpresidential this bitchy sniping makes him look?

As Drew at AoSHQ says:

Can you imagine if George W. Bush spent 1/10 the time whining like a little girl about the press that Obama does?

Obama is the most thin skinned, lying, anti-prosperity, anti-American exceptionalism President in memory and he’s lecturing people about what is destructive to America? The irony, it burns!

Call me when Fox News has put this country on a path to fiscal ruin. Call me when Fox News has endangered the health care of nearly every American. And call me when Fox News has sold out freedom loving allies to authoritarian thugs.

Until then Mr. President…shut the f*ck up.

And like Drew goes on to say, this “golden age of  an objective press” of which he speaks,  is when liberals had a monopoly of all three network news stations. And now that there’s one that doesn’t shut out conservative voices, (which, it turns out, are the ones most Americans want to hear), libs have to  throw their wittle temper tantwums. You expect to see that in the comment sections of Daily Kos, or Democratic Underground. But to hear the President of the United States talk that way is beyond sickening.

Former SEIU Boss Andy Stern under FBI investigation

If, like me,  you were wondering what could have prompted Stern, one of Obama’s “Fiscal Responsibility” Panel members, to quit the SEIU so abruptly back in April, I think we have our answer:

The FBI and the U.S. Labor Department are investigating prominent labor leader Andy Stern in their probe of corruption at the Service Employees International Union, according to two people who have been interviewed by federal agents.

The two organized labor officials met with federal agents this summer to answer questions about a six-figure book contract that Stern landed in 2006 and his role in approving money to pay the salary of an SEIU leader in California who allegedly performed no work.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation. The FBI and the Labor Department’s office of inspector general declined to comment for the record.

The scandal plagued SEIU is spending an estimated $44 million to support its favored Democratic candidates while members’ pension funds are disappearing and the union’s debt is piling up. This weekend, they’ll be bussing thousands of union members to DC for the moonbat march on Washington. Malkin suggests that they “take a detour and protest at the SEIU headquarters instead.”

Alan Grayson, You Approved That Message?

Alan Grayson, you ignorant slut.

This will  go down in the annals as one of the slimiest smears ever attempted by a left-wing pol, and that puts you in some stiff competition.

Alan Grayson’s latest attack ad, like his first one, was already too absurd and over the top to be taken seriously. But now we find out that Daniel Webster’s words were so dishonestly edited for the ad,  that it looks like he said the exact opposite of what he did say:

Right. This gentle, Godly man is the equivalent of the Taliban.

See Moe Lane and Caleb Howe for more choice commentary on Grayson’s shameless smear.

MORE:

Ed Morrissey: Video: The context behind Grayson’s despicable “Taliban Dan” ad

Webster’s wife Sandy, supposedly the victim of her husband’s “oppression,” summed it up well:

“Alan Grayson is a disgrace to this district.”

As is every Grayson campaign staffer that collaborates in this smear — chief among them Grayson’s campaign manager Susannah Rudolph, who spent yesterday attempting to defend the obviously and egregiously dishonest ad, even after the Orlando Sentinel exposed it as a fraud.  This incident shows perfectly why Grayson, Rudolph, et al have no business anywhere near power.

Even Factcheck is disgusted:

We thought Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida reached a low point when he falsely accused his opponent of being a draft dodger during the Vietnam War, and of not loving his country. But now Grayson has lowered the bar even further.

Love this comment:

Daniel Webster says he will “eat” (clip of Webster saying “eat”) “your” (clip of Webster saying “your”), “baby” (clip of Webster saying “baby”), if you vote for him.

The Other McCain takes issue with Drew’s assessment: Alan Grayson Is Not Scum

Allan Grayson is the disease-causing bacteria which infect the parasitical worms found in putrid diarrhetic feces oozing from the rectums of scavengers that prey upon maggots which grow in the decaying carcasses of poisonous vipers that die after eating insects which consume tainted scum.

(This has been a public service announcement from Floridians Against the Defamation of Scum.)

I’m with McCain on this one.

Exit question: Should I issue a retraction, and an apology to ignorant sluts for defaming them?
