The Obamnesty Travesty
My column in this Wednesday's Courier-Journal will address Obama's Executive Amnesty and the underpinning of Obama's legal education that in my opinion helped him rationalize that overreach.
One point that space did not permit: Obama's Executive Amnesty will disproportionately harm blacks, the one voting block that has been most devoted to him. Katie Kieffer makes that point on Townhall, here. It makes me quite sad. Obama has taken advantage of the loyalty of blacks to beef up another part of his coalition, Hispanics, that vote for Democrats but in less reliable numbers.
Those poor blacks who are struggling for employment now will find their prospects changed, alright, thanks to Obama. He has taken these voters for granted for too long.
That's why Sen. Rand Paul's outreach efforts -- echoed locally here by Jefferson County GOP Chair Nate Haney -- offers a real alternative to voters who Democrats have failed.
