|All According to Plan|
I would like to hear a speech from my president in times like this that would instill calm and confidence rather than having to watch him hold his breath after vowing to "not be your friend anymore". And it would certainly be refreshing to see his party willing to scold him for misbehaving rather than enable such behavior. What we're getting instead is a dramatization of "that" parent (Democrats) -- in line at the supermarket, for example -- trying to appease her berserk toddler (Obama) rather than giving him a good swat on the behind and warning him to behave himself.

You know things are bad when illegal aliens -- who are here to make a better life for themselves in spite of the dangers of getting here and the constant prospect of being deported -- begin heading home in droves because it's actually better in Mexico.
On July 28th, The Sacramento Bee reported that as the Mexican economy improves -- and as ours stagnates -- "unauthorized immigrants" have been fleeing the state of California in high numbers. Since 2008, the paper estimates that as many as 300,000 illegals have returned to Mexico. As The Drudge Report stated, they're going back to seek the American Dream. How ironic.
It's little wonder that this is happening. Our unemployment rate stands at 9.4 percent, while the unemployment rate in Mexico is at 4.9 percent. (They didn't even have a "stimulus plan"!) What's more, Mexico's economy is growing at between 4 and 5 percent, making it much more inviting for people to return. Compare that with the U.S. growth rate of 1.3 percent, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Americans sneaking into Mexico to find work.
Obama's attention to border security has been dismal at best, but his plan to destroy America has worked wonders where illegal immigration is concerned. Sphere: Related Content
