"No matter who you are. No matter where you can came from. No matter what you look like. No matter whether your ancestors landed here on Ellis Island or came here on slave ships or came across the Rio Grande, we are all connected. We will rise and fall together. That's the vision of America I've got, that's the idea of the heart of America," President Obama said at a fundraiser in San Francisco.

"That's the idea of the heart of our campaign," Obama added.

That filthy sob pandering to the latino vote by tacitly approving of illegal immigration. I'd like to meet him in a dark alley once his term defiling our White House is up.

He couldn't possibly be referring to the 9,000,000+ people who've immigrated here legally from Mexico, or their 100% American citizen offspring, could he?

I bet if America enacted a draft. 80% or better. American citizen offspring. Bolt for the other side of the Rio-grand. Sit back & siesta

It's a Rorschach test. You see Rio Grande, you hear illegals. I hear it, I think Mexican immigrants.

Obama's not responsible for how your ass responds to that word.

And I've been on record as saying that non-skilled immigration should be scaled back based on our current surplus labor force. So, in summation, f you.

What has the right EVER done to stop it or control it?? Less bitching about what Barry and the left have not done?

So, yes, we are all connected. That said, you live over there, and I live over here. If you want to visit my place a few months per year, thats fine, provided you get a tourist visa.

I never said it wasn't just one side. This problem in the WH is the same old stuff that has been happening for the last 30 + years. Career politicians will do that for you.

Between the cooked book of W and Barry spending freely, our children will pay for it over the course of their lives.

We all ARE connected. We are all protons, neutrons, electrons, gluons and quarks... just like all matter. Just the form and the vibrational frequency is different. Everything here was once in the heart of a supernova... and DNA has been traced linking us all back to a tribe in Africa, that learned how to track animals effectively... thus we moved out of Africa... up to central asia... down to Australia... over the Bering Strait... and into Europe... over 1000s and 1000s of years we've taken on unique genetic traits. But we are all made of the same stuff.

I believe he used came across the Rio Grande as a purposely vague phrase that could be seen by illegals and their families as being supportive without saying something that he couldn’t shrug off and say “ look you people are just reading things into it from your own insecurities". It in my opinion iti was a sneaky, measured, political ploy that most politicians would be proud of. Of course our representatives don’t exactly have much of a moral compass. Really nothing to see here.
