Interesting article from my old hometown newspaper, the San Diego Union-Tribune from last month.
As it turns out, Mr. Awesome was giving a speech and subsequent Q-and-A session at “San Diego’s annual L’Attitude conference at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. The event spotlights Latino business, innovation and consumers.”
But here’s the Obama quote that really caught my eye (emphasis mine);
“Right now, the biggest fuel behind the Republican agenda is related to immigration and the fear that somehow America’s character is going to be changed if, people of darker shades, there are too many of them here.”
Hmm… so, here’s a guy whose only constant in his childhood was three white people (Mom, Grandma and Grandpa), now he’s going to warn us of those evil, evil Republicans.
Interestingly enough, in a recent interview on the Todd Starnes radio show, Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) also had quite the notable quotable (emphasis mine);
“Legal migration strengthens the country. When people go through a process, and they respect the laws and the rules of the country they want to become a part of. But allowing them to cut the line so those good people.
By the way, there are 3.8 million people across the world who didn’t come to this country legally, 95% of them are people of color. So, when the left injects race into this argument it’s absurd and ludicrous and we need to know our facts and we can throw it back in the face and, you know, tell people the truth.”
But in all fairness to him, Barack Obama never was one known to ever tell the truth.
