"Anybody who wants to make a name for themselves"

In a recent interview, President Obama said,
"But what we can't do is demagogue the issue, and what we can't do is allow a patchwork of 50 different states, or cities or localities, where anybody who wants to make a name for themselves suddenly says, 'I'm going to be anti-immigrant, and I'm going try to see if I can solve the problem ourself.' This is a national problem."
"A patchwork of 50 different states, or cities..."? If the President was honestly concerned about this, then why hasn't his Justice Department prosecuted the numerous cities which have thumbed their noses at federal law by declaring themselves to be "sanctuary cities."

"Who wants to make a name for themselves"!? Really? I guess that must be the only option. The governor of Arizona and the Arizona lawmakers who passed the Arizona law must all be evil, xenophobic bigots. There can be no other explanation. It is apparently just not possible--in Obamaworld--that they could be genuinely concerned about the drugs, violence and murder due to illegals pouring in from Mexico.

"Says I'm going to be anti-immigrant". Again, this must be the only explanation in Obamaworld. It is apparently just not possible that the Governor and legislature of Arizona could only be anti-illegal immigration. They must anti-all immigration.

I find President Obama's remarks to be underhanded, despicable lies. Never in my 56 years do I remember a sitting President so blatantly slandering his political opponents like this. It is unworthy of the office.

The President was right on one thing, however. This is a national problem. The problem, however, is not immigration. Thousands of people flooding into the country illegally is not an immigration problem. It is an invasion, and the President is not adequately protecting the country.
