Sputnik Moment: 2011 State of the Union

Barack Obama renews his call for amnesty in the 2011 State of the Union address

District of Corruption

Barack Obama succeeded in putting me to sleep tonight with his ideological boilerplate.

I had planned to watch the State of the Union to catch his remarks on immigration. By the time I woke up, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin was giving the Republican response. I had to search the internet to find a transcript of the speech.

The Great Triangulator said:

Now, I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration. I am prepared to work with Republicans and Democrats to protect our borders, enforce our laws and address the millions of undocumented workers who are now living in the shadows. I know that debate will be difficult and take time. But tonight, let’s agree to make that effort. And let’s stop expelling talented, responsible young people who can staff our research labs, start new businesses, and further enrich this nation.

If you have heard it once, you have heard it a million times: Barack Obama’s solution to illegal immigration is to pretend to support border security until Congress passes the amnesty he desires.

Then it will be time to go back to the long established practice of refusing to enforce our immigration laws.

Nearly half a million illegal aliens rallied on the National Mall last year. Such is the Obama administration’s commitment to border security. He won’t deport illegal aliens when they show up and wave Mexican flags on his own doorstep.

The Immigration Act of 1996 already prohibits granting in-state tuition to illegal aliens. It is already a crime to be in the United States illegally. The elites who control the federal government flatly refuse to enforce our immigration laws.

The biggest lie in this whole speech is the idea that anchor babies are “talented, responsible young people” who will “further enrich this nation” and “staff our research labs.” They will contribute to “this generation’s Sputnik moment.”

This is something straight out of a Hollywood movie.

California, which is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, has one of the worst public education systems in America. Average test scores in California are below the national average because of illegal immigration.

Barack Obama reminded me of Leonid Brezhnev tonight droning on about the “scientific-technological revolution.”

A decade later, the bankrupt Soviet Union collapsed into over a dozen republics. If we are depending upon the non-White anchor baby geniuses of the future to deliver our next “Sputnik moment,” America will share a similar fate.

One Response to Sputnik Moment: 2011 State of the Union

  1. One Time Commenter says:

    he mothballed NASA last year just to make people of color ‘feel good’ about their contributions to high science?

    I don’t think that’s why he mothballed NASA. Have you looked at the NASA budget? While our grandparents remember watching TV of our astronauts playing golf on the moon, driving around in moonbuggies and the like – since Nixon was run out of office, NASA has never been above low earth orbit (LEO) – and has no plans to.

    Bill Clinton, in his autobiography, “My Life” said:

    Just a month before, Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong had left their colleague, Michael Collins, aboard spaceship Columbia and walked on the moon, beating by five months President Kennedy’s goal of putting a man on the moon before the decade was out. The old carpenter asked me if I really believed it happened. I said sure, I saw it on television. He disagreed; he said that he didn’t believe it for a minute, that “them television fellers” could make things look real that weren’t. Back then, I thought he was a crank. During my eight years in Washington, I saw some things on TV that made me wonder if he wasn’t ahead of his time.

    In my opinion, this is a very important question to ask: if a Republican wins the Presidency, and the GOP is able to take Congress in the near future – will they start up the NASA Moon Landing Program again?

    Will the GOP/NASA crowd make us proud again, like they did under Nixon?

    It’s a very important question to ask. But I don’t think “people of color” have anything to do with it.

    Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 KJV
