If you didn’t see this coming, you had your eyes closed on purpose.

President Obama said this week that his health care plan won’t cover illegal immigrants, but argued that’s all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage.

It’s just one more step to firm up the democrat’s power through giving to the poor.  The man who takes from Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

Mr. Obama added, “If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all.”

Ms. Pelosi should not be surprised at the harsh rhetoric.

“It is ironic that the president told the American people that illegal immigrants should not be covered by the health care bill, but now just days later he’s talking about letting them in the back door,” said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee.

That isn’t even close to irony.  Whatever else you can say about Rep. Smith, you can definitively say he could not give the correct definition of irony if his life depended on it.  When I become king, those who use the word and cannot define it will be fed to wild pigs.

Try not eating like an animal?  Maybe that would help?
