    "Unless you're a native American, you came from someplace else"

    umm...... somebody want to tell obama that "native" Americans also came from someplace else?

    He's just playing to his dumbed down base. Yes, even the Founders were from 'someplace else'.

    And those that followed built, fortified fought & died for this country- the one you like to trash so much.

    Anyone who thinks this man is intelligent is beyond help.

    Okay, first....huh? Second, President Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetero should have a familiarity with this 'Unless You're a Native American, You Came From Someplace Else' on many ironic levels....
    Third....does he no know the definition of natural born citizen? Which I am and my parents are, and grandparents and great grandparents....what about his....less than American family tree?
    After this speech I would say immigration reform should be held off indefinitely....until....the non-natural born citizen in the office of the president is finished with his term....after all I think his interest in this is most definitely a conflict of interest....

    WOW did Obama fall asleep through History class? Is is proclaiming that "Native Americans" evolved in the Americas independent of other humans? There were no primates here prior to humans arrival, so that's definitely not scientifically feasable. Plus that would make them a separate species and not human! WOW! Or is he subscribing to the Native American's version of "Creationism" and saying they just magically appeared here? Doesn't that go against the Socialist's war on religion?

    Native American's immigrated here during the last ice ages when there was a land bridge due to lower ocean levels. They fought each other for thousands of years over the same lands, taking from each other over and over again. To suggest that they were a homogenous group and collectively still are, is pure racism!!!!!!!!!! I take major offense to that being of Arapaho decent! That's like saying all "brown" people are one race because they have similar pigmentation! RACIST!

    But what should people expect from the party of racists, aka Democrats, aka the Modern KKK.

    Good point. I seem to remember this whole "frozen land bridge" over the Bering Straight that people walked across? Evolution? I guess it's all blah from some pol.

    He fell asleep through all his classes. Classic example of pseudo-intellectualism. But, hey !!! He fist bumps his wife and has a cool Blackberry! That's all today's voters care about.

    Although you are correct in this nature, Native Americans are "native" because they are the first to immigrate to the US, which makes them the origins of the US.

    Be offended all you want and there really isn't any reason to be offended unless you are anti Obama. The only original population on the US is the native Americans. They were the first here and thats all that matters. Being the first here allows you to make the standards. EVeryone else immigrated here.

    "A lot of folks forget that most of us used to be them."

    No, Mr. President, MY family came here legally. These people didn't, but you don't see the difference. What planet are you from?

    I just can't get over how this president time and time again wants to reward people for breaking the law. I came from this country, I was born and raised here, as were my father and grandfather and his father before him. I can't say the same about obama.

    His mother is from Kansas, I'm sure he can go back a ways in his family tree and find plenty of grandfathers that have been here just as long as yours.

    It does not matter if you are 100 percent of anything.Everybody has rule for their country.You do not get to wander in and out and demand citizenship.That may have been how it was done years ago,but not now. Which is why I am registering as an Independent. It's time to send a message to the democrats.

    Sorry, adding 11 million mostly young and healthy immigrants to the mix will actually improve the fiscal situation with regard to the ACA.

    again obama shows full support for all the crimes illegal aliens have done that would have a citizen in prison.

    just a stealth way of opening the borders
  • #68

    As I said on another post yesterday. I see no difference between criminal trespass on to someones property, and illegally crossing the border.
    Now I use to take trespassers to the jail house but illegals, if they come forward, their punishment is a chance to live in America, wow?
    Thats like someone trespassing on your property and the law saying sure you can stay.
    What's next? Someone breaks in my home and the law is going to say they get to live in my home.
    Just another reason not to ban any firearms.
    (That last line was sort of a joke, don't get your panties in a bunch.)

    Funny because I have A Founding father as a 6th great grandfather. All i Saw this as was a desperate attempt to get people to agree with him. Anybody that was born here is a NATIVE AMERICAN. Skin color hasn't got a damn thing to do with it.

    Well, how many generations have to be an....wait....'Unless You're a Native American, You Came From Someplace Else' it just hit me....this means since he obviously does NOT consider himself native american {which this quote of his has just a tinge of racism in it} how then could he qualify to be a natural born citizen as defined in the Constitution and by many court cases?

    Why hasn't anyone pointed out a lot of this problem should be blamed on the Mexican government?

    @Republican5001 after watching the US spend billions rebuilding countries we fought wars with, Maybe Mexico should declare war on us.

    Why hasn't anyone pointed out Mexican land was stolen through murderous terrorism of the u.s. and mexicans has every right to be here, especially since they are doing so non-violently...

    @PoliticalSpice the real story is the Comanche owned the better part of Texas. The Mexican government begged Americans to settle in Tajes to fight the Comanche. But you avoided the truth that the Mexican government has failed its citizens. There is no reason Mexico can't be a very wealthy country.

    Where are those who question Obama being born in Hawaii? Politix gave you some good obama quotes and even italicized "us" for you.
    "A lot of folks forget that most of US used to be them" and "Somebody brought you"

    So birth folks is it a Freudian slip, honesty or just trying to say and project I am one of you to gain political support?

    @Starsplash

    Native:

    Noun

    A person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not.

    I am very much native, and I am an American. I guess I am a Native American!

    @Yank A native American would never call themselves Yank.

    Yes, congragulations. You looked up native in the dictionary and thats what it gave you. But thats not what it means in this context.

    Why hasn't anyone pointed out a lot of this problem should be blamed on the employers that hire these people?
  • #29

    @Neo_NtheMatrix I say fine American employers who are hiring illegal's illegality helping create this immigration problem in the first place (no jobs = no illegal immigration = this discussion does not happen).
  • #40
    !
    @AceLuby - You said it's the employers hiring illegal immigrants. I say let's fine those very employers. How much? Until it hurts and they won't do it again. If that's not sufficient deterrent then we prosecute them in criminal court. Are you with that?
  • #56

    @Neo_NtheMatrix As it stands the fines for hiring illegals are not sufficient to equal the savings made by hiring them. You make that fine 1 million a day for every day it can be proven than an illegal worked for a corporation and you watch the corporations get with the plan.

    Hey Neo, good question! I was worried that wasn't a good choice of phrase... It's kind of an antiquated expression meaning "it rubbed me the wrong way." I've changed the poll option now to be more comprehensible :)

    He should know since he is a native African who was born in Africa and not Hawaii! Now he is trying to circumvent the law to gain votes for the democrats. Instead of enforcing the law written by and voted in by Americans he is bowing to the criminals that have violated our borders. Why not let the Lybians, Syrians, and North Koreans just infiltrate and set up house. He's a traitor!

    I was born here; that makes me a native American. Is this 'came from somewhere else' crap akin to 'you didn't build that'? But guess what Obama? When my family did immigrat here, they did so LEGALLY. Big difference. Your analogy is flawed, as usual.
  • #111

    No I was born and raised in United States. Now I know both sets of grandparents were born in this country. In his case he was born In kenna. The question is did he enter the country legal or illegal.
  • #127

    You are missing the point.

    Unless your ancestors are native American, you immigrated here. Thats what Obama is trying to say.
  • #133
    !
    @Starsplash half of me is native but as I stated before I was bornin the States. Never left the country. My mother and father born in this country. Both sets of grand parents born in this country. So we did not immigrant from anywhere. Can't say that about the President he is from Kenna.
  • #137

    @scotta Obama never said hes native to the US. Thats not the point hes making, so I dont know why you are bringing that up. We and even he knows that.

    Let me say this again. Unless you are native American, which I doubt you are (If you are... then cool.), you are not native to North America. Thats the true definition of native in this sense. Your ancestors are probably from Europe/Asia blah blah blah (key word somewhere else) and they came here. Thats means you immigrated to the US. Everything else doesn't matter.

    @Starsplash sorry this the same stupid way of thinking as "You did not build your business" b.s. So sorry I did not immigrate to this country.
  • #148
    !
    @scotta No its not stupid. You had to get resources from other people and places in order to make ur business. You depend on other people's labor because you hire them. Yes you own ur own business and manage it, but you depend on other people to make ur business a reality and make it work. So ya... you did not build your business.

    It's good to see an immigrant from Africa understands the nuances of the United States immigration laws. May peace be upon him...
