Republicans support a path to citizenship except when Obama supports it

If President Obama wants immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship for undocumented workers, he may not want to mention it at all in tonight’s State of the Union speech, a new Washington Post poll suggests.

Seven in 10 people in the survey said they would support a path to citizenship, including 60 percent of Republicans. But when the same question was asked of a separate sample of respondents, this time with Obama’s name attached to it, support dropped to 59 percent overall and just 39 percent among Republicans.

1. Republicans support a path to citizenship except when Obama supports it

2. To detect rascism in a Republican wait for the phrase "It has nothing to do with him being Black"

This occurs 100% of the time when the direct subject is Barak Obama. When confronted that you do consider them to be rascist, denial of rascism increases. I have used this tactic several times just to lure them out of their hole after scaring them back into their non rascist Obama retreat say this with a straight face; "Yeah Obama really favors African Americans". After that point you have got them and in my case at least since I am white, they will say what they really feel. My suspicion is that that this will work on any Obama hating Republican and could be used to lure them out in the open by anyone White, Hispanic, Asian, Native American and should work if you are African American. The more you hint that you may disagree with Obama the more comfortable they become and at ease to express their true selves. In my case the Obama postcard on my refrigerator may be a serious put off I intend to take it off next time just for fun.

4. Lending credence to my long-maintained idea

that if Barack Obama mentioned how much he loves breathing oxygen, every teabagging moron in the country would kill themselves trying to breathe only helium or hydrogen because "AIN'T GONNA SHARE NO BREATHIN' AIR WITH THAT LOUSY NIGRA."
