Default Massive personal scandal

Jon Kyl will be involved in a massive scandal and smear campaign in 3...2...1....

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010...ation-package/

President Obama is refusing to secure the border until Congress reaches a breakthrough on comprehensive immigration reform, Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl said at a recent town hall meeting.

The No. 2 Senate Republican, in a video clip posted on YouTube showing the senator speaking to a local Tea Party crowd on Friday, said the president told him during a one-on-one meeting in the Oval Office that he was concerned he wouldn't win GOP support on immigration legislation if he took care of border security first.

"The problem is, he said, if we secure the border, then you all won't have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform," Kyl said, as the crowd in the room gasped loudly. "In other words, they're holding it hostage."

The White House denied the claim on Monday. Spokesman Bill Burton and Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer both said Kyl "knows" Obama did not make that comment to him in their meeting.

"The president didn't say that and Senator Kyl knows it," Pfeiffer said in a written statement. "There are more resources dedicated toward border security today than ever before, but, as the president has made clear, truly securing the border will require a comprehensive solution to our broken immigration system."

Burton repeated the claim at the press briefing Monday afternoon.

But Kyl's office stood by the senator's account. Kyl spokesman Ryan Patmintra said, "There were two people in that meeting, and Dan Pfieffer was not one of them." He said Pfeiffer's call for comprehensive immigration legislation "only confirms" Kyl's story.

While Obama has pledged to send an influx of National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, Kyl said in the clip that the president made clear to him that border security is just a political tool in the broader goal of passing an immigration package through Congress.

Kyl said he was "not so sure" the president's concern about GOP support was legitimate, but that regardless, the administration has an "obligation" to secure the border.

"They don't want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with comprehensive immigration reform," Kyl said. "They frankly don't want to do it. They want to get something in return for doing their duty."
I expect the first commercials will be about how Kyl misused campaign funds, it'll take a week or two before we get to the part where he had sex with little boys and lights dogs on fire.

Well, that seems to be Obama's modus operandi. He's using the oil spill to draw attention to his cap-and-trade energy policy, so it only makes sense that he would wait for a disaster on the border to cram his immigration plan down our throats. As much as the liberals might criticize it when the other side does it, it's fucking fear mongering, plain and simple. Sure, an energy bill looks great when we're dealing with the biggest ecological disaster in decades, but that's underhanded politics. Same with immigration. He's going to let the situation there get so bad, the people will vote for any shit legislation, as long as it secures the border. And before you start, bumbler, I don't give a fuck who else has done it, it's always been wrong.

Actually, this implies that Obama would do something to secure the border once reform is passed. None of the government really wants to see any actual enforcement or change on the "undocumented" situation.
