Alan Note: Even Chicago thug Rahm Emmanuel cannot stomach the tyrannical Obama style  (and that's saying a lot) and is apparently planning to  leave the White House in a few months.

Kyl: Obama told me he won’t secure the border until Congress agrees to amnesty June 20, 2010 by Allahpundit

The whole clip’s worth watching but skip ahead to three minutes in for the money bit.

Does any term of art exist to describe a revelation that’s shocking in one sense and yet not at all surprising in another? (“Kinsleyan gaffe” is in the ballpark, but that’s not quite what this is.)

Of course Obambi won’t do anything about the border until he gets some political cover from Congress on amnesty; his party wants to build a heavy Democratic majority among Latinos long-term and he’s not going to mess that up.

(Certainly not just for the safety of some Americans in Arizona, which he is suing to bolster the myth he is for Latinos and not just for himself - or other Americans at border States, which cannot even claim sovereignty over all their own territory because of Federal failure to enforce our laws.

What’s stunning is simply the fact that he’d be so candid, to a member of the opposition, no less, in admitting his dereliction of duty. Sure, he could fulfill his constitutional responsibility and try to enforce federal law — but what good will that do him politically? REmember it is all about him not "we the people"  he haughtily ignores.

 According to him, If Congress wants to see some action at the border, they need to make it worth this Obambi-thug's while. (And you thought the useful but "unlawful by our legal process"  BP deal was a “shakedown).”

Painful exit question: Isn’t this yet another example of Obama carrying on Bush’s policies? Dubya might not have been as blunt about the reason for his own poor track record on border enforcement, but let’s not kid ourselves.
