The only bill of the 4 that is worth running nationally re: immigration is 2011 HB 469. Yes, it didn't get the press, but it was the one supported by almost all on both sides. Run with that nationally and you have an answer.

The Utah Pilot Sponsored Resident Immigrant Program Act.

OK, the SCOTUS majority opinion isn't going to let Utah run with it, unless Congress agrees.

Don't try to invent some other answer that 1/2 of us are likely not going to agree with.

Pick one that has the majority that will back it.

I have to take issue with this statement. Americans like that unemployment has gone from 10% to 6.3% in less than 4 years. Americans like that federal deficits have shrunk EVERY YEAR UNDER OBAMA, from the Bush/Cheney 1.4 billion dollars to a projected 564 million dollars in 2015. American like that we are no longer fighting a senseless war in Iraq, and are skillfully extricating our selves form Afghanistan. Americans like their 401K's doubling in the last 5 years. Americans like having no restrictions on pre-existing conditions for health insurance, and like all the the major components of the ACA, but HATE it when you call it Obamacare.

Conservatives have accomplished zero legislatively, but they have brilliantly used a steady, droning, drum beat of venom to smear President Obama personally, but don't say that most Americans don't like his policies.

Huntsman a conservative? I'm not sure where Pigs got that information from.

This opinion column is very weak sauce. Any objective reading of public opinion reveals Mitt Romney to be toast. Larry Elder, the outlier cited as an expert on blacks, has been a minstrel show act for Right Wing white people for decades and has no credibility beyond that demographic. John Boehner's hands are tied regarding immigration because he knows the Republican base will erupt if anything meaningful is done in regard to the issue. And, certainly, President Obama deserves credit for successful policies the columnists refuse to give him.

Pres. Obama deserves credit for being the worst president the US has had during the last 50 years. His "if Congress doesn't act I will" statements and attitude doesn't even fit a president, but a king. Why the American voters gave him 4 more years is beyond reason.

History will note President Obama as being the one President who endured more racial attacks and harassment then any former President in History.

If all you old LDS white guys are mad about this statement it will prove my point.

Old conservatives anger easily.
