    Obama claims everyone should receive a college education, no matter the cost. Sounds good for a utopian society. It could contribute to a new level of competitiveness and new skills and research that one cannot imagine. But, again, let's step back into reality. Who is picking up the tab? Would everyone pay for this through greater taxes? Our guess would be yes.

    On the topic of illegal immigration, the administrations of both parties have been too permissive regarding border security and employer sanctions over the past 30 years. The president wants to initiate a path to citizenship for those illegal immigrants who want to attend college. If there is to be immigration "reform," however, students here illegally must go back to the home country and initiate a legal process and then return with a legal visa in order to continue their education. Rewarding law-breaking with citizenship is not the right answer.

    Obama and the administration issued more than 3 million work visas to new immigrants and other foreign workers (more than half of them permanent).

    I'm glad Jan Brewer pointed her finger in his face on tarmac.

    I still say deport all the illegals.

    That's my truthful views.

    'But the Republican governor says the Democratic president showed disrespect for her by abruptly ending their conversation.' - Article

    So, she has 'respect' for the office of the President...

    but the second he has to go to actually RUN this country...

    she can 'use her hands' to talk to him?

    Did she suddenly loose her voice?

    That's some nerve!

    Brewer, has had example, after example of being dis-respectful.

    That sometimes, factually cost human lives:

    'Two Arizona Medicaid recipients denied potentially life-saving organ transplants have died...' - article

    ...that the state's GOP governor, Jan Brewer, and GOP-led legislature said they could no longer afford.'

    Would the good Gov. like it, if the President of the United States talked to her...

    instead of address another terrorist attack?
