‘This wasn’t a political move’: David Plouffe fails miserably at spin attempts on deportation waivers, leaks

Oh, dear. White House senior adviser David Plouffe is making the rounds on almost all of the Sunday shows. He frantically tries to spin Obama’s ‘Occupy Open Borders’ plan, leaks and economic plans (or lack thereof.)

Alas, no one is buying what Plouffe is trying to sell.




Oh, our aching sides! Everyone with even just half a brain knows this was purely political: It was a power grab and an attempted vote grab, plain and simple.

Some are also wondering why Plouffe?

Bless his heart.

Nice try, Team Obama. But, a total fail once again.

    Actually I and Barack Obama agree with him. This was not political, it was criminal. According to Barry himself.

    The record was stuck like an old 33 1/3. If he said 2 US Attorneys once he repeated it a dozen times. Chris W. smacked hin around good..

      I just listened to it . I didn’t hear Wallace smack him much at all. He went on and on and on … now Juan the Obamatron is spinning!

    If it wasn’t a ‘political’ decision, then what kind was it?
    In a seemingly endless recession with unemployment over 8.2% (with the real number likely closer to 14 – 15%), throwing 800K MORE workers into the workforce to compete for already scarce jobs, well it sure as hell couldn’t have been an ‘economic’ decision.

      Heard that the number is closer to 2 to 3 MILLION ILLEGALS in the work force … I suspect the number will continue to increase!

    It’s almost like the Obama Admin is trying to throw the election by putting people like this out there to do their bidding.

      This is what the other side thinks is GOOD. Their judgment has never been so great, now it’s just abysmal.

    I’m watching FNS, Plouffe can’t keep a straight face, either. He’s cracking a smile during the entire interview with Chris Wallace.

    Most likely those who are part of the 800,000 young working age illegals only have access to entry level jobs. They will be in competition with those recently graduated from high school. Even those who are going to college may need a partime job. As with the Dream Act, which took college positions away from citizens, this action pits illegals against American citizens looking for work.

    Gotta love when Chris challenged Plouffe on the “foreign money” Romney gets…

    Fail…Chris didn’t let him try that crap with him. He straightened him out before cutting for the commercials.

    This is going to blow up in Barry’s face like a firecracker in a cigar.

    Idk, the Plouffee guy says The Dream Act Executive Order “wasn’t political and it was within our boundaries to do”, but something smells fishy. Oh, I remember that smell. It’s a pile of rotting Executive Orders — 900 of them in 3 1/2 years.
