Grab your “what if a Republican had said that?” file, because we have a red hot entry. While touring California begging for money, and trying to save the Senate from the hands of we nefarious conservatives, President Obama made what some might call a racist statement about immigrants. Let’s go to the tape!
So how does that work? Do people born in America have different faces from those not born in America? Or could he be talking about their skin color? But that would mean that only some colors of people are native-born Americans! Wait a minute …

Obama said he can spot immigrants just by looking at their faces. I guess it's like a new kind of 6th sense.

Would any other politician get a pass for saying you can spot immigrants just by looking at their faces? http://t.co/PWUjlxIhxd

Klingons again? @rickklein Obama: "just looking at faces, I could tell there were some folks who are here not because they were born here."

@rickklein So he profiles, where's Holder with his lawsuit?

Well darn it — stay on course on immigration reform, Mr. President! For pete’s sake, don’t let anything distract you from distracting the country from the Obamacare debacle.
