Now our President is trying to oliticize something that is supposed to be apolitical. By handing the census over to a political hack such as Emanuel ( I would have said the same about Rove) is wrong and not enumerated in the Constitution of the United States. This is why he is doing it:
Critics note that the method of counting can skew the census. Democrats have long advocated using mathematical estimates, a practice known as "sampling," to count urban residents and immigrants. Republicans say the Constitution requires a physical head count, which entails going door-to-door.
And this is how it should be done:
The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.
NOT the purvey of the legislative branch, the above is from article 1, section 2, meaning the legislative branch is in charge of the census. This is incredible, absolutely incredible, and must be stopped.
