...that was then
As you know, Harry Reid has spent the bulk of his time in the Senate, especially as Democrat leader, pandering to the pro-amnesty crowd and generally being unhelpful to conservative attempts to get illegal immigration under control.
Recently some Republicans have begun to openly talk about the need to end "birthright citizenship", (the process whereby ANYBODY born in this country - whether to legal or ILLEGAL parents), automaticallly becomes a citizen. And, of course, those Republicans have been roundly criticized for it, with Reid himself recently went so far as to say that he couldn't see how any Hispanic could support the Republican Party.
Well, well, well. How times have changed...
Now that's consistency for you...

One of the latest from one of America's best editorial cartoonists, Robert Ariail. A nice visual of how Democrats are reacting to Obama on the campaign trail...which I think we can safely say has a good bit to do with his current job approval, (about 43%).
If eighteen months ago someone asked you to write a political plan more likely to rile up the American people and throw them into the arms of the Republican Party, it’s hard to imagine anything that would be more successful than what the Democrats have done over the past year and a half. Not to mention what they plan to do.
Between ObamaCare, the stimulus, civil rights for terrorists and suing Arizona for trying to control its illegal immigration problem, they have been pushing voters to the GOP with both hands. But in just a few months comes the coup de grace: a massive tax increase – right in the middle of a recession.
Back at the beginning of the decade when Bush and the Republicans were pushing for tax cuts Democrats instinctively fought the idea, (it’s unnatural to them). While they couldn’t stop the tax cuts entirely, they did have enough clout to insist upon a sunset provision, and as of right now those cuts will expire on December 31st. read more »
Obama's mouth is writing checks his arse can't cash. This statement isn't about money. It is about Mr. Mouthy, his ego, and his grandstanding rhetoric running off at the mouth with not enough stance to back his crap up.
First he attacks individuals, i.e.: Joe The Plumber, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, etc. Then he goes on attack of a news media organization (Fox News Channel) for not bowing down and endorsing his lying rhetoric. Next he attacks the auto industry, taking them over and firing their CEO (GM). Then he attacks a whole industry giving himself the authority to regulate pay in the private sector. Now he wants to take on a State. Specifically, the Great State of Arizona. Be careful Obozo, you are about to bite off more than you can chew.
Arizona's new immigration law is the target of Obozo and his leftist Democrat Socialist Party (DSA). Since it is governments failure to protect our borders those States effected must take up the slack. This is what Arizona has done with a very well crafted piece of legislation that will withstand judicial review. And because Gov. Brewer and the legislature in Arizona stepped up to their responsibility in making its citizens more secure The State of Arizona is under attack by the Obozo administration, the DSA.
It is his intent to strip States of their 10th Amendment Rights. Yep, now we are all Tenthers. Which is an attack on all Americans. Several States are submitting similar legislation as we speak. Good! Since those who swore an Oath to protect and defend our country at the federal level have blatantly ignored their Oath and failed to protect the citizens of the United States.
Now, Obozo faces his biggest opposition yet. When you take on the several States of the United States you have a fight on your hands. We have been down this road before and, apparently, will go down this road again as a nation against a tyrannical regime. When you take on the several States you take on the American people. Obozo may or may not realize this. I don't think he does.
When a State stands up for its citizens those citizens will stand behind their State. That wields a lot of power for a State. And when you have several States standing together those are insurmountable odds for a federal regime. We, the American people, will stand up even more when we know we have the support and allegiance of our State officials.
Obozo cannot combat that simple fact without jumping held long into a situation that will spell disaster for his regime. Unfortuantely, for him, he is too stupid, arrogant, immature and narcissistic to see his own future. We are not the Jews of Germany. We are not the Russians under Stalin. We are not the Chinese under Mao Tse Tung. We are AMERICANS!
As Americans we have a 233 year history of standing up to and defeating tyranny. We are strong and proud and our beliefs are firmly implanted in the tenets of the Constitution as it was written by our founding fathers. We will not go quietly in the dark of night, but will stand shoulder to shoulder and fight for our Rights, our country, and our future. Obozo doesn't understand this concept and will bite off more than he can chew. read more »
