...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...
This week, it seemed that most of America’s (and much of the world’s) press was covering the antics of an airline flight attendant as the main headline story. Not to feel left out, I thought I would mention it. That’s about as far as I’m going with it, a mere mention. There are probably hundreds of people every week that quit their jobs and walk out, even in these times of high unemployment, although perhaps in not such a spectacular fashion.
There must be many a Democrat that wished there was an escape chute to bail out from the Capitol. Grab a couple of beers, pull the lever and slide into the land of Independents. Probably an appealing idea, except to those leftist ideologues who really believe that their policies are working.
Untruths take three forms amongst Democrats. Firstly, the ‘save your own hide’ type, as in “I did not have sex with that woman”. Secondly, the ‘convince yourself it’s true’ variety, the sort often uttered by the socialists that have been brainwashed into believing the most irrational and unsubstantiated agendas. The third is the ‘apologetic’, as in “I’m sorry if I was misunderstood, what I really meant was…”
A classic example of the latter was Harry Reid, who later explained that his statement, expressing disbelief that Hispanics could vote Republican, was worded that way as his audience were Hispanic. It’s strange that one who was quick enough to point out the possible ethnic profiling result (which was a total fabrication by the Democrats and prohibited in the bill) of Arizona’s illegal immigration law, could himself label all Hispanic Americans as supporters of uncontrolled immigration. read more »
