Thanks for the link to that article. I suspected as much. Two key lessons in "Politics 101". 1. The folks screaming the loudest that they are a party's base...usually aren't. If your politicians "aren't listening to you", it is probably because you aren't the majority. 2. Congressional political races are local. You may hate Olympia Snow, Susan Collins and John McCain...but their constituents (read voters) don't. They all have among the highest job approval ratings among their own voters in the country.
I'm now watching MTP and am guessing that no one will bring up the crime, corruption and drug dealing that is at least one reason why we have so many illegal Mexicons coming this way. Their country is nothing but a third world s..t hole.
ref #84, I believe that Dowd may be playing with numbers here, and they are improperl dissing Sessions. The tone deaf Republican Majority better wake up and smell the Coffee. There is going to be a civil war over this amnesty part of this Senate Bill and you can look no farther than the McCain,Hagel,frist, trifecta for this. Most Americans that are polled do not want to seem unfair and be called racist so they lighten up their responses, but those of us out in the real world are seeing anger of gigantic proportions. I could do 15 posts just on what I have heard in the last week, and everyone has a different horror story about why there should never be Amnesty in any form. Get the damned fence built, build apartment Buildings on the Mexican side of the Border, have shuttle service back and forth,set up those fool proof ID cards,let them work here after being fully immunized, and criminal background checked,then let them go home to Mexico. Let the Mexican Government build the Schools and Hospitals right there across the Rio Grande or in Tijuana, or whatever. I don't care what Hagel,McCain,Frist say, the sleeping Giant is wide awake and very P!$$ed off, and will not stand for any form of Amnesty for illegals that bring in disease after stealing into our Country and stealing other people's identity.
