I just wonder where all the outraged border-bots were in November of 2006 when it was time to support the courageous Republicans in the House of Representatives who actually fought the good fight on immigration reform? I remember a number of Freepers in particular who were adamant about staying home to “send a message to the GOP”.

Now you fault the spinless moderates in the GOP for caving when you are DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE for the fact that we have less GOP conservatives in the House and the Senate than we had before the election?

Pathetic.

We were working for and supporting the anti-illegal Republicans, despite the efforts of the RNC to marginalize them. This outrageous amnesty is the direct result of President Bush's determination to force it on us. The RNC, headed by Bush's choice, Mel Martinez, loves this bill.

Your attempt to fault conservatives for this debacle is laughable.

I suppose you have numbers to support this claim that conservatives staying home cost us congress? As opposed to swing voters that had been going Republican going democrat this time?
