This guy ought to pack it up now & McLame sould be booed out of the next debate.
I’ll see if I can find Romney’s glowing review as well.
Folks, pay attention, please. Duncan Hunter 08
Just one more nail in his coffin. I hope it gets it all nailed up soon, and just goes away.
“it is illegal now but it’s not a crime”
There you have it. Ugh.
Romney's against it.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney also blasted the immigration agreement:
"I strongly oppose todays bill going through the Senate. It is the wrong approach. Any legislation that allows illegal immigrants to stay in the country indefinitely, as the new Z-Visa does, is a form of amnesty. That is unfair to the millions of people who have applied to legally immigrate to the U.S."

Boston, MA - Governor Mitt Romney issued the following statement on today's U.S. Senate agreement on immigration reform: "I strongly oppose today's bill going through the Senate. It is the wrong approach. Any legislation that allows illegal immigrants to stay in the country indefinitely, as the new 'Z-Visa' does, is a form of amnesty. That is unfair to the millions of people who have applied to legally immigrate to the U.S. "Today's Senate agreement falls short of the actions needed to both solve our country's illegal immigration problem and also strengthen our legal immigration system. Border security and a reliable...
By August, the race will be between Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney. With Rudy a distant third, McCain dropped out, and Hunter still clinging on to the hope of his 1% standing.
I will vote for the F'n witch before those two.
That’s now. He was singing a different not long ago. I will find it.
Of course you will argue he was talking about the 2005 McCain-Kennedy, not the identical 2007 version.
Tell me, despite the misleading headline -- these are 2006 comments by Guiliani, has Guiliani said anything specific about the current May 2007 bill?
Thanks, Rudy. You are helping us weed out the losers.
You and McCain have fun with your third party bid, cause you ain’t getting this Republican’s vote.
Must see POST 12.
Can anyone explain this to me?
I guess you missed where it says “2006” in the headline.
Romney came out against!
Anything you can be incarcerated for, if found guilty, is a crime. 6 months incarceration is the penalty in the U.S. Statutes for coming across the border illegally for the first time. The sentence can get stiffer for repeated violations. Illegal aliens are, by definition, criminals.
Hmm, according to Romney's words in a 2005 Boston Globe interview, "That's very different than amnesty, where you literally say, 'OK, everybody here gets to stay,' " Romney said in the interview. "It's saying you could work your way into becoming a legal resident of the country by working here without taking benefits and then applying and then paying a fine."
The article goes on: Romney did not specifically endorse McCain's bill, saying he had not yet formulated a full position on immigration. But he did speak approvingly of efforts by McCain and Bush to solve the nation's immigration crisis, calling them "reasonable proposals."
Seems like he was for it before he was against it. That seems to happen often with Massachusetts politicians...
Must read. Ouch
McCain AND Rudy are toast.
Too Funny! Good job!
Yup. Most are, not all.
You know that everyone keys on the first few words. The technique you used is significantly misleading -- close enough to a lie to be called a lie, imo.
The Real Rudy Giuliani:
From Human Events:
As Tom Bevan of RealClearPolitics has pointed out, Rudy is an adherent of the same approach to illegal immigration that John McCain, Ted Kennedy, George Bush, and Harry Reid have championed: "While McCain has taken heat for his support of comprehensive immigration reform, Rudy is every bit as pro-immigration as McCain - if not more so. On the O'Reilly Factor last week Giuliani argued for a "practical approach" to immigration and cited his efforts as Mayor of New York City to "regularize" illegal immigrants by providing them with access to city services like public education to "make their lives reasonable." Giuliani did say that "a tremendous amount of money should be put into the physical security" needed to stop the flow of illegal immigrants coming across the border, but his overall position on immigration is essentially indistinguishable from McCain's."
That's bad enough. But, as Michelle Malkin has revealed, under Giuliani, New York was an illegal alien sanctuary and "America's Mayor" actually sued the federal government in an effort to keep New York City employees from having to cooperate with the INS:
"When Congress enacted immigration reform laws that forbade local governments from barring employees from cooperating with the INS, Mayor Rudy Giuliani filed suit against the feds in 1997. He was rebuffed by two lower courts, which ruled that the sanctuary order amounted to special treatment for illegal aliens and were nothing more than an unlawful effort to flaunt federal enforcement efforts against illegal aliens. In January 2000, the Supreme Court rejected his appeal, but Giuliani vowed to ignore the law."
If you agree with the way that Nancy Pelosi and Company deal with illegal immigration, then you'll find the way that Rudy Giuliani tackles the issue to be right down your alley.
I can’t help it if you’re too lazy to read to the end of a sentence.
We need to send the former Mayor a half-million copies of Funk & Wagnalls.
He would have made an comedic character on Laugh In.
Hey ... once your start you can't stop, can you?
Credit where credit is do.
That’s a funny picture.
“Can anyone explain this to me?”
Only with illogical, circular logic. It’s like voting for the bill, before you vote against it.
Ask the mod to put 2006 at the beginning of the sentence if your tender sensibilities are so injured.
So be it.
If this is the case.........Rudy just lost the election.
“So the right answer is to do the things that have to be done to secure our borders, introduce new technology, require more of people in describing who they are, identify them effectively, fingerprint them or finger image them if you have to, photograph them, come up with cards for them, use the modern methods that we presently have for identifying people”
What rubbish! They talk about “securing the border” but what they want to do is leave the border porous, and rely on so-called technology and new beuracracies to find illegals after they get here. Are we supposed to believe they will do anything differently than they do now (ie: deport only a few per cent of them)? Or is it up to the “honor system” of hoping illegals come forward?
Hasta La Vista Julie Annie - take McClown with you on the way out!!!!
And don’t forget that the fine for using a social security number fraudulently is VERY steep. If we enforced those laws already on the books by going after employers, there would be more than enough in the kitty to build a secure border.
I saw the 2006 in the headline. Your critics here can read more carefully. Not much diff in the 2006 amnesty bill and the 2007 amnesty bill. (Pay $5000 to become citizens? Yeah, right!)
Julyani is in a free fall and he doesn’t even realize it.
