Some of the same people who see Newt as extreme, grandiose, harsh, zany...criticize him for not being in favor of draconian measures to deal with illegal aliens.
One size does not fit all. Trying to make it so would be catastrophic, and we’d lose face trying to put it into practice against a constant parade of pathetic victims trotted out daily by the Dems, while the media hammered us. Newt’s plan is sensible and feasible, and less imperfect than the alternatives. Makes the best of a bad business, as the old timers used to say.
I realize that’s unpopular thinking around here, so for the record I do understand all parts of “illegal.”
Actually, in this thread, conservatives seem more to be complaining that Gingrich is calling them inhumane, not that he disagrees with them.
Gingrich may have a rational plan. That doesn’t mean he has to attack those who disagree with him as being inhumane, or call them “anti-immigrant” as if they don’t like any foreigners.
