As an Alabama native, I have voted for him every time. He was once considered on the short list for a SCOTUS nomination, but those days passed him by. He does frustrate me at times, though. I e-mailed him in early-2009 encouraging him to block Eric Holder's nomination to the AG. He replied that the POTUS had the right to nominate whoever he saw fit. So, he let EH get through the Senate committee for a vote. He did end up voting against EH, but by then the damage was done ... and that was that.
I e-mailed both Sessions and Shelby (our other GOP Senator) last week imploring them to fight this bill. They both voted NO to keep it from coming out of the Senate committee. Alas, too many RINOs and now it is on the Senate floor.
This article is evidence not of impending success by the Amnestistas, but of coming failure. Here's the money quote and it sounds like desperation:
The Republican drubbing in November among Latino voters, the shifting demographics of the American electorate, and the rise of telegenic champions of the immigration changes like Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, both Republicans, have changed the stakes as well as the political equation.
If we were liberals, this tactic would work.
