On this one, I am with you. One does not solidify a party by taking time out to go against the top dog in order to gain conservative support. I am against illegal immigrants getting anything but sent home, but one must use decorum when talking about the President or the President's plan.
Perhaps more time should have been used for attacking the wacked out liberal and not splitting the party.
P.S. How exactly does Howard overcome the S.F. Dems (the recall LOST in S.F.) and their undying support for Boxer? Just wondering...

I don't think you should be agreeing with Fair unless you were there or until you watch the footage. The strongest attacks made by Tancredo and Kaloogian were on Vincente Fox, Barbara Boxer and in side notes, Gavin Newsome.
There's a big difference between attacking an amnesty plan and attacking a person.
Fair Opinion since Day 1 has been outraged that the base of the Republican party is upset about the amnesty plan.
He/she does not recognize that the political miscalculation being made here is not Kaloogian for standing up for his principles he's held all his life, or for that matter the ideology that Republicans espouse, but that it is the President's advisors who told him 'yeah, support the Vincente Fox plan, that'll win you votes."
It won't - it will just cause strain between him and his conservative base. He needs them motivated and energize. Attacking Republican principles is not the way to do that.

Decorum has a tendency to get trampled after watching the two beltway parties stand in treasonous stone silence for 25 years, while our country has been literally over run with multiple millions of people pouring in illegally.
It's beyond polite chat over tea, and business as usual, political decorum..If this nationwide massive lawlessness is not stopped in the near future, terms like polite political decorum, will be a relic of the past along with the well entrenched, two beltway parties in DC.

So in other words equate it with the clitonites supporting all their president did although we know this policy is wrong? When will people get the difference between being angry about an issue, ah nevermind, what's the use?
