The politicians cared more about their re-election than they did this bill.
That should be a lesson for the future, politicians can be manipulated by the people if you know how to strike.
I draw a clear distinction between politicians (in it for re-election and money) and activists (like Obama) who will 'press forward', public be damned.
Tea Party was just a portion of the outrage.
Wow. I thought the Tea Party was a spent round?
AxleShaft seems to be flailing at Straw men.
Didn’t AxleShaft eat dog? Uh...no I guess it was crow.
“A lot of Republicans in Congress want to cooperate, they know better, “
Yeah, like Dick Luger. Hopefully he’ll be in forced retirement a week from today.
Keep yapping Axledip and you will alienate even more people from the Lie and Blame campaign. Reign of terror? do they even comprehend how stupid that sounds outside of their bubble?
The McCain/Kennedy bill, reflected the folly that George Bush articulated in his 2006 address on the subject. Here are his words, and my response: Answer To President Bush on Immigration. Which of us, do you think had the better argument?
Maybe the unions are quietly working to stop amnesty behind the scenes. The unions can say one thing in public and say something different to thier stooges in congress privately. The rank and file union members know that illegals drive down wages. The congressional black caucasians also know that illegals hurt Holder’s peoples’ wages. 0bama and the democrats could have rammed amnesty through congress in 2009 but they chose not to do it.
Hey Axelgrease!!! America doesn’t need “immigration reform”. We need you bastards to do the flippin’ jobs we’re paying you to do and secure the freakin’ borders! It’s not rocket science JACKASS!!!
Can anyone point me to a poll showing that “immigration reform” is one of the top issues for Americans? I’d settle for one that shows “immigration reform” being on the voters’ radar screen.
reign of terror= Freedom of Speech?
You know they are losing because they are just making Sh!t up. Every attack made by the Obama campaign is rooted in complete lies or falsified statistics. They have nothing to run on. Nothing.
As said on Rush a few weeks ago, the Obama campaign’s entire strategy is to tell lies in hopes that a majority of voters are stupid enough to believe them.
Where’s the link?
Immigration Reform is code for “amnesty”.
The propaganda here is the use of the word “reform”. “Reform” means to change things to make them better. The Tea Party did not block reform because reform of immigration law was never proposed. Nothing that was proposed was going to make the immigration system better.
McCain-Kennedy was under Bush in 2007. Obama could have passed CIR with the Dems overwhelming control over Congress the same way they passed Obamacare without a single Rep vote. Axelrod is full of sh#t.
The politicans of GOPe also have seen those terrible Tea party people organize to bring down some rinos, too. They are not going to get away with screwing the Nation without damage. They know it.
They know they can’t ram-rod through liberals at the State level like they did with Romney. McLame would be in Arizona rather than in the Senate had not Palin’s Tea Party people supported him. He had a close brush with his support of illegal immigration during that election.
I’d like to see Axelrod get hit by a bus. He’s a total piece of scum.
