Okay, maybe that wasnt the best metaphor, but he fumbled an important opportunity. The problem with the presidents amnesty decree is not that it makes it more difficult to reach that long-term solution because an executive order is, of course, just a short-term matter it can be reversed by subsequent presidents. The problem is that its u-n-c-o-n-s-t-i-t-u-t-i-o-n-a-l. You would expect Allen West and Steve King to be forceful in denouncing this usurpation, but even Amnesty John McCain and Rick you dont have a heart Perry were strong. Heck, Lindsey Graham Lindsey Graham denounced the move as possibly illegal. And the fact that Romney didnt answer when asked if hed reverse the order is an especially bad sign.
I know all those whove been accusing me of being in the tank for Romney will say I told you so, but my distress isnt really about his views on the policy issue at hand he seemed to endorse Rubios as-yet-not-introduced revision of the DREAM Act, which Im pretty sure I wont like. Im appalled because this is a fundamental matter of our political order

In August, hopefully not.
I think one's darker than the other.
Romney really doesn’t disagree with Obama about most things. He’ll be happy to “repeal and replace Obamacare” with Romneycare. They both support abortion, contraception, homosexual rights, etc.
The biggest difference between Obama and Romney is that Romney can get RINO and Democrat support for the same “progressive” agenda.
You have know idea what I’m advocating because I didn’t advocate anything specific. Who said anything about amnesty? You assumptions and knee jerk reactions are examples of what make this site less appealing as time has gone on. God forbid we have a deep discussion on the illegals issue during an election year. It’s like you responding to the statement “We need better funding for orbital vehicles” by saying “You are talking about moon bases and we can’t have that and there is no room to discuss it.” Get my point? Ok, I agree we secure the borders, but what do you do with 14 million illegals? (...crickets)
I cannot disagree with what you say. It saddens me and I put the blame firmly on the gop/e and bush cabal.
BTM, one thing that really irritates me, are the ones that call ANYONE NOT supporting MythRom an Obama supporter... I don’t think they get the bigger picture that we can at least partially contain Zero with a full house.. If MythRom is in position, all of our Reps will go along with whatever he passes :/
I am in NO WAY, SHAPE or FORM an ZERO supporter.. but the same goes for MythRom.. Either way is glum, but, like I mentioned, at least Zero is part way in a ‘box’..
Personally, I hope and pray that the convention can give us better options..
Other than that, we just have to see what happenes day by day here :p
Take care, my FRiend
Now that you mentioned it, I do think Romney gets more sun.
Question for you.. I have said I will write in Palin... but, someone has told me that it will invalidate my vote.. (absentee ballot from Japan (Texas))... Do you have any knowledge about that?
If so, I’m not sure what to do.. I’ve heard that if I leave it blank, someone may check their preference when they receive it :/
LoL! my FRiend :) good one ;)
Vote for Virgil Goode, instead! Just do it! Vote for an actual conservative with an actual conservative voting record and much more political experience than Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, and Gary Johnson, combined!
Let me know when you have Step #2 of this plan.
Friend, I read and speak English fluently. Your communication was quite clear to me. You're okay with legalizing the lawbreakers, just like Mitt is. Re-read your post. You advocated it.
Ok, I agree we secure the borders, but what do you do with 14 million illegals?
Ooops! You're doing it again!
From what I understand, the vote is counted as an under-vote or as tho’ no vote was cast in that race. For that matter, I don’t think there’s a place for write ins at all on the November ballot, unless someone files officially as a “Write in” candidate.
As my signature says, “I’d rather hold the Republicans to their promises than watch Obama keep his.” Please vote against Obama - and for the Party with the most chance of winning.
Write-In, draft, what ever; maybe it is prophesy...
Are you reading this Glenn???
My views are similar. Romney simply has not earned my vote, but I am leaving the door open for him--if he takes strong, unequivocal stands on issues like this.
If Romney's campaign model is merely, "I'm not Obama," that's not enough. Romney must win my vote, but he has not done it yet.
Romney screwed the pooch, Obama ate the pooch. Six of one, half-dozen of the other.
The only way I might even consider voting for Romney is if he chose Walker as his VP. Even then, I probably couldn’t stomach him.
Glenn’s too emotional, driven by emotions, although he does good work. And he’s not on the ballot in November.
I’m voting for the best chance to beat Obama in November, 2012.
I'm voting ( or not ) to beat both Obama and "Obama light", unless the current dictator in chief calls off the minor little inconvenience planned for November.
