The Senate Reaches A Deal, And America Gets A Raw Deal

Indeed. Neither of us can believe that the GOP decided to make this deal. We are listening to Hugh's show right now, and saying the callers are upset is an understatement. Incensed is closer to the right word. Here, let me give you a taste of some of the more "controlled" reaction from the base. This comes from Hugh Hewitt, and is one of his listeners:


I am angry, heart broken and nauseated over this bill. I have voted republican my entire life. Not anymore!My husband is a legal immigrant and citizen. He now feels his citizenship to this country means NOTHING!

We live in Tucson and deal with low wages, rising crime and 1 trauma center for a population of 1 million.As far as I'm concerned, John McCain, Jon Kyl and the rest of the republican party that refuses to listen to it's constituents are TOAST!!!!!!

Fed UP,

Governor Romney issued the following statement just a few moments ago:

"I strongly oppose today's bill going through the Senate. It is the wrong approach. Any legislation that allows illegal immigrants to stay in the country indefinitely, as the new 'Z-Visa' does, is a form of amnesty. That is unfair to the millions of people who have applied to legally immigrate to the U.S.

"Today's Senate agreement falls short of the actions needed to both solve our country's illegal immigration problem and also strengthen our legal immigration system. Border security and a reliable employment verification system must be our first priority."

Kudos to the governor for doing what should be done and be said by ANY and ALL Republican candidates running for president. John McCain has murdered the GOP with this bill, and his connection to it. Let us face hard facts here, ladies and gentlemen. John McCain has beenb a bitter, angry man since 2000, and he has decided to take it out on the nation. His record over the last six years proves it. And with his involvement in this deal, he just put the final nail, literally, in his political coffin. He is done, and he may have just finished the party off with him.

There is no hope for the Senate to stop this. Thomas was right in his continuing post (scroll down) that it is now up to the House to kill this. He has a sound strategy in targeting not only Republicans, but the new, "Blue Dog" Democrats. Appeal to them that if this bill goes through, and they are involveed, they are liable to lose their jobs in 2008.

Two-point-five TRILLION dollars in costs to the taxpayer, and the bulk of it coming just as the Social Security program will be entering the danger years. A joke of a fence. No guarantee for any of the other security measures. This is not a good deal for America. America received the raw deal today from it's lawmakers, and none of them are concerned about it. They are too busy jockeying in front of the cameras and microphones telling us to shut up, and "take it like a man."

WE are not kidding on this. ANY Republican involved in voting for this deal is going to lose in 2008. We already had less than a 50/50 chance of holding the 21 seats in the Senate up for reelection, and now it is nothing more than a pipe dream.

Hugh is beginning this hour talking to Duncan Hunter who is going to have a boon from this deal. He just said if he were president, he would definitely veto it. I hope the president pays attention to the backlash that is exploding around the country right now, and if I were anyone in Congress right now, I would be listening to the people that are hot over this issue.

Their job probably depends on it now.
