Easter Message from George Allen and Newt Gingrich - Pass A Tough Immigration Law
NewsMax News has an article about today's rightwing gabfest on "Face the Nation." On this Easter Sunday, CBS should be ashamed of itself.
First our goober senator George 'Gomer Pyle' Allen gives a big shout-out to all the racists who want to build a wall between Mexico and the United States; and then to add injury to insult, viewers are treated to some more brotherly love from disgraced former House leader Newt Gingrich.
Why are Allen and Gingrich on the Sunday talk shows?!? I mean, should they not be in church somewhere on Easter Sunday?!?
Well, Gingrich had a dire warning for Republicans:
"[G]et [your] act together" and pass tough new laws against illegal immigration - or the Democrats will win back the House and Senate in November.Oh no, John Conyers, judicial and intelligence hearings, the horror, the HORROR. .
"The question for Republicans in the next 90 days is: Are they going to become the party of real change?" Gingrich said. "Are they going to learn some lessons and get their act together?"Gingrich is sooo full of crap. He knows perfectly well that the Senate and some House members in Latino districts and states are not going to go along with any "new tough" measures; and in fact are running away from their own Draconian bill as fast as they can.
So when Republicans lose the House in November, Gingrich can say, "See, I told you so." And ride his white horse to the front of the line and displace Sen. John McCain as the leading presidential contender in the Republican party.
Only one slight problem for both Allen and Gingrich; they are playing from the exact old playbook that worked in the past but has grown increasingly stale; it worked for Dubya; it worked for Bush I; it worked for Reagan, but not this time around.
For what these idiots don't understand is that the '08 election is not going to be about immigration but Iraq; and what's more, after an onslaught of Republican crimes are exposed to the electorate, they'll all take an even bigger bath at the polls in '08 than they did this coming fall.
