Dream is Killed Off by Democrats

The cloture motion to move the Dream Act failed in the Senate by 52-48.

Voting with GOPers were Democratic Sens. Max Baucus of Montana, Robert Byrd of West Virginia, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Byron Dorgan of North Dakota, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Mary Landreau of Louisiana, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Jon Tester of Wyoming.

Yep, the eight votes Dems needed to bring the bill to the Senate for an up or down vote.

Read it and weep, lefties; and please don't ask the howler to help elect Democrats any time soon; count her as a share in the Congressional 65.5 percent disapproval rate.

For crying out loud, Republican Sens. Tent Lott, Kay Bailey Hutchison and Larry Craig voted for the motion!!!

Thankfully, Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia joined the Dems and Virginia voters can hold their heads high for having the discernment to elect a true leader and patriot.

Unfortunately, Virginia's senior senator, retiring John Warner, didn't see fit to help poor innocent children realize the American dream; and it's a shameful disgrace, too.

Politicians love to talk about blameless children when demagoguing a woman's choice. But let them face a vote to put empty rhetoric into deeds and they're all hat and no cattle.
