"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Bush, Reid Trade Barbs Over Immigration Reform

Cross posted from The Uncooperative Blogger

"Neither one of these people have the immigration issue correct. Yes, let’s treat them with humanity, I do not want them in prison or beaten. I want them to go home, where they are citizens."

The Uncooperative One has an immigration plan worthy of taking note of, follow the more link above (if you haven't already) to see what they are. The reason I am commenting on the plan is that he ends it with "Yup, it is mean, but it is practical and will work." I'm a pretty nice guy, but I don't know that his plan is "mean." What is mean about wanting to protect our borders or having control on aspects of our country that we can, to a degree control? I suppose it is only "mean" if peoples expectations are ludicrously high and the outside world image of the U.S., as well as we internally is too high.

For some reason, the U.S. is not allowed to cover it's own *ss in the world. If we do, or suggest that we want to we get a whole bunch of guff from everyone. What gives. There are not many, I would think, that are against immigration or immigrants; the media and proponents of legalizing the illegal paint it that way, but that doesn't make it so.

What is wrong with our wanting to respect the laws of our nation? What is wrong with the U.S. observing its right to sovereignty? Many of us look in awe (I don't mean admirable awe either) at europe and its nanny state policies; and seems that since the U.S. can afford it (as of right now maybe), the world expects us to follow suit (and we sure do our fair share of trying).

Nope, "not gonna do it." When we have the borders under some semblance of control, we can discuss it and should discuss it, but until then - KEEP OUT!
