As the world’s most degenerative body concluded it’s national monologue on illegal immigration, it is now up to House Republicans to halt two years worth of impeachment investigations and proceedings which are going to begin the moment Donks take a one vote majority in either the House or the Senate.
WASHINGTON – Senators are challenging House Republicans to give ground on their enforcement-only fix for the country’s immigration problems and consider offering citizenship to millions of immigrants illegally in the U.S.
A message to House Republicans: DO NOT RELENT. If House Republicans kill this bill, it will be you in the Senate in a few years rather than the bought off and paid for hacks who have sold our national security for a cheap bag of oranges.
From the President:
“It is a moment that millions of families have been hoping for. This is the moment that millions of people have been working for,” he said Thursday in an address to a joint session of the California Legislature. “Today’s historic vote is a monumental step forward, but we recognize that there is more debate ahead.”
Millions of people who are not voting U.S. Citizens, that is. This does nothing to help those millions of families. I meant to say that quote was from President Fox of Mexico. It’s so hard to tell the difference these days.
From the desk of Tugboat Teddy:
“First, to our leaders, to Senator Frist and Senator Reid: We wouldn’t be here this evening with this extraordinary coming together of the United States Senate and really an expression of the desire of the American people without the leadership in the United States that we have had, leadership in our committee with Senator Specter, Senator Leahy.
I pay tribute to my colleague and friend, Senator McCain, who we’ve worked with for three years in the development of this legislation; with our colleagues here, members of the Judiciary Committee and a band of brothers, Republican and Democrat alike, who saw the importance of the passage of this legislation, saw that America needed to relight the golden lamp.
Relight the lamp? What?
Maybe you don’t know it buster, but nobody can see the golden lamp because we’ve got illegals surrounding it like moths to a flame. Not because it’s gone out.
When Teddy’s happy, you know it’s wrong for America. Leaky and Spekter do not represent us and never will.
With this vote, McCain is throwing away his shot at the Presidency. With Frist’s complicity, he’s trying to jump Al Gore’s spot in line for least popular Tennessee politician who can’t carry his home state.
A sad day for the people of this country and if this bill reaches Junior’s desk it will mark the beginning of the Pre-Impeachment Era.
I’m not wavering over Iraq. Everyone had the same intelligence for a decade and Bush’s remarks are the same as his predecessors. They are interchangeable.
But if you want to go after him on this issue. Feel free. I won’t complain. He’s abdicated his Constitutional responsibility to protect the country. The same goes for everyone who supports this bill.
Maybe then one of these smart guys can explain under oath how you can look at somebody and tell whether they’ve been in the country illegally less than 2 years, between 2 & 5 years, or over 5 years. By just looking at them. Disgraceful.
KOOL-AID HAPPY HOUR UPDATE: As if anyone needed any further evidence that the kool-aid drinkers have moved on to 80 proof margaritas and still don’t get it, Drudge is running a line at the top about Tony Snow comparing illegal immigration to a traffic ticket:
“If you had a traffic ticket and you paid it, you’re not forever a speeder, are you?” White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said in response to questions from The Examiner.
“So the fact is, you have paid your debt to society,” he added. “And we have come up with a way to make sure that the debt to society gets paid. Then you move forward.”
House Republicans better step up to the plate and shut down the Snow Job before he pipes up again.
