It’s the Drug War, Stupid

Share

Any rational thinker knows that the AZ immigration mess is going to seriously damage the GOP. Contrary to the popular lies of the far right talk so demigods, a hard line approach is a sure fire loser for any candidate.

“…And the party’s long-term thinkers worry that the Arizona law is merely a quick political fix which may create a permanent rift with the fastest growing segment of the U.S. electorate.

“It’s like a virus that you get and you don’t feel like you’re unhealthy for the first few days, but after that you have a fever and you’re really sick,” says Matthew Dowd, former President George W. Bush’s chief strategist in 2004. “You can’t win a national election and you can’t win certain states without the Latino vote. And Republicans already had a problem.”

Sorry for the post today. The Pink Flamingo is dealing with an unfinished and over-due book (the May 1 deadline is sooo not going to be made.)

This comes from an email that found its way into my inbox. I am fairly comfortable with many of the details, enough so to use it. I am told the email is not a hoax.

Why Are Conservatives Clueless About Immigration “Reform”

Share

On the Chris Wallace show on Fox Sunday, Brit Hume and Juan Williams almost came to blows over immigration reform and what is going on in Arizona. Williams had a very accurate view of the situation. Hume repeated the old conservative party line.

That was fine 2 years ago. The problem now is the situation has completely changed. Conservatives are so concerned over hard core immigration reform they are oblivious to the actual situation. In fact, they absolutely refuse to acknowledge that there are factors at play that completely taint the entire process.

Is Cochise County Murder Drug Related & Sign of Things To Come?

Share

The Pink Flamingo has been following this story the way everyone else has, only I might see it a bit differently. The ONLY story you can find is how dastardly the illegal was who killed Robert Krentz. Unfortunately, THAT is not the story. The Arizona Attorney General said the murder was consistent with that of a drug cartel killing. Unfortunately the Cochise County Sheriff is not going along with the AG. The usual suspects are using their hatred of anyone Hispanic to promote immigration reform.
