Those Damned Republicons and Their New Hot Topic
I mentioned this new hot topic and its use as a decoy to distract attention from the real issues at Americans Deserve The Truth. I find it very humorous that Bill James, Dan Bishop and Jim Puckett couldn't wait to climb on board the immigration shuttle. Their plan to help tackle illegal immigration locally is to discontinue doing county business with those companies hiring undocumented workers and refuse services for illegal immigrants. It might sound good, but it only takes a moment to realize how unrealistic and expensive this would be. It would have been nice if the terrible trio had spent a moment thinking this through.
Mike Drummond covers this new bit of grandstanding in today's Charlotte Observer. Everyone he interviewed pretty much shoots this plan down. It simply isn't realistic. Anyone with a wee bit of common sense can figure that out for themselves. So why make the proposal in the first place? It's all about having the appearance that they are on the same page as the Preznut.
Now that the national Republicon strategy is so transparent it is fun to watch them all tag along behind. As soon as the terrible little tyrant has decided to shift his focus to something new off they all trot. It is an election year for the board, after all and they want to be in line for any GOP payoffs...um...er...payouts.
