Audio: Michelle and Dean Barnett conduct an amnesty autopsy

posted at 8:47 pm on June 26, 2007 by Allahpundit

Is it time to start “transitioning” our hopes from the Senate to the House? Or, as Dean suggests, are we in store for a not so pleasant surprise there, too?

Here’s a helpful visual aid, courtesy of Dean, while you listen along.

That’s why we need to try to stop it before it ever gets to the house. It’d be too easy for the white house to shove it through like they’re doing in the senate.

This is a very important bill, not just because of the humongous impact it will have on our borders and sovereignty, but there is another consideration. The population as a whole: Democrat, Republican, Independent, liberal, conservative, moderate seem to be all in opposition to this bill. However, the Senate and possibly the House seems is intent on pushing this through regardless of the people’s will. If this bill passes Senate and House and is signed by the President, Congress will be essentially saying that it is no longer the people’s representative institution–that it answers to others. Now, while this has pretty much been a tacit and not so tacit given amongst many, the passage of this bill regardless of the overwhelming popular opposition to it will amount to a bold faced statement of fact.

Michelle has more faith in the spineless republicans than I do… to me, that photo commentary is almost right, in my view, the elephant is in free fall, not on the edge.

House reps. missing in action. Michelle has concern in her voice for good reasons.Nows no time to back away from the Republicans and a few Demo’s (very few). Their still out their fighting for us. Lets give them some support.

I suspect that many of the Republicans in the Senate think elephants can fly.

I don’t agree with the autopsy heading here. I like to think of it as a reassesment. Dean asked ‘worst case scenerio’. We should look for more Latin representation in government also the watering down of the American culture. Oh yeah more crime,welfare,drugs ghettos (bodegas). On a good note the Latin culture is overwhelming Christian(Catholic) and we get a new labor force. I was getting tired of working anyway. Pedro more tea!

The base either has to get control of the Republican leadership process in Congress or there has to be a real deamatic grassroots rebellion and the ousting of the old boy network. Maybe take some of the good young guns in the house and run them against these corrupt senators. There needs to be recruitment, why have we allowed the good solid conservatives like Santorum and Hayward to fade away after their losses? We have to support and find a place for them

Twelve years of control and they did nothing and now they whine that the democrats have control and there is nothing they can do. If things don’t change the future looks grim.

I watched NBC news tonight and this bipartisan bill got national news Democrat monopartisan credit.

The Republicans were spotlighted as opposing what the MSM is portraying (of course) as a great bill and the liberals got the humanitarian credit.

Republican lawmakers need to get a clue, amnesty pandering by them benefits the other team and the MSM is going to see to it that the GOP gets screwed regardless.

Got principles? Two brain cells to rub together maybe?

I know this is off the subject a little, can you imagine the traffic jams after 17 to 20 million are no longer afraid to have those junks breaking down on our expressways, with the tow trk. and policia behind them. One is all it take’s in rush hr..Right now they are not out here and when you see the car thats holding up thing more in likely it’s them.

Relationship to the President what relationship?
This is the stuff that pisses me off about Michelle; she should have answered that question with a question. Bush has done nothing good for the country as far as immigration is concerned; Bush is screwing the American worker with his unwavering support for the McCain Kennedy fuck the American worker bill.

Yep. And others think Rocks can Float.

IrishEi, I realize you’re just kidding around, but:

Pumice: A light-colored, frothy, vesicular volcanic rock, usually of intermediate and felsic composition, formed by the expansion of gas in erupting lava. Commonly perceived as lumps or fragments of pea size and larger but can also occur abundantly as ash-size particles. Because of its numerous gas bubbles, pumice commonly floats on water.


FloatingRock on June 26, 2007 at 10:47 PM

…so hey, maybe elephants can fly. :)

FloatingRock on June 26, 2007 at 10:49 PM

Haaaaaa you got me FloatingRock. Never would have thought of pumice. As for the elephants, I’m not so optimistic. All I’ve seen them do lately is leave big, steaming piles of you-know-what everywhere they go.

Anyway, welcome! (You are new, right?) Just be careful…there’s a two-eyed Irish person who tries to impersonate me from time to time. *looks left, then right with her one good Ei*

Thanks for the welcome and glad to join you. I’m a new member but have been lurking here since HotAir started hosting the Jihad Watch videos.

There’s an annual concrete canoe competition, for that matter. I grew up just over the hill from Kansas State University, whose Engineering school had its own local competition before the national one started.
