Reid to Azteca America forum: We’ll get your amnesty

posted at 2:59 pm on October 31, 2007 by Bryan

Amnesty just won’t die.

Azteca America, the fastest-growing Hispanic television network in the United States, is proud to have hosted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on this Monday’s broadcast of “Issues: Caras y Voces,” a political forum hosted by veteran Latino journalist Armando Guzman…

“They can do all the mean spirited things they want. I’m going to move ahead with an agenda that is positive. It’s easy to be negative. What we need to do of course is comprehensive immigration reform. We didn’t do that. We were stopped by the Republicans. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t continue to do the right thing.”

“Comprehensive immigration reform…” as soundly rejected, repeatedly, by the “mean spirited” American people. Reid isn’t listening to American voters. Or maybe he’s still confused as to who is and isn’t an American.

Amnesty just won’t die.

If you have a gun, shoot it in the head. That’s a sure way to kill it. If you don’t, get yourself a club or a torch. Beat it or burn it. It’ll go up pretty easy.

Reid isn’t listening to American voters.

Nope he did and didn’t like what they had to say, so he’s trying to make his very own voters to shift power.

All the brains in the world arent going to help Zombie Harry.

Well, if the majority of Americans who oppose this are in fact evil racist Republicans at heart then Dingy and his toadies will be toast soon enough, we just have to keep blocking these wretches from doing anything before we get them out of office.

bbz123 on October 31, 2007 at 3:07 PM

He’s confused as to who is paying his overblown salary and benefits.

Mommynator on October 31, 2007 at 3:07 PM

I’m going to move ahead with an agenda that is positive. It’s easy to be negative.

Riiiiiiiight, because they aren’t the single most negative and hateful elected Democrats of all time? I don’t think even Kos Kids or HuffPo… (Hos?) would argue that these Dems are all about being “positive” and shrugging off negativity (mainly because the nutroots are begging for negativity themselves). But seriously, who is this a-hole trying to fool?

RightWinged on October 31, 2007 at 3:08 PM

you know…making the case to illegals that they’re actually republicans wouldnt be too hard.

“you made a life for yourselves with zero help from the government…why support a dem who’s gonna take your money for programs you’ve already established that you don’t need.”

if the dems are gonna do everything they can to make them legal…we might as well take advantage in the event the unthinkable does happen.

ernesto on October 31, 2007 at 3:09 PM

I’ve been trying to figure out what the hell that guy is doing for years now. Nothing seems to make much sense.

I think I have figured it out though.

He’s obviously Reidtarded.

JunkCoast on October 31, 2007 at 3:12 PM

Sen. Reid is a traitor, pure and simple. As such, a Federal Bench warrant should be issued for his arrest. Charge: Teason against the United States.

FYI, this has more to do with Las Casino’s than America.

Wuptdo on October 31, 2007 at 3:16 PM

Why won’t they listen??? They know the public wants illegal immigration curbed and the borders secured before any talk of another amnesty, but they want their desert before eating their vegetables.

Dems are horrible on illegal immigration, and some of the Republican candidates aren’t much better.

We have current frontrunner Rudy- a former sanctuary city mayor who invited illegals to his city and currently against workplace enforcement, in favor of amnesty, and believes that illegal immigration isn’t and shouldn’t be a crime. Rudy is even worse than Bush and McCain on illegal immigration.

There’s McCain, who co-authored the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill, among others.

And there’s Romney, who (true to form) was for amnesty before he was against it.

In 2005, Romney said he would be “delighted” to provide support to illegal immigrants who wish to seek permanent legal status in the U.S.

In 2005, Romney called the McCain-Kennedy-Bush comprehensive immigration reform bill “reasonable” and defended the Senate bill. “I think that an amnesty program is one which all of the illegal immigrants who are here are now citizens and walk in and get your citizenship. What the President has proposed and what Senator McCain and Cornyn have proposed are quite different from that…those are the things that are being considered, and I think that those are reasonable proposals.”

Nice. Always got to get your bites in, don’t you?

Slublog on October 31, 2007 at 3:17 PM

The Republicans helped create this illegal immigrant juggernaut, it was a Republican president who provided illegals with the oped boarders, it was a number of Republican
Senators who pushed for amnesty and illegals are showing no allegiance or support for Republicans. What an IDIOTIC move on the part of the GOP elite to create such an elective nightmare for themselves

GogglesPisano on October 31, 2007 at 3:18 PM

They can do all the mean spirited things they want. I’m going to move ahead

That needs to be a campaign add run once an hour through the pres campaign.

peacenprosperity on October 31, 2007 at 3:23 PM

In the pic on the homepage, that looks like a UFO above Reid’s head. Maybe those are the aliens he’s pandering to.

But seriously, folks, Horrible Harry, like so many others, seems to have forgotten who his constituents are.

Bigfoot on October 31, 2007 at 3:23 PM

Maybe Rudy and Reid can get together and run on a third party ticket, la Plantacion de Parte.

MB4 on October 31, 2007 at 3:26 PM

Just the WOT what Congress tried to do wouldn’t make even the slightest difference with shamnesty if the POTUS had a sense of right versus wrong and acted on that basis.

Has any government dept. sent you a ballot for a national referendum on what America should do about illegal immigrants?

Speakup on October 31, 2007 at 3:29 PM

Nice. Always got to get your bites in, don’t you?

Slublog on October 31, 2007 at 3:17 PM

I try. I just saw that bit at National Review and was waiting for an immigration thread in which to post it. Thanks Bryan!

Hollowpoint on October 31, 2007 at 3:30 PM

Shadows what freaking shadows and how are they going to help the economy you pinhead do you understand simple supply and demand???
By them being in the work force they will drive down wages for those jobs which will in turn drop your tax revenues which will in turn hurt the American people.

Ok who embalmed dingy with Worcestershire sauce
harry has a little pink eye

Mojack420 on October 31, 2007 at 3:33 PM

Bush should just tell Reid he isn’t talking with anyone who has lower ratings than him. Except, Bush agrees with Reid, more’s the pity.

Sue on October 31, 2007 at 3:34 PM

Everytime the asshole Democrats try to impose “amnesty,” they get their head handed to them. 70% of Americans don’t want it, yet they continue to try.

I look forward to Republican created, anti-Democrat, campaign commercials that highlight the Democrats intention to undermine the nation.

georgej on October 31, 2007 at 3:35 PM

The pandering jackass known as “Dingy Harry” should be dragged out of Congress by his ears, tarred and feathered and exiled to the northern most reaches of Alaska.

This jackass knows full well what the great majority of the American people want … IT’S NOT AMNESTY.

Pandering scum like Reid should be forced to resign when it becomes obvious they no longer wish to abide by the will of the people.

darwin on October 31, 2007 at 3:36 PM

I’m keeping my torch and pitchfork close by.

Alden Pyle on October 31, 2007 at 3:41 PM

If Rudy and Reid get elected on that third Party la Plantacion de Parte ticket maybe they will appoint Jorge Arbusto as Embajador en Mexico. Jorge would mucho adorar that.

MB4 on October 31, 2007 at 3:41 PM

I think Harry is in for a long rest at the end of his term.

TheSitRep on October 31, 2007 at 3:42 PM

Look for the good voters of Nevada to give him the Daschle treatment next election no matter what position he happens to hold in the Senate.

Valiant on October 31, 2007 at 3:45 PM

Harry Reid ……

“I’m going to move ahead with an agenda that is positive.”

…. and in the same breath,

“What we need to do of course is comprehensive immigration reform. We didn’t do that.”

Doh!

fogw on October 31, 2007 at 4:01 PM

I bet Reid thinks his imaginary friend “Timmy” is American!

Clark1 on October 31, 2007 at 4:03 PM

“They can do all the mean spirited things they want. I’m going to move ahead with an agenda that is positive. It’s easy to be negative.

Apply this to the Dems and Iraq!

gmoonster on October 31, 2007 at 4:19 PM

Don’t blame Reid, he’s just a Boooosh (it’s Halloween after all) clone when it comes to amnesty for criminal aliens and sacking our national sovereignty.

Buzzy on October 31, 2007 at 4:26 PM

Harry Reid can appear on Azteca America, but won’t appear on Rush’s show. Guess we know who his target audience is.

ctmom on October 31, 2007 at 4:27 PM

Heh. Reid is a tool. And trust Hollowpoint to take a thread about Reid and the Dem’s full scale push towards amnesty and try to derail it to an attack on Romney.

I’ve said numerous times that Hollowpoint is the csdeven of Romney antagonism. I see I’m still right.

Vanceone on October 31, 2007 at 4:29 PM

Reid’s (and Bush’s) stance on illegal imigration caused this.

Reid and Bush should PERSONALLY pay for the (very) expensive hospital burn treatment bills for these 11 burned iilegal aliens.

We must stop the rewards. Completely.

fred5678 on October 31, 2007 at 4:34 PM

Vanceone on October 31, 2007 at 4:29 PM

You apparently didn’t notice that I mentioned Rudy and McCain too; I included National Review link on Romney because it’s brand spankin new.

This is a thread about a Democrat push for amnesty- I hardly think it off topic to point out that 3 of the 4 Republican frontrunners either currently or previously supported amnesty as well.

Hollowpoint on October 31, 2007 at 4:40 PM

What we need to do of course is comprehensive immigration reform. We didn’t do that. We were stopped by the Republicans will of the American people.

There… that’s better.

Paul the American on October 31, 2007 at 6:19 PM

(D)emocrats want Illegals to provide the votes Americans Won’t!

DANEgerus on October 31, 2007 at 6:52 PM

Tell me he didn’t say 12 million “undocumented Americans”.
Hell no! Yes he did!

Vanquisher on October 31, 2007 at 7:13 PM

“Comprehensive reform”. It’s a term I hear all the time (usually from the Left) and it usually involves something that IMO is harmful to America when it comes from them.

Yakko77 on October 31, 2007 at 7:42 PM

Rep. Shuler to Introduce Enforcement-Only Bill Soon

(October 31) A new immigration enforcement bill that would remove the jobs magnet for illegal immigration is expected to be introduced in the House very soon. The SAVE Act (Secure America with Verification Enforcement) will be sponsored by Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) and is expected to have bi-partisan support. NumbersUSA believes this bill originating on the Democratic side of the House is just the vehicle to give us a chance to actually pass immigration legislation through a Democratic-controlled Congress that would significantly improve the lives of most Americans. Specifically, The SAVE Act would eventually require every employee in America to go through the E-Verify system, identifying all illegal aliens and removing any “glitches” that once allowed them to pass through the system and into the workforce undetected.
