W Stabs Base in Back

OK, I’m through. I will no longer defend the President in public or private conversations. I have already quit sending the NRC and NRSC money, and haven’t yet written off the NRCC…their reaction to this “Immigration Reform” will be The Litmus Test for me.

Reactions from around the internet:

WASHINGTON (Map, News) – President Bush wants Congress
to approve an immigration compromise bill that will be supported mainly by Democrats. He’s no longer worried about getting re-elected, so in his pushing for the bill’s passage, Bush has now told millions of voters to get lost. These are the people who have been his most loyal supporters on virtually every other issue.

Yet Bush now condemns them as unwilling to do “what’s right for
America” and accuses their allies in Congress of using “empty rhetoric” to misrepresent the bill as a form of amnesty for illegal aliens. Bush appealed for “a chance to fix the problems in a comprehensive way that enforces our border and treats people with decency and respect.”

We don’t see how it is either decent or respectful to label critics of the immigration bill as unpatriotic and intellectually dishonest.
In the most fundamental sense, the debate is not about whether people from foreign countries should be allowed to come here and
become American citizens. In a post-9/11 world, the critical debate is about securing our borders; everything else is secondary.

NC Senate Budget Reflects Republican Initiatives by RL Clark

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 1, 2007

Guest Commentary

As a Christian Conservative Republican and former member of the N C State Senate who many, many times stood alone and cast the lone NO vote on the Democrat budget, I am dismayed and in disbelief that all but 2 Senate republicans voted for a democrat slanted Marxist style budget bill.

It to me is truly sad for the State of N C and the Republican Party which is supposed to be the party of smaller government, less taxes and regulations, And less government in the lives of citizens they took a sworn oath to serve.

This vote is the reason I’m hearing from the hundreds of people I come In contact on a daily and weekly basis, THERE’S NO DIFFERENCE IN DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS!!

Apparently the majority of the republican senators are content with receiving the few “crumbs” falling to the floor from the royal Democrat banquet table, Which they appear to lap up with glee!

After all most are in safe “seats” given to them by their Democrat “masters.

Respectfully,

R L Clark

N C State Senator

1995-1996

1997-1998
