Smoke 'Em Out

Charles Krauthammer raises the point I've been wondering about: If everyone says they're for border enforcement, why not pass a border enforcement bill first?

Of course, the answer is obvious . . . not every politician who says he (or she) cares about it is being sincere. But it would be highly instructive to see just who, exactly, is willing to support a stand-alone enforcement bill -- which America wants -- and who would insist it must be coupled with some sort of legalization.

What's more, it would be good politics for the Republicans -- not that that's a consideration that seems to motivate them much these days.

Someone should tell the GOP that when you're up to your armpits in quicksand, you should look first to your supporters for asssitance before accepting "help" from your political enemies.

Since I doubt everyone in the [Beltway] GOP is stupid, its reliance on Sen. Reid instead of its base suggests it sees itself as having more in common with him than with us.

Well, maybe everyone in the [Beltway] GOP is that stupid after all.
