Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever written these words, but you go Lindsey Graham. You’re right.
The war of words over Benghazi escalated Wednesday when President Obama told his critics to “go after me” rather than Ambassador Susan Rice. Those critics then said they would do exactly that.
“Mr. President, don’t think for one minute I don’t hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi. I think you failed as Commander in Chief before, during, and after the attack,” said Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican.
An advocacy group for young immigrants expressed concern Wednesday after President Barack Obama, at his first press conference in months, said he would support “a pathway for legal status” for those living in the country illegally.
That Obama used the phrase “legal status” instead of “citizenship” raised alarm bells for some deep in the weeds of immigration advocacy, since some more conservative immigration reformers think the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally should be given legal status but not the opportunity to become citizens.
“He looked like he sidestepped around saying ‘citizenship,’” said Marisol Valero, spokeswoman for United We Dream, a group that represents young people who were brought to the country illegally as children and want the opportunity to become citizens. “We are worried that the president and other leaders will not be supporting a path to citizenship for everyone.”
Obama and his part controlled the entire Congress and the presidency and didn’t even propose immigration reform. He spent another two years without control of Congress and still didn’t propose anything. If you are one of those folks advocating for liberal immigration reform and voted for Obama, isn’t it time to admit that you’ve been suckered?
Senate Democrats today elected freshman Sen. Chris Larson of Milwaukee to serve as minority leader for the upcoming session.
Larson is one of those activist, bomb-throwing (rhetorical), ultra-liberals who plays a no-holds-barred kind of politics. He’s the guy the Senate Democrats chose as their leader. This indicates that they intend to lurch even further to the left in the wake of their election defeat.
Yet these same liberals are telling national Republicans that they must move to the left because they lost at the national level.
