Barry O and Little Johnny together on immigration

From Allah yesterday and I was a bit busy so I missed it. Hey, cut a guy a break, OK?

Brian Faughnan of the Weekly Standard has the skinny:

Q. With more Democrats in the Senate and the House and a Democrat in the White House, how do you see congressional efforts playing out on such issues as health care and immigration?

A: On immigration, there's been an agreement between (President-elect Barack) Obama and (Arizona Republican Sen. John) McCain to move forward on that. ... We'll do that. We have to get this economy stuff figured out first, so I think we'll have a shot at doing something on health care in the next Congress for sure.

Q: Will there be as much of a fight on immigration as last time?

A: We've got McCain and we've got a few others. I don't expect much of a fight at all. Now health care is going to be difficult. That's a very complicated issue. We debated at great length immigration. People understand the issues very well. We have not debated health care, so that's going to take a lot more time to do.

The Q & A is with Harry Reid, and he doesn't think there's going to be much of a fight. That means he either forgets history where well over 70% of this nation was opposed to the immigration reform that had been proposed, or he's just a simple idiot. If the test results cited in this post is any indicator then it's the latter. Let's face it folks, they're going to try and ram amnesty down our throats again, so get ready to melt down the Capitol Hill switchboard again. And we'll keep doing it until the monkeys in Congress get serious about real immigration reform. Of course, they don't want to do the obvious which is to enforce the laws on the books right now.

But this shows us that Little Johnny has gone back to his maverick ways. ::Sigh:: It's disappointing to see this happen, but we knew it would. We knew that once he lost the election he could go back to sucking up to Democrats and to the press. Hell, we'd wager the Democrats threw a "welcome home" party for him to let him know there were no hard feelings. Great. Wonderful. All this means is that we -- Marcie and I, and a few others here in Arizona -- need to locate an acceptable person to run against him in 2010.

Let me be clear here. Yes, we supported him as the Republican nominee. And yes we defended him. But he's not sticking to the lip service he gave us in the presidential campaign. He's going back to being the shaky Republican he has been for the last decade. If this is the path he's going to choose, then he'd better be ready for the backlash from the base.
