Economic Crises Will Take Precedence Over Near-Term Immigration Overhaul - WSJ.com
God, that xenophobic rhetoric on illegal immigration was their favorite topic for about four years. You couldn't turn on Sean Hannity's show without seeing him frothing at the mouth about hispanics.
I must say though, that I think a lot of the wingnuts are right about what the GOP needs to do - they need to become even more rightwing; they need to keep up the harsh rhetoric on immigration; and they need to push for even more corporate deregulation.
What's so xenophobic about wanting to enforce the law?
Nothing. It's the way they talk about hispanics in general that hurt them.
The sotto voce racism (which was increasing less and less sotto over time) definitely did hurt the GOP.
They made their bed and they laid down with racist reactionaries and they lost the election in part because of that, too.
I'm not going to help you dig yourself out of a hole. Libs told you for four years what you were doing wrong, and you laughed us off.
There's nothing wrong with enforcing laws. There is something wrong with the manner in which rhetoric and images are used as wedge issues. There are ways to address certain issues without using inflammatory rhetoric and without alienating people.
You'll have to figure it out on your own. My advice was ignored by you cons for years.
Funny... it's you libs that put those words into the mouths of REPs... I hardly EVER see racist or xenophobic words coming from those who support immigration reform and enforcement of illegal immigrant laws..
wanting to ensure that all people in this country are here legally... not a bad thing
McCain supported amnesty for illegals. So much for that idea!
The real reason Republicans are losing is because America's going non-white.
