Hillary Clinton backs NY Driver’s License for illegal aliens

After getting caught in a moment of doublespeak in last night’s Democrat debate, HRC today made a political calculation to fully endorse New York’s controversial proposal to issue Driver’s Licenses to illegal immigrants, handing the GOP a front-burner general election issue.

“Senator Clinton supports governors like Governor Spitzer who believe they need such a measure to deal with the crisis caused by this administration’s failure to pass comprehensive immigration reform,’” her campaign said.

Mrs. Clinton’s aides said her statement was intended to signal that she broadly supported Mr. Spitzer’s goal of awarding driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. source

The issue of border security has galvanized conservatives, and is a hot-button issue in the Republican campaign. Just ask John McCain. For HRC to attach herself to amnesty for illegal immigrants, an issue that is favored by just 22% of voters, seems to me to be political suicide. Perhaps she figures she would rather take away the “double-speak” accusations from her Primary opponents, calculating that she can move back to the center in time for November 2008. If so, it is a risky strategy, and one that may prove to be more costly than she reckons.

Henh…in order for her to make risky moves, the LSM has to hold her feet to the fire, and we all know that ain’t gonna happen.
The one thing she can’t control or spin, like she has been able to do so far, is if she becomes the donks choice, she will have to do more serious in-depth interviews, and debate the GOP candidate several times, publicly and nationally. That’s what I’m waiting for, that’s when it gets really interesting for me.
She’s not gonna make the donks happy when that happens.

First we freely allow them to jump the border with no recourse and what does it lead to. None. What laws are typically broken.

1. Well, border jumping
2. Social Security Fraud
3. Theft of services such as medical and education.
4. Failure to register with the Selective Service. Yes, even illegal aliens are required to register.
5. Tax evasion
6. Driving without insurance. In most states it is required and is against the law to do so.

Not to mention “in state” tuition breaks even though they are here illegally.

Sure, give them a fricken license. Maybe Hill wants them to be able to drive to the voting both legally. Well, without insurance that is.

President Bush on Wednesday nominated Edward Schafer, a former two-term Republican governor from North Dakota, to lead the Agriculture Department, which is hoping to influence the outcome of a new five-year farm bill.

How the dems plan to Raise taxes,

Give driver’s license to illegal immigrants,

get out of Iraq,

Socialize healthcare,

UFO’s, Halloween costumes, legalized marijuana, and Hillary doubletalk.

Who won? The GOP!

I had no idea there was a gathering of goofballs tonight, until I saw the news streamer on Fox.
Henh…they said Kookcinich and Richardson got upset that they weren’t being called on. How funny!

Rosenbaum’s Revelations: LAT sitting on DC sex scandal story?

You’ve just gotta read this….

So I was down in DC this past weekend and happened to run into a well-connected media person, who told me flatly, unequivocally that “everyone knows” The LA Times was sitting on a story, all wrapped up and ready to go about what is a potentially devastating sexual scandal involving a leading Presidential candidate. “Everyone knows” meaning everyone in the DC mainstream media political reporting world. “Sitting on it” because the paper couldn’t decide the complex ethics of whether and when to run it. The way I heard it they’d had it for a while but don’t know what to do. The person who told me )not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.

If it’s true, I don’t envy the LAT. I respect their hesitation, their dilemma, deciding to run or not to run it raises a lot of difficult journalism ethics questions and they’re likely to be attacked, when it comes out—the story or their suppression of the story—whatever they do.


I asked Rosenbaum the following question
: You said, “The person who told me (not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.”
Do you suppose that your acquaintance assumed you would write about it, or that you wouldn’t?
his response:
It’s a valid question and I can’t be certain, but I didn’t get the feeling there was calculation behind it; it came up casually in the course of a meandering discussion with two others present, not as if it was designed to achieve an objective.

So, RR doesn’t believe he was being set up to be the one who would break the story and give the pack an excuse to jump in….

Blogger Vince Foster has an interesting SWAG theory…

I’ve been getting a few emails from people who say they work in Washington and everyone “knows” about this relationship. Once again – this is just throwing this out there. It is about Hillary’s relationship with her “right hand woman” Huma.
Who is Huma? Read about her here:
For instance, I got an email from an government email address recently “usdoj.gov” who wrote:
I am close enough to both Hillary and Huma to know that it is an open secret on the campaign that those two are romantically involved. It is something you will never get them to verify though…

So… I’m just going to throw this out there as a wild hunch of why the LATimes is sitting on this story.

I do get a lot of viewers looking at that page on my website. Are they looking at that page because they are hearing about the rumor?

Makes as much sense as any of the other theories out there.

Well, of course they would only with hold a scandal if it was a leftie. DUH!

BTW, I clicked on the newsmax ad/poll, so you would get credit for the click. I did not participate in the poll, as I don’t need new e-blasts on my new puter.

Stupid Congress Tricks

Not long ago, we blogged about the Chairman of the House Judiciary Commitee, John Conyers, and his decision to politicize the committee by deciding to ask for confidential whistleblowers to come forward if they had information regarding the Justice Department since 2001.

So what happened? TPM has the story…

…in an email sent out today, the committee inadvertently sent the email addresses of all the would-be whistleblowers to everyone who had written in to the tipline. The committee email was sent to tipsters who had used the website form, including presumably whistleblowers themselves, and all of the recipients of the email were accidentally included in the “to:” field — instead of concealing those addresses with a so-called blind carbon copy or “bcc:”. […]

Compounding the mistake, the committee later sent out a second email attempting to recall the original email; it, too, included all recipients in the “to:” field, according to a recipient of the emails.

Attaboy, John. You’re a Real Man of Genius……

It’s a catchy tune, and you can dance to it! Doug Ross takes off, check it out.

Henh.
Not only are their social graces deficient, but so is their netiquette.

BTW, remembered to install spyware blaster, when I got home, and ran a spyware scan. Not one critter of any kind. The scan I ran last night, showed 71 items, including traces. Spyware blaster really does work.
