Ok, its been way too long since I’ve hit the blog. Been tweeting and blogging from some of my other outlets. But it seemed time to pick it back up.
After watching the political discussion and evolution of the Republican party on the immigration reform issue, I felt like it was a good time to start typing.
Some people were suggesting that the republicans were pandering to Latino voters because, as John McCain put it, without immigration reform, “our chances of being in the majority are minimal.”
Talk about your political pandering!
How is this a winning strategy? Why would anyone vote for a party that says, “We’re changing our positions in order to win more votes.”? Doesn’t this alienate latino voters even more? At least the Democrats say, “This is what we believe.” Maybe its expensive. Maybe they aren’t the best at execution on policy. But at least they – on this issue – are standing for something they believe in.
Lets not be confused. There’s plenty of political upside for the Democrats as well. But in this case, they’ve got the upper hand in how they’re presenting their ideas.
Poor John McCain. He’s going downhill fast.
