By ‘clarifying’ his position on illegal aliens and the DREAM act during the GOP debate in Orlando, Governor Rick Perry managed to insult millions of good American people (most of whom are blessed with hearts) who sincerely believe that illegals are a serious threat to this nation’s homeland security, sovereignty, and above all else, the rule of law.
Those same patriots also believe that any actions which reward illegals with in-state tuition, driver's licenses, and other benefits serve only to encourage ever greater numbers to come here illegally.
Consequently, as the Rick Perry candidacy smolders in the ruins of self-inflicted waterboarding, conservatives looking for a candidate with a strong, pro-America resume on illegal aliens have been forced to rethink and reboot.
During the course of that process, the name of Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey has inevitably surfaced and, because of his tough fiscal manners, the Governor is being pressured to ‘reconsider’ his non-candidacy for the presidency.
However, a cursory vetting of the rotund Governor exposes the fact that he is a flaming RINO when it comes to illegal aliens.
As documented at the reference, in part:
If Chris Christie really does intend to present himself as some sort of conservative leader on the national scene, he's got a lot of 'splainin' to do about his position on illegal immigration.
That phrase, by the way, comes from Desi Arnaz of "I Love Lucy" fame. Desi was, quite famously, an immigrant - a legal one.
Arnaz took advantage of the "path to citizenship" that was then, and is now, available to foreigners.
So just what is Christie hinting at when he tells Jake Tapper that we need a "commonsense path to citizenship." We already have one, and more than a million people a year take advantage of it.
What's he's hinting at, of course, is amnesty. But pols know the A-word scares voters, so they use the slippery "path to citizenship" line to fool the public. Are you fooled? Me neither.
But I love when our governor tells Tapper "there have been folks all over the map on this bill."
Yeah, folks named Chris Christie. Recently he criticized Arizona officials for attempting to do what he so conspicuously failed to do as U.S. Attorney - enforce immigration law."
So there we have it: Another double-talking RINO on illegal aliens.
Sorry Governor, but American don’t need another stinkin’ pro-illegal alien president!
