How not to refute a claim

Apparently, Arizona Senator John Kyl (GOP) has made the claim that the Obama administration is holding border control hostage until "comprehensive immigration reform" (meaning "amnesty" as the Democrats tend to phrase things, of course) is passed. With such an inflammatory charge, the White House had to respond, of course.

And how did they respond? After saying the claims were false, they noted that "truly securing the border will require a comprehensive solution to our broken immigration system".

In other words, Kyl is 100% correct. The Democrats are holding up efforts for adequate border security until they get comprehensive immigration deform, and it appears that to hide this fact, they're also counting on inadequate instruction in the government's schools to addle our reading comprehension.

Too often, of course, they're right, but in a world that knew how to read, this would be a slow ground ball right to first base--and not with Bill Buckner there, either.

the dems win either way. the status quo favors them as it is, as they create an ever growing constituency class.

hate to say it, but the only thig that will stop it might be bullets.

They might "win," but one would have hoped that they would realize that the destruction of our nation's distinctives is in itself a tremendous cost.

Of course, after 13 to 25 years of government schooling, probably they don't know about that, and actively spurn that which is actually different...
