Well, Let Me Reconsider About Tom Tancredo

Yesterday I mentioned that in the spirit of Republican unity I would try to go light on Congressman Tancredo during the general election season. I must say comments like these make that hard.

An immigration compromise plan will not work, because President Bush cannot be trusted to "certify" America's borders are secure, Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) said Thursday........"I don't trust the president to say the borders are secure," Tancredo told an audience at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. He said immigration policy should be formulated with an emphasis on law enforcement as opposed to "political pandering" for votes....

I have had a enough to be quite honest. Tancredo can disagree with the President but to imply that the President can't be trusted is insane and sounds like something from the other side of the aisle. Disagreement fine. However, to continue to use this rethoric to appeal to this segment of the voters is beyond the pale.

Tancredo may be criticizing Bush for his immigration policy, but that doesn't make him souns like a liberal in any sense. Tancredo disagrees because he'd love to see this entire country to be a WASP nest, if you catch my drift. He's a far-far-right nutcase endorsed by white supremacists.

Tancredo deserves all the criticism you can give him. If he's damaging the GOP cause, then by all means give him hell!

Ironic that Tom Tancredo should send a letter to the Pope, given that he's accused the Catholic Church (and the Mormon Church) of conspiring to "open our borders" to illegal immigrants. He's a nutcase; I wish the folks of Colorado would figure out how embarrasing he is to all Americans and finally get rid of him.

Amen to all the above

Oh anI realize he is no liberal. HE is just some one with a huge ego that wishes to advance no matter what

I only wish Tom Tancredo were my Congressman! He's right...we cannot trust Bush to monitor illegal immigration. Just look at what he's done so far...
Every time he talks amnesty, the numbers across our southern border increase by 50%. Immigration enforcement is a joke. And he promoted the "patriot act," which strips us of our Constitutional rights. Oh, yeah, I'm just dying to trust that man.
