Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Nightmare averted: Dream Act dies in the Senate!

Lawbreakers, freeloaders, and RINO Senators from IN hardest hit.  Details:

Senate Republicans have blocked a bill to grant hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children a chance to gain legal status if they enroll in college or join the military.

Sponsors of what they call the Dream Act needed 60 Senate votes for it, but fell five short. The House passed the bill last week. It was a last-ditch effort to enact it before it Republicans take control of the House from Democrats in January.

Dozens of immigrants wearing graduation mortarboards watched from the Senate’s visitors gallery, disappointment on their faces, as the 55-41 vote was announced.

So who were the crossovers?

Three Republicans — Robert Bennett of Utah (flipping the bird at the majority of UT voters who junked him in the GOP primary – CL), Lisa Murkowski of Alaska (flipping the bird at the Alaska GOP – CL) and Richard Lugar of Indiana — joined 50 Democrats and the Senate’s two independents in voting for the bill.

Five Democrats — Max Baucus of Montana, Jon Tester of Wyoming, Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas — joined 36 Republicans in blocking it. Not voting were Republican Sens. Jim Bunning of Kentucky, Orrin Hatch of Utah and Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

What the h3ll is Lugar thinking?  He’s already persona non grata in coservative circles, and all indications are that he will draw a Tea Party opponent in the IN GOP primary in 2012.  What in the Sam Hill was he thinking by casting a “Yes” vote in a lame duck session when Reid didn’t even have the votes on his own side to pass the thing?  Is Lugar just trying to tweak the Tea Partiers, and if so, has he secretly decided on retirement already?  I don’t get it.

Anywho, the Dream Act was an attempt at backdoor amnesty, and it failed.

Oh, speaking of backdoors, the Senate voted to repeal “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”.

  1. I LOVE it! Their SORRY, INSIDIOUS, and all-to-predictable tactic FAILED to pass. There will be NO spontaneous generation on millions of eager new democrats! To even consider that people who have infiltrated our nations borders should be given the task of defending the very borders they infiltrated…its disgusting. If people are comfortable breaking federal laws in oder to “provide for their families”, why exactly would they NOT be expected to sell secrets to our enemies for large sums of money in order to “provide for their families”? Seriously…obviously respecting the laws of the US govt is not a priority becuase they are ILLEGAL

  3. Now they need to kill the START thing. Here’s an idea, the US and Russians could dispose of some of their excess nukes on N. Korea. That would solve a couple of problems.

  6. Let them blame the Republicans for blocking this travesty! What can be the downside? Other than race baiters, open borders enthusiasts, RINO’s and “Progressives” , what percentage of US citizens/legal voters were actually for this bill? I believe that the vast majority of Americans will be thanking their lucky stars that this thing didn’t pass.

  7. Hooray! Another victory for American citizens. I know without a doubt that the beneficiaries of the Dream Act would vote Democrat and ensure the destruction of our way of life.

    I hope this encourages other American citizens who love this nation to fight harder.
