Krauthammer on Obama's disloyalty:
"You can't have it both ways. Particularly coming from Mexico, a country where if you enter illegally it's a felony and you get up to two years in prison. And if you do it a second time, you get 10 years...So he's got a country which is extremely strict--draconian, if you like--about illegals entering into Mexico. And he's lecturing us on our laws here where it isn't a felony, it's only a misdemeanor. And then, even worse I think, is to see our president refusing to stand up for his own country, joining in the attack on Arizona."
Rep. Tom McClintock's strong response to Calderon's and Congress's anti-American behavior here.
Lori Ziganto comments:
Not only do the Democrats fail to figuratively stand up for America, but they literally stand up for and applaud those who seek to condemn it. Worse, it is condemnation from the foreign leader whose own country is a primary source of our illegal immigration issues. All compounded by the fact that Arizona was forced to try to deal with their immense problem on their own, since the weak-willed and spineless folks in attendance at the Joint Meeting of Congress refused to do so.
Our congressional keepers are so full of themselves that they keep forgetting about November. Byron York on that:
*Update: Via Beltway Confidential, Mexican pirates terrorize boaters on Texas lake:
The bottom line is that Obama, the Justice Department, and the entire executive branch are on Mexico's side in this dispute. On the other hand, the majority of the American people are with Arizona; a recent Wall Street Journal poll found that 64 percent of Americans support the law.
The issue will play out not only in court but at the ballot box. A few months ago, in another context, Obama said that when political disputes can't be solved by other means, then "that's what elections are for." He's right.
Keep applauding, Congress.
