How did this guy get elected?
“This amendment is racist. I think it’s directed basically to people who speak Spanish,” the Democrat said during the already tense debate over immigration reform.
Moments later, the Senate approved the measure on a 63-34 vote. Virtually all Republicans were joined by 11 Democrats to approve the largely symbolic amendment. Immediately following that vote, the Senate approved a second amendment, declaring on a 58-39 vote that English is the “common and unifying language.”
Such proposals enjoy overwhelming support among American voters.
That’s right – the American voters, the ones who elected Reid to power and the same ones who can force retirement on the Senator. He should be removed, for his own safety, as soon as possible.
How much support does the “English Only” issue have?
A poll by Zogby International earlier this year found that 84 percent of Americans say English should be the official language of government operations. The same poll found that 77 percent of Hispanics agree.
And it’s a bipartisan issue, according to the poll, which found that 92 percent of Republicans and 82 percent of Democrats approve making English the country’s official language.
So, what in the world could possess Reid to stand up and claim an English only amendment is racist? One can only wonder. Harry Reid, his partner in crime Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin and other wacko moonbats in Congress are so preconditioned to grab a microphone and vehemently denounce any proposed legislation that comes from a Republican’s mouth that they let words and thoughts escape without realizing just how idiotic they appear. It’s lunacy.
Congratulations to all the liberals out there – you’ve picked real winners to lead your party.
