Skip to comments.Senator Gordon Smith (R-OR) comes out against the Bush-Kennedy immigration bill (shamnesty)

Senator Smith of Oregon just announced on The Lars Larson Show that he will vote AGAINST CLOTURE, and that he is opposed to the current immigration bill.
Don’t care how long it took for him to find the old time religion. As long as they get the message. And it’s an added plus when they come out and slam it as amnesty of any kind.
That’s progress baby.
No doubt, Trent Lott is grinding his teeth, cursing talk radio and conservative web sites.
I’ve heard Sen Mitch McConnel from Kentucky refered to as the GOP leader in the Senate but if he’s leading I don’t know who’s following. Seems the only folks who want this bill are Bush, McConnel, Lott and Graham.
If by back-door he means the door that faces the street and has lights by it and a nice paved walkway leading to it from the drvieway.
But anyway: Here's what is stupid. If they are going to do amnesty, I would prefer that they just do it. Why hire all the new bureaucrats? Why make people travel home and pay 5K? You're just harassing them, or taxing them, really. It serves no purpose. Why harass people you are going to make citizens?
Now, the answer, that I have speculated on, is that this is all designed to be amnesty for mexicans only. But, they can't say that, so they create a bureaucratic mess that Mexicans can get through (due to proximity) much easier than anyone else.
Trent will just have to sign up for the Big Brother against conservative talk effort led by Her Heiness and Sweetheart-Deal Boxer
Don’t forget Sen. McCain has finally run a stake through the heart of his presidential run by supporting this bill.
Gordon Smith is a no good sniveling liberal but one more the righteous indignation of the voters has proven:
"When they feel the heat they will see the light"
Yea but he does think he knows who stole those strawberries.
When the RATS get through with this, the Congressional approval rating may slide into the single digit range.
Grind a little more.
Add Lamar Alexander to the list of ‘NO’ votes on cloture.
McCalien lover has now begun to understand the magnitude of his error. He’s talking about the challenges his candidacy faces, blah, blah, blah.
He’ll be deader than dead by Labor Day if not sooner. And I’m going to love every second of it. Sorry for him because he’s served the nation and sacrificed greatly, but he’s grown arrogant and out of touch.
He should resign and retire. Go play with some of friends along the border.
I presume that Smith heard from the moonbat belt (Interstate 5) as well. The libs hate this bill as much as the conservatives, for all the wrong reasons, of course.
And Corker. Tennesseans have been busy!
Otherwise known as BOHICA amnesty.
