Mission Accomplished – For Now – As Amnesty Bill Dies

We have accomplished our mission of stopping immigration amnesty from becoming law, for the time being. Today the Democratic Party and the President suffered a stinging defeat when they failed to muster the votes needed to bring the bill to the floor for a vote. They could only get 46 yes votes even though the Democrats hold 48 seats and have two Independents who caucus with them (one member is out on sick leave). Since some Republicans voted for this, so more than a few Democrats passed on this one.

We have been putting pressure on them and we have spoken loudly. We want to keep this pressure up and they need to know we intend to get rid of any person who voted for any of this. They fear losing their jobs more than anything else and they will not like the electorate fired up in full attack mode. Look at how we have been portrayed because of our resistance to this amnesty bill. We have been called racists, xenophobes, nativists and many other things but they have not broken our will. They finally figured that we were not going to bend no matter what they said about us. We stuck to our guns and our mission has been accomplished, for now. This will be back again. They will keep ramming this down our throats until they get what they want, America be damned.

Notice I was careful how to portray our mission accomplished. George Bush has been creamed for the Mission Accomplished banner. Though he never uttered those words they have stuck to him and haunted him since that day. A picture is worth a thousand words and the picture of that banner has been worth a gold mine to the left. I know better but the President has not learned his lesson. He told people this past week that he was confident of Senate passage and went so far as to say, “See you at the signing.”

I am not saying that this bill is dead but I will say that he will not see us at the signing anytime soon.
