He forgets why he opposed Sonia Sotomayor? The answer is easy: expediency of a power-hungry, principle-less politician. It was the expediency of the moment!
The facts on Mexican versus United States immigration laws. President Calderon acknowledged that Mexico’s laws are tougher than those in the United States – after calling those of the United States racist. Yet another socialist, lying, power-hungry politician:
Mexican President Felipe Calderon warned Mexico would reject any effort to “criminalize migration.” May 19, 2010
The hypocrisy of the Mexican President is evident if you consider the facts. It is terrible that the President of a country like Mexico would be so dishonest as to play politics with the lives of Mexican citizens.
Mexico, annually deports more illegal aliens than the United States does. In 2005 ALONE, Mexico deported approximately 250,000 “migrationists” from Central America. Mexico has criminalized migration.
Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are in the country legally, have the means to sustain themselves economically, not destined to be burdens on society, of economic and social benefit to society, of good character and have no criminal records, and will contribute to the general well-being of the nation.
Mexico has a record for each foreign visitor, ensuring that visa status are not violated. Visitors can not interfere with internal politics, visitors who come to Mexico under ‘false pretenses’ are deported or imprisoned and those who aid illegal immigrants are imprisoned.
President Calderon, please be honest.
“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam, and you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it, Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.” Richard Blumenthal, Norwalk in March 2008.
The only problem was he did not serve in Vietnam.
Blumenthal’s response: “On a few occasions I have misspoken about my service, and I regret that and I take full responsibility, but I will not allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.”
[May 20, 2010 update, sounds like a lot more than “misplaced words”. Sounds like Blumenthal is a lying politician:]
“I wore the uniform in Vietnam and many came back & to all kinds of disrespect. Whatever we think of war, we owe the men and women of the armed forces our unconditional support.” Stamford Veterans Days parade: Nov. 9, 2008.
“When we returned from Vietnam, I remember the taunts, the verbal and even physical abuse we encountered.” May 18, 2009, Connecticut Post, tribute to veterans

The Obama Administration authorized the killing of a United States citizen without a trial or judicial review. The New York Times states:
“The notion that the government can, in effect, execute one of its own citizens far from a combat zone, with no judicial process and based on secret intelligence, makes some legal authorities deeply uneasy. … President Obama, who campaigned for the presidency against George W. Bush-era interrogation and detention practices, has implicitly invited moral and legal scrutiny of his own policies.”

Holder Criticizes Arizona Immigration Law That He Has Not Read:
“I’ve just expressed concerns on the basis of what I’ve heard about the law. But I’m not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with people are doing the review, exactly what my position is,” Eric Holder before the House Judiciary Committee, May 13, 2010.
Kind of reminiscent of Nancy Pelosi stating that “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it“.
One has to wonder about the lack of intelligence of these people who are being sent to Washington and how uninformed about the law. It is apparent they are completely ignorant when it comes to the Constitution and the law.
Big Brother gets bigger in the new banking bill. In particular:
The bill sets up two new supersnooping federal agencies to collect data on ordinary Americans:
•The Office of Financial Research. This supposedly would predict risk in the system by collecting massive amounts of new financial data, such as patterns of credit card use.
•The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It would collect data, especially on consumer transactions.
