Do you think that out of control progressivism is responsible for the stupidity over amnesty that has been dominating the U.S. political scene? It’s not quite that complicated.

If you want to see how angry Americans create change, have a look at what’s happening in Murrieta, California. California may be the only state less likely than Barack Obama’s home state of Illinois to sprout grass roots protests against his immigration abuses. Now we know that even liberal California has a boiling point when people are pushed too far.
Sadly, bipartisan means the opposite of what it meant in politically happier times on Capitol Hill. Now it means baiting the opposition into doing something that seethes with partisanship. This has never been more excruciatingly obvious than with two of the biggest partisan charades we have seen in years.

They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.
