I don’t know about you, but the spectacle of our elected representatives (Dems in particular) standing to cheer Mexican President Calderon as he lectured the American people on the injustice of Arizona’s new immigration law was infuriating. And a bit nauseating.
That’s just the sort of behavior that’s going to garner them some serious comeuppance come November. I can’t wait to vote.
Anyway, I fired off a missive to Senators Warner and Webb here in VA to register my disgust with both Calderon and the Democrats’ behavior. It will be interesting to see if/how they respond. Here’s what I wrote:
The Honorable Senator Jim Webb

Washington, DC 20510
It is difficult for me to convey the utter disdain I have for Mexican President Calderon’s comments from the House floor today. He has neither the right nor the place to lecture United States citizens on immigration law enforcement — particularly when Mexico’s own immigration laws are so stringent and, I daresay, merciless.
The only thing more contemptible than President Calderon’s odious comments was the standing ovation Democrats gave him in response.
I would like to ask, Senator, if you were among those who stood to cheer. I hope not. But the courtesy of a reply to that specific question would be appreciated.
