Needs Must: Drudge Resorts To Dog Whistling About Immigration`s Unemployment Impact.
Drudge: Desperate Times, Desperate Measures
Needs must when the Devil Drives. With Romney’s pitiful failure to mobilize the white vote leaving the election result questionable, the Drudge Report has altered course again and featured PAPER: Two-thirds of jobs go to immigrants during past four years…
This links to Two-thirds of jobs go to immigrants during Obama’s four years by Stephen Dinan The Washington Times Wednesday October 31, 2012

But Patriots should take heart: that this super-alert student of public sensibilities thinks this flag worth raising proves the issue has vitality.
Our time will come.
