While I was analyzing President Obama`s recent immigration speech, concluding
contrary to the conventional wisdom that he`s really serious, I noted that the appalling Karl Rove
had devoted most of his response
to touting the need for a "guest worker"
Now I see Newt Gingrich
also cited the need for a "guest worker"
program in his interview
with Greta van Susteren on Saturday.
This is no coincience, comrades. Of course, it`s electoral madness to propose a guest worker program in the midst of record unemployment
. The GOP`s corporate donors must be very
insistent. Obviously, the word has gone out, and the chain jerked.
One good thing about corporate donors: they really are totally selfish and short-sighted. Thus I was delighted to see that Colorado horse heiress Helen Krieble
instantly threw her Hispanic allies
over the side when I asked her in 2009 how her pet guest worker plan could be reconciled with the "citizen child"
clause—which, as currently interpreted, means guest workers` U.S.-born children are technically citizens and thus potential voters for the ethnic lobbies.
Now more than ever, birthright citizenship looms as decisive battle
