Bennett, with a NumbersUSA career grade of C-
, was bad news on immigration: the worst, in fact, of the entire Utah delegation
It is a particular pleasure to see him go because of the arrogant way in which he openly scorned the views of his constituents in the 2007 Amnesty battle, as I noted in Utahâ€™s Bennett prepares to ignore, betray constituents.
â€?My public position is that Iâ€™m reviewing the amendments,â€? Bennett said Tuesday.
Itâ€™s a ploy meant to defuse emotion. But hereâ€™s what Bennettâ€™s staffers are not saying: he plans to vote for it.
reports on Bennettâ€™s demise are coy about what motivated his defeat. Treating the interests and preferences of his constituents with contempt, as on the immigration question, is a good starting point.
In fact, VDARE.com suggests attitudes on immigration comprise a great acid test of how a would-be Congressthing is likely to treat his electorate generally, especially on key Inside-the-Beltway objectives like nation-destruction
Patriots will hope the Bennett fashion spreads south
