"And there's no better way for a white politician to go on the offensive, to prove his racial sensitivity bona fides, than by speaking to these groups, and appearing to endorse their agendas and activities"

.....and then go back to living their own protected lives with themselves and their families as far away as possible from the effects of what they say they support while calling those who don't have that privilege racists and xenophobes.

Again, few prominent public figures are going to have the guts to speak out against immigration, even though its extent is so extreme that it is demographically transforming the country. Because, obviously, almost all immigrants are non-white, and so you will (inevitably) be accused of racism, nativism, etc. Most politicians, especially, decide they cannot take the risk of being tarred that way. And there's no better way for a white politician to go on the offensive, to prove his racial sensitivity bona fides, than by speaking to these groups, and appearing to endorse their agendas and activities.

Well Clinton, Rove and Brownback fit right in with this group. They are all pro open borders. Walk right in and help yourself to America.

If I was the VP i'd avoid any large crowds in Ca. If the terrorists have found as much WMD in Iraq and the American troops have, someone is gonna get whacked. What better place than the coast of Ca where the west to east wind will spread it far and wide. The dimwits have helped the criminals carry it cross the border, especially in southern Ca. It's gonna happen, just a matter of when. I say this knowing (I've have been told by the lefties) that there is no WMD in Iraq and never was. I'll just stand back and watch hundreds of thousand killed and disabled by something that never existed.
