Michael Barone's shallow, 2470-word logical fallacy ("A Nation Built for Immigrants", WSJ) - 09/22/13

In the Wall Street Journal, Michael Barone offers "A Nation Built for Immigrants" [1], a 2470-word article designed to make elites feel good about the mass immigration they support. The entire article is a logical fallacy: it claims that current immigration will work out just like former immigration did. That claim is hardly certain because the U.S. and those immigrating here are quite different...

Michael Barone admits attrition works ("self deport", immigration) - 04/11/12

Michael Barone writes (link): Net illegal immigration from Mexico has fallen to zero, reports Amanda Peterson Beadle in a blogpost at the left-wing Think Progress... ...It’s been apparent for some time that immigration from Mexico and Latin America fell off sharply during the 2007-09 recession and has not rebounded since. Illegals from Mexico are apparently continuing to self-deport (to use Mitt...

Michael Barone isn't outraged by anti-American DREAM Act - 05/15/11

... some U.S. citizens of college. Michael Barone of the Washington Examiner - discussing Obama's latest immigration speech - isn't exactly perturbed by the anti-American bill (link): It's obvious that nothing like the legalization (opponents say "amnesty") provisions considered in 2007 can pass in this Congress. They can never pass the Republican House, where Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith is a...

Obama dines with illegal immigration-supporting conservatives David Brooks and ? - 01/13/09

... Kudlow, Rich Lowry, Peggy Noonan, Michael Barone, and Paul Gigot. None of those are border hawks, with Kudlow being a clueless supporter, Barone being a Brooks-style complete hack, and Gigot working for the Wall Street Journal, a paper that wishes there was no border at all.

Melinda Zosh lets Jason Riley/WSJ engage in logical fallacy, Michael Barone spout nonsense - 06/23/08

... bright. She also provides the following Michael Barone quote that makes me question his sanity: "Our elites have been putting barriers in the way of immigration... Ultimately, the good sense of the people overwhelms the nonsense of the elites." Any reporter worth her salt would have pointed out that it's the elites that have constantly pushed massive immigration, and that everyone else opposes...

E.J. Dionne, Chris Cillizza/WaPo realize: voters oppose illegal immigration (Niki Tsongas) - 10/19/07

... editorial page, Arlen Specter, and Michael Barone. Now, we turn to the Washington Post's E.J. Dionne ("Test Run For 2008", link). Note, of course, that the Washington Post explicitly supports illegal immigration: In Massachusetts's 5th Congressional District -- a collection of mill towns and affluent and blue-collar suburbs north of Boston -- the surprise issue was illegal immigration.

Senate immigration amnesty bill: the supporters - 05/21/07

... Safely outside the compound, Michael Barone phones in to say that he supports the bill, despite not having read it. * In the basement of the compound, Captain Ed decides to be even more like Hugh Hewitt than Hugh Hewitt, saying today [1] that "Conceptually, I think it could work -- but the bill doesn't quite match the concepts outlined in the announcement, either." In a previous post [2], he...

Bonnie Erbe/Michael Barone on U.S. Attorneys being fired - 03/08/07

... particles from Mars had penetrated Michael Barone's thick skull, forcing him to say: The emerging scandal surrounding the dismissals of eight former U.S. attorneys should signify to American voters the depth, breadth, and permeation of corruption in the Bush administration. Sully was stunned, but now says: A reader alerts me that it might have been a hacker's work. It's not listed on his blog's...

"Open-Borders Advocates Distort Election Results" - 11/20/06

... editorial page, Arlen Specter, and Michael Barone among others have tried to claim that some GOP losses were due to opposition to an illegal alien amnesty. How this is wrong was discussed in NRO on Graf/Hayworth election results myth among other entries.

This year’s anti-Republican wave was indiscriminate, washing away such immigration hawks as John Hostettler and Charles Taylor, but also such amnesty supporters as Mike DeWine and Lincoln Chafee. In other places, Republicans were able to withstand the wave in part because they opposed amnesty: Chris...

George Bush intentionally misleads about John Kerry Iraq comment - 10/31/06

Speaking in Georgia about an hour ago, president Bush intentionally distorted John Kerry's earlier comments about Iraq. Yesterday, speaking at Pasadena City College, Kerry said this: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." The explanation is that he meant to...

What the "Northern Alliance" won't ask Michael Barone - 08/11/06

... will be interviewing TV pundit Michael Barone tomorrow at 1pm Eastern. The topic of discussion will be the repurposed edition of his book The New Americans ("How the melting pot can work again"). Apparently it's on a real radio station (not shortwave!) that can be streamed over the web. I am going on record as stating that this will be a puffball interview that strongly favors the Bush/Fox/...

... Riding High", which links to Michael Barone's "Stronger Than He Seems". (Insty would link to both analyses, but he's on vacation.) On the other hand, I note that PardonMyEnglish no longer features a big picture of Bush as the background of their site. Instead, it's been replaced with a picture of the... Golden Gate Bridge.

Cracks in the facade? - 01/19/05

Jonah Goldberg: Michael Barone has a good op-ed on Bush's inauguration and second inaugurals in general. What I find particularly interesting is his suggestion that Bush's address will most resemble Woodrow Wilson's. Which reminds me of something that's been rattling around in my head for a while. Intellectual honesty should force us to at least admit that A) Barone's right and B) the...

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE OOOIIILLLL!!!! - 04/07/03

Insty points to this Michael Barone article which proposes an Alaskan-oil-revenues type plan for the people of Iraq. Which is great. But, all I could think about as I read it was, "how much could I skim off the top if I were the one in charge of it?" Not that I or those in charge would, just something to tuck away in the far recesses of your mind.
