Mel Martinez stabs base in back, will promote massive immigration
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
The latest example comes from the RNC chair-elect, Senator Mel Martinez:
...[He] said his goal will be to undo the election damage done by the border-enforcement-first message of most Republicans -- which he called "harshness only."Instead of, for instance, condemning the many Democrats who lied about their immigration positions or condemning Democrats for supporting illegal immigration and opposing border security, he's falsely accusing those in his own party of "bashing people". The far-left, the Democrats, and the MSM will probably use his own words against any other GOP candidate who supports our immigration laws.
...Speaking to reporters after the Oval Office announcement, Mr. Martinez said he was "not going to do a post-mortem on the election here today." Moments later, though, he did a post-mortem on immigration, saying he saw a clear message on that issue.
..."I think we have to understand that the election did speak to one issue, and that was that -- it's not about bashing people, it's about presenting a hopeful face," said Mr. Martinez, who won his seat in 2004...
..."Border security only, enforcement only, harshness only is not the message that I believe America wants to convey," Mr. Martinez said...
Martinez' candidacy for head of the RNC will be decided in January. This would be a good opportunity for every GOP member to think for themselves and turn their backs on Bush, Rove, Martinez, and all the other GOP leaders who do not have the best interests of the U.S. at heart.
RNC member Randy Pullen - former chairman of a committee in favor of Arizona's Proposition 200 - says it's "another Harriet Miers moment". Hopefully it will be that, and hopefully the GOP base will tire of the frequency of such "moments" and decide that turning their backs on Bush is the best course of action for the GOP and for the country.
