God bless Hillary Clinton?!

Tony Blankley: God bless Hillary Clinton?!

Tony Blankley sees HRC's sudden concern for illegal immigration a godsend and he may be right. I hadn't thought of it in this way. Hmmm. I had posted about this a few days ago here.

But I have a hunch that there will be a large unwanted guest in Washington next year -- immigration and border control reform legislation. .......
What I suspect may be a gathering storm on President Bush's horizon in 2005 is a confluence of factors that will force on Washington a fundamental immigration reform -- one that will seek to genuinely secure our borders.
This is something that up until now neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party has wanted, and that the mainstream media have not pressured the politicians to deliver on.

In the last few weeks, the ever cold-blooded Miss Hillary has started to stake out a position to the right of the Republican Party. Just listen to her Pat Buchananesque defiance:

[I do] not think that we have protected our borders or our ports ... we can do more and we can do better ... I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants ... Clearly we have to make some tough decisions as a country, and one of them ought to be coming up with a much better entry-and-exit system so that if we are going to let people in for ... work … let's have a system that keeps track of them ... People have to stop employing illegal immigrants.

These are hardly idle pensees coming from The Iron Maiden of Chappaqua. Rather, it is a part, and a big part, of her calculated strategy to shed her liberal image and seize the White House from the Republicans in 2008 by attacking them on the most vulnerable part of their right flank: open borders, illegal immigration and lax anti-terrorist security.

I never thought I would write the following words, but: God bless Hillary Clinton. Though her motives are cynical, their effects may well be vital both to our national security and to our sovereign responsibility to control our borders.

But they ignore Hillary at their mortal peril.

The funny thing about Hillary though is the speak of triangulation. What is she really saying and will Hillary truly come down on illegal aliens. I think not! She thinks we can take care of it with another government system of tracking illegals coming IN and going OUT of the country. Now what good will that do? But, if nothing else, Hillary's new tactic will mobilize Republican politicians to ahhh maybe LISTEN to their constituents. How's that for a novel approach!
