Dean: GOP to Scapegoat Immigrants in Next Election
At a rally, Dean garnered the loudest applause when he said Republicans would make immigration a pivotal issue during upcoming elections, as they did gay marriage and affirmative action in previous elections.
That's because those were winning issues for us then as well.
"Do you know who the scapegoats are going to be? Immigrants," he said. "In Colorado, the chairman of the Republican Party endorsed Tom Tancredo (search) for re-election. That is morally reprehensible. The governor of California, a supposed moderate Republican, invited the Minutemen to visit California. We do not need vigilante justice."
This is good news for us if the Democrats want to take the side of criminals when it comes time to debate this issue in upcoming elections. I had assumed that they would try their best to avoid the issue, (with a little help from their friends in the media) or offer the generic "we must reform the immigration system" response followed by no specifics.
But instead the liberals go back to their usual tactic of calling Republicans names. I can only hope that they start calling us names in Spanish, that would go over real well with the electorate.
