Immigration Reform Failure Hurts Republicans?

| | Comments (0)
I've talked to a lot of Republicans who have been energized by their victory in blocking the immigration reform bill. A former independent angry at both parties, Jim Gilchrist (founder of the Minuteman Project) said on Saturday that he became a Republican late last year, shortly before the 2006 elections.

I see this as helping the Republican party. Sure, some mdoerates aren't pleased about it, but few if any of them will leave the party over this one issue. It was the right wing that was in danger of being alienated from the party over this, and it seems to have had the opposite effect. If the bill had passed, then that might have hurt the party, but ... it seems to me that it's helped.

Damn You, Karl Rove!
