GILLIBRAND WOULD LIKELY OPPOSE COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM

Rate this Entry

New York's pro-immigration community has only known about the nomination for a few hours, but they've swung in to action to put the brakes on this disastrous pick. The Orange Country Register's Dena Bunis is the first to report.

    'this disastrous pick'

    Disastrous? Aren't you being overly dramatic over a moderate Democrat? Is it that she favors rule of law or a belief that the Second Amendment actually means something which disqualifies her? Congratulations, Senator Gillibrand! We need more non-sell out Democrats like you move up in the party!

    Blue Dog Democrat: Republicans disguised as democrats. These guys most of the time side with GOP.

    She will vote against the obama bill and want Bush tax cuts. Yippee! Dems just cannot keep things given to them. Great! COme 2010 The Big O honeymoon is over, God forbid things do not happen as expected, people will punish the Dems big time.

    "God forbid things do not happen as expected, people will punish the Dems big time."

    That wouldn't be surprising to me. If Bush was incompetent, I don't have appropriate words for the Congress. Although Obama clearly seemed to be the better Presidential candidate, as a Senator he was third rate. It could be because he couldn't work the system. Let's see if he can do that as President.

    For too long, the Democrats have gotten away by pinning all their failures on Bush and the Republicans. Now that they have unlimited power, they need to either get innovative about their excuses or deliver.

    Several antis have been replace by pros. Shaheen replaced anti-CIR Sununu, the Udall brothers both replaced people who were not in favor of CIR, Mark Warner replaced John Warner. Dont know how Begich will vote. But, Dems do have the knack of blowing opportunities and the nomination of Burris, Gillibrand and Bennett guarantees at least a loss of one to two of those seats come November 2, 2010. I hope Obama has a little bit of intelligence not to appoint any more Senators to the cabinet. Right now, Dems will likely hold the Senate despite two moron governors and one crooked governor, just because the GOP defends more seats. Whether Gillibrand is a xenophobe like the folks at CIS and FAIR can only be determined by her votes on EMB and H1B and other issues regarding legal immigration. As far as I know unlike Nancy Boyda who deservedly lost her seat to GOP in Kansas after pandering to nativists she is not a member of the racist House Immigration Reform Caucus. But, time will tell. As far as I can see she is another Rahm Immanuel. Whether she is pro immigration or not, Governor Patterson has undermined the ability of the Dems to hold the Senate seat in 2010 and to hold her now vacant House seat as well. Finally, I do hope that Harry Reid is intelligent enough not to give her a seat on the Senate Judiciary Committee or the Senate Immigration Sub-Committee, but based on his past behavior , intelligence is definitely not among Harry Reid's quality.
