TANCREDO TO RETIRE!

Rate this Entry

Upon conclusion of his doomed presidential campaign and conclusion of his current term, fringe anti-immigration Congressman Tom Tancredo will resign his seat in Congress. Tancredo told the Rocky Mountain News

"It's the fact that I really believe I have done all I can do in the House, especially about the issue which I care greatly about [immigration]."

Some in the Colorado political community are speculating Tancredo will seek to oppose Colorado's Democratic Senator Ken Salazar when that seat comes up for re-election in 2010.

    I always ask myself if it is worth to be stressed out dealing with the never-end immigration stress. America is a great country but not the only one on the planet. Keep open minded my friends ... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/7057730.stm

    immigrants come to places where they can make more money. with the falling dollar and antiimmigrant push can cause mass exodus they wont create another soviet union.then lou and others will have to work 24 hours with no break(no sleep) working in meat factories and investment banks.is somebody dreaming of that world? I think this election will teach these antiimmigrants a lesson.

    While this is great news I do not think this guy is going away. As the piece says he will make aBid foir the Senate doubt that he will suceed but I think he will continue to inflict damage and pain from the offices of NumbersUSA as a powerful lobby. Either way is good to know that he won't be getting paid from my Tax dollars I take that any day of the week.

    Doh, you aren't aware of the retirement that (even one term) members of Congress get. As well as lifelong healthcare.

    Many members of Congress don't want to socialize healthcare. Well, except their own of course. They'd never give that up.

    Kind of like how Tancredo supported term limits... just not his own...

    The way things work in the House there is no future in being in the minority. Tancedro knows that. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

    MG:

    Re your remark about not having gone to a Third World country. We are transitting through Bangkok Airport. I haven't been here in 14 years. I am amazed at what they have accomplished in that time. The shoppimg is amazing & better than Singapore's Changi and the Thai Royal First lounge is even better than BAs Concorde lounge at LHR. They have surpassed Singapore's Changi Airport. Greg can comment on that. We need to improve our airports to catch up, not the other way around!

    I'd like to tour Thailand - actually my sister leaves for a two month vacation there on the 5th. I wish I could take two months off ;-)

    Any reason that an American woman with a male travel partner wouldn't want to vacation in Thailand right now? I'm thinking of the problems in neighboring countries...any spillage of problems?

    My brother is in Iraq right now - on a 15 month "vacation" as a doctor there. I think I'd rather be in Thailand.

    As far as the airports, I've never been to a bad one in terms of security. I traveled international shortly after 9/11 and during some "code orange" periods - or whatever color the fear code was at the time. Lines were long, and everyone stressed, but customs wasn't too bad.

    Travel international with young children sometime - I'd rather be interrogated by customs (and maybe a good waterboarding) before I do that again. If I was treated rudely, I wasn't aware of it because I was distracted.

    I thought Changi in Singapore was nice, but I wasn't bowled over. Believe it or not, the airport I find one of the nicest I know in any country is Terminal A in Detroit. I love flying through there. Had a chance to stay in the Westin in the terminal recently and it was also really nice. That airport used to be the worst.

    I've never been unhappy with my stay at a Westin. Great hotels. The one in Atlanta was memorable. They always have good restraunts.

    I never would suspect Detroit of having good hotels - given the reputation.

    "Any reason that an American woman with a male travel partner wouldn't want to vacation in Thailand right now?"

    From what I hear from my friends, no. Thailand is popular with lots of Americans. INS has their regional HQs there. BKK from the air seems to have improved considerably from when I was there last. Our cruise ends in BKK and I will stop then for two days so I should have first hand experience at that time.

    "Believe it or not, the airport I find one of the nicest I know in any country is Terminal A in Detroit."

    I haven't been to DTW. Some of the airports that I like stateside are MSP, MCO & LAS. JFK is a disaster especially if you are not a New Yorker and are coming from overseas and connecting to a domestic flight with a different airline.
