I’m Not Surprised You’re Surprised

The level of stupidity inside the Republican Party has reached new heights. Yah. Apparently, a number of GOP Senators are ‘surprised’ at the INTENSE negative reaction from their constituents at the lamest of lame immigration bill now before Congress.

In his speech Tuesday on immigration reform, President Bush was trying to provide political cover for members of Congress to support the legislation. That could be tough. Republicans are getting an earful on immigration. “I have learned some new words from some of my constituents,” Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Arizona, said.

The angry response comes as a shock. “The level of intensity and volume is, I think, surprising,” CNN contributor and radio talk show host Bill Bennett said. “We’ve talked to a number of Republican senators, and they confessed to being surprised by the reaction.” There’s a big difference in intensity. Among those who favor a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, 28 percent say the issue is extremely important to them, according to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll.

Those who oppose a path to citizenship feel much more strongly about the issue. Forty-seven percent say it’s extremely important.

Is this not a CLEAR indication of the complete DISCONNECT Republicans have with their conservative members? Uh…..yah John McCain, George Bush…..Lindsey ‘you miserable cur’ Graham- it is.
