Captain Capitulate in his usual way goes to the most obscure and trivial to support his support of amnesty. There actually are Conservative answers and challenges to the current Left-Demo campaign for amnesty, but not Republican answers. For over 15 tears Hughie's answer to any discussiong with anti-amnesty people is "i'm right! Yopu'te wrong!"...not the epitome of antellectual acumen. He constantly shows why he has never had anything more than a 1.1 Arbitron rating (dead last in his time slot for English-language talk radio) in the huge LA-Orange Counties radio market...not even beating Lefties like like Randy Rhodes

Poor, poor, poor Hughie! He's being assailed for being pro-amnesty (on the record as such) by all the people he's embarrassed about being associated with in the eyes of Lefties. It isn't that he can't defend his non-position, it's just that he can't defend his position.

Jim...Hughie is very, very, very short on answers, thoughts or principled positions on Migration. As a long time listener of his, his standard answer to all things migrant is to totally ignore the issue or go on a vein-bulging rant about "nativists" and "pot and pan bangers" if someone sneaks in a migrant comment, followed personal denigration and a hang-up on the caller.

Hughie just does't have an argument based on principles either for or against amnesty, just intellectual laziness. Goind back to early Bush era, he was among the first Republicans to attack Tancredo in highly personal terms and offerred no argoments against him other than "i'm right, you're wrong!"...an actual quote of Hughie's that's ben repeated over the years. Hughie, lie most Republicans, is extremely concerned that Lefties who despise him will think bad things about him and label him a raaaycist. Unlike anti-illegal migration anti-amnestyConservatives, Hughie - as a Republican - will not define himself as anti-illegal immigration as opposed to pro-legal migration, he lets that Left define the terms of debate.

Rachel, you've been listening to Hugh Hewitt for far, far too long. No one can tell you what Mitt held (holds) as a core value, other than "I'm not Obama". Conservative Republicans, as opposed to Republican Conservatives, have always proudly been the Party to manage Demo-Left proposals...and poorly. Also the Party to be far, far too tasteful to debate substantive issues - illegal immigration, gun-control, political corruption (both parties), term limits - in public and never so gauche as to even mention principles and values.
In the last twenty -odd years of Prez Campsigns I've resignedly voted and more-or-less enthusiastically worked twice for the Not-Clinton, one time for the Not-Gore, one time for the Not-Kerry and one-time with GREAT enthusiasm and energy worked and voted for Sarah Palin. This time the Stoopid Party is giving me it's usual choice. Gawd save the mark!! Here in SoCal in the SFV all the usual workers and volunteers are reved up to take every single vote for the Not-Obama. Outside of Hugh Hewitt's scorching hot man-crush for Mitt, NO ONE is a passionate Mitti-sta. He has no discernible philosophical or ideological commitment, he does flip-flop ("mature with time", possibly?) and he hasno expressed vision glowing, or otherwiswe for the U.S.
Dearest DH....just to add to your comment from my life experience: in the last twenty -odd years of Prez Campsigns I've resignedly voted and more-or-less enthusiastically worked twice for the Not-Clinton, one time for the Not-Gore, one time for the Not-Kerry and one-time with GREAT enthusiasm and energy worked and voted for Sarah Palin.

JEEZ MAREEZ, Derek!! Rombo's campaign has "to grow some balls"?? It took you this long to figute that one out?? I hate to say it, but you sound like Hugh Hewitt or a Republican who's started to see - at long last - the light. If you were alive for the last Prez campaign this was his problem then. Now he has a campaign staff composed of the really perceptive guys (sarcasm) from McCain's fiasco plus the usual Empty Suits we're used to seeing. I defy anyone to link Mitt to a past and current political philosophy or vision for America other than he is definitely not Obama. Like many Conservatives, I'll bathe in Lysol, put on a full body Hazmat suit with independent oxygen supply, don rubber gloves, hold my breath and vote for Mitt.
Historically the money-changing and sale of sacrifice animals in the Temple was run by the family of the High Priest with shekels going to him and his family, the priests and the legion of Temple employees. Whatever your viewpoint on Jesus, he knew a racket and a corrupt bureaucracy when He saw one. And took direct action. Possibly a role model both secular and religious for our time?? Naaaaaaaaaah!!!
You mean "callings" and "ministries" like Greeter Ministry, Parking Lot Ministry On Sunday, Parking Lot Ministry ON Wednesday Bible Study Nite, Cookie and Cake Purchase Ministry, Sunday KiddyCare Ministry, etcetc.? I could go on but I'm sure you get my drift.
