a.k.a., "Let's talk about how to undercut, smear and destroy any Conservative challengers."
He is in the Chamber of Commerce camp on the issue, believing that giving amnesty and/or citizenship to 11-20 million illegals will somehow be a boon to our economy, and to the Republican party. He speaks in broad platitudes about how "Immigration reform is a crucial symbol in the GOP reach-out effort," and "Pro-growth immigration reform will strengthen the shaky economy. Politically it will help the shaky GOP." Those are his actual words from his article from the National Review last May. We do not need immigration reform; we simply need to enforce the laws that already exist. "Immigration reform" is nothing but code for "fast-tracked amnesty for millions of law-breakers." Those who believe that legalizing illegal aliens via comprehensive immigration reform, and softening our borders, are whistling past the graveyard. And their belief that such actions will benefit the economy and/or the Republican Party is based in archaic notions of immigration, and in an incredible naivete.

For the first time in my adult life, I am not proud to be an American.
Good article! Jindal does indeed get it. Now if we can just convince Mr. Kudlow that lax immigration laws are counter-productive to any attempts to prevent the further infiltration of radical Islam within our borders.
That should be "pitocin," not "piton"
I think that the natural birth movement is in response to the way that modern medicine has turned childbirth into just another medical procedure. Many doctors push for scheduled c-sections, using scare tactics and worst-case scenarios. This is especially effective for first-time expecting parents. Too many doctors treat an unborn baby like a mass that needs to be extracted from the woman's body. So mothers are pumped full of drugs like piton, bupivacaine, chloroprocaine, lidocaine, Demerol, Fenatyl, Morphine, to name just a few. Not to mention the drugs used during general anesthesia. These drugs can and do have an effect on the mother and/or baby. I don't see anything wrong with opting for more natural methods, rather than treating childbirth immediately as a major surgical procedure (unless there happen to be major complications from the outset). Of course, birthing in the woods, or even at home, without a doctor present is an extreme that I'm personally not comfortable with. My wife did a natural birth, without any drugs at all (bless her heart!). We sought the assistance of a doula (midwife), but the birth took place in a hospital room, with a doctor presiding over the actual delivery. So we got the best of both worlds. I was skeptical of the whole doula thing initially (seemed to hippie to me); however, she was fan-tas-tic! We couldn't have done it without her. The nursing staff was helpful too, but the doula was there only for my wife. She was her personal coach. The doctor (not even our own) basically showed up to catch the baby, and then she was out the door. But it was nice to know that if we needed emergency attention, it was right there for us. Our baby was never at risk, and we got a "natural" birth experience. What I'm saying is: it doesn't have to be an either/or proposition.

The First Tea Party President?

Rand must think that the TEA Party supporters have very short memories. He jumped in bed with Mitch McConnell (sorry for the mental imagery) as soon as he got the chance. Yes, that would be the very same McConnell who openly stated that he intended to "crush" the TEA Party in 2014. He tried as hard as he could to make good on that threat as he and his NRSC worked feverishly to support old RINOs like Thad Cochran, while knee-capping and slandering good, young Conservatives like Chris McDaniel and Milton Wolf. And Rand was standing at Mitch's side throughout it all But....now that it's time to shift back to campaign mode, Rand must once again pretend to be something that he is not so that he may once again use the TEA Party as his own personal footstool to help him reach that cookie jar on the top shelf. Sorry, but I ain't buying it this time, Senator Paul.
Oh lordy, lordy, LORDY! What a lame attempt at appealing to Heartland America. It's as phony as Hillary's laugh, and everything else about her. Hillary cares as much about the folks in the Heartland as she does about the families of those who were killed in Benghazi! Mercifully, comments have been disabled on Youtube.
Are we supposed to believe that this means that the major networks don't like Obama anymore?? Folks, this is all part of the strategy! Of course Obama doesn't want the major networks broadcasting this. He wants to directly target his new constituency.....illegal aliens. He wants as few American citizens viewing this as is humanly possible. He knows that the majority of the US citizenry does not support this.
