Bachmann is a little late. Cain surged ahead when he spoke out against Perry on
the issue of illegal aliens, so it smacks of a Hail Mary pass.But she gets
points for talking a bit about the lack of control regarding sponsorship and
guarding against immigrants becoming public charges. That has been part of her
message all along. She failed to say it loudly, but it is an important part of
the social dialog. Far too many immigrants are tapping into social services.
(And I'm not talking about illegal aliens here.)The more the candidates
give themselves permission to talk about these issues, the better off we are.By far Cain has been the most outspoken on the immigration issue. His candor
is one reason people like him.
