    This tempest in a teapot reminds me of the Lawrence O'Donnell rant about Mitt Romney's grandfather. It simply doesn't matter.
    Besides, how can a candidate do anything about the behavior of his dead grandparents? Such critiques are hit-and-run swipes at a candidate that have no suitable answer because there is none.

    First, it's almost comical how those pushing for amnesty (i.e., legalization of illegals, in any form) are obfuscating their true agenda behind the euphemism, "Comprehensive Immigration Reform." Perhaps they realize that amnesty is NOT flying with the American people, who recognize it as the fundamentally unfair, immoral, and poisonous program that it is (inasmuch as it REWARDS persons who spit upon America, its laws, and its sovereignty, with legal residency, and thus undermines the unity and integrity of the country). And, so, they conceal their true agenda behind the euphemism, "Comprehensive Immigration Reform." What's more, they hijack and misapply terms such as "compassion," "love thy neighbor," and "humane." (No, we DON'T have a "cruel and unusual punishment" problem in this country as regards the enforcement of immigration law. NOT an issue.) Certainly such cunning and subterfuge says a lot about their regard for you and me -- and for the Constitution of this land.

    Meanwhile, what does it say about Latinos, whether illegal or legal, who hold bitter contempt for Latinos who pledge genuine allegiance to this country and seek to uphold its Constitution? What does it say about their regard for America and all that it stands for?
