Immigration THE Losing Issue?

Someone has to do it, and it might as well be me.

Hey Richard Nadler, the Republicans didn’t lose in November because of the immigration issue!

Did anyone even hear the I-word offered up in a single interview or debate?  Perhaps mentioned as the deliberately vague “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” and then only when asked about it first.  Or when McCain and Obama both visited the Council on La Raza.

Apparently it had nothing to do with war-fatigue, George W. Bush-fatigue, or the ECONOMY (stupid).

Maybe Nadler forgot that McCain (the face of the Republicans as the GOP’s presidential candidate) led the way on “bipartisan” Comprehensive Immigration Reform in 2006.

If immigration was a losing issue for the GOP in the last election, it was the conservatives they lost.  Not the other way around.
