Google News as of Saturday night showed little sign of meaningful comment by traditional conduits on the significance of this insertion of an open-borders enthusiast into the Thompson operation. However, Bloggers have got the message, and are responding.
I will not support Fred Thompson says And Rightly So!
The fact that Thompson has some questionable votes on his recordâ€¦along with this hiring of Mr. Abraham, tells me all I need to know. He doesnâ€™t get my support. And he shouldnâ€™t get the support of anyone who has a problem with the current immigration status: If Thompson is willing to hire such open border advocates for his campaign, imagine who heâ€™d place into important government positions in charge of borders and national security.
â€?Conservatives bewareâ€¦â€™ says Vanishing American:
Although we read Thompson`s comments on the appalling Hazleton decision, and we see that he is essentially saying the `right` thing, (though he carefully refers to illegal immigration only), talk is cheap, and actions speak louder than words. So despite his saying what a prudent candidate would say about the court decision on Hazleton, his choice of Abraham speaks louder than his comments about illegal immigration.

Bloggin on down the Rogue also gets straight to the point:

Left to the MSM Inside-the-Beltway crowd Abrahamâ€™s appointment would be a ripple. But with facts and arguments circulating so rapidly, my guess is it will prove to be a lethal event.
